Training components

Our programme has four mutually reinforcing components:

• Theoretical sessions, aimed at consolidating methods (pre-departure checklist, do's and don'ts in violent situations, etc.);

• Practical sessions, aimed at training in basic practices (first aid/trauma, radio protocols, etc.);

• Simulations, which aim to crystallize the use of the above-mentioned methods and practices in a tangible framework;

• Validation and feedback sessions (debriefings and key takeaways).

Different types of pedagogical tools and resources can be associated with these components.

Topics addressed:

• Personal security

• Preparation of the mission

• First Aid/Trauma

• Communications (GSM, satellite phone, radio)

• Threats when traveling in vehicles

• Orientation

• Personal risk assessment

• Incident reporting

• Hibernation, Evacuation, Relocation

• Sexual aggression

• Weapons in the field

• Hostage situation and kidnapping

• Dealing with aggressive behavior

• Mines, UXO, IED

• Security in premises


Active participation is attested by the Training team on the following basis:

• Active engagement through questions and comments or lessons learned from own experience

• Personal commitment, as evidenced by sharing lessons learned from own experience and/or participating candidly during simulations' debriefings.

• Answers to quiz at the end of theoretical sessions, designed to prompt self-awareness about one's progress.

The badge holder has also demonstrated progress through the simulations in all three key course objectives:

• Awareness of key issues (preparedness, specificity of contexts, personal responsibility, interpersonal aspects), as evidenced through the various exercises, simulations and debriefings, and as evaluated by OSC's Training team;

• Knowledge of key documents and principles (personal security, security strategies, security policy, security plans), as evidenced by the participant's growing reference to them during the program;

• Understanding of basic skills (orientation, dealing with aggressive behavior) as evidenced during simulations and debriefings.
