AGC’s Building Information Modeling Education Program (BIM EP) 3rd Edition is designed to educate construction professionals at all experience levels in BIM concepts and processes. The highly interactive virtual program provides instruction via Zoom, and training to prepare construction industry professionals at all levels to take advantage of the benefits of BIM.
After participants complete all four courses in the program, they become eligible to sit for an exam to earn the Certificate of Management - Building Information Modeling (CM-BIM)
These four courses build on each other to combine the latest information on BIM processes and technologies, step-by-step procedures for integrating BIM into the project delivery process, real-life case studies of successful BIM implementation and the practical issues all parties need to understand when using BIM on a construction project.
These classes are offered virtually by AGC of America for Architects, Engineers, Contractors, Suppliers, Owners or others who are interested in earning their CM-BIM credential.
This program is offered by AGC of America beginning on Monday, May 9, 2022 until May 20, 2022.
Courses will be offered online via Zoom platform, webcam required for participation. (Fee includes textbook)
