    Is this Course for You?  
    Implementation of BIM in the construction industry has become of paramount importance as BIM applications become mainstream worldwide.  In the UK it is mandatory that all public sector projects of more than £ 4M use BIM. The BIM authorising tool Revit (Architecture, Structural and MEP) is becoming the standard software used worldwide.  This course aims to enable the learner to present 2D and 3D drawings proficiently and to introduce the learner to 3D building modelling, visualization and BIM functionality such as scheduling and documenting a project.  It will develop the leaner’s skills in Revit Architecture and BIM workflow and collaboration and will serve to up-skill professionals in the construction industry in the use of BIM and Revit.
    Minimum Entry Requirements
    A knowledge of construction technology, basic building services and a working knowledge of CAD (typically AutoCAD) is desirable.
