Event Information

Now that the UK Government have announced their strategy to make BIM mandatory on public projects by 2016, the urgency for architects in Ireland to embrace this process and technology has increased, to remain relevant and competitive in the global market. The productivity efficiencies of working in BIM will help provide architects with an opportunity to reduce their production overheads, and deliver better quality information, allowing them to remain competitive and profitable in these difficult times.

In support of the RIAI’s effort to raise the awareness of BIM, and to help RIAI members to build their BIM capabilities, the RIAI have negotiated with four of the main BIM software vendors to offer a substantial reduction on the cost of BIM training for RIAI members. A number of Revit Architecture Essentials, ArchiCAD and Vectorworks training centres around the country are now offering a limited number of training places at a reduced and consistent rate of €300/person for a 2 or 3-day BIM training course (duration differs depending on the software package) between now and the end of December 2011. Thanks to the generosity of the training centres this reduction represents a saving of between 50% and 66% of the standard training cost. 

Attendees at these courses can claim between 12 and 18 Structured CPD points, depending on the training selected. A certificate of attendance will be provided by the training centre which can be uploaded as evidence to RIAI CPDEngage.

This offer is subject to the following conditions:

• To keep course costs low, training materials will be provided to participants to use during the course days, with the option to purchase materials to take away if they wish, but this is not a requirement.

• Only refreshments (coffee/tea/water) will be provided during the training session. Participants will be required to make their own arrangements for lunch.

• This offer is provided on the basis that classes of at least 6 people are filled, so dates may be re-arranged to accommodate this.

NOTE: The training is not provided by the RIAI and the trainers on these courses are not accredited by the RIAI. The RIAI is not responsible for the content or delivery of external courses, websites, information, booking or payment.
