Autodesk Revit - Building Information Modelling (BIM) - Online CPD course

About the course

Our Autodesk Revit software Intermediates (BIM) course is a follow up course to the Introduction to Autodesk Revit software (BIM) program. This Intermediate course teaches you how to further develop your 3D modelling skills and think in three-dimensional manner which is very revolutionary and much more forward thinking in comparison to producing and updating industry drawings only in 2D manner (which CAD software offers).

This course is shaped around the way architects think and the concept of Building Information Modelling (BIM). Therefore, the course is suitable for any individuals interested in Architecture, Design and/or the Construction Industry and are looking to develop further and bring their skills up to date with the current architectural industry standards in terms of 3D modelling (BIM). Ideally, you would be expected to have successfully completed the Introductory Course we offer prior to enrolling on this next level one.

Revit software allows for the design process to be streamlined through the use of a Central 3D model (which can be shared with the whole design team), where changes are made in one view, it updates instantly across all views, as well as on the printable sheets. This revolutionary way of working has already had a huge impact on the industry, particularly increasing efficiency in terms of cost and speed of the overall workflow. This is why the demand for Revit-skilled professionals in the industry has grown rapidly in the past few years and increasingly so. As a result, the better professional Revit skills you develop, the more responsive to the current industry needs you become.

Course outline

The Intermediate course is a natural follow up of the Introduction course and it will ensure further skill advancement through explaining how to:

  • work with view templates;
  • model and modify curtain walls and work with mullions and curtain grids;
  • add floors, work with joining geometry, create shaft openings, create sloped floors;
  • model/sketch/modify ceilings;
  • add ceiling fixtures and create ceiling soffits;
  • model roofs by footprint;
  • create roofs by extrusion;
  • create and modify component-based stairs to specific runs and landings dimensions;
  • work with railings;
  • model custom stairs and ramps;
  • add component features, such as furniture and equipment;
  • set up sheets and modify views on sheets to create construction documents and place;
  • add rooms and tags;
  • annotate construction documents including adding text, dimensions, details and tags;
  • work with schedules;
  • create legends;
  • create details, add detailed components, create filled regions and add detail tags;
  • understand work sets and their role in the Revit and BIM work environment.

Building Information Modelling (BIM) and Autodesk Revit software are useful tools for creating professional 3D models which are essential at all stages in the building process. Understanding the software interface and terminology enhances one's ability to create powerful models, move around in the various views of the model and make updates to the model which instantly update across the whole project. Such skills are very beneficial when working with the rest of the design team as well as communicating with clients.

Booking deadlines

Bookings for all Creative Arts Short Courses will be reviewed 2 weeks before the start date of each course. This will allow the Short Course team to determine whether a course has met the minimum number of students needed for the class to run. If a class has failed to recruit, the class will be re-scheduled and you will be informed. Where relevant you will be offered an alternative class. If the course has met minimum numbers, bookings will stay open to the course start date or until it has met maximum numbers. 

We encourage you to book early before the deadline to avoid disappointment.

Bookings for all short courses need to be made online through the Universities’ online booking system, before a course commences. You cannot enrol or attend a class on the day the course starts, without prior arrangement.
