Clarity Courses

Clarity’s courses aim to equip Humanitarian Staff with skills to both prevent and respond to the most prevalent security threats. We run two distinct courses on a monthly basis for open enrollment. Organisations should think carefully which course they choose for their staff based on the role the staff member will be undertaking as well as the level of risk in the countries they are visiting/working in.
