The project manager has a critical role when advising clients, internal and external stakeholders about the benefits of BIM – how, when and where BIM can contribute to the project outcomes and then have the skills and knowledge to manage the project. The BIM manager is required to understand the BIM process and create the project environment in which BIM can work effectively: they set the outcomes and process and requirements across the teams.

This certificate will cover the entire BIM project lifecycle and provide you with detailed knowledge and the skills required in order to manage each step of the project. You will see how BIM has been implemented in real world scenarios and gain an understanding of the latest guidance and legislation, including PAS 1192-5, PAS 1192-6 and GDPR.

Furthermore, by working through a simulated BIM project you will embed practical learning at every stage of the BIM process. Ultimately, you will be able to implement a smoother collaboration between your project stakeholders, improve control of project data and reduce the risks of conflicts, delays and added project costs.
