National Certificate: Multi-Disciplinary Draughting (MDDOP N4/5)

Our Multi-Disciplinary Draughting National Certificate is one of the best, and most popular qualifications for a draughtsperson. It is the most recognised draughting qualification in the industry as well as the pre-requisite for any further studies in draughting. It will introduce you not only to the fundamentals of draughting but also your draughting software tools and numerous draughting disciplines such as architectural, mechanical, structural, process plant and many more. This qualification will also prepare you for the MDDOP N4/N5 National Examinations from the Department of Education.

 

Features & Benefits

  • This multi-disciplinary approach provides a wide range of occupational options for optimal job market compatibility as it does not limit the student to a single discipline.
  • It integrates multiple internationally recognised CAD software courses, accepted by industry at the value of thousands of Rands, a critically advantageous consideration for any employer during new hires.
  • We utilise industry-leading CAD/CAM/CAE software including Autodesk, Solidworks and ArchiCAD ensuring that you are educated in industry used CAD software.
