We are proud of our role as educators and the recognition we’ve received from partner organisations such as buildingSMART, the CIOB, GeoEnable and BSI, which is why we’re launching a new set of Digital Node training courses.
Our knowledge and deep understanding of the requirements across the industry has led to the development of these courses to tackle and address the skills that are currently in short supply in our BIM environment.
The four new courses will cover:
There are huge skills shortages in the BIM world including the fundamentals of BIM regarding terms and definitions and the critical processes that support a BIM project.
Our BIM Fundamentals course aims to support individuals in the design, construction and operation of built assets to understand basic BIM terms and definitions.
The two-day course will introduce delegates to crucial BIM standards and documents supporting their specific region, aligned to the globally exemplar UK BIM Learning outcomes framework.
We will explain BIM information management and the critical processes for successful project delivery and evaluate how the importance of asset and facilities management is crucial in a BIM process.
The process of BIM management relies on a dedicated team with the right skills and experience and can apply to a project or organisation.
This two-day course is a practical view of how BIM Management can be applied using a consistent framework, demystifying the role of a BIM Manager.
This course explains how you will learn to manage a BIM project and allocate clear roles and responsibilities, defining what documents are required across a project such as a BIM Execution Plan and model production and delivery table.
We will also ensure you understand what is required during procurement from your team and people including how to deliver data in the form of a data drop, and how to review model data (both geometrical and non-geometrical).
BIM for Executives
Our BIM For Executives course aims to support the BIM implementation at the very highest level of an organisation, specifically for CEOs and CFO level individuals. In general, people at this level within an organisation don’t have the time to learn about the finer details of BIM: they want the reasoning and drivers contextually.
We know that senior management must address BIM at a strategic level, yet few education courses touch on the business benefits of BIM, which is why we believe this course fills a gap tailored to their needs and location; currently in the UK, Australia and New Zealand. Moreover, in recognition of time-poor executives, this course is also offered as ‘Virtual Classrooms’ for those who want to learn more about BIM in the comfort and privacy of their office without having to physically attend a training course location.
ISO 19650-1 and 2 Concepts
As we see a marked increase in the use of BIM in the global built environment, there is still a basic need for an understanding of standards, specifications and methodology. When PAS1192-2 specification is replaced with ISO 19650-1 later this year, there will be a lot more to learn on how this will effect the delivery of our building and infrastructure projects.
Right now, we’re writing the core elements of this course and it will be available from November 2018.
Our courses have been written by our Digital Node technical experts and will be delivered by an experienced, digitally driven team, with a passion for the power of BIM.
