Richard P – Started my own business

Good day Sir,

Hope you are well.

I would like to thank you for teaching me all of what I know about draughting and CAD for the year I spent at Academy IDT. I know I wasn’t one of the easiest students and would have changed a lot if I could go back and do it again, but I am grateful for the experience.

I left Academy IDT and went to work as a draughtsman. The demand for multi-skilled draughtsman is much higher than I thought and after a year or so I was then fortunate enough to purchase SolidWorks Premium CAD software and start my own company. I’ve had the privilege of being part of the design of some amazing projects for well-known company’s in Namibia.

I’ve completed the process upgrade for Cerebos salt here as well as the plant layout and design of various other equipment.

I’ve designed a bulk bagging unit for Grindrod, this is used to fill 14ton bags with copper ore,

and a whole lot more.

Without you and everyone at Academy IDT this would have not been possible, thank you once again to all of you!

Kind regards
