CanBIM Professional Certification is a tiered program providing a benchmark for individuals to be certified to industry-recognized levels of competency in BIM/Digital Project Delivery.
CanBIM Professional Certification signifies that industry professionals have attained a level of knowledge and experience that is transferable, relevant, and valuable to employers that are utilizing digital technologies, workflows, and processes.
Professional Certification is labeled with one of 4 levels, based on the amount of professional experience, including BIM/Digital Project Delivery process, and BIM digital tool usage. CanBIM certified courses also counts towards these experience hours. Fill out our pre-screening to find out which level is right for you.
Obtain the minimum required number of work experience hours in BIM Process, and/or BIM Digital Tools for your desired certification level. Take the pre-screening questionnaire to find out what level you qualify for.
CanBIM-certified programs and courses have an “hourly value” that counts towards your BIM Process or BIM Digital Tools experience hours. These hourly values exceed the actual number of hours spent in the course, so taking a course can help you get certified faster.
Certification is valid for two years, after which time certification may be renewed or upgraded based on accumulated professional hours. There is a CPD hour requirement that must be met for renewal. Applicants can upgrade their certification level at any time by submitting a certification application for the new certification level.UpgradeRenew
