Other safety training opportunities for freelancers

Through its membership
 in the ACOS Alliance the Forum is now able to bring more safety training options to the attention of freelance journalists, in addition to our own bursary programs. ACOS (A Culture of Safety) is an unprecedented international coalition of news organizations, freelance journalist associations and press freedom organizations. In August 2017 it launched its Standard Safety Training Form in conjunction with a 3-day hostile environment training course offered to freelancers by the James W. Foley Legacy FoundationThe database created by these and future applications will be available to all ACOS member organizations which offer free or financially-assisted safety training opportunities for freelancers. Those who complete the form may be offered other safety training opportunities run by ACOS members as they arise. More information is on the form header and the ACOS website.
