The Medical Education Center is a Training Organisation of German origin. Our Courses are conducted strictly according to the legal guidelines of the Occupational Health & Safety Act, the Resuscitation Council of Southern Africa, and are fully SAQA aligned. We have achieved full accreditation by the Department of Labour.

By continuously assessing and updating our course materials we ensure training of the highest standard.

Oliver Gärtner, Founder and Owner of the Medical Education Center, has gained profound practical experience as Paramedic in Munich/Germany and as Head of the Paramedic Training Department of one of the largest German Rescue Organisations, the Malteser Hilfsdienst.

After moving to South Africa in 1995 he discovered the local training environment to lack both passion and enthusiasm, attributes he felt were imperative for successful training interventions, especially in the medical field. The approach towards Health and Safety Training was in dire need of change.

The chief aim of the Medical Education Center was, from the very beginning, to bring about that change.

Modern, innovative, enthusiastic, flexible, approachable, accountable and affordable.

The reaction was overwhelming.

Every month close to 2000 Learners from all over the Country, from various backgrounds and professions, attend our courses.

The daily feedback we receive is truly remarkable and inspirational.
