Course description

Autodesk Revit Essentials - 3-day Autodesk-authorised Live Online Training course for new users. Online training lets you join a live training course from your place of work or home.

This Autodesk Revit Essentials course provides an ideal starter for Revit for users from any industry and background, by remote attendance. Delegates learn the fundamental concepts of Building Information Modelling (BIM)and using Revit tools for architectural and structural design.

Our three-day programme combines lecture, demonstration and hands-on practice, providing a thorough introduction to the software's features. By the end of the training, delegates will have developed a comprehensive understanding of the techniques needed to design, analyse and visualise high quality buildings with Autodesk Revit from start to finish.

Our approach to Online training

When you attend Live Online Training with Armada, you’re participating in a real course, hosted by a real trainer, in real time.

You can:

  • See and hear our trainer and other virtual delegates participating in the training.
  • Allow our trainer and the other virtual delegates to see and hear you (if you have a webcam, and you’re agreeable).
  • Interact by speaking, using chat, or raising your ‘virtual hand’ if you need assistance.
  • Share your screen with our trainer to show them what you’re seeing.

Your experience will be as close as is possible to actually being in the classroom…

  • The training will follow the same syllabus, and will be hosted by the same Autodesk Certified Instructors (ACIs), as our classroom-based courses.
  • We’ll post you a training guide, and send you all the information you need to participate in the training. We’ll even post you a headset and microphone if you need one.
  • You’ll carry out exercises using the software you’re being trained in, assisted by our trainer. If you don’t have access to the software, we’ll send you a link to fully-functional trial software that you can download and install.
  • You'll receive an e-certificate directly from Autodesk confirming successful completion of an accredited course. Click here to see a sample of the certificate you receive.
  • You’ll be entitled to 30 days’ email support from your trainer.

This is an Autodesk-authorised course, run by an Autodesk Certified Instructor (ACI)
Self-funding delegates can pay interest-free over twelve months.   

Suitability - Who should attend?
