Revit Standards and Management

Revit templates and standards are worth their weight in gold. As you learn how to use Revit’s tools effectively, you can build those efficiencies into your template file. These efficiencies then translate to time savings on the delivery of every subsequent project for every user. This is perhaps the most strategic of all our Revit courses. If you need to understand the process of deciding how to develop a Revit standard to suit your company and then create a template to reflect those standards, this 1-day Revit Standards and Management course is for you.
