Our Training

The resource sector is facing increased risks from civil unrest and extreme weather events. Industry safety and security programs often fail to deliver the basic skills training that would help employees survive an extreme situation in a hostile environment before help arrives. We can help bridge that training gap with highly effective survival skills training, customized to suit your business needs and operating environment.
