About PTC

AnnatjiePerspective Training College was founded by Annatjie Faul and Bertie Hanekom. Annatjie is currently the Associate Dean of Academic Affairs at the University of Louisville in Kentucky, USA and Bertie is the managing director of PTC. He has recently completed his doctoral studies at the North West University (Potchefstroom Campus).


In 1986, they met at a workshop. They discovered mutual goals: to find out what it means to counsel someone from a Christian perspective. Because they could not find programmes that met these requirements, they decided to develop the programmes themselves. This partnership eventually led to the establishment of Perspective Training College (PTC) in 1991.
