List of NOSA Courses, Application Form and Price

World over, the need for better workplace safety has been increasing in recent times and this has seen to the development of occupational health safety courses and practices in various parts of the world. In South Africa, the National Occupational Safety Association (NOSA) is one organization championing the course for increase and improvement in workplace safety for workers. Since NOSA’a establishment, the association has undergone several changes to become one of the most reputable associations known across Africa and indeed the rest of the world for the development of health and safety courses and training. Here, you will find all there is to know about NOSA courses, how to apply, and the various fees attached to the different training and courses.

What Is NOSA All About?

NOSA, National Occupational Safety Association, was established in 1951 by the then South African government to curb the rate of workplace accidents and fatalities. In 2005, it was privatized and in 2018, it was sold to the Carlyle Group, and today, it has become the leading provider of more than 100 safety-related courses in South Africa. With up to 71 years of industry experience, NOSA courses are top-notch, offering not only occupational health, safety, and environmental training but also legislative and compliance courses. Whatsmore, NOSA has 15 colleges spread throughout South Africa, with state-of-the-art facilities and top-grade trainers.

Why Take NOSA Courses?

We can all agree without a doubt that the knowledge of occupational health and safety is not only beneficial to employers, but also of value to workers who are faced daily potential accidents in the workplace. As mandated by South African law, workplaces and workers are expected to abide by the safety rules and regulations governing their industries. To this end, a lot of institutions have come up to offer courses in occupational health and safety, with each having its own attributes. NOSA is one such institute, but unlike others, it has always been here – since 1951. Its longevity, and by extension expertise gathered over the years, speaks volumes on why it is the leading institute for occupational health, safety, and environmental training in South Africa.

Breaking it down by looking at the NOSA courses being offered at the colleges, we see that; there are more than 100 courses specified to various requirements and needs. In other words, we can say NOSA offers everything. These courses range from worldwide acclaimed courses like NEBOSH courses to short courses on specific industries like mining etc. The beauty of NOSA’s short courses is that their durations are not only short, but their prices are also extremely affordable (especially when you compare it to the benefit you would be getting from being certified in the courses). In fact, there are options where you pay per day, meaning that your learning speed can actually help you save some money. There are also options for re-certification, where the price and course duration is different for beginners and those just brushing up on their knowledge and/or skill.

Additionally, there are classroom, e-learning, and webinar options available to learners as they see fit. And guess what, NOSA’s course options have been updated to reflect the occupational health and safety challenges that come with the COVID pandemic. Finally, practical training is an essential part of NOSA courses, and such classes are restricted in the number of trainees that can participate (1-15), so as to facilitate efficient learning.
