BIM Leaderboard Programme

Your project succeeds or fails on the backs of your experience and knowledge. Having a course certificate does not make you a professional or an expert. If it was that easy we would all be professors or doctors. Having only a certificate of completion is not enough in todays fast moving digital transformation. Industry experts need to be trained for life, not just trained to make a living. You need to be intellectually prepared to understand the needs of other professionals on projects while still applying their technological skills

All our courses are gamified and support a set of leader badges that are being awarded to you based on your behaviour and the goals you achieve when doing your courses. It is essential for any learner to excel while learning and share and learn from other learners while growing their own knowledge base...this is the heart of Exceptional BIM
