Welcome to Calvin's
15-04-2016 ....News Update 21
Hello. Calvin here. Another week or two has passed and therefore another fresh news update is now due to keep you well informed.
Extremely excited that the CalvinAcademy Internship Programme has kicked off for this semester (2nd term).
Plus, I have also noticed an uptick of confidence among big corporates as they send their staff to my CorelClass and CADclass for reliable and trusted training over the years with little advertising (mostly word-of-mouth referals).
Well, firstly let me put down this cup of Mugg & Bean House Blend for a moment and tell you about my exciting Internship Programme.....
As you can see in the picture on the right, I am very proud of Wouter, who started at the Academy this year and learned a Graphic Design skill with me in the1st semester. Now he is getting logos "artwork-ready" for t-shirt printing at a printing company, A1Print Works.
A big thank you to Nico for giving my students this opportunity to grow their new skills and giving my entrepreneurship college added value through practical application as well .
Later in the 3rd semester, Wouter (along with fellow students) will be able to apply this new software skill and internship experience by selling his own product at a profit. This will form part of their business plan project -his own designed t-shirts on a Cape Town flea-market maybe?
I have posted some of the benefits of my Academy Course from my website here:
I have noticed that especially from the start of this year, there has been a remarkable increase in On-site training from business corporations who want their staff trained with us.
Because I focus on one-to-one training to individuals to upgrade their AutoCAD and Graphic Design skills, I get more ambitious students who pay for my courses from their own pocket because they are determined to stay ahead with the latest versions and knowledge of added features in the software.
However, corporates are paying for their staff training with me not to get accreditation points but because my training experience and methods (one-to-one & screen capture of my classes) ensures learning is more effective.
Well done to Joel (pictured on the right) who has gone the extra mile to make himself skilled in 3D drawing as well and received our AutoCAD 3D certificate in this past week.

Note: whether you are a receptionist, admin or PA, then knowing Microsoft Office is not enough and you should be learning a graphics programme as well....it is not just for the marketing dept.
If you are interested in my one-to-one graphic design courses then find out more from my web page;
If you know of a young person who wants to become a successful entrepreneur and do an Internship as well, please invite them to view my website and drop me an email and I will show them how at CalvinAcademy.
Now is the right time to turn our young generation into JOB-CREATORS instead of JOB-SEEKERS.

Well, friends, that’s all from me for this week, have an awesome week and don’t be afraid to spread your wings and go beyond your comfort zone. Remember to always take courses to improve your skills and remain competitive.
