Revit MEP training course

MEP (mechanical, electrical, and plumbing) design is one of the major components of the BIM chain—and Revit is the design tool of choice for many MEP engineers. This Revit MEP training course focuses on the MEP features of Revit 2019, the latest version of the software.

You can dive into a specific trade, or take the entire course to learn about all aspects of the vast Revit MEP ecosystem. Upon completion, you’ll know how to create basic floor plans, design electric circuits and lighting systems, model air intake and exhaust systems, create plumbing plans, and design fire alarm and sprinkler systems, and document your designs for construction and fabrication.

The development in Dubai continues to grow at a very high pace. A lot of complex buildings, automobiles and many other high tech machines are being created. This opens a great door for a lot of engineering industries in Dubai. Therefore, the study and use of Revit MEP helps in the production of advanced quality designs, by enhancing the working ability of engineers who put them into use.VIVID provides you with nothing but the best computer training. We have a team of software professionals, who are ready to impact quality knowledge on you.
