You’ve Enrolled for the Academy IDT Draughting Course – What Now?
You’ve sent back your signed contract – we know you’re excited to start. Here are a few things you can do to prepare for the start of class in April.
Get your Laptop
If you don’t have a laptop then it’s time to go shopping! See the Qualifications Page for the required specifications. If you already have a laptop – please make sure it meets the specs. You may need to upgrade a few components.
Buy some cool Ties! (Full Time Students)
Full-Time students have a strict dress-code. We find that people who dress professionally usually behave professionally. If your wardrobe consists mainly of outfits for surfing, gaming or clubbing – perhaps spend a bit of time trying out a new look and get a few dress shirts and ties.
Ladies – we won’t insult your fashionista by telling you how to dress for the office.
Pay your Deposit
If you haven’t already received an invoice, please email firstname.lastname@example.org – your seat is not a sure thing until you’ve paid your initial fee (the registration and deposit amount – or the full up-front payment).
Make a neat folder with these DOCUMENTS
You probably enrolled using our online form and/or email. We’ll need all the original certified documents on the first day of class. Why not make a neat folder with all the documents ready to bring in with you. Here’s the check-list:
- Original Signed Enrolment Contract
- Proof of Payment (Registration and Initial Payment)
- Certified Copy of your ID Document
- Certified Copy of your Senior-School-Certificate or equivalent
- Certified Copy of your Passport (International Students only)
- Certified Copy of your Study/Work/Asylum Visa or Permit (International Students only)
- Certified Copy of your SAQA verified Senior-School-Certificate (International Students only)
Figure out who you are in a Team
Being aware of your personality traits – strengths and weaknesses – will make you a better team-player. Employers are looking for draughtspersons have great work-ethic, who that take ownership of deliverables and deadlines. There’s no time like the present for a bit of constructive introspection.
