Hostile environment training for media is aimed at providing skills and knowledge to help media workers prepare for and function within potentially hostile environments. You can find out more about us on our main website.
Lazarus Training has preset-designed hostile environments training courses or can produce bespoke training covering hostile environments and/or remote first aid. We can tailor the training to reflect both high-risk and medium-risk environments.
Our training team has recent experience on the ground in Afghanistan, Pakistan, West Africa, Egypt, Lebanon, Turkey/Syria border, East Africa, and Thailand. We don’t just teach this stuff, or rely upon “old” stories from our army days, we continue to deploy, with staff in Ukraine in July, October, November and December 2022, January, April and June 2023, and west Africa in August.
At Lazarus Training we pride ourselves on listening to the client and working with them to cover their specific needs, so all group course bookings are treated as bespoke events. Course content is varied to meet the needs of each client group but would typically cover:
Planning before the trip
Selection of kit and equipment
Dealing with people, conflict and aggression
Weapon and explosive awareness [please note this isn’t training you to use weapons]
Explosive Remnants of War & Mines
Vehicle and driver safety
Hostile environments first aid training
