Our BIM Level 2 training courses relate to the older PAS 1192-2:2013 standard, which has now been superseded by ISO 19650-2:2018.

We would strongly advise doing our ISO 19650-2:2018 Essentials, as this is our most up-to-date training and will also allow you to apply to our newer ISO 19650-2:2018 Certification Scheme for Individuals, however, if you still wish to proceed with BIM Level 2 Training please see our courses below.

Building information modelling (BIM) is transforming construction. Our BIM essentials course is your stepping stone to project success and progress towards BIM Certification.

This comprehensive online training course provides an overview of information management using BIM following the UK BIM Level 2 standard.

Delivered in structured modules, you’ll explore the key terminology used when describing BIM and the activities which form the information management function. Our BIM expert tutor guide you and ensure that on completion you’re equipped and ready to realise the benefits of BIM within your own organisation.
