REST...

I can breathe normally again: I just passed passed a security training course of the European Council. The course was done electronically as an on-line training, so I didn’t have to leave Denmark or my home town Silkeborg to participate.

Security and safety are increasingly becoming issues in the planning and execution of work of international organisations. The main reason to this is the volume of international operations: There is more international work being carried out due to the increased commitments from some countries, such as donor countries of the EU, to aid recipient countries in building stable and secure socities. It brings people to ever more distant parts of the world, where they will be working under unusual environments with other cultures, traditions, climate, fauna and flora, as well as more extreme nature, like with earthquakes and tsunamis. International workers will have to cope with all that, sometimes as the ones solving one ore more of the above mentioned problems (floods, earthquakes) as on Haiti, but always as subject to new risks to health and security.

I have taken several such courses; two were in the real world — a general security training in Denmark 2006 and another in Italy 2008 while preparing for an elections observation mission to Pakistan. These days, I’m applying for a job in the European Union Rule of Law Mission in Kosovo (EULEX Kosovo), and taking their Hostile Environment Security Training might increase my chances. So from the end of August till 10 September, I was studying the eHEST Advanced course. It was at times a scary affair to face the worst fears one can have and learn how to deal with them, once one faces them the real world. What to do if there’s a tsunami underway, How to behave when captured by kidnappers, How to deal with an aggressive crowd, How to defend yourself if attacked by a rapist, How to deal with a college who is breaking down under stress.

Other electronic training was for international workers of the United Nations. It was a bit too international in its attempt to cover the target group. Example: In sub-Saharan Africa, it is a widespread superstition that if a man is HIV positive, he can get releaved from the infection if he goes to bed with a virgin. This superstition had to be uprooted from the minds of the UN course participants, and a couple of pages in the on-line training were dealing with this.
Albeit the narrower target group, the eHEST was probably the most lengthy on-line security training I’ve tried. It consists of six modules, each with 60-90 pages (set up in Adobe Flash files) and includes tests in each module, tests between modules, and a final one as well. If you work concentrated, with no breaks and don’t miss a test, it will take you eight hours, was the message in the introduction. I spent more than 10 days — beside the training there’s also a life to be lived.

The training was organised by the European Union External Action Service.
