Pilgrims Group is launching a new short course, entitled TravelSafe™, aimed at business travellers going to sophisticated environments in more developed countries. The entry-level course for staff who are travelling on overseas business lasts approximately 45 minutes and is broken down into four modules covering subjects such as preparation (including situational awareness, lowering your profile, personal safety), environment (taxis, airports, hotels and restaurants) and emergency response (what to do if something goes wrong).

Pilgrims COO, David Freear, commented: “This is the first time we’ve produced something like this, a very short course, extremely focused and completely up to date with current threats in mind. It was designed in response to clients’ requests and is all about getting the individual to take more responsibility and start thinking, giving them the knowledge they need and helping them to feel more confident. It’s a very cost-effective way of delivering training and contributes strongly to duty of care requirements imposed by external regulation and internal policy.

Because it’s available online, the course can be done at any time and additional information is available to back-up the learning. There is a short exam to complete at the end. For more information on running the course for your staff, contact
