As the world moves forward into a global competitive market, designs and developments within the architectural, mechanical, and structural industries are always changing.

Architects, engineers and manufacturers are constantly looking for the latest technology to simplify costs and speed up their processes but more importantly, companies are searching for individuals who can operate these technologies fluently and effectively.

Draughtsmen and detailers are involved in the design and planning stage of any specific industry, whether it be in the mechanical, architectural or structural industries. The draughtsman will design, detail and sometimes oversee construction or manufacturing process.

Draughtsmen design and prepare technical drawing sets for the use of the construction or manufacturing process, using advanced software to bring the project to life. The draughtsman is also involved in the 3D presentation stage of the conceptual design.

Their drawings provide visual presentations for the technical and design aspect of the product by illustrating dimensions, materials and the processes and procedures involved in the project.

Included in the fees:

  • Access to books on Safari
  • International exams listed (does not include rewrites)
  • A device and a minimum of 1GB data is required to access training material.

    Should you prefer to use or purchase your own PC for studies, refer to Bring Your Own Device (BYOD).
