Mission Ready: Training today’s Aid Workers

Mission Ready is an e-learning platform that uses cutting edge game technology to enhance learning through real-time, ‘point-of-view’ interactive video scenarios. Through these, Mission Ready will challenge you to answer questions and make decisions, after which you receive blow-by-blow feedback to understand and learn from each decision point. The use of these interactive scenarios alongside written and other filmed content results in an immersive e-learning experience that is engaging, and responsive. 

Mission Ready Courses

Field Security Management is set in a fictional East African country. The training is aimed at mainstreaming established security protocols and behaviours into the daily life of all field-based staff in a humanitarian response or hostile environment. 

Remote Security Management is set in a fictional Middle Eastern country. The training is aimed at bridging the gap between HQ, regional and field staff communications on security challenges, decisions and practical actions throughout the project life cycle.

The course is presently available in English and Arabic.

Both courses were developed by security experts from across the humanitarian sector, including EISF, War Child, Department for International Development, Operation Mercy, Oxfam, Save the Children and RedR UK, Mission Ready will get every member of your team thinking about and applying the essential security protocols needed to keep staff members safe while on mission.
