The college was established in 1982 by Dieter Abert. Originally, Draughting by pen & paper and Computer Aided Draughting in 3D skill was taught. As new technology emerged the Receptionist, Secretarial and Accounts Courses were introduced, creating new and different courses in the college.


Eileen Skeates was the computer trainer for this discipline and Elizabeth Cawood had previously been a student at the college and replaced one of the outgoing trainers. Liz took over the "Accounts Courses" which proved a huge success and shortly thereafter, Dieter Albert sold the Receptionist/Secretarial/Accounts part of the college, to Eileen and Liz.


"In June 1994 starting from humble beginnings, both Liz and I have enjoyed a successful journey that spanned a 25-year partnership in CAD Training Centre, not only with the computer courses but in empowering our students with life skills in order to cope with the forever changing demands of society."


Even though we are a small training college we have had many hundreds of students, young and old, walk through our doors. As a service provider for both the SANZAF Organisation for the last 5 years and the Bishop Tutu Foundation for the last 4 years we believe in up-skilling our youth for a better society.


We are more than a computer training centre. This is a college where people young or mature come to up-skill themselves, gain confidence, find their strengths and where in the job market place they fit and learn to grow comfortable within themselves to be able to go forward and find employment. We believe in the development of each and every one of our students and will always strive to help them pursue their dreams.
