Really good and practical exercises to raise my situational awareness. Maybe, we needed better guidance on the type of clothing required for the course

A reality check. I never knew the extent of the risks and I found the course really very informative. I am better prepared now

This was really good training for hostile environments that I and my family could experience at home and overseas. Very good content that was well presented
