    Good evening. Chante here. I was wondering if you could help me understand.

    I am already inroled at an academy and I am almost done with the course..

    Its also a muli dissiplenary Draughting course but I seem to have a problem with 3 subjects… Mechanical, Structural and Electrical Draughting.

    I was wondering if it’s possible to move over to you guys for the only Draughting subject I’ll be using for my industry… Building Draughting or is it necessary for me to do the whole course over again in order to get a DHET certification for Building Draughting.

    Kind regards.
    Chante.

      Good day Chante.

      Thank you for your enquiry. You need to finish all the subjects in order to get the DHET certificate. Even the subjects that you have a problem with, as it is a Multi-Disciplinary Draughting course and thus the certificate is the same.

      You are able to move over to us, and do the remaining subjects with us. The cost will be R8000 per subject (it is R8000 per module). Your subjects that you already passed, will still remain, and you will not have to write those again to get your DHET certificate. Please should you come over to us, please bring your statement of results from DHET along. The application is done online.

      Please don’t hesitate to ask should you have more questions.
