BIM 101 - An Introduction to BIM and Digital Engineering

'BIM 101' is a beginners’ course aimed at ALL novices to the world of Building Information Modelling (BIM) no need for a technical, CAD, IT or Information Management (IM) background.

You will be introduced to the requirements for the UK's BIM Level 2 / 'UK BIM Mandate' and the new International BIM Standard ISO 19650 series.

If you simply want to get an introduction in plain English, with no jargon – this is the course for you!


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 orginally underpinned these. There is nothing assumed about your background in technology / CAD or ‘BIM’. We start from basic principles for 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 and where things are going in a wider context - such as how BIM related to 'Digital Twins' and the Internet of Things (IoT). There are no silly questions.

This course is intentionally kept to a small group for the best learning outcomes. We encourage group interaction, but don’t force anything – you can come and simply listen if you want! Your Tutor will be available for follow-up calls - up to 6 weeks after the course - for any extra questions.

NON-TECH - 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, nor specific technologies.


If you are a GIS, Geospatial, mapping, Survey, Geomatics Professional - we offer a variation on this course to YOU:

  • Exclusive Session: Places are limited to ensure best learning outcomes with a small group.

  • Lunch included: This course includes lunch and tea & coffee throughout the day.

  • Tutor: The Tutor is a very experienced information management, digital transformation and geospatial specialist with 20 years' experience of strategic definition, Project Management & hands-on solutions implementation, particularly within the Built Environment and Natural Environment sectors.His background is in mapping, Geospatial solutions and GIS, but now consults on corporate-wide and board-level Information Management (IM), BIM and Business Intelligence (BI). Most often he works with Central Government and Architecture, Engineering, Construction, Owner Operator (AECOO) clients - such as property developers, Rail and Utilities companies

Testimonial for our training:

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

It was a theory based course and would give other technically minded people the context they might not necessarily have but would definitely benefit from."
