WE’LL DISCUSS:

  • The advantages of online, on-demand BIM training
  • Why BIM Training is essential for effective project execution
  • The most effective ways to provide project-specific training and onboarding to the supply chain
  • How to flip your training from an expense with project downtime to a productivity tool that can be billed and recouped as a project cost
