" I had the honour and privilege to be invited for teaching assignments to the SAA courses over the last 5 years. Whilst this was only a 1-day engagement each, I was positively surprised by the interaction and the feedback from the students that I got acquainted with on this very day. Each group is diverse. However, each group and the student are challenging. The SAA format with practitioners giving their insight on various aspects is probably the most important factor for choosing the SAA for a continued education."
