Working In Extreme Environments - Hot
Our desert and hot weather survival training is designed to provide vital training and skills to individuals and organisations operating in hot environments.
These courses are designed to meet the needs of professionals working in extreme heat. The training is especially valuable to: electrical line crews, survey crews, oil and gas crews, construction personnel, telecommunications crews, communication techs, and others who are working in dry or humid environments where extreme heat is common.
Hot climate courses can be tailored for Desert or Tropic environments. The standard courses are 2-3 days in length. The first day is taught in the classroom with the remainder of the training in the field working on practical skills.
The training is fast paced with an emphasis placed on hands-on experience. The course length and content can be modified to accommodate any specific requirements of the participating organisation. Certifications are available for all of the training programs we offer. The following is a sample of subject areas taught during the program.
