I work with a small firm that needs to have about 12 people trained in Revit (4 Arch, 5 MEP, and 3 Struct).  We are located in Green Bay, WI.  Any suggestions on where or how to get the training we are looking for, I have seen some training stuff online but only for around $1,300 a person.  Maybe a group discount or something?  Help please, thanks!

Hmm... I'm not sure i'd drop a ton of money to give people introductory classes.  Odds are most of the information won't stick.   It's often better to get people training after they're somewhat familiar with how the program operates and is laid out, first. Give them a framework to understand what they're being taught.

 

Do you have a couple people in your office who are somewhat experienced in revit?  It could be a good idea, for the time being, to task them with figuring out best practices, and teaching basic revit skills to other people in the office.  It'll REALLY smooth the transition to this software if you have an expert on board who can answer questions from the other employees.

 

...would that be you, by any chance?

Thanks for the advice.  There is no "expert" in the office.  There are about 5 people that have played with the program and 2 or 3 that are proficient enough to get a small project done.  I agree that it is a good idea to get everyone somewhat familiar with the product before we get further training, however with some people more advanced than others there is only so much that we can teach ourselfs.

I tend to agree with Its.... But so much depends on your personnel.  You need to develop one, better yet two, people that can lead the rest.  We are an office of 40 +/- and we started with a core group of 4 that went to training.  This first group then implemented Revit on some test projects then they became the trainers for the remaining staff with two of those actually becoming the leaders.

 

This process really took a couple of years and our staff is still learning.

That sounds like something that will be more workable than having 12 people train at one time.  I realize that we are behind on the curve so we are trying to play catch-up.  Thank you!

Thanks Coreed, I also agree that sending everyone for 3-4 days of force feed (expensive) training is not time or money well invested. I have been training CAD / BIM for 20+ years. I start all training by having the people go through the fundamental video tutorials at www.CADclips.com .

 

THEN I come in and start the formal training. A WORLD of difference. Night and Day. The REAL keeners need very little training because they studied the videos (which has everything they need to know) on their own time and learned it rapidly. I have had training cancelled more than once because the videos got the core group off the ground and they decided to do the training internally.

 

Have a look, I can make you a deal and we could talk more.
