Whether through their security or development backgrounds, and sometimes both, OSC’s team has substantive experience working in degraded security environments. The vast majority of our trainers have endured and have had to manage security incidents. This has infused our approach to security and is at the heart of all of our trainings.
We believe that:
► Each incident is unique. There is no one-size-fits-all approach to security, only good practice.
► Insecurities are best approached through preparedness.
► Preparing against threats works best when knowing yourself.
► Trainings should empower people.
« OTHER SOLUTIONS were invaluable in helping us to expand our work in West Africa. Their extensive knowledge and experience on the ground helped us to move forward swiftly and effectively. » Michelle Mboulé Njaka

« The security training was a success. OTHER SOLUTIONS has a great team of trainers; their experience and knowledge in security matters are remarkable. It was a fulfilling experience for me and the team at HD. Thanks to OSC for all their help in coordinating the training! » Mary

« The PFST by OTHER SOLUTIONS Consulting I participated in near Paris was very well run by a small team of trainers. The training exceeded my expectations and I was positively surprised how the OTHER SOLUTIONS crew managed to get everyone fully engaged in the relatively short period of only three days. Stress levels ran high in the simulations which I found very useful and well delivered. The bonus was that we also had a very competently delivered First Aid Training completed at the same time. I will certainly recommend this PFST to others in my network. » Curt
