Hey, how are you?

I'm an architect and I use BIM (Revit Architecture) for 7 years. There have been 3 years since my Architecture graduation. In my last job, during 3 years, I have modeled a whole airport terminal all by myself, with really complex parametric families. I used 3D laser scanning (point clouds) and did an as-built of the whole terminal so I could use it for Airport Operations (Facility Management) purpose. So, I'm pretty intimated with Revit tools and Autodesk softwares (A360, collaboration for revit, navisworks etc.)

I would like to do a BIM course that distinguish my work in BIM area. I live in Brazil now and I'm thinking about going to study in Canada or Europe for maybe 1 year or less. And since I'm not working in the moment, I would accept any good job oportunity that appear while I'm there. Do you guys know any recognized university/course which I could apply for? As I said before, I don't need to learn how to use Revit or how BIM works, I need something new. I saw something about a BIM Manager certification by RICS. But I don't know if that would distinguish me in my profession.

Firstly I wish you luck in your job searching, I hope you find new employment soon. I would expect if you know Revit and go model fast you will be a great asset for any company.I've been a BIM Manager for 7-8 years now and used Revit for 7 years before that. I moved towards BIM Management as the bureaucracy of project work was driving me up the wall. As a BIM Manager now I am invested about 80% of my time in project work and 20% in BIM Management work. My project work is mostly office based and any meeting I am involved in typically is associated with BIM related matters rather than project related matters. The time spent as a BIM Manager includes auditing project models, training staff, BIM R & D to discover new ways of working and new addins that can speed up project BIM work, creating new BIM content for the project library, writing help guides/office standards and writing BIM related responses to new job invitations. A BIM Manager needs to know the industry standards inside and out, so for me in the UK, I need to know the PAS 1192 documents.Why I am telling you this, is to ensure you know what a BIM Manager does before you make that career move. If you want to be the project designers and want to walk around building sites to check construction is correct, you will likely not do this being a BIM Manager.I never did a course to become a BIM Manager, I simply evolved into that role being the smartest BIM user in the office. Maybe you could do this to0, but I hate to say it, you need ongoing practical BIM experience. So getting back into the saddle and finding a BIM job I think is your best bet. Having Revit knowledge puts you ahead of many workplace users, who have little time betweeb project work to learn BIM, so use this to your advantage.The RICS courses are good but I can't say from experience what their BIM Manager course is like.Good luck with the Job hunt and thanks for all of your BIM
