Courses and Training

SAIOH only provides a list of training providers and courses which may enhance knowledge and understanding of Occupational Hygiene as a service to members and prospective members. Listing them does not imply any recommendation or referral. SAIOH does not accredit any courses at this time. It should also be noted that SAQA does not register or approve short courses. 
Please Note: Training providers are asked to refrain from using any terminology which may mislead candidates into believing that courses or modules equate to a formal qualification accredited by SAIOH, and also to remove our logo from any marketing material, certificates or documentation provided.
