CLEARWATER, FLORIDA, USA — Axiom, one of the world’s most experienced developers of time-saving CAD software products and training, announces the release of Revit Architecture 2012 Essentials Beginner Library. With many companies experiencing reduced training budgets, there is an increasing demand for Revit training courses that are affordable, effective and convenient. By training at their own desk, on a schedule and pace that fits the needs of CAD managers and users, LearningBay makes the task of training far more convenient and with less expense. According to LearningBay’s users, LearningBay courses are effective in getting users up to speed fast.
This new release, the first in a series of libraries for Revit, contains 12 browser-based courses with a total of 573 videos providing easy-to-follow, step-by-step instructions on how to use Revit. While this series of Revit training courses is suitable for beginners, the courses can also be used by experienced Revit users to fill in any gaps of knowledge they may have. As all of the courses are searchable, this also makes an excellent reference guide allowing users to quickly find information on how to use a specific Revit function or tool.
The training is considerably more affordable than sending users out for training and can be delivered whenever most convenient. This “always on” training means it can be accessed as often as users like, for training, review or refresher whenever it’s needed. “With no travel costs, no instructor costs, no waiting and no scheduling to worry about, this training makes Revit users billable faster and at a reduced cost,” says Mike Arroyo, Axiom’s world-renowned CAD-training evangelist.
Each of the courses is broken down into easily assimilable sections, allowing users to spend as little as 30 minutes a day on study. The courses cover topics such as learning how to:
- Use templates, define grids, create levels and generate sheets.
- Work with interior layout tools.
- Create and modify slabs with details on using other tools, such as Offset, Trim and Align.
- Load Revit families (such as columns, piers and footings), create floor plans and adjust the view range.
- Orient a view and work with 3D views.
The courses also cover, in depth, essential topics such as building information modeling (BIM), using visualization tools and working with title blocks.
This new set of on-line courses uses LearningBay’s Professional Development Hours (also known as Continuing Education Hours) format, allowing users to count study time toward their professional license renewal (in states where permitted). Each course comes with the following:
- Videos covering the materials of the course.
- Step-by-step labs and sample files, allowing students to practice on actual drawing files.
- Instructor Notes, where the instructor expresses insights or has tips relating to the lesson pages.
- A course syllabus, complete with a course description, course objectives, a list of topics and a course completion plan.
- Student worksheets to make it easy to document student progress.
As an online solution, LearningBay is affordable, easy to use and can be quickly implemented in virtually any office with an Internet connection. (Companies can also host learning content themselves, host the content on a dedicated server managed by Axiom or purchase the learning content on CDs or DVDs.)
CAD Managers can create new courses by combining Axiom’s courseware with customized information that can come from a variety of sources such as Word documents, web pages, videos and other sources or by customizing existing courses. Because Axiom’s courses are broken up into discrete units, CAD managers can easily modify these units to include proprietary knowledge and procedures.
All courses include videos, labs, worksheets and a course syllabus and are backed by Axiom’s support team.
