Graphisoft BIM Coordinator Program

If you are an existing BIM Coordinator or aspiring to become one, this is a great opportunity to get up-to-date with all the relevant information and best practices around coordinating BIM-enabled projects. Attend an 8-week, fun and interactive online program packed with presentations, advice, and virtual activities. Learn from experienced Graphisoft trainers and former BIM Managers and Coordinators, everything you need to know to navigate through the project design stages in an Archicad-based BIM office; from setting up projects, to ensuring the quality of the model, to collaborating with external consultants. Meet other fellow practitioners virtually and share your experiences of working on BIM projects using Archicad. Pass the tests to earn a globally recognized Graphisoft certificate.

 

Online Delivery Information

The online program will last for 8 weeks, and it will include 7 Learning Paths:

  • Learning Path 1 - The BIM Coordinator's Role
  • Learning Path 2 - Introduction to Standardized Workflows
  • Learning Path 3 - Project Startup Workflows
  • Learning Path 4 - Data Production Workflows
  • Learning Path 5 - Project Development: Challenges and Deliverables
  • Learning Path 6 - Quality Assurance Workflows
  • Learning Path 7 - Project Coordination Workflows

Each Learning Path will include 2 or more courses, categorized as foundation, advanced or expert levels.

Each Learning Path will be comprised of live meetings with the trainers. Some Learning Path will also include presentations from guest speakers, who will share their experience of using Archicad on BIM-enabled projects from various aspects. Several types of resources (such as handouts, which elaborate on what was discussed during the live meetings, Archicad files, etc), will be available for download to attendees to study at their own pace.

For attendees who will not be able to attend the live meetings, recordings will be made available, to watch at a later time.

In total, attendees are expected to dedicate 6 hours each week to attending the live meetings. An extra 3-4 hour engagement per week will be required for the completion of quizzes, exercises and studies.

At the end of each Learning Path, there will be a theoretical or practical assessment. Each Learning Path will grant from 50 to 170 points. The overall result of the quizzes/exercises will be considered for the certification. Participants will require at least 800 points to pass the BIM Coordinator Program. Successful candidates will be awarded the Archicad BIM Coordinator Certificate which will be valid for 2 years.
