BIMcert, the right path for BIM training

BIMcert is a European wide project, funded by The European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme, under the Work Program for Clean, Secure and Efficient Energy, aimed at providing a training and qualification scheme for the skills required to support the implementation of BIM and energy efficiency across the construction supply chain.
The BIMcert project will develop a blended, fully supported suite of Building Information Modelling training curriculum and tools, which will allow geographically dispersed construction project teams to use technology to enhance information exchange and collaboration. The project will have a particular focus on testing the BIM approaches to green and passive building design to contribute to the improvement of energy efficiency.

The program content will be developed in a ‘accessible open’ format that will allow middle managers, blue collar workers and other ‘work tied’ industry personnel to access the training and accreditation in order to increase their BIM skills, utilise these in their work increasing energy efficient construction and improve their skills/employment mobility

Recognising the stakeholders and the key driving force in the BIM implementation, the BIMcert project will utilise the innovative BIMcert Strategy Compass. Information and advice with be collated from the target groups and key industry, technical and academic partners to develop training tools, utilising innovative delivery methods. This informed strategic direction aims to ensure successful delivery of the project’s objectives for all stakeholders. Our consortium core partners represent a mix of industry and academia, from 5 European countries, with expertise in providing BIM solutions, skills and training across the Construction Industry and supply chain.
In effect the project team and partners are a union of professional skills for energy efficiency in construction, and a modern software tool for planning, design and construction follow up (Building Information Modelling), that will enhance the effects of improved knowledge and competence.
