Speaking at an IBC and buildingSMART Canada BIM symposium late last month, Global eTraining’s CEO Susan Brattberg made the confident statement in regards to the positive impact BIM is having on the AEC industry.
“Anything from software, workflows, project management, building code, safety, there is so much that goes into BIM, which can be customized with companies, or project specific workflows, naming, processes and onboarding information,” said Brattberg.
“Global eTraining has effectively become the world leading technical BIM training platform, where companies can leverage the content we already have for BIM.”
Global eTraining offer an online and on-demand Autodesk training platform that “works just as well or better than traditional training”. Products that customers can be trained in include Autodesk 3DS Max, Autodesk AutoCAD and Autodesk Revit amongst others.
“The reason it works so well is that it is written in a very interactive way, where people can learn and apply skills simultaneously,” elaborated Brattberg.
For those who are yet to adopt BIM, Brattberg thinks that implementing the process into your business should not be viewed as a cost, but as an investment.
“The actual cost is probably less significant than they [businesses] are expecting. It’s not a cost. It’s a true investment that they will get a return on.”
