Revit for Project Managers

Revit software is a powerful Building Information Modelling (BIM) program that works the way architects and engineers think. It streamlines the design process with a central 3D model. Changes made in one view update across all views and on the printable sheets. This Revit for Project Managers course is your opportunity to understand the impact of Revit on your role. The game has changed!
