BIM Course – Basic


The objective of our BIM Course Basic is to introduce beginner modeller techniques and enabling students to create basic 3D BIM Models using Autodesk Revit software. Our BIM Course basic will cover all 3 disciplines of the Construction Industry:

  • Architectural BIM Modelling
  • Structural BIM Modelling
  • M&E BIM Modelling

Our class includes downloadable materials and training exercises that are designed to reinforce/retain new skills and engage students in active learning.

Our training method makes sure that you are able to catch up by introducing a Practice Session after every topic, before continuing on to the next topic. We limit the number of students to 8 pax, so we can focus on quality graduates instead of quantity.

Revit is a high-demand software skill in both domestically, where it is a requirement to submit in native BIM, and internationally. Learning to use it would expand your skills set greatly for future career opportunities.

“The instructor is patient to teach in different way to make you understand all topics. Best instructor with excellent Autocad knowledge.”

“I’m so glad I decided to take this course, it is especially useful for beginners like myself with no prior experience with Autocad. Instructor Kenn was friendly and supportive, he was very thorough and patient throughout, which makes learning so much easier. Please pass on my thanks to Kenn, he has been a great source of guidance and insight. The material provided is also easy to understand and informative. This beginner course is reasonably priced and I can’t recommend this course highly enough. Only feedback is I wish the projector in the facility could be clearer, the words are a little small making it hard to read at times. Having said that, it’s worth it. I finished the course feeling confident and is keen to take up more courses at CAD drafting Singapore. Thank you!”

“The course was very helpful.”

Kenn is very professional pertaining to course enquiries, very meticulous and patience. Will check on students from time to time to ensure we are catching up with the course. Looking forward to attending more course run by him. Well done.

“this cause is very useful for me in my future career”

“A very well structured course for all the industrial personnel .”

“Am Praveen here Construction Site Engineer in Singapore, This course help full for my job. I want continue join more courses related to my job.”

“It was an enjoyable course, with very nice milo”
