Whether studying abroad, relocating, traveling for business, or simply wander-lusting the world, being educated about the nuances of your destination(s) can not only enhance your experience, but in some cases, even save your life, or those travelling with you.
The Travel Protection Program was developed by international security specialists. They know first-hand, that there are inherent risks of travelling – anywhere and everywhere. Some countries are recognized as highly dangerous as a result of any number of factors: political or religious strife, terrain, weather conditions, violent gangs / factions / militants and more. Other countries are recognized as generally being safe for travelers, but danger lurks in even the friendliest of places. For example, the uprising in Paris or the earthquakes in Japan, the fires in California or the continual tribal fighting throughout Africa.
Being properly prepared and knowing what the risks are, will empower you to make rational, split-second decisions. Your life, or the lives of those travelling with you, might depend upon it.
EMPOWERMENT is EVERYTHING
There's much to see here. So, take your time and look around. Our programs are not only educational but interesting as well. Knowledge is power! Once you understand HOW to apply situational awareness to your destination, you can start your journey without the hesitation or worry of not knowing what lies ahead.
Each Module is unique.
Each Module exposes you to a different aspect of your journey.
Once you have completed the program, you can travel knowing that you are knowledgeable not only about the culture and customs, but also possess the knowledge of where to go and what to do should any emergency arise.
