LONDON, May 19, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Drum Cussac, the international business risk consultancy, today announced the launch of TravelSafe - its highly interactive and visually powerful travel security awareness training course for international travellers.
The multimedia programme has received strong praise from early users. It includes more than 40 different aspects of global travel safety and features experienced travellers and security professionals reliving past experiences, sharing key safety strategies and providing personal security tips. Additionally, companies can insert their own information such as company travel policies.
TravelSafe is designed for mobility and flexibility, making it available to international travellers online through their computers, laptops or smartphones. Created in consultation with Bournemouth University, a centre of excellence in media practice, TravelSafe incorporates the latest training techniques and technologies, creating an education platform optimised for adult learning and information retention. It can be tailored to match any traveller's profile, from novice to seasoned world traveller.
Jeremy Stampa Orwin, Founder and Managing Director at Drum Cussac, said: "The civil unrest around the globe today only heightens the risks that await an unwary or complacent traveller. TravelSafe provides business travellers with valuable skills, enabling them to effectively manage risks before, during and after travel. It's a win-win situation. Organisations are able to meet their duty of care obligation while employees receive invaluable skills that transcend the workplace."
