I wanted to let you all know of a Safety & Security Course that Center for Safety & Development (CSD) http://www.centreforsafety.org/ is facilitating September 12-14 in the Washington DC area. I participated in a CSD/Harvard Humanitarian Academy training in the fall and was very impressed with CSD’s resources and facilitators.
The below link provides more information on the September course. The introductory cost for the training is $1,490 per participant (grants are available for InterAction members) and is geared for both field staff and HQ staff that train and manage field staff.
If you have any questions please let me know.
