Omnix offers BIM training to CAD experts
Dubai, December 27, 2011
Omnix International, a leading building information modeling (BIM) solution provider, has launched new BIM-based training services specially designed for UAE’s computer aided design (CAD) industry professionals.
Autodesk, a leading corporation focusing on 3D design software, has designated Omnix as an Autodesk Authorised training Centre (AATC), which will allow the latter to hold training sessions offering the latest productivity features and best practices to make the most of Autodesk's integrated suite of solutions.
According to Omnix senior officials, many of the country’s design firms that are engaged in BIM are still in their early adoption stages, utilizing the 3D based design software for basic tasks like visualization, coordination, drawing extraction and in a few cases, for construction planning.
Understanding the strong potential of BIM across key segments like construction, architecture, engineering and interior design, planning, facilities management, maintenance, etc., industry professionals have called for more trainings, workshops and skills development for this innovative new design solution.
Utilising a BIM solution across today’s growing number of projects can help key in a reduction in design errors, help drive improvements in quality control, productivity and allow for more savings on cost and time, a statement said.
“Reports have shown us that BIM penetration in Middle East countries is moderate, however the level of competency is under developed as compared to Western Europe and the US. This is mainly due to the lack of availability of skilled staff and training centres in the market,” said Dr Jayant M Deshpande, director, CAD Division, Omnix International.
“Looking to address this demand, we have rolled out BIM training services, which can help companies adopt BIM quicker and drive in a faster return on their investments. The purpose behind offering these services is to support companies which are implementing BIM within their organizations and those that are looking to implement BIM, to gain tangible business benefits.”
The newly launched BIM training services is backed by a pool of Omnix Autodesk certified instructors who have more than 10,000 hours of instructional experience and have taught engineers and architects from around the world.
The Omnix training centres will be offering courses on AutoCAD design software like mechanical, civil 3D, Map 3D and BIM suite offerings, which includes Revit Architecture, Structure and MEP; Autodesk 3DS max. The leading company will also act as an authorised examination centre for all Autodesk software and testing centres.
“Availing of these new BIM based training courses will give architects, consultants and design based companies the advantage of offering improved services that can translate to the development and creation of strategic designs, faster implementation with less mistakes and huge savings earned,” Dr Deshpande added.
“Also, earning certification will also add value and recognition by churning out world class high quality designs for a rapidly growing construction industry,” he concluded. – TradeArabia News Service
