Long Description

This 100% online programme will provide learners with a solid grounding in Building Information Modelling (BIM) using Autodesk's Revit Architecture.

The programme will encompass the basics of 3D building modeling and architectural visualisation. BIM functionality such as tables and building quantities will also be covered. The programme will benefit existing AutoCAD users as well as those learning CAD for the first time. The programme is at level 6 (special purpose) on the National Framework of Qualifications.

The programme will develop a range of skills which the successful graduate can utilise within existing skill sets to work in the evolving construction sector.

What will the time commitment be?
Each 5 credits will normally equate to approximately 100 Total Learning Hours.

These platforms are designed to be easy to use, and training videos will be provided. Lectures will be delivered online; the platform is very similar to Skype, with some additional functionality such as online 'chat'. Moodle will contain course materials, recordings of the lectures & demonstrations, as well as being the platform to submit your assignments for the course.

Any files opened using the academic version will be digitally stamped by the software. You will require a computer (desktop or laptop) to undertake the course, which must have audio functionality. The minimum specification of machine is given here:
