Virtual Project is an intensive and immersive experience designed to allow participants to gain practical knowledge in BIM software and management processes in a real time collaborative environment.  Key BIM concepts and ISO19650 (formerly BIM Level 2) processes are explained and demonstrated, with none of the risks or costs that arise from experimenting on a live project.  The course is based on a real world project and utilises real information sources to provide a practical and transferable experience.

Virtual Project is not just another software training course and with the support of experienced trainers and excellent training material, participants will get an appreciation of a well managed integrated project workflow plus hands on experience using some of the latest and most popular software to support BIM processes.  This engaging course offers a real opportunity to experience multi disciplinary project working which is the very essence of the BIM ethos.
