Media Hostile Training

Course details

Unlike commercial clients who can be removed from high risk situations; our UK media clients must challenge the risks in order to report the story to the rest of the world. After many years supporting the media ISTQ understands the Media’s aims and objectives. The ISTQ Media Hostile Awareness course was established to provide our media clients with specific risk management solutions that may take place. We employ former Special Forces with a vast experience in working and living in hostile environments who understand media operations and their needs.  

ISTQ International has provided security services and training for media clients covering conflicts in countries such as Iraq, Syria, Afghanistan, Pakistan, India, Egypt, Libya and the Africa regions. ISTQ can provide bespoke HEAT training packages for its clients

Our Services Company Scorpion International can provide operational support in the relevant nations, with an emphasis on risk assessment, reconnaissance, emergency and evacuation planning and the construction of expedition management plans that may be required.

We have supported our media clients in high-intensity conflicts and developed effective ways of operating in difficult and dangerous situations and providing a service to enable them to be able to work safely and provide their services to their respective organisations.

The reassurance of the safety and security of personnel is the most important duty of care of media organisations sending their staff to hostile or precarious areas. Furthermore, appropriate security measures will decrease known dangers to an operationally acceptable level, enabling project objectives to be stretched and reached.

The ISTQ International Media Hostile environment awareness training is central for anyone working in risk associated, insecure or hostile surroundings. ISTQ training endeavors to provide wide-ranging exposure of the relevant issues in this area and is designed to put applicants in demanding and stressful situations, preparing them for worst case scenarios.

Our classroom theory is complemented by simulations of real-life situations making the end user fit for purpose in hostile areas and providing a new skills set.
