If you are going abroad, especially if you are travelling to a part of the world that you know could pose some challenges, you might be considering a travel safety course. This is a great way to prepare yourself for travel, but you need to take the right course and make sure it has all the correct elements.
If you are travelling to a challenging zone for work, make sure your course covers the right approaches to dealing with these challenges. This might include:
- Education on the area and local customs, as well as specific insight into what makes this part of the world challenging, or even unsafe
- Tips on maintaining safety on a day to day basis and practical advice that you should follow
- Self defence skills in case you find yourself in a hostile environment or dangerous situation
- Practical education on what to look out for that could indicate a problem arising
