Really understanding Business Information Modeling (BIM) is essential nowadays. The opportunities for users and companies are immense, however, do they have the right people? Do schools have the right training programs? These are questions that Rishabh Tandon, Manager of the Academic Programs at Bentley Institute, raises at the beginning of our question and answer session.
Certainly, BIM is highly beneficial, both for professionals searching for better employment opportunities as well as companies looking to increase their profits, shorten project life-cycles and become more competitive in the marketplace.
According to Rishabh, companies need to have the right people to actually work on those projects from day one. People who are well-trained in BIM implementation will be the winners of this digital race, although trained professionals able to take on BIM projects, thanks to highly-specialized and hands-on practical programs, are scarce.
Zigurat Global Institute of Technology and the Bentley Institute have created a partnership in order to fill this gap and create opportunities for professionals from the perspective of what companies such as Bentley need. The Global BIM Management Certification Program not only prepares professionals to work in this field but also offers the opportunity to gain experience in global, collaborative and practical projects as they would in the real world.
