This course will give you a foundational understanding to BIM, based on ISO 19650 series and BS/PAS 1192 series from the UK

About this Event

This live-streamed course will give you a foundational awareness of BIM According to ISO 19650 and 'BIM Level 2' from the BS/PAS 1192 series.

This course course aimed at those starting or refreshing their understanding of Information and Data Management, using Building Information Modelling (BIM) principals. There is no need for a IT technical, CAD, GIS or Information Management (IM) background.



  • "...The course was lively and engaging and I came away with exactly what I had hoped for: a clear understanding of what BIM is...
  • ...further my knowledge and also some ideas of how I can develop my technical skills to be better prepared for future work..."


  • "Excellent, the best BIM training I have had..."
  • "Clear and simple. Thank you..."
  • "At last, BIM in a way I understand..."
  • What did you like the most about the training? "The way of explanation about the BIM model with examples..." "...The structure of the training and presentation..."


This course is aligned to the UK BIM Framework Learning Outcomes

The UK BIM Framework Learning Outcomes identifies desired learning outcomes of introductory training in information management using building information modelling (BIM). It is intended it to be used by training providers (such as us) to support training course design, and by those seeking training to help them to understand the outcomes which will support the UK BIM Framework and the ISO 19650 series of standards.

The learning outcomes are arranged in five sections:

  • Why information management using BIM is required, and its strategic context in the UK
  • The implications and value of information management using BIM for your organization
  • How information requirements are identified and communicated.
  • How information is shared between organizations.
  • Understanding the legal and security implications of the UK BIM Framework and its interfaces with other important processes such as health and safety management.

Need more depth?

In this course, we can only introduce these themes and give you an overview. If you would like a more in depth course, please contact us, as we have been training the BIM standards, at all levels, for more that 5 years to 100's of people in person and many, many more online.

International BIM Standard - ISO 19650 Series

To participate in this course, you do not need to have your own copies of ISO 19650 (parts 1 and 2). But, we recommend you buy these to familiarise yourself with the structure and contents before the course. After the course you will need to buy these to action what you have learnt in any event. Please buy your copies of ISO 19650 parts 1 & 2 here >HERE

We Start With The Fundamentals: This course is intended as an introduction to the International BIM Standards ISO 19650 series, BIM Level 2 and the UK's BIM Mandate which originally underpinned these. There is nothing assumed about your background in technology / CAD or ‘BIM’. We start from basic principles of 'BIM Level 2.

Join us to start your journey into the understanding and implementation of the wider sense of BIM, in a safe environment. You will be able to ask anything you like about BIM in the UK, Globally and where things are going in a wider context - such as how BIM relates to 'Digital Twins' and the 'Internet of Things' (IoT).

BOOK TODAY - LIMITED PLACES - We keep the course numbers low for best learning outcomes. So please reserve your place today.

Non-Technical - As with all our courses, on this course the word ‘BIM’ is used in the widest sense of the meaning - we mean 'BIM' as in the UK’s 'BIM Level 2' mandate (based on BS/PAS 1192) & now ISO 19650 series, with robust information management, processes and change management. This course is NOT about 3D/4D CAD modelling alone, nor specific technologies.
