How to Bring AGC's BIM Education Program to You

AGC's BIM Education Program is designed for local delivery—whether at a local AGC Chapter, within your construction firm, or at your local community college or joint-apprenticeship training program.

AGC of America, along with industry experts, develops instructor and participant resources for the delivery of this training—ensuring the same quality program no matter where it is offered across the country.

Where do I start?

If You’re at a Construction Firm

  1. See if the training is offered locally.

    AGC’s BIM Education Program may already be available at an AGC Chapter near you. View a listing of currently scheduled courses or contact your local AGC Chapter to learn more.

  2. Determine which courses are right for your company.

    View the course descriptions to learn more about what is in each BIM Education Program course or purchase the Participant’s Manuals and Instructor’s Guides through the AGC Store.

  3. Take the steps to become or find an approved instructor

    Potential instructors must become approved by AGC of America to deliver this training. Courses facilitated without an approved instructor will not be entered in the national database and will not count toward the requirements for the Certificate of Management—Building Information Modeling (CM-BIM) credential.

    The approval process includes a review of the relevant Instructor’s Guides and Participant’s Manuals, viewing an orientation webinar, and submittal of application and CV for approval. More information on the instructor approval process and the requirements forms can be found in the Instructor Resources section.

    AGCA maintains a listing of currently approved instructors that can be obtained by emailing curriculum@agc.org.

  4. Identify participants.

    We suggest that you have at least 10-15 individuals that you wish to take each course (or the entire five course program) to encourage maximum participation.

  5. Purchase your course books from the AGC Store or over the phone at 1-800-242-1767.

    AGC Member pricing is available on all manuals so be sure to login to find out what your pricing will be.

  6. Host your course!

    AGC provides certificate templates, evaluation forms (found in the back of each manual) and other resources you need on the course date.

    Following the course just send us the original Participant’s Registration and Course Evaluation forms out of the back of the Participant’s Manual and we'll keep a record of all your participants to allow them to apply for the CM-BIM assessment.

If You’re at an Educational Institution

Several different things may come of this—AGC’s BIM Education Program may already be available at an AGC Chapter near you or this may open up a way to partner with the local contractor community and reach more individuals. View a listing of currently scheduled courses to see where BIM Education Program courses are being held or contact your local AGC Chapter to learn more.

2.Purchase Instructor's Guides and Participant’s Manuals for the courses you're interested in offering.

The Instructor's Guides provide a detailed look at the contents of each course, providing the instructor with lesson plans, PowerPoint presentations, discussion guides and answers to worksheets and case studies. The Participant’s Manual provides the instructor with the narrative course material that participants will reference throughout the class. These resources are designed to work in tandem and both are necessary to fully review the course content.

Course manuals can be purchased through the AGC Store. View the course descriptions to learn more about what is in each unit.
