The AEC (architecture, engineering, construction) industry relies heavily on the BIM (Building Information Modelling) process, as BIM has made project execution more systematic, leaving very little room for error.
Over time, AEC firms have been recruiting candidates who are well-versed with the BIM concept. In the MEP (mechanical, electrical and plumbing) domain, several BIM roles have emerged, such as MEP BIM coordinator, BIM manager, MEP BIM modeler, etc. These roles involve various responsibilities, such as:
Revit BIM training centres offer several MEP BIM courses. These courses acquaint candidates with BIM process and train them to work on Revit MEP. Some courses are as follows:
Grey Edge is an Autodesk Authorised Training Centre (ATC) that offers pre-recorded, video-based Revit MEP online training courses. They are:
These courses enable candidates to apply for MEP jobs with designations such as Revit modellers or MEP coordinators. On completion of these courses, candidates can create detailed HVAC, mechanical piping, electrical lighting and containment, public health and drainage models. Further, they can create detailed MEP legends and installation details and can extract BOQ (Bill of Quantities) and final documents.
This course trains aspiring MEPF professionals on the tools and coordination concepts needed to prepare clash-free MEP models, using Autodesk Revit and Navisworks, required for Revit MEP jobs. On course completion, candidates can apply for jobs with designations such as BIM MEP modellers, MEP BIM managers, MEP BIM documentation specialists, MEP BIM draftsmen/technicians.
Thus, the courses offered by Revit BIM training centres are designed to teach participants how to fufill the responsibilities of different MEP roles. The training on Revit MEP is conducted with a project-based training approach. This enables new recruits to get started on industry projects as soon as they are hired.
