Procare Health Training Academy’s short courses are open to healthcare professionals and facilities who wish to upskill and promote their own employment opportunities within the healthcare sector.

The quality of our care is determined by the quality of our staff

Procare Health Training Academy was instituted in an answer to address skill shortages among newly appointed nursing staff in the healthcare environment. Our development programme is professional, continuous, and extensive, and proven successful in developing the competency and experience to deliver confident, capable healthcare staff to our clients in the healthcare sector.

We facilitate lifelong learning, enhancing patient care and its outcomes; thereby adding true value to our clients, healthcare users and the employees who render the health care services.

Upskill with Procare Health Training Academy

Our small but dynamic team of specialists are passionate about training and upskilling healthcare staff, so we offer nurses and other healthcare staff lifelong learning opportunities through accredited and non-accredited courses at the Procare Health Training Academy. In so doing, we enhance the quality of care rendered to the patient and, because we are constantly upskilling our own staff, we also offer added value to our clients.
