Revit is one of the most used programs around the world for the BIM methodology; allows you to create parametric 3D models from all AECo areas – Architecture, Engineering and Civil Construction.
This course was specifically designed to equip trainees with the skills needed to use Revit in electrical specialty projects. Trainees should have basic knowledge of BIM methodology and fundamental use of Revit.
WHO IS IT FOR
Engineers, designers, technicians, designers and anyone who wants to use Revit in electrical specialty projects within the scope of the BIM methodology.
DURATION AND LOCATION
24 hours; Aveiro
DATES AND TIME
At the end of the course, trainees will be prepared to use the tools and techniques used in Revit to work on electrical specialty projects; techniques for modeling electrical networks, creating and managing systems of the various sub-specialties are discussed.
