Advanced Course instead of the Basic Course

Theory and practical learning are combined with situation updates that will require action from your team.

During the course the trainers will equip you with the knowledge, tips & tricks and skills to deal with these situations. Regular personal feedback is given to enhance your personal learning. After completion of the course you will be able to handle extreme situations with self-confidence.

A safe learning environment is maintained at all times during the course. There are more than 20 different trainers and actors involved in this course, including a mentor to monitor your personal wellbeing.
