Whether you are a prime contractor using BIM across an entire project or a subcontractor impacted by a specific BIM implementation, this emerging practice requires new mindsets and technological know-how in order to achieve significant improvements in efficiency and cost control. Associated General Contractors of America’s (AGC) BIM Education Program - developed in conjunction with leading BIM practitioners, technology firms and educators - is designed to prepare construction professionals at all experience levels to successfully implement BIM on a construction project. Each BIM Education Program unit provides a full day of training for a total of 32 hours. The Certificate of Management - Building Information Modeling (CM-BIM) is the construction industry’s only credential that teaches the practical application of the BIM process for commercial construction firms.
