Digital Node understands that it takes time and investment to support skills growth and knowledge – for either an individual or an organisation; this is why we are actively supporting the way in which individuals or companies can certify their skills. ‘Proof’ of skills, or certification, is crucial to the future of the industry and the process of procuring services and is a vital component for the successful delivery of BIM and BIM Level 2 in the UK. This is why we have supported the Chartered Institute of Building (CIOB) in their development of a certification for skills against the roles of BIM Management and Technician.
We developed two schemes against the course content we previously developed and deliver for the CIOB Academy in London: a BIM Management certification and BIM Technician certification. Together with the CIOB we are undertaking our first pilot this summer, and we have a number of individuals involved who have undertaken the BIM Management course over the past year. This is an exciting time for both Digital Node and the CIOB and we‘re certain this scheme will grow momentum over the course of the next 12 months globally for the CIOB.
Our first workshop, scheduled on the 1st of June, aims to explain to the importance of certification, and how it will be undertaken and achieved. We are very excited to support the CIOB on the first pilot, and we are also delivering course in London in June to further support and drive our passion for skills growth in the UK for BIM.
