Thousands of workers each year are retiring from the trades, in fact for every five people who retire only one is trained to replace them. Our country is in a dilemma because we do not have a sufficiently trained workforce to replace them and as the industry is getting older, smaller, the local demands are getting bigger. Let us help you find your new career with our training programs, short-term training opportunities, and partnership with workforce boards, where you can earn a competitive wage while helping to build a better future.

Learn to use Autodesk Revit, a fully parametric architectural 3D design software. By using Autodesk Revit, you will learn to design the same way the professionals do. When you change one view using a parametric program the other views are changed automatically to reflect your change. For example, if a door is deleted in the door schedule, that door is automatically deleted from the floor plan and elevations. This state-of-the-art software, also called Building Information Modeling, truly takes architectural computer design beyond being a high tech pencil. This course teaches you to create a 3-dimensional model of a residence, and print the floor plan and elevations of the building.

Revit Architectural Drafting Intermediate - TIO0381

Prerequisite: Revit Architectural Introduction or equivalent knowledge

Intermediate Revit teaches how to automate creation of schedules and sections by taking advantage of the parametric features. You will learn how Revit's building information model prevents errors in architectural drawings. With Revit it is almost impossible to have a miss-reference detail tag. The course teaches creation and printing of photo realistic renderings of the model, and how to create and print a whole set of drawings.
