This course will also discuss the creation of the federated model and the ever so important BIM-based spatial coordination process, in addition, it introduces the candidate to the conceptual and pre-construction estimation processes in BIM and define the over BIM methodologies.


The intent of this course is not to make the participant an immediate expert of BIM or it is intended to provide the participant with full knowledge of any particular BIM software application.

  • The second part of the session is to separate into groups of specific trades in order to discuss the relationship of the day’s topic relating to that trade.

  • The third and final part of the session is to create teams from each trade in order to solve or communicate a specific problem relating to the day’s topic.


Upon completion of the course, the participant is required to take the course exam in order to obtain the designated title. For more information on the exam, please refer to the Course Exam Booklet or contact your program advisor for details.
