Who’s it for?

The Revit MEP Essentials course is designed for those who have used Revit Architecture and want a comprehensive overview of how the program functions and how they can better use it in their given industries.

Revit MEPThis course is advantageous for Mechanical, Electrical and Plumbing based companies. Also, users who are trying to develop their skills further.

We have designed the course in way to cover all the major tools and systems in Revit, as well as common pitfalls or issues students may face. The goal is to create a solid foundation from which students can build upon.

It is required to have prior knowledge of Revit Architecture, to be able to benefit from this course.4


Revit MEP Essentials online training will cover the user interface and the basic HVAC, electrical, and piping/plumbing components of Revit MEP.

It is a detailed course which delves into the deeper side of these categories and gives an in-depth view on how to create the components and model them correctly within Revit.

This course gives a great insight into how to correctly start an MEP model using Central model and worksets and shows how wok through the entire lifecycle of a model.

Revit MEP CourseTime is spent to properly explain the rationale behind why we may use certain tools, the benefits and disadvantages of certain techniques, and the various ways we can achieve our deliverable within Revit.

Our groups are less than 5 which means each student gets total focus and attention from the instructor and allows for a strong two-way dialogue between the instructor and students.
