Is this course right for me? 

This course a beginners level course, which assumes you have little of no involvement in BIM, nor IT / CAD etc. We take you through the fundamentals of BIM.

Some of the people that have attended our past BIM training include these diverse roles:

Project Manager, Asset Manager, Surveyor, GIS Manager, BIM Lead, Assistant Project Manager (Information Management), Architect, Business Operations Manager, CAD Designer, CAD Modeller, CDO, CEO, COO, Chartered Surveyor , Geospatial Scientist, Director.

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).

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.



  • "...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..."
