This includes residential Hostile Environment Awareness Training / Safety Awareness in Foreign Environments courses, as well as a range of shorter seminar options.
  • Health and Safety training for organizations working in Canada and abroad: work-at-heights, confined space safety, rope access, wellness and more.
  • Preparation for organizations and individuals who may be exposed to potentially unsafe situations domestically, including emergencies, natural disasters, lone working and work in areas with high crime.
  • Defence and protective security training including executive and close protection, and driver training for all types of terrain.
  • Leadership and team-building training, with an emphasis on developing highly transferable skills – such as situational awareness, decision-making and conflict resolution.

Our Hostile Environment Awareness Training (HEAT) programs are designed for personnel who are visiting, living in or working in areas of higher insecurity or limited infrastructure. For organizations whose staff are required to travel to other areas that may not be considered hostile, but nevertheless may be potentially more hazardous than their normal working environments or perhaps just culturally unfamiliar we would recommend our Safety Awareness in Foreign Environments (SAFE) training. Both of these programs are intended to provide knowledge and techniques to reduce the chances of our trainees becoming involved in a security or safety incident, and to mitigate the seriousness and effects of an incident if they are.

Tundra recognises that while organizations working in challenging environments want to provide the best safety that they can for their staff, they are also present there to achieve certain objectives, and so our training has also been designed to reflect the need for achieving operational goals, continuity and resilience while still effectively managing and mitigating the specific threats of their environment.
