As part of our 'Links to Learning' development, we have been working closely with the team at White Frog Publishing, to write new assessment content for Revit, across the 3 core disciplines (Architecture, Structure & MEP).
The Principals of WF have exceptional industry pedigree. Peter Routledge was MD of Tekla UK and has a huge amount of experience in the AEC sector. Paul Woddy is one of the UK’s leading independent Revit authors and trainers, having been involved with the product since the very early days, before it was acquired by Autodesk.
The WF training materials cover 13 core modules, plus a further 6 discipline-specific topics. Similarly, the KS assessments present 95 new questions, across these 19 modular areas. The first new module, Revit Architecture 2012, goes live next week. The questions are written to comply with the AEC (UK) BIM Standard.
The idea, very simply, is to dovetail the KS results and highlighted skills gaps, into the appropriate modular courseware developed by WF. Unlike other Revit training resources, or video tutorials, the WF content is intended for instructor-led training and designed with the trainer in mind, whether a full-time professional trainer or a part-time internal trainer, it includes all the tools to deliver high quality consistent training for AEC firms. In addition to delegate notes, the trainer gets access to trainer notes, slideshows and datasets to support the lectures, as well as more datasets, drawings and AVI videos to support the practical exercises.

By the close of the year, our intention is to create assessments for RAC 2012 (metric & Imperial), RST 2012 (metric & Imperial) and RMEP 2012 (metric & Imperial). More information and live product demonstrations of the combined assessment & training solution from KS & WF will be on display at Autodesk University.
