Revit Structure Beyond the Basics

After learning the basics, many Revit users never get an opportunity to advance their skills due to the pressures of working in a structural engineering environment. You are probably aware that you could be working smarter, looking at how long it takes you to complete certain modelling tasks. Does this sound like you? Our 1-day Revit Structure Beyond the Basics course is your chance to improve your modelling using a wide range of intermediate skills.
