GeoBIM Application and Technology Certification Programme

Strictly by pre-registration only

What is this course about?

The GeoBIM Application and Technology Certification Program aims to demonstrate how the integration of GIS and BIM technologies – also known as GeoBIM – can be applied throughout the key stages of a building’s lifecycle: Design, construction, operations, and maintenance. 

Certified trainers from Esri Singapore and BIMAGE Consulting will take you through how GeoBIM supports and benefits the industry through real-life scenarios like as site selection, facilitating compliance with authority regulations, and emergency response.

By using the various components of the ArcGIS platform and BIM editors, you will integrate BIM models in GIS accurately and quickly, to produce GeoBIM models that can be analysed closely in a geospatial context.

Please note that this course is not eligible for Enterprise Agreement credit redemption.

Continuing Professional Development (CPD) Framework
Licensed architects attending this course will be qualified for 18 CPD points by SILA.
Professional Engineers (PE) attending this course will be qualified for 15 PDUs by PEB.

This course is for: Individuals and professionals responsible for creating building and infrastructure models to analyse their impact on the surroundings.

Safety measures for training courses

While courses in our training facility have resumed, we want to assure you that the wellbeing of our trainees and staff remains Esri Singapore’s highest priority.

As the COVID-19 situation continues to develop, strict safety measures and guidelines as recommended by the Ministry of Health are being adhered to for all training conducted.

All computer equipment and desks are disinfected before class commences and during the lunch break, while seats are placed and marked at least 1-metre apart, in accordance with official Safe Distance Measures.

Masks are mandatory throughout training, and alcohol hand sanitisers and anti-bacterial wet wipes will be available.

Your temperature will be taken before commencement. For your safety, you will be asked to return home and see a doc if your temperature exceeds 37.5deg.

An isolation room has been prepared for trainees to rest in if they are feeling unwell and awaiting transportation.
