UK-Med Blended Hazardous Environment Awareness Training (HEAT) – December

UK-Med will be running our Hazardous Environment Awareness Training (HEAT) course  in  December 2021.

Training structure

Participants will need to complete modules 1 – 5 for reflection and discussion in the first live session, modules 6 – 10 for reflection and discussion in the second live session and modules 11- 15 for reflection and discussion in the third live session.

The sessions are led by a safety and security expert from our HEAT training provider Safer Edge.

Time commitment

Participants will need to commit to attending all three of the live sessions on the following dates:

  • 1st8th and 15th December 08.30-09.30 UK time  

In addition, participants will need to commit to completing 5-7 hours of self-directed online study per week, to complete all the modules in time for each of the live one-hour session with the trainer.
