Autodesk Revit MEP Fundamentals - Virtual Course

This is an "online" version of the Autodesk Revit MEP Fundamentals training course, delivered remotely over a number of individual half-day sessions. The course has been designed to teach the concepts and principles of creating 3D parametric models of MEP systems from engineering design through construction documentation. The course is intended to introduce delegates to the software user interface and the basic HVAC, electrical, and piping/plumbing components that make the Autodesk Revit MEP software a powerful and flexible engineering modelling tool.


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. As the course introduces the fundamental skills in learning the Autodesk Revit MEP software. It is highly recommended that those attending have experience and knowledge in MEP engineering and its terminology, as well as an understanding of the essentials of basic MS-Windows use.
