The role of a BIM Technician is key within the context of a BIM project. BIM technicians are highly skilled individuals who provide technological support on BIM projects, drive processes within the context of a project and remain up to speed on all the latest technological developments to help ensure all deliverables are achieved.
This course focuses on the requirements and skills needed to qualify for the title of BIM technician. You will be guided through all terminology and technical language, understand the tools to demonstrate your knowledge of how technology affects the whole lifecycle of a project, and gain the confidence to suggest new workflow, technology or process solutions to aid in project delivery. You will also be shown key communication techniques that can be used to support the wider BIM team.
In summary, this training will align you to the skills necessary to act as a BIM technician, and demonstrate to clients and colleagues new and innovative approaches toward capturing, delivering, managing and sharing information within the context of a BIM project.
You must have at least one of the following:
- A degree or qualification in a construction related profession
- 3-5 years of experience working within the context of BIM regardless of the size or nature of the organisations you may have worked for
- Practical experience of BIM in your chosen field
By the end of the course, you will be able to:
- Discuss the key terms which relate to BIM and how implementation of BIM can support the greater benefits of a project
- Demonstrate knowledge of the technical terms, acronyms and applications used in the Construction Industry to support BIM related processes
- Adequately understand key exchange formats and the creation and sharing of both graphical and non-graphical information on a project
- Demonstrate familiarity with the Standard Methods and procedures as outlined within BS1192:2007 + A2:2016

Rebecca lived in the UK for almost 10 years and following a series of successful senior roles in varied architectural organizations, Rebecca now manages her own consultancy, Digital Node, providing advice and insight to construction professionals globally on advanced digital solutions on projects as well as implementation and management processes. It is with this knowledge that she is able to communicate, train and manage teams in a BIM environment as well as ensure her knowledge is spread throughout the industry within education and non for profit groups.
Rebecca supports Building Smart globally, sits on the Autodesk Developer Network and Expert Elite groups and works with the UK BIM Alliance and BIM Regions to help industry upskill. She is a strong advocate for diversity (Chair of Women in BIM) and works with higher education by tutoring and lecturing both undergraduate and postgraduate students in BIM and Construction Management. Rebecca is also a fellow of the CIOB and offers support and training to the likes of BSI, CIOB and other institutions in the BIM space. Her interest in training and upskilling also involved a strong social media presence for herself (@becdecicco), her organization (@digital_node) and finally her diversity group (@WomeninBIM).
