The RICS BIM Project Management Certificate


RICS have developed the BIM Project Management Certificate providing the knowledge and skills required to manage each step of a BIM project

The BIM project manager plays a crucial role in advising clients, internal and external stakeholders on the benefits of BIM, and in implementing and managing the major BIM processes.

This requires the demonstration of a complete knowledge of the BIM process & the ability to create the project environment in which BIM can realise its full potential.

Through our interactive training programme, you will cover the entire BIM project by following a simulated BIM project through its lifecycle. You will be guided through each of the major project stages, from the strategic definition of the project right through to handover, operations and end of use. At each stage, the trainer will demonstrate how to balance technical requirements with project management skills, so you are confident in implementing BIM methodology.

By the end of the course, you will have embedded the practical tools and methods required at each stage of the BIM project process; and will have the ability to successfully manage your own or client’s BIM project.
