Revit Architecture

Course Overview

Revit Architecture Training course teaches you to master the use of Revit’s BIM platform which works the way architects and interior designers think. From Preliminary Design through Design Development, and into Construction Documents, the program streamlines the design process with a central 3D model. Changes made in one view update across all views and on the printable sheets. This offers you increased efficiency of up to 500% from traditional CAD software such as AutoCAD. The ability to use Revit Architecture is a necessary skill.
