In this episode of the Smarter Building podcast, we caught up with Dr. Stephen Hamil, Innovation Director at NBS, to gain insights into the future landscape of the construction industry and the upcoming trends in 2024.
WHY CHOOSE SYMETRI AS YOUR AUTODESK TRAINING PROVIDER?
Training is an investment in yourself, your career, and your future. It is a crucial part of personal and professional development that can help you achieve your goals, advance your career, and improve your quality of life. Training can offer many benefits, whether you're looking to learn new skills or stay up to date with the latest trends and technologies.
Symetri is an Autodesk Learning Partner. There are several reasons why you should consider using an Autodesk Learning Provider for your Autodesk training needs:
THE BENEFITS OF AN AUTODESK LEARNING PARTNER
Autodesk Learning Providers are trained and certified experts in their field, with extensive experience in using Autodesk Software. All our trainers are classified as Autodesk Certified Instructors, professionals certified by Autodesk. They have the skills and knowledge necessary to effectively teach others how to use Autodesk software. When you are trained by an Autodesk Certified Trainer, you can be assured that you will receive high-quality training based on the most current industry standards and best practices. Additionally, they have access to the latest training resources and tools provided by Autodesk, which enables them to provide up-to-date and relevant training to their students.
SCHEDULED, PRIVATE AND CUSTOMISED TRAINING OPTIONS
Each organisation has different training requirements, so Symetri offers flexible training options, including in-person, virtual, and on-demand training, to accommodate your busy schedule and learning style. This can be in the form of scheduled courses that take place regularly or with company-specific training; you can pick dates that fit you and your organisation.
You can also complement instructor-led training by investing in Pinnacle Series, the e-Learning platform we support.
If a standard course is inappropriate for you, we can customise the training program to meet your specific needs and goals, whether you're an individual or part of a larger organisation. The content delivered on the course will be designed by your trainer, who will be an expert in your chosen software and can even use your own models and projects on the course. If you are encountering a specific problem on your project, this could be the ideal way to learn by working on a real-life example, making sure that your goals are met.
A RANGE OF TRAINING FACILITIES ACROSS THE UK
Symetri has several training centres up and down the UK. All classrooms are equipped with PCs and projection facilities, ensuring that the environment you learn in is fit for purpose. All PCs have the latest version of the software you need for your course. For more information about where our Training Centres are based, please click here.
For customer-specific training, you can learn on the same version that you are using in your organisation.
This can be delivered at your site if that is preferable for you. There is also the option of using our Mobile Workstations or gaining access to a virtual machine throughout the course. Virtual Machines embrace the power of cloud computing, delivering the software onto any machine with internet access. So, if you do not have enough licences for you to use your own machines when training, this solution is available to you. It could also allow delegates to use machines that are not traditionally powerful enough to run high-end CAD software.
VIRTUAL INSTRUCTOR LED TRAINING (VILT)
Stepping into the virtual classroom can be an interesting experience, with many people selecting this option today. Attending virtual training is more convenient. There is no travelling to a location that you have never been to before and no overnight stays; in fact, anywhere with an internet connection can be used. We wouldn’t recommend learning AutoCAD whilst sitting in a coffee shop, but it is possible.
VILT has a different element to in-person training with real-time chat, polls, and pop quizzes, which brings another way of interacting. Some people will be more comfortable in their own space and are open to asking questions.
Virtual Training is scalable, allowing colleagues from different offices around the country and other regions to attend the same course.
Sustainability is an essential element in our lives and businesses. Therefore, Symetri has decided that all training manuals used for our courses will be delivered in an electronic format offering several benefits.
- Easy storage - E-manuals can be easily stored and accessed on electronic devices like smartphones, tablets, and laptops, making it possible to carry an extensive library wherever you go.
- Enhanced readability - Text size, font style, and background colour can be adjusted to enhance readability, which can be especially useful for individuals with visual impairments.
- Search function - With a built-in search functionality, it is easy to find specific information quickly.
- Environmentally friendly - The most important reason we have made this decision is that E-Manuals are a more environmentally friendly option as they do not require any paper or need to be shipped around the world, reducing both Symetri’s and our customer’s carbon footprint.
