Event Description

The VEPT aims to strengthen personal security in semi-permissive environments. This 2-day intensive course trains participants to understand the risks and tackle the challenges of the operational environment, thereby building staff resilience and enabling successful completion of their mission, while ensuring their safety and welfare. This course is tailored to the needs of humanitarian actors as follows:

  • Certified in the UK by the Institute of Training and Occupational Learning (ITOL).
  • The First Aid component is certified by NUCO Training Center UK.
  • Endorsed by the Centre for Education and Research on Humanitarian Action (CERAH), a joint center of the University of Geneva and The Graduate Institute, Switzerland. 
  • Tailored to the needs of humanitarian personnel already operating in the crisis area.
  • Context- specific, enriched by the instruction team's' field experiences, with simulations involving local role-players and local communities.
  • Abides by humanitarian principles and developmental aid guidelines, as it was conceived and developed by humanitarians for humanitarians.
  • Enables organizations to comply with the Minimum Operating Standards of Security (MOSS) that help prevent injury and loss of life, perform duty of care to staff, and prevent litigation and reputation damage.
  • Funds the Psychosocial Support Center for Women and Children in West Mosul, and funds the volunteer work of SEI frontline medics.
