2021 Training Schedule - Oceania Seating Symposium

NEW DATES ANNOUNCED** 5TH – 7TH April 2022

IN RESPONSE TO ON-GOING TRAVEL RESTRICTIONS, OSS 2021 WILL BE A HYBRID EVENT.

Seating To Go is proud to be hosting the 3rd Oceania Seating Symposium, which is returning to Aotearoa in 2021. The event is geared towards professionals, manufacturers, suppliers and users of wheeled mobility, seating and postural management, and associated technologies.

CREDENTIALING WORKSHOPS:

The Level 1 and Level 2 workshops form part of the competency requirements for the Wheeled Mobility and Postural Management credentials for EMS assessors. The Ministry of Health (MOH) subsidised credentialing workshops are available for EMS assessors working within MOH or Ministry of Education funded organisations. To attend the MOH subsidised workshops you need to be employed, or sub-contracted to, a service with a MOH DSS contract for at least 75% of your working hours, or be employed or subcontracted to the Ministry of Education.

We are funded by the MOH to provide 28 training days per year. Additional non-subsidised refresher workshops can also be requested - these are open to anyone.

There are cost benefits to hosting workshops. If you are a MOH funded service, consider hosting a Level 1 or Level 2 workshop. Complete a Request to Host a Workshop form so we can respond accordingly. Any general queries regarding workshops can be directed to training@seatingtogo.co.nz

Non MOH assessors and suppliers may attend workshops indicated *. Scheduling is based on capacity and demand.
