Personal Security Training

NCA Personal Security Training provides a practical approach to safety and security, and aims to reduce risk by enabling and motivating the participants to actively participate in their own security management.

Who:

The Personal Security Training provides basic security and personal awareness to staff travelling to or who is based in a medium to high risk context. It emphasizes practical skills, good practices, and rises awareness on general safety and security routines.

HEAT (Hostile Environment Awareness Training):

For staff travelling repeatedly or whom are based in high to severe risk contexts, we advise the personal security training to be followed up with one of the NCA and ACT Alliance HEAT trainings. The first will be conducted 3rd to 6th December 2018. For more information see HEAT trainings.

We also recommend NRC's HEAT trainings.

How:

All applications should be sent to security@nca.no. Registration deadline is 4 weeks before the training.

The security trainings are filled up on a “First come first serve” basis, however NCA employees have priority. This means that external NGOs will be offered up to three slots prior to the application deadline, approximately 3-4 weeks prior to the training. Then any remaining places are distributed among those on the waiting list.

The training will be conducted in English, but if there are groups with only Norwegian speaking participants group conversations could then be in Norwegian.

Cancellations can freely be made until the deadline. After this all external NGOs will have to pay for the training: If we are able to fill the slot you will pay 33 % of the cost, if we are are not able to fill the slot you pay 80 % of the cost.
