WHAT WE DO
The Hein Wagner Academy specialises in the post-grade 12 training of blind and visually impaired persons, and is based in Worcester, South Africa.
The Hein Wagner Academy was founded in 2019 by blind extreme adventurer and motivational speaker, Hein Wagner, after the closure of the former training facility, Department for Career Development, in 2018.
Our training facilities are set up to cater specifically to the training needs of the blind and visually impaired. Each computer has a speech and magnification programme already loaded and our lecturers and trainers are highly specialised with years of experience in training the blind and visually impaired.
We have the following training options available: Microsoft Office-based short courses, full-time certificate courses, and a two-year Cyber Security program.
Students can choose to apply for one of two nationally accredited courses offered in partnership with Boland College: Management Assistant (N4 - N6) or Marketing Management (N4 - N6).
Cyber Security Programme
As a CompTIA-authorised academy partner and Cisco-certified networking academy, we offer a 2 year cyber security programme.
The Microsoft Office / Liquid VOP / Apple / Smart device courses are one week each. These courses are designed to suit individual needs and are focused on maximum trainer-student interaction.
