Details :

Building Information Management (BIM), utilises information-rich models through collaborative working processes, in order to improve the quality of information provided at the design and construction phases to save costs by eliminating waste. The UK Government’s strategy sets out the requirement that projects must use BIM Level 2 from April 2016.

This BIM Level 2 Fundamentals examination will enable you to demonstrate your knowledge and understanding of BIM to existing and future employers, including how BIM can save organisations money and time in the design, construction and operation of buildings and infrastructure.

Upon successful completion of the BIM Level 2 Fundamentals exam, you will be eligible to undertake the BRE Academy BIM Training Stage 2 - BIM PIM TIM. This can be taken as either a training course or for those already with the additional knowledge required, can take the exam only route. The extent of the documents covered by the exam is available from the BRE About BIM Web site where the specific BIM Level 2 Documents and Standards can be downloaded.

Please note: If you fail to pass the exam in three attempts, you will be required to attend the full training course and examination.
