In this second course using the Revit MEP tools, you will focus on creating a set of MEP construction documents using the project modeled in BIM 321. The set of construction documents created will include annotations, notes and schedules necessary to finish deliverable drawings, extracting them from the Revit MEP model.
Your instructor is an Autodesk Certified Instructor and is a practicing MEP Engineering Professional who uses Revit MEP on a daily basis. This online Revit MEP training class will be taught from the MEP engineer’s and designer’s perspective. Architects and others will also improve and enhance their Revit MEP skills to gain more valuable Revit and Revit MEP insight, especially regarding the creation of family files.
You will improve your skills regarding how Revit MEP is used to integrate MEP systems into the building envelope and how Revit MEP helps you facilitate collision detection within Navisworks.
In this online Revit MEP training course, we will create MEP-based construction documents. We create the sheets, annotations, notes and schedules necessary to create deliverable construction documents.
- Explore the methodologies for turning a MEP building model into construction documents that can be used for construction.
- Apply workflow strategies for efficient use of a BIM Model.
- Label building components using annotative elements to create a sheet view that can be used for construction documents.
- Produce a set of working construction documents with annotations, detail callouts, and general notes.

Free Access to the Software
While you are a student at VDCI, you will be provided free access to the software needed to participate in your course. Throughout your studies at VDCI, it is very important that you have access to good-quality Internet bandwidth with a download speed of 10 Mbps.
- Mastering Autodesk Revit MEP
- For International Students, VDCI does not ship textbooks internationally. Please click here to obtain the ISBN number and order the book from Amazon in your home country.
Can I work at my own pace?
Yes. You can work at your own pace. Each course is 18 days long. You will have two weeks and three weekends to complete the course. There are set deliverable schedules which are addressed in the course syllabus.
Free Access to the Software
While you are a student at VDCI, you will be provided free access to the software needed to participate in your course. The software provided will either be downloaded directly onto your machine or you will access the software on one of our Virtual Servers. Throughout your studies at VDCI, it is very important that you have access to good-quality Internet bandwidth. It is also very important, if you are accessing our Virtual Servers, that you pay special attention to the MP4 and PDF guidance provided regarding saving your project files (datasets) onto your local machine.
There are two discussion forums for the course, the Student Forum and the Graded Forum.
The Student Forum is for you to interact with your fellow classmates, to discuss issues you are having, and get to know one other much like you would in a classroom environment.
The Graded Discussion Forum requires an initial post and a response to another student. These will be part of your final grade. Your initial discussion post is due Monday, one week from the beginning of class, by 11:55pm Pacific Time. Your second discussion post must be a response to another student, and it is due by the end of the course.
VDCI Student Lounge
The VDCI Student Lounge is open to all VDCI Students and Alumni. In the Student Lounge, you are welcome to ask general questions to your VDCI colleagues. Instructors and VDCI staff regularly chime in. This is a great center of engagement for our VDCI community.
Students will receive a detailed syllabus once they are enrolled in the course.
