BIM education.

Our CBM course is the first and only BIM certified course for managers in Vietnam.

The Certified BIM Manager (CBM) is the third and most advanced certificate offered by TBFA’s BIM Education Program. It is a must-have certification for anyone who intends to work and participate in Vietnam's AEC industry in the immediate future. Vietnam's current BIM Roadmap stipulates that by 2019, the building industry will have to adopt BIM and implement on all Grade A, Infrastructure, and Category I construction projects. This means Vietnam's Architecture, Engineering, Construction, and Building Operation professionals will have to learn and apply BIM at the design, engineering, and construction level. This 30-hour course provides an in-depth look at Building Information Modeling and Building Management systems that are required to apply for the majority of the construction projects in Vietnam.

Course schedules.

S1.M. | 15-day | 30 hours: 

Mondays - Fridays | 18:00 - 20:00 ​

Dates coming in 2018. We will update the schedule of this course soon.

Course available soon.

This one-of-a-kind in-depth course introduces you (the CBM candidate) to the various process and components of the Building Information Modeling management systems. This course breaks down the process of apply BIM and VDC to various types of construction projects. The objective of this course is to advance the fundamentals of BIM and what was learned in the CBP course into the real world. 


This course is intended for the candidate to put this knowledge and management system to work immediately on their current or in the near future projects. Additionally, we will be utilizing various real projects as case studies in Vietnam as well as the surrounding regions such as Singapore and Malaysia.  Our CBM course supports the candidate to apply the current traditional process and turns it into a much more beneficial BIM management system. 


The overall objective of this course is to arm the candidate with the right tools and knowledge to execute a BIM project in Vietnam or within any other ASEAN nations. We want to equip our candidates with not only practical skills but also a comprehensive understanding of how much BIM can impact their current workflows.
