This three-day course is aimed at construction professionals who wish to gain a comprehensive introduction to Autodesk Revit as well as hands-on experience so they’ll be confident about using Building Information Modelling (BIM) for producing full mechanical, electrical and plumbing (MEP) systems.

You’ll start by learning how to set up projects and use the core 3D modelling tools. Then you’ll progress to functionality for designing MEP systems and producing complete project documentation.

Our stimulating and comprehensive course will cover techniques for the latest version of Autodesk Revit. You’ll be taught by instructors at the BIM Academy, which was co-founded by Northumbria University, and which is an Autodesk Authorised Training Centre.
