Revit Architecture Beyond the Basics

After learning the basics, many Revit users never get an opportunity to advance their skills due to the pressures of working in an architectural firm. And you are probably aware that you could be working smarter by how long it takes you to complete certain modelling tasks, compared to others. Does this sound like you? Our 2-day Revit Architecture Beyond the Basics course is your chance to improve your modelling using a wide range of intermediate skills.
