Natasha Ntuli earns MA University certification via her smartphone

South Africa:

Natasha Ntuli, a freelance technician in South Africa, already held grandMA2 certification gained on MA Lighting’s E-Learning platform, the MA University, and has now gained her second qualification from the online portal for the grandMA3.

Ntuli began working in the industry when she was a teenager, approaching the front of house engineer at a church conference which led to her meeting and working for technical solutions provider Black Coffee, followed by a placement at Gearhouse Academy. As she wanted to learn new skills, she decided to enrol in a course on the MA University online portal, and was able to access it through her smartphone. ‘When I found out that I could learn how to programme on the grandMA2 platform online, I saved up to buy the data I needed for my phone to run the course, and jumped at the opportunity as soon as I could,’ she said. ‘The grandMA2 console is recognised as an industry standard by many production and event companies and being certified to operate a grandMA2 will open up international opportunities for me, which is something that I really want to pursue.’

Olebogeng Boinamo, a lighting specialist and trainer at DWR Distribution, MA Lighting’s South African distributor, helped Ntuli gain her certificate for the grandMA2. ‘Natasha was able to cover the majority of the course by herself, and only needed a few hours of my time to practice the skills that she had learned online on an MA console at DWR’s offices in Johannesburg,’ he commented. ‘The most impressive thing about her achievement is that she has managed to get through the whole course with nothing more than her smartphone, as she does not have access to a personal computer. Her dedication and passion are exceptional, and I am very proud to have played a small role in her incredible achievements.’
