Autodesk Revit Architecture Fundamentals - Virtual Course

This is an "online" version of the Autodesk Revit Architecture Fundamentals training course, delivered remotely over a number of individual half-day sessions. The course will enable delegates to create full 3D architectural project models and set them up as working drawings. The training course focuses on basic tools that the majority need to understand in order to work with the Autodesk Revit Architecture software.

"The course ran very smoothly despite being online rather than face to face. Terry's instruction was very clear and he led the course at a very good pace.” Naveeta


Prerequisites

As this course is delivered via a web-link, those attending will need to have access to a workstation, connected to the internet, and with Revit installed. A twin screen setup and a headset with microphone is also highly recommended.
Delegates should ideally have had some exposure to Computer Aided Design systems, as well as an understanding of Architectural terminology. Familiarity with MS-Windows at user level is also desirable.
Please note, topics and timings may be subject to change.
