IV Seminars, Conferences, Conventions, Exhibitions
The Core Training Courses are those funded by Olympic Solidarity and OCM has been organizing these courses for more than 20 years. These courses are practical or applied courses conducted by trained and experienced experts, appointed by Olympic Solidarity and the International Sports Federations. These courses are most beneficial to the staff and coaches (volunteers and paid), of the National Sports Associations and OCM.
As for the elective and seasonable training courses will be organized based on needs and demands. These courses will have a lower priority as the availability of funds, unlike the Core Training Courses, are not assured. The same principle applies for the organization of seminars, conferences, conventions and exhibitions.
OCM is aware that Malaysian universities and colleges, the National Sports Council, the Institute of Sports, and there are many other sports bodies, are also organizing and conducting sports management, sports science, coaching course. However, the scopes and objectives of these courses are quite different from those courses conducted by the universities and other organizations. The main difference being the courses to be organized by the NOA are practical courses to train officers and staff of NSAs, to improve their work performance in their respective organizations.
