Autodesk Revit MEP 2018: The Complete Guide


Autodesk® Revit® MEP software is the building information modeling (BIM) solution for mechanical, electrical, and plumbing (MEP) engineers, providing purpose-built tools for building systems design and analysis. With Revit MEP, engineers can make better decisions earlier in the design process because they can accurately visualize building systems before they are built.

Autodesk Revit MEP 2018: The Complete Guide is designed to give you a solid understanding of Revit MEP features and capabilities from the basics through to advanced components.  This course provides a detailed description of all basic and advanced concepts as well as the usage of the tools and commands of Autodesk Revit MEP 2018. It explores the processes involved in Building Information Modeling. The topics covered range from creating building components, HVAC systems, electrical systems, plumbing systems, fire protection systems to designing conceptual massing, performing HVAC heating and loading analysis, and creating rich construction documentation. Special emphasis has been laid on the concepts of space modeling and tools to create systems for all disciplines (MEP).​

To get the most out of this course, we strongly recommend you review every topic within the course, and use all the learning styles to ensure you retain the important information within. We also encourage you to take all the progress tests to ensure you have retained the knowledge, and most importantly practice with the hundreds of real world, Let Me Try examples.

$395.00 - Guided courses qualify for Autodesk Certificates of Completion and come with Technical Help Desk support. The course is structured to be completed in order from beginning to end. Once any topic is completed, you will have full access to it at any time for one year after registration, to use as a resource.

$295.00 -Flexible course delivery allows full access to any area of the course. Because it is not structured, it is not eligible for Autodesk Certificates of Completion, but it does contain all the same content as the Guided version, including the lecture quizzes for your own assessment. Flexible courses are also available to you for one full year after registration. This allows you to find what you need, whenever you need it.
