The purpose of Hostile Environmental Awareness Training or HEAT is to create awareness of how to respond to scenarios you are likely to encounter while working in a hostile or hazardous environment. Each course is interactive and requires a participatory approach. We combine theory with group work, audio-visual methods, exercises, and simulations. The training takes place over two half-day online theoretical lessons and two full-day in person simulations. In order to receive your HEAT certification, both components of the training must be completed.
