What is Mission Ready?

Mission Ready is an interactive training platform designed for aid workers in the field.

It uses cutting-edge technology to enhance learning through realistic, ‘Point-of-View’ video simulations, putting aid workers in the kind of situations they are likely to face in the field.

The 'Remote Security Management' course introduces learners to a range of tools to manage security remotely at each phase of project - from design to closure.

They are then transported, through video-simulation technology, to the conflict-stricken nation of Zabadin - a fictional Middle Eastern country - to respond to a cholera outbreak with the fictional NGO Health Emergency International.

Faced with a series of dilemmas, learners must apply their newly-acquired knowledge to take tough security decisions under time pressure and in coordination with team-mates in headquarters and field offices.

It's aimed at remote security managers and staff whose security is being remotely managed.

Mission Ready has been developed by Digital Training Solutions and RedR, and is co-funded by DFID and USAID
