Revit Structure - Advanced

This courseware covers a wide range of advanced topics in Revit® Structure, continuing to build on the concepts introduced in the Revit Structure Fundamentals course. Students learn about detailing and detail components, rebar, families, analytical analysis, and collaborating on a design with other professionals.


On completion of this course students will have been given the opportunity to acquire knowledge and understanding of commands and concepts that develop the skills necessary to demonstrate competency in:

• Using the Basic / Advanced Drawing and Editing Tools
• Working with Revit Components (System & Standalone)
• Working with Rebar
• Working with Parts
• Working with Global Parameters
• Conducting Analytical Processes
• Multi-User Work-sharing
• Collaborating on Design with Other Professionals
• Adapting QA process
• Importing & Exporting Data – IFC & NWC
• Working with API – Ideate Software

Who should attend and Course Prerequisites

This course is designed for experienced users of Revit Structure.
Students are expected to have:
• a sound level of computer literacy
• completed Revit Structure Fundamentals (or Equivalent)
• a sound working knowledge and understanding of Structural Design and Drafting
• an understanding of Architectural/Structural documentation requirements


An A2K Technologies “Certificate of Attendance” will be issued on completion of the course.
