Classes 2018

Join a CDT class any time…CDT 2018 is two x 22 week semesters with winter holiday classes. All CDT classes are suitable for ages 16+. CDT does not offer children’s classes, except CDTeens extra needs classes, which are for 12 – 22 years. Classes follow a progress plan, so for your best benefit CDT encourages regular attendance. Classes will run on public holidays by prior arrangement by teachers and students.
