Request For Headway International Academy in Tashkent


International Security Training for NGOs, INGOs, UN and other organizations in Tashkent

Headway International Academy provides companies, bilateral and multilateral organizations, government institutions, the United Nations, and NGOs /I with professional, high standards, and effective research, evaluation, monitoring, and capacity development (Training and Coaching). We are specialized in leadership, management, risk management, and security training and consulting services. Because of recent security development in Afghanistan, Headway International Academy has planned this important security training for NGOs, INGOs, UN and other organizations in Tashkent in a cost-effective manner comparing to other centers globally. (

Humanitarian workers are increasingly exposed to challenging, insecure, remote, or hostile environments due to lawlessness, political instability, and armed conflict, so there is a compelling need for them to be adequately prepared for any dangers they may encounter.

Sexual harassment, interactions with aggressive armed combatants, daylight robbery, and traffic accidents are realistic threats for humanitarians and aid workers. All field workers should be adequately prepared for these events and be proficient in establishing and maintaining telecommunications, whether working in a safe or hostile situation. Conscious of the varying needs within the sector, Headway seeks to address the concerns of a range of organizations and individuals and their insurance providers. These include relief, development, research and advocacy organizations, operational agencies, and agencies that are not directly operational but provide support to community-based organizations and locally-based NGOs.

Headway course includes integrated Tactical Emergency Casualty Care (TECC) training by Real Response. Real Response will deliver a combination of theory and practical-based emergency medical training, giving participants the skills and knowledge to manage ballistic, penetrating, and blast trauma. A few of the skills learned in TECC include commercial and improvised tourniquets and hemorrhage control, airway management of an unconscious casualty, and an array of improvised techniques teaching students how to save and preserve life with limited resources. Participants will leave the course with the skills and knowledge to provide aid and operate in hostile environments around the world.

Participants will receive an International Certificate.
