Missions Interlink Advanced Security Training (MAST)

Missions Interlink security training is biblically and principles based personal security training conducted specifically for Christian cross-cultural workers to help provide them with foundational skills to be safe when travelling and serving in a cross-cultural context.

The training includes online learning and/or classroom, indoor and outdoor role-play sessions. Participants are trained in relevant topics facing believers working in a variety of contexts including open and restricted access areas.

Missions Interlink security training is currently offered in two formats:

Missions Interlink Advanced Security Training (MAST), consisting of two online sessions along with one face to face session.

This option will suit workers whose organisation requires theory and practical security training and also those anticipating serving in more challenging environments.

Introduction to Living Safely in a Cross-Cultural Context, consisting of two online sessions only.

This option may suit workers wanting to refresh their security knowledge, having previously attended a full MAST program, or for those who do not need the practical components of the third session of the MAST program.

Online training currently includes the following topics:

  • Applying a Theological Lens to Risk

  • Managing Security Risk

  • Planning Ahead

  • Preventing, Preparing for, Responding to and Recovering from an incident

  • Being Situationally Aware

  • Making Critical Decisions

  • Detecting and Avoiding Surveillance

  • Avoiding Attacks

  • Navigating Crowded Places

  • Travelling Safely

  • Handling Violent Confrontations

  • Answering Questions

Face to Face training currently includes:

  • Navigating Crowded Places

  • Responding to Violence

  • Answering Questions

  • Examining Hostage Situation

  • Using a vehicle safel

  • Responding to Vehicle Stops

Note 1: Cyber Security is no longer covered in MAST (although it may form a part of discussions) – this topic is covered in a separate specialised MI Cyber Security training program.

Note 2: While participants will be exposed to elements of stress during practical exercises, the MAST program does not include high intensity exercise exposure. High intensity exposure is aimed at stress inoculation which is only achievable with repeated training delivered over an extended period of time and/or over multiple sessions. Training that aims to provide stress inoculation is delivered by other training organisations.
