Learning the Fun Way

Lymphoedema Training Academy of Africa uses strategies for learning and self-growth as the foundation for all courses and programmes.

Built in collaboration with Jane Wigg, the founder of the Lymphoedema Training Academy Global, we strive to provide the most up to date and researched information available.

At LTA:Africa we use state of the art equipment to achieve the best possible outcomes. This approach creates a unique opportunity to prepare our participants for a new adventure or for the next step in their career.

We are the only training academy in South Africa to offer hands on training in lymphatic mapping.

Look through our current course offerings below to learn more.

Our goal is to empower people through the expansion of knowledge. These short courses/presentations/workshops are a great way to begin or continue that journey. We keep abreast of and participate in the latest research and endeavour to bring it to you at regular intervals and at affordable pricing. Keep an eye on our upcoming events for more details.

Integrity, ethics and having fun while learning, are the cornerstones of LTA Africa.

Be a part of our program of giving back to Africa.

We are now offering the Full Lymphoedema Rehabilitation Programme to all of our international and local students.
