Provision of First Aid Training Services

INSO is a non-profit humanitarian organisation providing dedicated safety support services to the NGO community in conflict and violence-affected areas.

Our vision is a strong, safe and empowered humanitarian community able to deliver aid to vulnerable individuals in the world’s most challenging contexts with the minimum of risk to their staff, partners and beneficiaries.

Our mission is to work on the ground alongside NGOs to provide them with comprehensive, high quality, real time and relevant information, analysis, alerts and advice on the local safety conditions, along with practical support, training and assistance that improves their situational awareness and supports informed decision making and crisis response.

INSO Somalia is making provisional plans to hold “Hostile Environment First Aid Training” (HEFAT) during April and May 2017, with dates to be finalised.
The objective of training courses is ‘To better prepare NGO staff for working and living in insecure and remote environments through the provision of basic skills and techniques tailored to the extreme nature and level of threat NGOs are exposed to operating in Somalia.
The HEFAT course will also equip NGO staff with the knowledge and skills to operate safely as a first responder to medical situations in a hostile environment
In this regard, INSO Somalia is looking for an interested FEMALE instructor to assist our training officer, himself a well-qualified and experience paramedic and trainer, in running the course(s). Dependent on numbers and demand the courses may be held in Mogadishu or Garowe or Hargeisa.
