Event description
We would be delighted if you could join us for the BIMcert closing event early 2020.

About this Event

The event will be held at the Titanic Belfast on Wednesday 22nd January 2020 to celebrate the results of the BIMcert project and the creation of our new online BIM training platform.

The BIM training platform was developed with feedback from the local and international construction sector, this new BIMcert training platform will enable site workers, and learners from a range of levels, to upskill in a variety of BIM specialisms. The e-learning platform will feature ‘bite-sized’ learning modules, to enable learners to upskill at their own pace and in their own time.

BIM is a modern digital technology supporting the sustainability targets of the construction sector, and with increased efficiencies being proven throughout all areas of the construction lifecycle, companies are increasingly valuing the benefits of BIM training and investment.

Register for our free to attend conference to find out more about BIMcert, and to hear from a range of experts in digital construction. Please see below the agenda, full details of speakers for the event will be able soon .
