...I don't live where OML runs courses
Last Updated: 31/Jul/2020
OML is a not-for-profit training charity. In order to run courses outside where our Course Facilitators live, OML needs a guaranteed number of students so that we do not run at a loss. The course fees need to cover the standard course costs as well as travel, accommodation and meals for our Course Facilitators .
Where we run Courses
So where do we routinely run courses? Currently, in Sydney, in Melbourne (kinda), in Adelaide, in Auckland, and in Christchurch.
Periodically, under special circumstances, we take the opportunity to run courses outside these areas. Consider the following examples.
- One of our Course Facilitators may be travelling to Albury-Wodonga to attend a Conference. In that case, provided OML can garner enough student interest, we would schedule a course while they were there.
- One of our Course Facilitators may be planning a holiday in Perth. In that case, if the Course Facilitator is interested and OML can garner enough student interest in Perth, we may schedule a course while they are there.
- In 2017, a clinic in Sri Lanka engaged OML to run our OM1 & OM2 courses in house and they covered all costs. OML is currently discussing similar projects in a number of overseas locations - Honk Kong.
In the past, just to give you an idea of how flexible we can be, OML has successfully run courses in Christchurch, Hamilton (NZ), Canberra, Devonport, Brisbane, Wagga Wagga, Traralgon, Mildura, Gawler, Cairns, Townsville, Mackay, and Bunbury.
Where you want Courses
In circumstances where you do not live close to where we routinely run courses, you have a few options which we have outlined below.
You could try to bring an OML course to your community. Provided you can garner enough student interest in your community, we may be able to make this happen. OML will provide some marketing support including advice, brochures and contacts. This has happened quite a few times in the past.
You could travel to where OML is routinely running courses. Although we have run courses in Launceston and Hobart in the past, we have Tasmanian students who have travelled to Melbourne and Adelaide to successfully complete their training. Although we have run courses in Darwin and Alice Springs in the past, we have NT students who have travelled to Sydney and Perth to successfully complete their training. And although we regularly run courses in Auckland, sometimes the timing is not right, so we have New Zealand students who have travelled to the Sunshine Coast, Sydney or Melbourne to successfully complete their training.
Or finally, you could have a holiday where OML is routinely running courses and undertake training while you are there. This is also quite common.
