BIM Modelling

A growing number of top architectural firms are realising the potential of BIM to make their design process faster and more efficient, and the demand for architects with BIM certification is only expected to grow in the coming years. BIM architects can expect higher salaries and better job opportunities than their counterparts with the same level of experience.

Here’s a list of all the platforms where you can find online BIM courses as well as offline training in India if you want to upgrade your skill set to suit the current market requirements!

1. Go Pillar Academy

The online BIM course consists of pre-recorded video lessons that you can watch at any time. It also includes the registration to a dedicated Facebook group for any clarifications, questions or insights to be discussed with the teacher.

The course is divided into two parts: The first part of this course focuses on Autodesk Revit and consists of three packages - basic, intermediate and advanced. The second portion aims to teach everything there is to know about the creation, modification and use of families in Revit.

2. RICS Certificate

Through this interactive BIM certification program, you will be guided through each of the major project stages: from the strategic definition of the project right through to handover, operations and end of use.

At each stage, the trainer will demonstrate how to balance technical requirements with project management skills. However, the curriculum of this course is better suited for project managers and those seeking non-design roles. Only professionals with at least 5 years of experience in managing architectural projects are eligible to take this course.

3. BIMLabs

The BIMLabs training centre in Kerala offers multiple offline courses in BIM, ranging from construction management to architectural design. The duration ranges from 240 hours to 850 hours per course, and BIMLabs also offers placement opportunities after the completion of the course.

4. Graphisoft Learn

The Graphisoft online program lasts for 10 weeks (with an expectation of 6-8 hours to be dedicated per week) and includes 3 modules: BIM Office Management, Archicad Template Creation and BIM Project Coordination. Again, this course is more suitable for existing BIM Managers and Project Coordination rather than being tailor-made for architectural design roles.

5. Skill-Lync

The ‘Drafting and Design using Revit’ course offered by Skill-Lync provides tutorials on both parametric design skills and drafting standards to create error-free drawings.

The website suggests that the course is suitable for students of civil engineering in the first, second, third, or final year, as well as employees in civil engineering firms who are looking to upscale in their profession.

6. BSI Training Academy

The 60-hour long online BIM certification course focuses on teaching Autodesk Revit and Autodesk Navisworks to help you learn about BIM concepts, BIM processes, and BIM workflows in the Design and Construction industry. Of the 60 hours, 35 are for theory classes and 25 are dedicated to practical application.

All the programmes mentioned above teach software and the BIM philosophies but none teach the processes and workflows used in the industry and how to have a career growth with BIM skills.

The BIM Professional Course offered by Novatr is a 6-month online programme that helps you master BIM skills and apply them in the real world. The learners are mentored by a distinguished panel of BIM experts from the top-tier AEC firms from all around the world, namely Cooper Carry, Schmidt Hammer Lassen, Arup, Benoy and RSP Singapore and more.

The course focuses not only on software training but also the logic behind the processes and real-world implementation. This is taken up during the course’s live capstone project, where learners are taken through a simulation of a real-world BIM project that follows the RIBA structure.

The learners are enrolled in cohorts and are able to gain proficiency in BIM tools and processes without having to compromise on their full-time jobs or studies. The 6-month offering lets participants learn at their own pace in a virtual environment and concludes with career guidance and job placement assistance.

We are proud to share that graduates from our first cohort have landed placements at coveted AEC firms. Find out where they have been placed and how Novatr helped them kickstart their BIM journeys in our first ever Placement Report.

With the course being offered at one-tenth the price of typical Masters courses, there’s hardly a more accessible way for architects to join the digital revolution.
