The toughest part of learning a new program is understanding a new workflow and process.

We know it can be frustrating trying to figure out where both Archicad and Revit are alike and where they differ.

That’s why we developed this course, where we help Revit users transition to Archicad by explaining with terminology that they are familiar with. This course will come with an Agenda/Overview of the training to help attendees take notes and follow along with the course, as well as a terminology breakdown with images to aid with the learning process.
