Logistics and Supply Chain

Applied Security

About the Course

This self-paced course by OCBA will introduce you to how field logisticians can apply security, as well as understand and actively participate in the Risk Analysis, in order to develop adequate mitigation measures in areas like Communication, Movements, Site Protection and Workplace Safety. It is aimed at all logistic profiles in supervisor or activity management positions with MSF work experience of at least six months.
