Our faculty is made up of experts ensuring that our training is evidence based, relevant for the current context of practice and considers emerging themes in each field.
All our trainers have been carefully selected, not only for their professional knowledge and expertise, but also for their ability to teach to both small groups and larger conference-style audiences. They are able to deliver educational material using a practical problem-solving approach. All training is tailored to the occupational health sector to ensure that it is relevant to the context of the learner.
