Certificate in Revit / BIM

Irish Construction Excellence Award logo

This Revit / BIM course has been shortlisted by Irish Construction Excellence Awards 2018 (ICE Awards) in the Third Level Course - Post Graduate, Special Purpose or Distance Learning category.

Course Details

This 8-week course will provide you with a comprehensive set of skills and knowledge that is quickly becoming industry-standard throughout the construction industry.

Today, clients often request that construction work is carried out using Level 2 BIM. The UK has mandated Level 2 BIM for all public projects, and Ireland and the rest of Europe are likely to follow suit.

To win work, practices must up-skill their existing workforce, and ensure that they hire suitably qualified staff. Level 2 BIM, which is now industry-standard in Ireland, requires design teams and contractor teams to collaborate efficiently. To achieve this, all team members must comply with the British Standard BS1192:2007 - Collaborative Production of Architectural, Engineering and Construction Information.

The course delivers this skill set, starting at the very beginning. This is a fast-moving course, so applicants should already have some familiarity with drafting software such as Revit or AutoCAD.

The course is led by a professional who shares many years of experience for best practice through special tips & tricks sessions in each class.

This will run as an online course due to public health measures. Your lecturer will lead classes via Microsoft Teams, and course material will be available to download.

Please be aware that although this course is open to everyone, it does not focus on Revit MEP (Mechanical, Electrical & Plumbing).
