Since 2004, INSI has provided basic safety training free of charge to over 2,000 news media personnel in 30 countries. Most were journalists and other members of the news team who otherwise would have received no professional guidance on how to survive the story.

The training consists of tailor-made packages designed to meet the needs of local and regional journalists, addressing their specific requirements.
