Online Revit Essentials Training

Key details

Revit training for beginners, teaching the concepts behind BIM and key Revit techniques specific to architecture and structural design.

Autodesk Revit provides the tools you need to design, build and maintain high quality, energy efficient buildings. It supports BIM workflows, and provides comprehensive features for the entire construction project.

Revit Essentials training provides a thorough grounding in the application. On completion, you will be able to use Revit to take a project from conceptual through the stages of design, analysis, documentation and visualisation.

This course can be attended remotely, from your place of work or home. For a limited time, we’re offering discounts off the usual course price. 

 

Remote training

Remote training lets you join a live AutoCAD course from your place of work or home. You can:

  • See and hear our trainer and other delegates participating in the AutoCAD training.
  • Allow our trainer and the other delegates to see and hear you (if you have a webcam, and you’re agreeable).
  • Interact by speaking, using chat, or raising your ‘virtual hand’ if you need assistance.
  • Share your screen with our trainer to show them what you’re seeing.

Your experience will be as close as possible to actually being in the classroom…

  • The training will follow the same syllabus as our classroom-based AutoCAD 3D courses.
  • It will be presented by the same Autodesk Certified Instructors.
  • We’ll post you a training guide, and send you all the information you need to participate in the training. We’ll even post you a headset and microphone if you need one.
  • You’ll receive the same e-certificate confirming successful completion as classroom-based delegates.
  • You’ll carry out exercises in AutoCAD, assisted by our trainer. If you haven’t got AutoCAD installed on your computer, we’ll send you a link to fully-functional trial software that you can download and install.
  • You’ll be entitled to 30 days’ email support from your trainer.

When you attend our remote training, you’re participating in a real course, hosted by a real trainer, in real time. This training shouldn’t be confused with libraries of pre-prepared e-learning content, that provides an inferior training experience.

Who should attend?

This course is ideal for:

  • Architects and building designers.
  • Structural engineers.
  • General users.

If you’re going to be using Revit for Mechanical, Electrical or Plumbing, see Revit MEP Essentials.

Accredited Revit training

This Revit training courses are accredited by Autodesk.

Revit courses are hosted by Autodesk Certified Instructors, with vast experience of using the application professionally.

How will I learn?

Revit training is hands-on and practical.

Our trainers teach the necessary theory then demonstrate techniques step-by-step. You then practice the techniques taught on a computer running Revit.

There is plenty of time to ask questions, and you can take away all the files you create.

Training guide and certificate

Course delegates receive:

  • A highly-practical training guide for Revit Architecture or Revit Structures, depending on the area you want to focus on. You’ll refer to this throughout the course, and it will provide a useful refresher afterwards.
  • An e-certificate confirming successful completion of an accredited Revit training course. This is emailed to delegates directly from Autodesk.
