About the Author

Russ Nicloy is a Civil Solutions Specialist at MACER Technologies, Inc. Russ worked in a production role for 10 years, including time in GIS mapping of utilities, engineering drafting, and surveying. During that time, Russ saw the project lifecycle from several different angles, which helped build perspective and understanding. 

Russ has recently worked as a Civil Solution Specialist as an Autodesk reseller which introduced him to the various methods other firms took to the product lifecycle. This is when Russ began to teach as well as support users in their use of software for their workflow. Soon after that Russ began supporting a state department of transportation and became deeply involved in the transportation consultant process. Russ now runs his own business, offering drafting services and custom part creation, which is getting back to his production roots.

Navigation Strategies

eTraining Course Navigation Strategies:

Beginners: Complete the course in order from beginning to end. Once any topic is completed, you will have full access to it at any time for one year after registration, to use as a resource.

Intermediate/Advanced Users: Use the course as a flexible resource tool to find what you need, whenever you need it. Try the assessment tests first, if you get 70%+ you can move to the next level, if you get less than 70% you should complete the lecture. This gives you a pre and post assessment score, which can be used to track your skills improvement.

You do not need any previous experience with Autodesk Revit to take this course; however, it does assume a reasonable level of experience with other Autodesk software and with the Windows operating system.
