From Zero to Revit Hero

Revit offers many advantages over traditional CAD for architectural design. However, those benefits are only available to those who understand how to use the software effectively. And although Revit is a different way of working, learning it does not have to be difficult. For a complete set of project skills, you will need more than a 2-day basic course. We have combined these skills – essentials, concept design, and collaboration – into a 5-day Revit training “boot camp”. If you need to hit the ground at a full sprint on your first Revit project, our From Zero to Revit Hero course is for you.

Course content for From Zero to Revit Hero:


Days 1 & 2: Revit Architectural Essentials

  • The power of Revit – dimension an entire wall in just 2 clicks
  • Use copy, align, move, mirror, trim, offset, fillet and split tools
  • Discussion of Revit modelling techniques – pros and cons
  • Create your own wall type to see how Revit works
  • Read more on our Revit Architecture Essentials outline

Days 3 & 4: Revit Architecture Beyond the Basics
