This course is designed for new users of Revit MEP.
No previous CAD experience is necessary. However, it is recommended that students have a working knowledge of the following:
- MEP engineering principles.
- Microsoft Windows XP or newer.
The primary objective of this course is to teach delegates the concepts of building information modelling and introduce the tools for parametric engineering design and documentation using Revit MEP.
This course covers the basics of building information modelling and the tools for parametric MEP systems design and documentation. Delegates will learn the fundamental features of Revit MEP, and then progress through schematic design, system analysis and construction documentation before finishing with design visualisation.
Note: We normally train on the latest version.
During the course delegates will cover:
- Building Information Modelling
- Revit MEP Basics
- Exploring the User Interface

I found your trainer to be very enthusiastic, knowledgeable and above all, an extremely calm and patient person.
I thought that I would take some time out to drop you a brief line and to thank you for sending such an excellent trainer. I found your trainer to be very enthusiastic, knowledgeable and above all, an extremely calm and patient person.
Our group from Trillium completed our three day essentials CAD training course with Cadline yesterday.
I did do some training in CAD when I was at University, but as a straggler then, I did not get the level of support and help I needed from the lecturer who took that course. Consequently, I found that using CAD was very daunting, a stressor and to be avoided at all costs.
Not now though !!
Your trainer is an excellent ambassador for Cadline. I would like him to have recognition for his calm, patient manner, his helpfulness and most of all, for giving me the nudge I needed to overcome my CAD fears...
Well done to you all and thank you once again.
