AIA Revit Essentials training classes for small architectural firms #AIA #Revit #BIM

There's a little something I've been having my company do that I wanted to share with you. Considering that I have readers far and wide across the US and the world, hopefully you can share this with your local AIA chapter or architectural community.

Basically, we've created a CAD Coop where small firms (5 users or less) or sole proprietors can form a group for shared training. The more people you can put together as individuals, the less it costs each person. What's really nice about this is that we can do it as a live webcast, so you don't even all need to be in the same location. If you'd like to participate in the class below or take a class in Revit Architecture Essentials, Revit Structure Essentials, Revit MEP Essentials, Navisworks, or any advanced or custom class in any of those products, send an email to revit3d+cadcoop@gmail.com. All of our classes are available via live webcast, so if you don't live in a big city, aren't happy with your reseller's tech support or just want some of the best BIM training in the country, don't be shy. Oh yeah, we have a full line of classes for GCs, subcontractors and engineers as well.

Can you imagine what small firms can do if you put your heads together and compete against those large firms with all of their resources and fancy conference rooms. With your lower overhead and Revit, you can really create some great teams.
