Formal diabetes training

Good day,

I would like to enquire as to where I will be able to study diabetes formally here in South Africa.
Please direct me as I am unable to access any information.
I am a registered nurse currently working in a hospital in Johannesburg.

Many thanks,
– Lillian Mophaleng
