ABOUT US

We are a National Training Provider offering a variety of Apprenticeship Programmes including Design & Draughting, Digital Construction/Engineering, Construction Professional/Technical & Project Control. We also offer a number of short courses, evening courses and NVQ only training at our training suite in Barnsley or on site/in the workplace. All our training is aimed at the Architectural, Engineering & Construction sectors and is delivered by our team of industry experts.We needed to address the significant lack of formal/specialist training in the construction industry for engineers and technicians. Therefore, we have developed various intensive fast track programmes along with high quality training and assessment methods to deliver apprentices into the workplace with the skills, knowledge and understanding required of their job role. We have built upon the experience of our founding companies and directors to build programmes that bring value to your business and are tailored to meet the needs of the learners and the employers. Our aim is to bridge the gap between young talent and experience to deliver apprentices into the workplace ready to deliver whilst educating and inspiring them to succeed in this industry. We are a private training provider with the flexibility to offer bespoke training and development to meet your business’s need.

DIGITAL ENGINEERING APPRENTICESHIP

SUITABLE FOR: LEARNING OUTCOME QUALIFICATION AND TRAINING SUITABLE FOR:

Digital Engineering/Construction Technician, CAD Technician, Reinforcement Engineer, Architectural Technicians, Design Assistant, Structural Engineering Technician, BIM Technician or Draughtsperson, Surveyors or Site Engineers

LEARNING OUTCOME

The conclusion of Digital Construction/Engineering Fundamentals will leave the Learner with knowledge of BIM and the type of data that can be contained within a BIM model and its use throughout the project lifecycle. It will provide hands on training so that the learner can create a BIM model and manipulate, review and manage external models.Learners will also develop an understanding of design control and workflows including a practical workshop showing how this will be managed using BIM tools to appropriate Standards.

QUALIFICATION AND TRAINING
  • Introduction to BIM
  • BIM Stages, COBie, BIM RIBA, PAS1192, BIM Protocol
  • Roles and responsibilities
  • Common data environment
  • Introduction to Revit

This course is aimed at new users of AutoCAD or AutoCAD LT. It is taught at beginner’s level therefore no previous knowledge of AutoCAD is required. However, attendees should possess basic PC knowledge. Prior knowledge of draughting would be an advantage but not essential. Course content can be tailored to the needs and level of each group or organisation.

LEARNING OUTLINE
  • Launch and Configure AutoCAD
  • Navigate AutoCAD
  • Understand the Ribbon Interface, Shortcut Keys and Function Keys
  • Object Snaps and Object Tracking
  • Basic Drawing Creation – Lines, Arcs, Shapes, Details, Hatching
  • Basic object editing
  • Object Annotation – Text and Dimensions
  • 1st and 3rd Angle Projection
  • Basic Drawing Production Including Plans, Elevations and Sections
  • Introduction to 3D Cad
COST

SUITABLE FOR: LEARNING OUTLINE COST SUITABLE FOR:

To be able to read reinforcement and design intent against Standards such as the Standard Method of Detailing Structural Concrete.Determine the most suitable method of detailing to given constraints such as site restrictions and construction programme and produce reinforcement details and bar bending schedules to align to these constraints. Basic CAD experience would be an advantage.

LEARNING OUTLINE
  • What is Reinforced Concrete
  • Basic Design Principles
  • Documentation and Principles – Standard Method of Detailing Structural Concrete, BS 8666:2005 & EC2
  • The role of a detailer: Drawing production/Bar Bending Schedule production
