If you’re considering becoming a BIM technician, you might be surprised to know the benefits of completing your training online rather than taking an in-person course. As experts in a range of BIM software, concepts and processes, BIM technicians work to create technical drawings of concepts and designs on BIM platforms. Working with professionals such as project managers, engineers, architects and designers, BIM technicians support the building lifecycle of a range of projects. Their skills enable them to use BIM technologies to produce intelligent simulations and designs which are then utilized during the construction process, resulting in greater efficiency and cost effectiveness. 

If you’re seeking a career in the BIM industry, you can become a certified BIM technician by completing an online training program at the Digital School. The moment when you discover the benefits of training online as a BIM technician, you’ll be ready to begin your journey to a rewarding and hands-on career in Building Information Modeling.

Students Have Many Online BIM Training Options

When completing their BIM training online, students aren’t bound to the traditional structure imposed by an in-person course. Thus, online training gives students a greater amount of flexibility when it comes to building the skills to become a certified BIM technician. At the Digital School, students benefit from flexible start dates, enabling them to start their transformative career journey at any point. What’s more, students have the ability to select the learning style that works for them, choosing between part-time learning, where they’ll complete the program in 12 months, or full-time learning, which allows them to complete the project in just six months.
