Event description


Travel Safety Training for Reassurance and Peace of Mind

As the summer holidays approach and students look to make the most of their time away from studies they may embark upon solo travelling adventures or simply a couple of weeks in the sun with friends. Either way, being aware of your surroundings and potential dangers has never been more important. Recent events have proven that risks can present themselves at any time. Hotels, nightclubs & bars, beaches or simply travelling between destinations are all vulnerable to accidents, hostile acts or crime.

About the Course

Callida Freemont Ltd - a company specialising in Risk Management and Hostile Environment Awareness Training is running a number of full day courses designed to prepare young adults for the risks they face when travelling or working overseas. These courses have been created by ex-military leaders Rob Ferry and Darren Kelly who together have more than 20 years military experience.

What the Course Covers

The aim of these courses is not to take the fun and adventure out of travel, but to make the experience safe and give those left behind the piece of mind that loved ones are well equipped to make considered decisions.These Travel Safety courses cover a range of key subjects and are delivered through a mixture of industry best practice and personal experience.

We use a blend of practical, desktop and discussion exercises to prepare for:

• The threats facing travellers overseas

• Pre-travel research

• Cultural awareness and sensitivities

• Accommodation

• Use of vehicles

• Health Essentials

• Useful kit and equipment

• Conflict management and dealing with challenging situations

• Natural Disasters

The optional First Aid course in addition to the above will cover:


• AED (Automated External Defibrillator)
