If you are starting with Revit MEP from scratch then this course is designed for you to get you up and running to ease the transition from your current design software so you can become productive using Revit MEP in the shortest possible time frame. Learn the necessary skills for Services modelling, annotation, analysis and basic family creation required for Mechanical / Electrical / Plumbing systems design.  Because the course is on a modular basis we can easily customize the course to taylor for your specific needs or if you just want to cover specific modules as a refresher for existing Revit users.
