African Academy to include AVEVA Everything3D on engineering training courses 

Gauteng, South Africa: AVEVA announced today that the African Academy has selected AVEVA Everything3D™ (AVEVA E3D™) for its Plant 3D design training courses from January 2016.  AVEVA E3D is fast becoming the design software of choice for major capital projects around the world. AVEVA E3D has a state-of-the-art, intuitive user interface that is unmatched in the industry and is ideally suited for the rapid training of new engineers. Students who receive certification on AVEVA E3D will join a large, globally distributed community of designers that can work efficiently together on the most complex greenfield and brownfield projects.  

Addressing South Africa’s need for well-trained and skilled draughtspersons, African Academy offers courses such as Plant Engineering Design and Draughting, Construction Engineering Design and Draughting, and Electrical Engineering Design and Draughting. African Academy trains approximately half of all newly qualified draughtspersons in South Africa every year. 

‘These new courses are helping to close the skills gap between Engineers and Draughtspersons’, said Kubera Naidoo, Managing Director, African Academy. ‘Students leave the Academy fully trained and ready to work on major capital projects immediately. Our aim is to create a bridge for our students to enter the industry with marketable skills that will serve them well throughout their entire career. Working on software such as AVEVA E3D means that students will have hands-on, practical experience with state-of-the-art software that will be very attractive to employers.’ 


For over 45 years, AVEVA software has enabled the creation of some of the world’s most complex power and process plants, vessels and offshore facilities. AVEVA’s Digital Asset approach ensures there is always an accurate digital representation of each physical asset.  This allows engineering contractors, owner operators and ship builders to work more safely, more efficiently and with less risk throughout the life cycle of their projects and operations.
