Paradigm Education has announced a new blended learning course for Revit Architecture. The aim of the course is to provide a professional level of training in Revit Architecture while minimizing the cost and downtime to attendees.
To achieve this, the company has introduced a Blended Learning course which comprises both classroom delivery and e-learning thus combining the advantages of both: less downtime and cheaper traditional training courses but with a higher level of interaction and structure than e-learning courses.
The course is also designed to be modular. Combining blended learning with a modular approach enables the maximum flexibility and efficiency in terms of cost, quality and content delivery. Students attend only the modules that are required to match their training needs. Power users will normally want to complete all modules and gain a qualification, whereas those whose involvement in BIM is more peripheral or managerial may only want to complete certain modules.
By using a combination of modular units, combining classroom delivery and online tutorials, feedback and assignments, Paradigm Education offers a unique learning experience, which puts YOU in the driver’s seat and minimises disruption to your workflow (and your pocket!). The course is the equivalent of 8 days classroom training, which ensures that topics are covered in depth and at a pace which enables you to fully absorb the content.
The course assumes no previous knowledge of Revit Architecture and takes students through both the Essentials of Revit and more advanced features, culminating in the Autodesk Revit Architecture Professional Certification. You can decide the most appropriate level for yourself and join/leave the course as you wish.
The course is split into 5 modules. Each module comprises 1 day’s classroom training and also includes on-line tutorials, exercises, structured tutor interaction, student forums, on-line quizzes etc. The online delivery is based on Moodle, a world leading Learning Management System (LMS) used in many third level colleges around the World. Students receive their own workspace, with their own password and can continue to receive on-line support for 30 days after the conclusion of each course module.
The modules are as follows:
Module 1: Introduction to Revit Architecture
Module 2: System Family Creation and Manipulation - Wall, Floor, Ceiling, Roof Elements
Module 3: Developing the Building Model – Loadable Components and Stairs, Railings, Ramps
Module 4: Drafting & Documentation – 2D Detailing, Scheduling, Sheet Sets
Module 5: Revit Architecture Professional Certification Exam Preparation & sitting
Additional minor Topics include Collaboration, Phasing, Massing and Family Creation.
