Do you offer courses in Johannesburg, Cape Town or anywhere else in South Africa ?

Yes, yes and yes. Besides opening a new branch in Gauteng we also offer courses in any city in South Africa. We also offer custom and private training anywhere in South Africa. Please get in touch with your requirements then we can take it from there. Please note that there is a minimum of 3 students required for us to travel. Otherwise you can visit our KZN or Gauteng Academy.

I am really new to all of this, do you offer a course for absolute beginners ?

Yes, our Introduction to Web Design course is for absolute beginners not knowing anything at all about website designing. We also have a great Graphic Design Course for Absolute beginners and both of these courses will teach you everything you need to know in order to build awesome websites and design great graphics.

Do you offer custom courses ?

We offer custom courses on all of our current subjects as well as subjects not listed ie: jQuery, PHP etc… Please get in touch with your requirements then we can take it from there.

How much is it for a course ?

All our course prices vary. You can view the prices for each course on the actual course page at the top right hand side of the page. Under the “COURSE INFO”section. Alternatively you can view the prices and all discounted deals that we currently have on the Course Discounted Packages page.

Do I need to have Adobe Software in order to work with your courses ?

No, all our training is practical. We focus more on the skill than the actual software. So after completing our course you can use any software to apply your new skills. We also have a download page with some free software. You can view the list of applications here.

Do I receive a certificate after finishing my course and do you have tests ?

All students will receive a WDA Certified Certificate of Attendance. We do have tests after each subject. The tests are mostly in place to see if you understood everything in class and if we should cover any of the topics that you didn’t.

I know some basic HTML & CSS, what course would you suggest?

If you have basic HTML & CSS skills we would suggest doing the HTML5 & CSS3 course initially. After that you can also do the Mobile Design and Search Engine Optimisation courses to improve your HTML skills. A definite course will be the WordPress course and if you would like to increase your list of services we also offer Social Media Marketing and Adobe Flash Courses. You can always get in touch if you would like to discuss a personal development roadmap.

Are you sure I can learn HTML in 2 days ?

Most definitely yes. We would actually go as far and say. We challenge any student that has completed a one year course in web design and see who can design the better website. Our students are getting full time employment as well as some great success stories of own companies doing great. We guarantree you will be able to build awesome websites. Although we offer free refresher courses, we only had a handful of students making use of it.

Can you suggest any good places to stay while im down in Amanzimtoti ?

We have a list of some good B&B’s close to the office. You can get in touch for more information regarding your specific needs.

Why should I study through Web Design Academy ?

Because we are one of the few places in Africa that offers PRACTICAL training on these subjects. Our tutor shares years of experience in class, something that you will not find anywhere else. All our courses are 100% practical and we actually build a website, mobile app, design logo’s, custom facebook pages etc.. in class. We also offer a free refresher course at any time within a year. So you can come and sit for the same course again at any time for free. For if you maybe did not understand a topic we make sure you get the best of the latest technologies in ONLINE MARKETING, DESIGN and DEVELOPMENT. WE GUARANTEE YOUR KNOWLEDGE ON ALL SUBJECTS

We also have 4 course packages that includes some or all of our subjects and range from 5 days to 15 days. You can view our course packages – WEB DESIGN ACADEMY COURSE PACKAGES

Can we break up/stagger the course packages?

The packages available take place over consecutive weeks however, you are welcome to break up the 10 Day, 13 Day and 15 Day packages.  For instance if you can take the 15 day package, you can attend one week a month. You will still receive the discounted price. Please Contact Us in this regard.

How do the classes work?

Classes commence at 09:00am sharp. Please be at the premises between 08:30am – 09:00am. We will supply you with all the Hardware and Software that you need to complete your Course. We also offer fresh cold water with coffee and tea throughout the day. We will have a tea break at 10:30am – 10:45pm and a lunch break at 12:00pm – 12:30pm. Classes will finish around 14:00pm. We will supply all course material and working files on a CD. We will write all files on the last day of the course so that you get everything that we worked on during the course.

Can I Pay by Credit Card?

All payments are done over EFT. We do not offer card payment facilities. Our banking details are on the invoice on request. Please note, no class will be confirmed before payment has been made.

Can I get a job after completing your Courses?

Yes, we do get enquiries from numerous companies requesting students who have completed our courses. Companies looking to offer employment or an internship can be forwarded to you personally. If you are looking for Web Design Agencies, we can direct you as well.


We have no special pre requisites in order to attend our academy. You don’t even need to have matric. All you need to know is how to use a computer, we teach you the rest.

After attending our courses you are able to design websites and make your course money back with only 1 website. Everything after that is generating extra income.

This is by far the quickest and easiest way to start earning a very decent income for anyone, no matter age, experience or degree.

Attending short courses in the web industry is far better than attending a 3 year degree. By the end of your 3rd year everything you learned is old technology already. What a waste that is
