The proliferation of BIM in the worldwide context means that Irish companies are striving to invest in the associated software and training. There is a demand for construction and engineering professionals with the acquired transferable as well as technical skills to take up the role of BIM operator or manager in the changed environment.

The Certificate in Revit and 4D BIM focuses on practical skills in the use of the BIM authorising tool Revit, aiming to provide learners with the digital skills required in a BIM managed environment. Learners on this course come from a diverse range of backgrounds in terms of education and experience, leading to a dynamic mix in the virtual classroom.



The course explores the use of Revit software and the BIM process in the effective design and delivery of construction projects, concentrating firstly on acquiring the Revit skills to produce a 3D BIM model of a domestic and commercial building; progressing to a project-based curriculum focussed on the succeeding dimensions of BIM such as 4D clash detection, 5D quantity take-off and 6D energy modelling, developing and advancing the learner’s skills in Revit Architecture and BIM workflow and collaboration.
