Looking to upgrade your skills to pursue a career in the Canadian Virtual Design and Construction Industry?

Our BIM training is based on North American practices and is very practical and related to the work you are doing.

Overview

Unique opportunity for Executives in the Architectural, Engineering & Construction (AEC) sectors to participate in a BUILDING INFORMATION MODELING (BIM) training program that will help you to implement the benefits of digitization, lean and collaborative approaches in the delivery and use of built assets. BIM is a process that enables users to leverage digital technology to create efficiencies at every stage of the building life cycle from concept to demolition!

These five courses provide participants an opportunity to assess current and future project delivery and asset management processes, information flows, and understanding the principal roles and functions involved in their BIM strategy for specific business cases.

Key Features of the Program

Why should students choose to undertake this training program?

The benefits are truly hard to overlook. For instance, in this program students:

  • acquire practical experience related to BIM management
