This is not a classroom-style set-up, Academy IDT Drawing-Office is in itself a highly respected drawing office that functions on a professional scale, carrying out architectural services, mechanical manufacturing drawings, industrial design and electrical schematics, all of which is carried out on a large and small scale for clients throughout Southern Africa.
The benefit to learning in a professional environment like this is that you get a first-hand taste of what the future holds for you and, as a junior, the nurturing team at Academy IDT will involve you in meeting with real clients, participating in real projects and working on them with the same type of deadlines you will face in the professional world.
Accepting that this course is going to be more than a nine-to-five ‘job’ (before you even graduate) will be a good place to start, the 24 hour biometric access you are given (and tons of coffee) is going to come in very handy when those deadlines have you squashed against the wall!
Academy IDT offers more than just the 2-in-1 year multidisciplinary draughting course, which means full day attendance – minus any holidays; this is definitely a course that is structured for you if you are unafraid of an extreme-study experience! It will get your blood pumping just as hard as any extreme sport would!
The part time draughting course at Academy IDT is carried out over three nights a week, which gives students who are already employed full-time the flexibility they need to add to their knowledge base and skills, however, the part time course does not include Marine Draughting or Design Presentation Modules.
Academy IDT also offers Modular Courses that have been developed to assist those wanting to focus on specific skills that are required for a specialised discipline – which is a great way of advancing a career!
