An Academy of Excellence for 22 years
“Momentum Occupational Care South Africa (OCSA) has become well-known for quality and high standards, well respected for expert knowledge and well-loved because of its team’s commitment and integrity across the country,” says Lindsay Zurba, Momentum OCSA marketing manager.
The Academy of Excellence (AoE) is Momentum OCSA’s training division, which offers educational solutions in workplace health, wellness and safety. It is designed to reach and empower health professionals in South Africa, and on the African continent, through distance and e-learning.
“With over two decades of experience in education, and a highly qualified multi-disciplinary team of professionals to call upon, we are known for our capability to customise any learning experience. Our ultimate goal is to deliver a solution to our unique set of African health and safety challenges by using customised education and training products in occupational and primary wellness, as well as occupational health and safety,” Zurba says.
Pre-scheduled training is offered at OCSA branches located in Alberton, Rivonia (Johannesburg), Cape Town, Durban, Port Elizabeth and Mpumalanga. In addition, training is facilitated for groups across the African continent in any location.
Zurba explains that the flagship course is the SANC-approved Diploma in Occupational Health Nursing Science. Momentum OCSA is also adding to its portfolio, especially in the area of long-distance courses and e-learning in primary healthcare, chronic disease management and wellness at various NQF levels right up to diploma level.
“We also offer a variety of pre-scheduled stand-alone short courses and workshops, all of which are mapped against the most recent unit standards and guideline documents,” she adds.
“Company bundles”, where our clients can choose a number of tailored training sessions for the year based on the specific needs of their organisations and healthcare professionals, are also offered. These can be pre-scheduled at one of the Momentum OCSA branches or done on site at the client’s premises.
“At the AoE we go the extra mile to support international learners; such as with our all-inclusive International Learners Training Package, which enables each learner to experience peace of mind on a personal level and covers all ancillary arrangements. We believe this formula creates the best chance of success in the academic arena for learners in possibly unfamiliar territory away from home,” Zurba comments.
“We are actively engaged in promoting and conducting several workshops and short courses at any one time, across diverse disciplines that each require individual thought and attention. Fortunately, we are bold enough to say that this is an area we are particularly geared to provide and well able to supply. We have certainly worked hard for over 22 years to earn our reputation as a trusted market leader,” Zurba concludes.
