Civil Engineers Need BIM Too
Everyone knows about BIM. They can define it, they can talk about it and they might even use it. But more than that, do they use their knowledge as leverage to set them apart from their peers as a credential? According to the McGraw-Hill Smart Market Report, there are an impressive amount of BIM users. Autodesk has been watching (and a lot of times creating) this uptick in BIM and realized it was time to create a BIM training and certification that people could use as a differentiator in today's competitive market.

Autodesk is starting their foray into this BIM certification market by aiming at a target audience: roads and highways civil engineers, in a designation they named Autodesk Certified BIM Specialist: Roads & Highways. While civil engineers aren't usually using Revit directly, we thought you, as readers of the Revit Community, would want to know about what Autodesk is offering your kindred spirits if you will, in the design community. And who knows, it could be coming to the architecture community soon. As mentioned in the recording below, Catherine Palmer, senior marketing manager, BIM Leadership, AEC & ENI Industry Marketing, at Autodesk, there is the hope of expanding the certification into other areas other than just the roads and highways segment.

Listen to my conversation with Palmer where she details the program, how the need for it arose, what exactly the training entails and how to achieve certification.

Note: Ascent Publishing is offering the training for the certification. The Autodesk Infrastructure Design Suite 2014: BIM Workflow for Roads and Highways Training Guide is available in hard copy or eBook format for $65.
