About this Course

This is an introductory course to building information modelling (BIM). You will learn the fundamental concepts of BIM, together with the business benefits and the critical factors for the successful implementation on projects.

You will be introduced to the ISO 19650 suite and other working Standards and Specifications. New to ISO 19650? This course will guide you through what this is, why you need to use this standard and how to extract the most relevant parts to your role and your projects.

To achieve a higher level of competitive advantage, you must be able to understand the concepts of BIM and how to apply them to your projects. This course will provide you with a fundamental understanding of BIM and will show you how to implement BIM into your work so that you can demonstrate your added value to your clients.

This is BIM made easy, plus we will use real project case studies to demonstrate what works and just as importantly what doesn’t work when not using BIM correctly.

This course will be delivered live by your BIM Academy instructor over our virtual learning platform.
