Full description

In an ever-changing world, the risks faced by international travellers are constantly evolving too. Duty of care is no longer an ethical concern, but a legal obligation.

The risks of working in regions of conflict or natural disaster and the threats of targeted crime and terrorism are increasingly unpredictable. While most trips are usually incident free, it’s still important to put the necessary measures in place to protect your staff, assets and reputation.

With over 30 years’ experience of Risk Management to draw on, we have devised an online and interactive Travel Awareness Awareness course for travellers. It focuses on practical information to give travellers the knowledge to recognise potential risks, guidance on how to reduce those risks and advice on what to do should an incident occur.

The course is designed to be viewed across multiple devices and is divided into a series of modules so users can learn where and whenever they want. Its style is engaging and interactive with informative videos and case studies that aid learning.

Short quizzes in each module allow learners to measure their progress and confirm their understanding, and a final multiple-choice assessment tests their knowledge. Reporting on candidate progress and final attainment can provide organisations with an audit trail for compliance purposes.
