AGC BIM Certification Classes now available in South East US/ Florida (CM-BIM)

I'm proud to announce that my company, ACAI Associates, Inc. is the Southeast United States education provider for the AGC BIM Certification Credential,

Certificate of Management—Building Information Modeling (CM-BIM).

This credential will end up being more important than the LEED AP credential as more owners are requiring BIM and you're going to have to show the capabilities of your team and prove that they have the knowledge and skill set to really do a BIM project.

The next class is January 27th for Unit 1. If you want more information, please send an email to BIMCMclass@bimbuilder.com. You can take the classes in any order. We can also do special private group classes for your company. If you're not in sunny South Florida, consider getting away from the cold weather and getting this critical credential while you thaw out. We could create a special week long class for your group.


The Certificate of Management—Building Information Modeling (CM-BIM) is the construction industry’s first and only BIM assessment-based certificate program that teaches the practical application of the building information modeling process for commercial construction firms and others.

Not just a tech certificate for BIM software and applications, AGC’s CM-BIMprogram combines the latest information on BIM processes and technologies, step–by–step procedures for integrating BIM into the project delivery process, real-life case studies of successful BIM implementations, and the practical issues all parties need to understand when utilizing BIM on a construction project.

Based on AGC’s BIM Education Program, a CM-BIM can be achieved bycompleting all four courses in the BIM Education Program successfully and by passing the CM-BIM Test assessment.

Our bSa Chapter is proud to offer AGC BIM Classes.

The AGC Certificate of Management-Building Information Modeling (CM-BIM) is an assessment-based certificate credential that denotes knowledge and understanding of concepts related to BIM adoption, practice and process transformation outlined in the AGC BIM Education Program. Successful candidates will carry the CM-BIM designation.

Prepare for the credential now by attending the four BIM Education Program courses at a location near you!

Classes are currently be offered on the following dates and are held at ACAI's Corporate Office at 2937 W. Cypress Creek Road, Fort Lauderdale. All Classes are held from 8:00am-5:00pm and fees do apply. Private / Group classes are availble. Email cbaldwin@acaiworld.com for more information or an application.

BIM is leading the way to a fundamental paradigm shift for the entire AEC industry. The ultimate goals arestill the same-successful projects completed on time, on budget and with no claims. To consistently achieve these goals, it is necessary to work in a collaborative environment. The tools and processes of BIM offer just such a collaborative approach. BIM Technology presents a solid process for selecting BIM tools. The course explores the major applications and classes of tools across project phases including QTO, shop drawing andfabrication, construction scheduling, estimating, scheduling, and coordinating. The goal of the BIM Technology course is to help participants become BIM champions within their organizations. The BIM Technology course is designed as a highly participatory, team-oriented event that balances group discussion and team assignments in an instructor-led format.

Unit 3: Contract Negotiations & Risk Allocation
