The BIM Academy Africa will be running its last BIM course for the year in Johannesburg at the Oracle offices on the 3rd September. Please contact us directly to inquire for bespoke courses running in 2019.



This all-in-one One Day BIM course for leadership is an intensive workshop specifically designed to give company staff and managers the A-Z of BIM without the software involved. BIM is not software….its a process!

While getting to grips with understanding the models, processes and delivery methods required to make a true and lasting impact with their BIM careers.

The BIM 4 leaders multidisciplinary course in an intense One day workshop using best practice collaborative BIM processes and technologies.

The course is intended for senior and middle management of client, design, construction and FM organisations and will improve their understanding of how to plan the implementation of a BIM process for the benefit of a project. The BIM process requires the interaction and collaboration of architects, engineers, planners, surveyors, contractors and suppliers throughout the project delivery cycle. This process needs to be planned, resourced and managed.

The course allows delegates from different backgrounds and skill levels to experience BIM tools and processes in a supervised collaborative work role environment based upon a realistic project.

The processes adopted will be aligned to UK industry best practice, and incorporate the ISO  19650 standards.

The course will run from 07.00 – 17.00 each with three breaks per day for refreshments and lunch.
