After the meeting you join the group for drinks. The atmosphere is great and you are having a good time. You find yourself in an animated discussion with a director of a possible future partner organisation.
He is standing very close to you and you ask him to give you some room. The man keeps focussed on you and now puts a hand on your shoulder. This makes you feel very uncomfortable. You made yourself clear, didn’t you? What to do? How to get out of this situation?
The Safety for Female Travellers Course enables you to de-escalate and steer situations in the right direction. After this course you have the tools and confidence to deal with situations when travelling. That way you can focus on your mission.
During this course, we will practice using real situations. This enables you to learn how to control and deescalate a situation.
We are an ISO 9001:2015, Cedeo and CRKBO certified organisation to make sure you receive the best learning experience you ever had.
Safe learning environment

Why choose a Safety for Female Travellers Course?
This course is specific for female travellers
Working in complex environments, female travelers can be confronted with harassment and other threatening situations. Especially when traveling and working abroad you must be able to deal with these situations with confidence and determination. During this course, we stage situations that women often encounter abroad.
What to expect:
- This is a practical course with lots of exercises and simulations.
- Your private experiences stay private and we do not expect you to share them. During this course, we focus on preventing situations in the future.
- This is not a self-defense course. This course enables you to defuse situations before they escalate.
