Course description

Autodesk Revit Essentials - 3-day Autodesk-authorised live online training course for new users

Online training lets you join a live training course from your place of work or home.

This Autodesk Revit Essentials course provides an ideal starter for Revit for users from any industry and background, by remote attendance. Delegates learn the fundamental concepts of Building Information Modelling (BIM)and using Revit tools for architectural and structural design.

Our three-day programme combines lecture, demonstration and hands-on practice, providing a thorough introduction to the software's features. By the end of the training, delegates will have developed a comprehensive understanding of the techniques needed to design, analyse and visualise high quality buildings with Autodesk Revit from start to finish.

The Armada approach to live online training

You participate in the same course as in-class delegates, and we do everything possible to make your experience as close as possible to actually being in the classroom…

  • Your course is Autodesk-accredited, hosted by an Autodesk Certified Instructor (ACI) with vast experience of using the application professionally.
  • You can see and hear our trainer, the other delegates and our trainer’s screen.
  • Our trainer and the other delegates can see you (via your webcam) and hear you.
  • We’ll post you a printed training guide, and make the course files and resources available for you to download.
  • Your training is hands-on: you’ll practice and carry out exercises throughout.
  • If you're learning to use an application and don’t have access to the software, we’ll send you a link to fully-functional trial software that you can download and install.
  • If you need assistance, you can share your screen with our trainer, and pass control to them.
  • Should you want to send a private message to your trainer, you can do so using chat.
  • You’ll receive an e-certificate confirming successful completion of an Autodesk-accredited course.
  • You’re entitled to 30 days’ email support from your trainer.
