OHTA, an organisation predominantly comprised of volunteers, relies on the commitment and support of many hardworking people.

We wish to thank all the volunteers who provide their valuable time and expertise to work on projects and to lead the organisation.

Editorial Review and Development

There are many volunteers supporting English language module review and development projects. Led by Chief Editor Sven Hoffmann, each project requires a team of people to conduct the review, and in many cases, training providers have also taken the time to provide written feedback. We are enormously grateful to everyone who is working on these projects, and to those who have volunteered previously to work on projects.
