Future Skills Programme

       Building the future of construction technology training. 




CitA has secured funding from Skillnet Ireland’s ‘Future Skills Programme‘ to deliver the buildingSmart International Professional Certification.

BuildingSMART is an international organisation which aims to improve the exchange of information between software applications used in the construction industry. BuildingSMART has launched a Professional Certification Program, to support training providers to deliver internationally standardised and recognised training content.

The program is managed and operated at a national level through the local Chapters. Chapters engage with their local industry and adapt the learning framework for country-specific requirements.

The certification programme will have 6 modules in total, 5 of which will be the same internationally, and the 6th module will be specific to each individual Chapter.

Dr. Alan Hore is working closely with the UK BIM Alliance team to develop the 6th module for the UK & Ireland Chapter.

The benefits of having internationally recognised certification include;

  • Standardised training content based on the latest international development and best practices.
  • A globally recognised qualification and mark of quality assurance.
  • A simple, fast and secure online testing and qualification process.
