The COVID-19 E-Training was my first time doing E-Training. I was (excited) nervous, but with the support I got from you guys, I enjoyed it very much. Working self-paced suited me very well and also made me less nervous. It was not difficult to follow, but the hard copy helped a lot being my first time doing E-Training (and I am sure it will go much better the second time around). I gained a lot of knowledge which I applied in my job as a COVID-19 Officer on a farm. I also understand COVID-19 much better know.
Thanks again for your help and support. It really put me at ease and more comfortable doing the assessments and to submit.

To the teacher, Lindsay, you have what it takes to accommodate everyone's academic understanding. To Brannon, thanks young man for your untiring support, keen and available attitude. To Petro and Wilna, your communication and follow up is all appreciated. Thank you team EFHA.

Good morning Karin, Thank you so much I got my results. I would really like to thank you for all your hard work, dedication to your work and your patience you have for all of us (students). And your detailed strict marking..which with no doubt will make us competent. Thank you.
Hi Karin. I should really thank you and Lindie for such a great job, caring and patience you name it. Please keep up with your excellent work, many people wanting to do the course because of the need in South Africa. I know where to refer them. You have motivated me to do the Occupational Health.
Lindsay Zurba has conducted effective, energising and motivating training across Africa for two decades. As a direct result of this training, I have seen multiple authors publish the first spirometric data from their counties and motivate the prevention and treatment of chronic lung disease in those regions.
Lindsay has successfully delivered seven short courses in foundational spirometry competence, and as many workshops in spirometry quality assurance as part of our MRC funded ‘Lung health in Africa across the Lifecourse’ programme supported by IMPALA. The course and accompanying workshop are designed to upskill African researchers and establish clear spirometry quality assurance processes and guidelines within their institutions. All of Lindsay’s training has been well received by participants and her boundless energy and expertise are an asset to the programme.
It has been a great pleasure working with Lindsay for the past 3 years, in Malawi. I would highly recommend her and her team for the high quality of their spirometry teaching, the commitment they show to their work and students, and the sense of fun they bring to their training sessions.
I have known Lindsay Zurba for over 7 years, and in that time I have been thoroughly impressed with her passion, organisation, determination and execution of delivering world class spirometry training courses in several countries across Africa. Her work with the European Respiratory Society Spirometry Group has contributed much to set an international standard in spirometry training so that people across the globe with undiagnosed lung disease can be accurately identified, and started on appropriate treatment. Not only does Lindsay have peerless expertise in teaching and performing quality assured diagnostic spirometry, she has an unrivalled network of spirometry trainers, experts and practitioners across much of Africa to deliver the training.
Lindsay Zurba is a dedicated master trainer of spirometry of international repute. She brings her uncommon and astute expertise to unravel the seemingly difficult conduct and interpretation of spirometry and its readings. Friends of the University College Hospital trainees are asking for more! Above all, she is kind and loving, two characteristics that engender trust and confidence in her trainees.
Lindsay’s commitment to improving lung health in Africa by supporting the development of skilled spirometry technicians and increasing the availability of spirometry equipment is second to none. I am privileged to have become great friends with Lindsay over the spirometer in Africa. I am one of many people working in the field of lung health and tuberculosis in Africa who hold Lindsay in high esteem and rate the work she and her colleagues do extremely highly.
