Welcome to Calvin's
23-10-2016 ....News Update 37
Hello. Calvin here. I have been offeing one-to-one computer classes since 1995 (more than 20 yrs - started with CorelDRAW version 3) on specialist sofware because that is still the best way to learn "complicated" design software like AutoCAD, SolidWorks and Adobe products and CorelDRAW X8 (now on version 18...the X is the greek number for 10).
But did you know that you don't have to come to my training school in Parow West (near sports fields) because I have made my training services even more convenient by getting in my car and driving to your work place...at half the price of UBER taxis and saving you petrol and time as well !!
Why? Not all...but many of you have kids and it is difficult to do classes after hours - no babysitter; got to feed the family; gym commitments and so the list goes on.
Now there is no more reasons to hold you back and you CAN upgrade your skill level and get ahead in your career.
Not only do I teach but I encourage my students to have a "CAN DO" approach to life by finding and assisting them with useful solutions to overcome obstacles.
Example: I have helped them upgrade their laptops and computer systems and have also assisted with cutom-made video tutorials for specific design goals. I believe in going the extra-mile as word-of-mouth and my training reputation is very important to me.
That is another reason why I have training partners who is well versed in my unique training steps and methods.
By the end of this year, Ivan Clow would have been helping me teach for five years....that type of experience simply cannot easily be replaced. "Thank you Ivan...your energy drink is waiting for you at your next CADclass lesson.....LOL".
If you are interested in On-Site training or any of my one-to-one instructor -led classes at my school, then please reply to this email and I will send you more specific course information. Or view the course list from my website page here...
My business offers have been focused mostly on one-to-one computer graphics.
However, being so focused on training, the poor education system and the destructive nature of the #feesmustfallcampaign in our country has got me worried.
Instead of just complaining about it (having 18 year old twins who soon must also become self-sufficiant), I have decided to "be the change" I wanted to see and therefore simply started my own college in Feb this year to focus on the training of our young jobless children as well.
CalvinAcademy is there to equip young people through computer skills development, then internships, then employment and ultimately self-employment through mentorship....and every parent and business owner's support is vital.

I want to encourage all the readers of my weekly newsletter that although I am always talking about INCREASING YOUR COMPUTER SKILLS through one-to-one training, I can only give a discount when a student has completed the level 1 course as an incentive not to wait but start level 2 immediately.
The prices of my one-to-one training courses for specialist products like Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator & InDesign is already so low.
Please compare prices and let me know if you find a price lower than mine at a reputable training college/company that have been offering Adobe and AutoCAD skills for more than 15 years like I have.
I focus on quality and added value. My reputation and the reliability of my experienced trainers (Nadia and Ivan) that use my training methods to help me is so important to me that it has almost become an obsession.
Now let me say this: computer graphics and AutoCAD training skills for corporate employees is best attained if you get trained ONE-TO-ONE BY AN EXPERT like myself.
Learning the functions and methods on your own just don’t work and it is cause for frustration because you need to know the tricks and tips of an expert like myself and my trainers who know how to teach you to APPLY what you have learned in class - application of the programme in a practical manner with unique example is vital.
My new one-to-one computer training intake dates for the 2nd half of October month is now listed on my various branded websites.
