Building Information Modeling (BIM) Education Program

Successfully implement BIM on your construction projects

Building Information Modeling (BIM) is changing the way projects are constructed. 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. The highly interactive AGC BIM Education Program course provides 32-hours of instruction and training to get construction industry professionals at all levels ready to take advantage of the benefits of BIM. The CM-BIM is the construction industry’s only credential that teaches the practical application of the Building Information Modeling process for commercial construction firms.

Program Details: 

The BIM Education Program is made up of the following 4 units that can be taken in its entirety or as individual units: 

Unit 1: An Introduction to Building Information Modeling
Unit 2: BIM Technology
Unit 3: BIM Project Execution Planning
Unit 4: BIM Adoption, Implementation and ROI

Following successful completion of the entire four-unit program, attendees are eligible to sit for the AGC of America Certificate of Management—Building Information Modeling (CM-BIM) exam. This exam is offered at Master Builders of Iowa in Des Moines.
