// THRE+AT ™ : Travel, Hostile & Remote Environments Awareness Training.
The R2Ri team have significant experience (both within UK and NATO militaries, Police and also in a civilian capacity) of training and briefing individuals and organisations to operate in permissive and non permissive environments around the globe. Instructors include those holding Security and Risk Management qualifications and qualified Duty of Care Practitioners. The team includes members with very recent hostile environment experience in Afghanistan. Our team includes a former CNN Senior Field Security Advisor and Medical Training Manager (Europe, Middle East and Africa) with on the ground and high level responsibility for journalist safety in hostile environments.
We also have very well known and highly regarded Kidnap Awareness and Survival instructors on the team who have delivered training, as subject matter experts for UK and NATO militaries operating around the world - and have shaped and formed the NATO Kidnap and Conduct after Capture training and protocols.
Please see our environment specific pages for Jungle, Desert/Bush, Mountain and Arctic environment training.
Through our extensive network we can also usually provide the opportunity for discussion with those who have very recent on the ground experience in the location you are travelling to. Clients will be supported with up to date country briefings and we have specialist analysts in house if more detailed, bespoke reports are needed.
These courses are suitable for those working and travelling overseas in a business, NGO, media, exploration and Government agency capacity.
Given that individuals and organisations travel in a wide variety of theatres, we believe that the traditional HEAT (Hostile Environment Awareness Training) isn't wide enough in scope and that training offerings should also include travel and remote areas. Why train for the hostile environments but leave clients vulnerable within a travel context?
We do not believe in overly dramatic, humiliating and unnecessary scenarios that may be of limited educational benefit. Any exercises we undertake are realistic, designed for maximum educational benefit and follow suitable screening of course attendees. Our training is realistic and based on real world experience. Our instructors backgrounds stand up to the most rigorous scrutiny.
