Building Information Modeling (BIM) is an organizational, a philosophical, and a strategic change to the construction industry. How BIM is embraced within a firm is largely left up to those interpreting this philosophy into practice. With the idea that a learner learns best through repetition, BIM 101 introduces the foundational concepts so that in subsequent courses designed for specific stakeholders we can review more specifically how that concept applies – rather than introduce the concept.



By the end of the BIM 101course, you will be able to clarify BIM misconceptions by discussing why they exist and the realities of the industry, define BIM as a process, and develop and understanding of why BIM and Revit are not synonymous terms, introduce the benefits of modeling for the various stakeholders in the architecture, engineering, construction and operations industry, and present the industry standard tools previously developed to manage the BIM process within the industry.



This course is designed for the new BIM Manager and Revit user. It is recommended that you have a working knowledge of drafting, design or engineering principles and experience with Microsoft Windows. This training is compatible with Windows XP, Windows 8 and Windows 10.

Thanks to you I showed one coworker my Revit rendering with my Google Cardboard glasses and ended up in the President's office showing him. They all think I'm a genius & it's because of you!

My name is Willie Coker and I recently took a 24 hour AutoCAD course with Rick Feineis as my instructor. I learned so much in so little time. Rick was able to teach me AutoCAD specifically in just what I requested for the line of work that I do for living. Right after I designed a fire sprinkler system I submitted the plans to two separate plan reviewers and both of the plan reviewers signed off on…read more

After completing AutoCAD training with Rick Feineis a couple of months ago, there was not a moment of doubt to continue with the Revit training. I learned a lot, it was fun and Rick is very skilled, passionate in what he does and a great teacher! Still amazed that thanks to modern technology (and a teacher who is willing to wake up at 6am on a Sunday because of time difference) I was lucky enough…read more

I would strongly recommend this course to absolutely anyone who is interested in learning the basics of AutoCAD. Even those who have limited computer skills can learn from Rick. All concepts are clearly explained with helpful examples, and Rick makes sure every student understands before moving on to the next topic. Even after the course, Rick makes it easy to ask questions via email or phone and responds quickly. I'm very likely to look into…read more
