Draughting A Better Future!

African Academy takes a hands-on, practical approach to training our students and preparing them for real-world challenges with our wide range of draughting courses.

Broaden Your Opportunities with Accredited Draughting Courses

African Academy is one of Africa’s most reputable draughting academies and private technical colleges. It was born out of the need to fill South Africa’s dire shortage in employment and to develop well-trained and highly skilled draughtspersons.

We have been operating for close to three decades, taking a hands-on, practical approach to training our students and preparing them for real-world challenges. Our draughting courses are all-encompassing, covering civil, electrical, and mechanical fields, and homing in on niche skills such as Structural Steelwork Detailing, Architectural Technology, and Piping Draughting.

We pride ourselves in our excellent pass and placement rates, which have both remained at 80% for over two decades. It is our aim to produce high calibre graduates, which is why we are governed by a Board of Directors, an Academic Board, and an Industry Board, to ensure that high standards are met.

SUCCESS STORY

BLAYNE FERGUSON

From a young age I had always had a passion for drawing, and that passion never died. When entering the later years of high school, I was always perturbed by the question of what I was going to study once I left school. After many months of pondering I decided to follow my dream.
