This online course aims to equip participants with BIM best practice, which when adopted leads towards efficient delivery, driving excellence, preventing accidents and saving time and money – both now and in future years.


The course offers participants a solid grounding in BIM:

  • an insight into processes;

  • a good understanding and knowledge of the key principles of Building Information Modelling (BIM) Level 2, which can be applied locally while still being consistent with the industry internationally;

  • an awareness of the emerging buildingSMART International information standard;

  • relevant knowledge and capabilities to achieve internationally recognised good practice;

  • awareness of other international developments such as open BIM initiatives formed to facilitate interoperability;

  • an understanding of BIM from a whole life cycle perspective;

  • knowledge of where to access standards and resources to take learning back into the workplace.

The final online exam is a first step towards BRE Academy Membership and BIM Certification for Individuals

Successful completion of the course provides participants with 14 hours CPD.
