The BIM Basic Course is a training course intended for students in the building, engineering, and architecture fields. It offers advantages like better project organisation, collaboration, and practical exposure to BIM software tools by giving a strong foundation in BIM principles and practises. Through hands-on activities and interactive workshops, the course's two-month length covers key BIM topics. Participants who successfully complete the course acquire the knowledge and abilities needed to use BIM workflows, contribute effectively to projects, and interact with interdisciplinary teams. For those looking to excel in the fast-paced world of BIM and take advantage of the opportunities it provides in the AEC industry, the BIM Basic Course serves as a good place to start.
The main goal of the BIM Basic Course is to give participants a firm foundation in the theories and practises of building information modelling (BIM). Participants will gain a thorough understanding of fundamental BIM concepts and their benefits in the Architecture, Engineering, and Construction (AEC) business throughout the course. By the end of the course, participants will have mastered frequently used BIM software tools, enabling them to use these tools efficiently in their professional practice. Participants will also learn about BIM workflows and collaboration strategies, giving them the tools to implement BIM practises to better organise and coordinate projects. The course emphasises the extraction of precise quantity takeoffs from BIM models, while also emphasising the development of participants' abilities to create and manage BIM models competently.
The BIM Basic Course has been designed for students and professionals in the fields of Architecture, Engineering, Construction, and related disciplines. Our course is also open to individuals who meet the following qualifications:
Although there are no specific prerequisites for this course, having a fundamental understanding of construction methods and familiarity with engineering or architectural principles can be helpful. In general, prerequisites for The BIM Basic Course include a basic understanding of construction procedures as well as familiarity with engineering or architectural principles. Additionally, since BIM uses software tools and technology, having a basic understanding of computers is helpful. These prerequisites give participants a strong foundation from which to engage with the course material and comprehend the topics and practises covered. People without prior understanding in these areas can nevertheless become proficient in BIM concepts and practises because the course is created to accommodate students with varied degrees of experience and skill.
To maximise learning outcomes, the BIM Basic Course at BIM Cafe employs a blended teaching model. We include interactive workshops, practical activities, and theoretical training. To obtain practical experience, participants will have the chance to work on actual BIM projects (LOD 200). A blended learning strategy that blends online and in-person learning is another option for how the course might be delivered. Other options include classroom-based sessions, online modules, and mixed learning.
