OCN London - Orientation & Mobility: Theory and Practice
Duration: Sept 2019 - Aug 2020
This customised training course is academically accredited and designed to meet the needs of the organisation. It not only develops orientation & mobility instructors but due to its flexibility, allows 'support staff' to gain a qualification in line with their workplace role and function. Each individual unit is accredited in its own right which enables NCBI to build a knowledge base within their organisation that meets the need of the service and one that can be further developed as staff look to take on increased responsibility.
Orientation & Mobility: Theory and Practice
Duration: Oct 2016 - Oct 2018

As well as providing the necessary education for SAVH staff to be able to deliver training to their clients the country now has a clear path for development of this vital service.
