OpenPlant Modeler Project Based Training

Training session facilitated by Ace Industrial Academy.

This course is suitable for students who wish to develop competent skills in 3D modelling of a water treatment/power plant or for any Mechanical, Electrical, Plumbing (MEP) specific related discipline. This includes setting up of models, routing pipes/cable trays to modelling of custom equipment. This course is useful for BIM modelers, coordinators, managers and drafters to understand the basics of this software and to deliver integrated designs with modeled pipes, equipment, supports, instrumentation, HVAC and other MEP related items.

*A Certificate of Completion will be issued to each trainee at the end of the course.*

Prerequisite: No prior experience required.
