    1. Steve Hacker

      I have no hesitation in recommending Academy Class. I had one-to-one training and now feel confident in tackling edits and changes on large complex documents. The trainer presented clearly, was very patient and keen to ensure that I understood everything that I was being taught.

    2. Ilona S.

      The team here are just great. Knowledgeable, professional and approachable – making learning fun! I was made to feel welcome and learnt a great deal. Though the learning doesnt stop there they continue to provide support with any queries you have once youve left! Ive signed up for 2 more courses already! :0)

    3. Haris S

      Highly recommended. Extremely polite, patient and competent staff. Also have great admin, brilliant learning material and after support.
      Throughout the days the trainers were able to impart small doses of good Revit practice until after three days I found that I had a full cup of Revit Gold. Look forward to Green Belt and beyond!.

    4. Gemma

      I was provided very little information about the course before attending and had to request this by e-mail.

    5. Steve

      Very enjoyable informative course. Sold the benefits of BIM in a very convincing manner!

    6. Liam

      Very enjoyable and informative course. Learning material was very good and the instructor was very helpful.

    7. Douglas

      The content of the course could have been reduced slightly and more time devoted to fewer subjects to ensure better understanding

    8. Dal

      After a little initial confusion my needs were met.

    9. Navid

      I took this course 6 years ago and haven’t used it since. Its a great course and I learned a lot. I would also recommend to anyone who wants to learn this course. However there are some fundamental parts that from my opinion wasn’t covered. As we created a building and through this making we learned how to use Revit, there was no coverage for foundation and basement section specially with walls or piles that goes underground.

    10. maria

      course content is great. facilities are very minimal and classrooms are dusty, equipment is very basic / old and chairs are extremely uncomfortable / broken – not great for a full time course

    11. Elizabeth

      Everything ran very smoothly and the teacher was clever in helping reinforce the concepts in my mind

    12. daniel

      i really enjoyed the class, i have learned more about revit in two day, what would have taking me a long time. the teaching is very good, not to fast and not two slow.

    13. Thomas

      Very Informative course with a lot to absorb in the one week. Could perhaps do with more reinforcement at times to help learning process.

    14. Steven

      There should be better communication on how long the course lasts.

    15. Ant’onio

      Maurice was a great teacher, great teaching metodology. Made Revit very simple to understand by explaining everything in a way that the class could easily understand.

    16. Gabriella

      Roadworks outside meant windows needed to be closed (still too loud even when closed) which made the room really hot. Only got fans on the second day and they were just blowing hot air around. One member of the class was way behind everyone else, didn’t even seem to know what a CAD program was/ the basics of architecture, and she got approx. 20 mins one on one time per day because of this (unfair). Majority of the class couldn’t understand instructor due to roadworks+ accent Split screens didn’t work first day so had to crank neck round for big screen… very slow learning process. Also caused approx 1hr 30 mins worth of delays trying to fix split screens. Therefore i don’t think we covered all the content which is disappointing

    17. Franco

      1. The classroom was BOILING the whole time. 2. The secondary screen didn’t work the first day, and the second day they were giving issues (there are better ways to show what the teacher is doing, like programs that allow the teacher to take control of all the screens for a period of time. 3. The course in my opinion was too expensive for the slow and old equipment and lack of commodities (like A.C). The only good thing was the location, and you can’t rely on that every time. 4. The teacher was great and also his attitude. He has a strong accent, but he was making the best to speak slowly.

    18. Luiza

      The problem is that the class is too warm and it can be a bit anoying. Also, on the first day the screens in the middle of the computers were not working, so we had to use a TV instead… It was very difficult to keep up with the lecture this way.

    19. anca

      The course started late 2 days in a row resulting in a lose of 2 hours that were not recuperated. It generally seemed to go quite slow , but I couldn’t know how it is supposed to go as there was no reference on what we need to achieve everyday.

    20. margherita letizia

      It was really helpful. The administration helped me a lot for the registration, and the course is very well made. The teacher as well has a very good structure in teaching and explaining the program

    21. Felix

      The course was good and enjoyable to participate in. The instructor was helpful and energetic throughout and constantly reinforced learning objectives each day. For me personally it was extra useful as a learning tool because i am not an Architect.

    22. Daniel

      Was hard to Keep up with the pace of the class at times.

    23. Sam

      There was some confusion in regards to the booking process by the admin side by easily resolved with no issues and in a friendly manner. I also didn’t receive my Revit guide book via email At times it was hard to keep up with the tutor and if you were writing notes and fell behind, it got a bit confusing. A bit more practice time after each steps would be useful and a quick description of each step to be carried out next.

    24. Sadir

      Overall, was a very informative course. Teacher was great.

    25. chris

      its not quite zero to hero. there’s a lot still to learn and lots of time required to be able to put this into practice.

    26. Andrew

      Good course with good facilities and instructor. Not ideal that course moved from Manchester to London but good overall.

    27. Matt

      Venue is quite small and cramped but in a good location and well catered for in terms of learning materials. The course I booked onto was cancelled and communication before the course was scarce, however the course itself has been very informative and helpful, albeit in specifics I did not find entirely relevant, potentially at the cost of learning more relevant things to myself, however this would be very bespoke and tailored.

    28. David

      As i was completley new to this industry. I would like it to been more slow and steady and more clear i felt very rushed in everything. as i got information overload

    29. Mike

      I thought the course was aimed at independent architects wishing to increase their knowledge and ability of BIM. I was hoping that the course would consider more of the BIM interfaces to different tools post construction.

    30. Arran

      Good teacher went through at a decent pace. Venue setup was good and it wasn’t a crowded class

    31. RAPHAEL


    32. James

      The course was very enjoyable and was easy to understand the requirements during each session. I have learnt a great deal during the course but could possibly be spread over a few more days as there is so much to learn.

    33. S

      Good course with knowledgable teacher. Only feedback would be to work on a more interesting design proposal. Might be more interesting to use a real building that is still simple and achievable to build in the time, such as Le Corbusier – Villa Savoye, https://archinect.com/ArchNyen/project/villa-savoye-revit-model Also, aware that it’s reflective of the cost of the course, but would have been easier to go at the right pace with a smaller class size.
