Hostile Environment Training

I’m shopping around for a security company to do a Hostile Environment course. A simple Google search turned up AKE, Centurion, Controlled Risks and Perseus and etc. They all seem to be offering similar courses. Any suggestions? Also price is an important consideration for me. What one should expect to pay for such a course?
Thank you and best wishes from Canada.
