At the academy we ensure that students are not just prepared in our classrooms but that they are also prepared in practice. We refer to this process as Work Integrated Learning (WIL).

Students will participate in an optional program where they will be hosted in an external workshop. During this time they will design various components and carry this design all the way through the manufacturing process. Extra cost applies to Part-Time and Online students only.
The safety module will introduce the learner to the basics of workshop safety. This is an important and compulsory module for all student and a prerequisite for all the other modules. Workshop environments contain numerous tools and machinery that are potentially harmful and deadly if used incorrectly and it is imperative that learners follow the processes and procedures as set out by the instructors.
During the Land surveying workshop, the learner will be introduced to the principles of building layout and site surveying. At the end of this module the learner will have the skills to set out foundations, use surveying tools and processes as well as apply basic triangulation and levelling techniques employed in surveying.
The purpose of the plumbing module is to provide learners with underpinning knowledge and practical skills to work in the field of plumbing within the construction industry. This workshop will introduce learners to the basics of designing, setting out and creating of water waste systems in domestic construction. The learner will learn how to design the most efficient layout, how to select the appropriate materials and fittings and how to properly set out the design. By the end of this module the learner will have a basic understanding of the calculations required for designing a layout, choosing the correct materials and setting out your design.
The electrical installation modules will introduce the learners to the basics of domestic single phase electrical installations. During this workshop, the learners will learn how to design the most efficient layout, understand the calculations required for the layout, select the appropriate materials and fittings and how to properly set out the design. Further to this, the learner will also have experienced the physical laying of circuits for lighting as well as power outlet points on internal as well as external walls.
