Mandisa will be offering focused sessions on topics not usually covered in complimentary public trainings. Sessions take place at midday on selected Fridays until 30 June 2024. These mini-workshops would normally cost R1,500.00 per person but are free of charge for EBSCO Sub-Saharan Africa customers during this promotion.
