ATA in Namibia

ATA’s Fabian Martens used last year’s Erongo Business and Tourism Expo to announce the official launch of the company’s training programme to members of the public. Prior to the launch, ATA specialised training was available only to the Namibian Defence force.

Occupational health and safety training specialist, ATA International Training, Namibia officially launched its new range of training courses available to the general public at the 2012 Erongo Business and Tourism Expo, in November last year.
ATA International Training senior medical instructor and advisor Fabian Martens highlights the fact that public training courses that were launched at the fair include; first aid, health and safety training, specialised medical training, emergency care practitioner (ECP) training and fire fighter training.
“ATA International has developed a strong working relationship with the Namibian Defence Force (NDF) by supplying these courses to the military. Due to the overwhelming success of this partnership, ATA International Training Namibia recognised a definitive need for this type of training for public businesses and private citizens too,” he explains.
Martens noted that most courses are held onsite at the Goethe Institute in Windhoek, while in-house training is also available, should the need arise. “The Erongo region is an industrial hub and, as health and safety continues to play an increasingly important role in industrial applications, I am confident that ATA International Training Namibia can add considerable value to local operations.”
According to Martens, ATA International Training identified the expo as the ideal platform to present the company’s new offerings to a wide variety of industries. “The response from the industry and the public has been overwhelming, and we are excited about the future prospects for ATA International Training in Namibia. With this in mind, ATA International Training Namibia plans to exhibit again next year at various additional expos in Windhoek, Ongwediva and Walvis Bay,” he said.
ATA International specialises in facilitating emergency medicine courses, as well as occupational medicine, occupational hygiene, technical rescue, industrial fire-fighting and health and safety training courses for professionals operating in remote and isolated environments such as the oil and gas, mining, infrastructure and construction industries. ATA International works in collaboration with various leading universities and institutions in order to provide high quality medical training to these sectors.
