If you are an aid-worker and you are going to work in a conflict-area, this might be interesting for you.

Centre for Safety and Development organizes monthly security courses. In this way it is possible for you to join a course even if your organisation has a small number of expatriates and sends them out on an irregular basis.

The three-day course deals with the following topics; Ammunition awareness, Dealing with aggression, Communications, Vehicle procedures, Risk assessment, Health and Hostage survival. The course has a strong emphasis on practical exercises; a simulation is part of the training. The maximum number of participants is fourteen.

If you work for an NGO, which receives support from the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs, you can get a discount of 50%.

The Centre for Safety Basic Security Course is an essential introduction for all humanitarian workers. It covers security from three key view points:
1. Personal Security
2. Team Security
3. Agency Security

The training uses a combination of lectures and simulation to ensure an overall good understanding of security procedures and practical application.

What I particulaly like about their training approach is that they are able to tailor make courses to meet an agnecy's requirements too.
