Revit Electrical Essentials

July 11 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm EDT

Sometimes it seems the Revit training world ignores electrical work. They focus on architecture and, if you’re lucky, MEP, but they somehow always seem to gloss right over the “E” in that word, throwing in a few quick minutes discussing what it can do, but never showing you how. This course is designed specifically for those who make their living in the electrical side of the MEP world, and who need detailed instruction on how to make effective use of the powerful tools inside Revit for your own particular industry. If you’re looking to reduce model production times, and increase the quality of your output, this class from ZenTek consultants is exactly what you need.

This eight (8) hour course is delivered in four (4), two-hour long sessions that students can attend online, right from their own desk. A live instructor will explain the detailed functions and address questions as the class progresses.

Note: Instructor will present using Autodesk Revit 2024. Students who wish to follow along with instructor are encouraged to use the same version. Students should have a solid understanding of Revit or have taken the Revit Exploring the Essentials course. 

Recording: Registrants for this course will receive access to a recording of each session for 7 consecutive days. Access will start the next business day after the session ends.
