HostileWorld is a central resource for learning materials related to security and other areas of risk. The aim is to provide anyone who works or manages personnel in challenging environments and difficult situations access to a variety of interactive courses to help them stay safe.
Our immersive scenarios are designed to test learners in realistic situations so that if the worst happens, learners will be able to response appropriately. HostileWorld gives learners feedback specifically related to their performance in the interactive simulations, so that learners know how to do better next time.
Bringing such immersive training online makes realistic, role-play and experiential learning more flexible and affordable.
HostileWorld’s flagship course: Hostile Environment Awareness Training, or HEAT, has been developed to support a variety of sectors that deploy personnel, or work with local agents, in hostile or insecure environments. The course introduces learners to strategies for staying safe while on mission.
HEAT has traditionally been provided for international journalists, oil and gas contractors, government employees or NGO/Humanitarian aid workers. In today’s unstable climate, it has become increasingly important that employers provide similar training to their local agents working on the ground. Providing such training to local staff can be prohibitively expensive and impractical, especially when access to external trainers is difficult or impossible.
HostileWorld makes this training more accessible by taking this learning and the role-play scenarios online.
We work directly with strategic partners and international experts around given courses and topics to provide world-class, cutting edge elearning in a variety of languages. Courses include:
"The platform allows our personnel to refresh themselves whenever they feel that they have a personal requirement to do so... It really is about ease and accessibility, and that's a real advantage to us as a team."
