HEAT course (expression of interest for 2022 dates)

UK-Med are pleased to announce dates for the Hazardous Environment Awareness Training (HEAT) for 2022.

Upon completing the course, participants will be able to respond in conflict zones and other particularly hazardous environments.

Training structure

In total, the training consists of 15 online modules and three one-hour live zoom sessions, over the course of three weeks.

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.

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.  

Please note that whilst it is worth considering taking study leave due to the time commitment required, UK-Med is not able to cover any associated costs. The HEAT course is CPD accredited.  


Please note that the number of places available on this training is limited and places will be allocated on a first come first serve basis and only to those who have already completed the UK-Med Induction Pathway and the UK-Med Safeguarding Pathway.
