Digital Node began as an evolved idea in 2013 as I knew there was something big missing in the global BIM environment; namely providing education, training and consultancy services to ensure businesses are meeting the demands of a digital built environment.
We are now a global operation and work with many clients spanning multiple continents including the successful Global eTraining (GeT) organisation, who, over the past seven years have sold over a million courses to learners in 150 countries.
My relationship with GeT began in London in 2014 when I was introduced to Susan Brattberg, their Founder and Chief Customer Officer while they were visiting the UK to promote their training material. We formed a strong relationship, and began to work together in earnest. GeT were one of the first strategic relationships Digital Node formed, and we continue to work with the company to develop online training content to this day including some of the following courses:
- Autodesk Navisworks
- Autodesk Recap
- Autodesk Infraworks
- Global BIM Standards library (selling now)
- Autodesk BIM 360 Solutions
The courses I help to develop have been sold globally. Most recently, we have supported GeT in the development of an online Global BIM Standards Library focusing on best practice principles in BIM.
We were also lucky enough to support GeT at Autodesk University in Las Vegas in November 2017, marketing the content and delivering education on where the courses fit against their other online training solutions. I helped promote the BIM Standards library, and they supported me on the stand with the Women in BIM initiative. They also provided Women in BIM ten licenses of their training library for AEC which includes some of the content we have developed.
We will continue to help develop content for Global eTraining in many technology platforms supporting the BIM process including Autodesk Navisworks and Infraworks, and in the new year we will be helping to develop new ReCap and BIM 360 courses.
Our relationship with GeT is incredibly fulfilling, as we get to deliver essential, informative and crucial training for the construction industry worldwide. Susan recently commented that:
“Global eTraining is proud to collaborate with Digital Node and to support AEC firms from around the world in their BIM training initiatives. The courses we have sold so far, and the courses we are developing now are imperative if we are to grasp the opportunities offered by a digital built environment.”
