Hello All:

 I have been asked to do some one-on-one Revit Training with a principal.  Basically sitting by his side teaching him the software and getting him started on a new project coming in.  With the economy being how it is right now, I don't want to over price this service.  Does anyone have an information on a reasonable hourly charge?  The only numbers I know are what I would ask if I were doing some Revit production services.

 Thanks for any input!  I have to put a proposal in for Friday morning.

Hey,

Some more details would be useful, as in where are you based as i'm in Ireland and the rates here would be different to say France, are you the only person asked to submit a quote. the size of the firm, etc... 

But in my experience this type of decision particularly for a principal  is not made on cost but value for money, so items like a how experienced you are with Revit, how experienced you are at teaching Revit (i guess your not), what exactly he will get out of the training etc...

 

Then you have to decide how much you will work for, so do you have work at the moment, are you trying to get into teaching of Revit, etc..

Sorry I can't give you a figure but  its hard to answer that, but i have charged form $10.00 per hour where i wanted to get my foot in the door to $250.00 per hour when there were tight deadlines working through the night.

Hope this helps.

Thanks for your response.  I actually have over 6.5 years of experience.  I do have a lot of teaching experience but it has always been within a firm that I worked for so I never had to charge out for it.  I have been an intern architect and recently a Revit Manager.  So I have done a lot of first level and advanced training.  It is my understanding (I will meet with them tomorrow morning) that this is to teach the principal the software and then sit with him one-on-one while he begins using it on a project.  I will find out a lot of the specifics when I meet with them and hopefully that will help determine what to charge but it is difficult because there is such a range you can request for this.  I am in Georgia, US and the economy is still pretty slow around here so I hate to ask for too much right now but I also don't want to underestimate my skills and get paid less than I deserve.  If this were a drafting position, I already know what to ask for, but this is a little more complex and I feel a good bit more of a valuable service for them.

Thanks again for your info.  I wish there was that magic answer out there Smile
