Training and exercises are crucial for bridging the gap between written procedures and the reality on the ground, and preparing people in an organisation to act in the face of uncertainty. Importantly, training should never be another layer of bureaucracy that is imposed on the employee, but a relevant and dynamic activity, bringing reflection and improvement to the organisation.

Guardian delivers best-in-class training across a range of security and crisis management-related fields. Everything we teach is grounded in real-life experience and evidence. We only use skilled instructors with both practical and educational experience, and a high level of professionalism. Since our goal is to maximise the outcome for the participants, we always prioritise the inclusion of live drills and practical exercises in our courses. All courses can be tailor-made to meet the requirements of your organisation.

Crisis Management Team exercises (CMTex) – This exercise is a one- or two-day practice of written and approved procedures. The CMTex should be conducted on a regular basis, enabling the management to react swiftly and effectively to emerging crises.

Hostile Environment Awareness Training (HEAT) – HEAT is a three- to five-day course that enables the employee to take care of his/her own safety and security in high-risk areas, and to survive critical situations. The course provides participants with the knowledge and skills to lower potential risks and cope with threats, injuries, hostage takings, terrorist attacks, armed clashes, and more.

Travel Security Awareness Training (TSAT) – This is a one-day course that prepares employees for travel activity in middle- and high-risk countries. Subjects such as travel assessment, stress handling, crime prevention, and hostage survival will be on the agenda.

Remote First Aid – Guardian offers a remote first aid course that is a must-have for people travelling and working in remote areas around the world. The course includes all the basic features from a standard first aid course. Participants will benefit from a combination of both teaching and practical exercises, which will prepare them in how to conduct life saving first aid in areas where medical assistance is far away.

Crisis Communication Training – Guardian and Ulveman & Børsting offer a one-day crisis communication workshop designed for communication teams in the organisational crisis management setup. The workshop is an introduction to the best practice and the role of communication in crisis management work, and the participants will receive direct training in fulfilling their specific roles in a simulated crisis.

Maritime Security Courses – Guardian also offers various training within maritime security, such as ISPS and MSO courses, as well as exercises within port security.

Advanced Driving Course – Over two to three days of training, this course aims to improve the defensive driving skills of drivers to pre-empt accidents. Moreover, drivers will learn the appropriate response and actions, should they be involved in accidents.

Female Security Awareness Training (FSAT) – Guardian is pleased to announce our new security course designed for female travellers. Female Security Awareness Training (FSAT) will prepare the participants for travelling and working in medium- and high-risk areas, with focus on the threats related to being a female traveller, whether travelling alone or in a group.

Tailored security courses: All organisations operate under different conditions. Guardian can provide tailored security courses that match the context of your operations, or a specific group of personnel, all the way down to the individual level. Our training department will design the course  in consultation with you to meet your specific needs and requirements.
