Unit 1: An Introduction to Building Information Modeling Designed

Whether you are a prime contractor using BIM across an entire project or a subcontractor impacted by a specific BIM implementation, this emerging practice requires new mindsets  and technological know-how in order to achieve significant improvements in efficiency and cost control. Associated General Contractors of America’s (AGC) BIM Education Program - developed in conjunction with leading BIM practitioners, technology firms and educators - is designed to prepare construction professionals at all experience levels to successfully implement BIM on a construction project. Each BIM Education Program unit provides a full day of training for a total of 32 hours. The Certificate of Management - Building Information Modeling (CM-BIM) is the construction industry’s only credential that teaches the practical application of the BIM process for commercial construction firms.

This unit is the first step for any company looking to understand the role of BIM in our industry and develop its own BIM Champion. Unit 1 provides a comprehensive understanding of BIM terminology, while introducing important concepts that are necessary to understand how BIM is changing the construction process. The course culminates with participants developing a Company BIM Assessment to back to their organizations to begin implementing, on BIM projects and corporate-wide.
