The COBie Academy is designed to provide contractors, subcontractors, architects, engineers, information managers, and owners with the essential knowledge and hands-on techniques needed to produce, test, and apply COBie. Self-paced online courses allow students to master the Construction-Operations Building information exchange (COBie) Standard. Webcasts provide teams or organizations the ability to interact with the instructor real-time as they learn COBie together.
Approx 3-6 Months
Online courses are available for you to take anytime, anywhere. While the course content is recorded, your course experience is tailored to you. Direct interaction with the instructor ensures that every student has their questions answered. Course assignments help you practice what you learned and instructor feedback helps lock that knowledge in place.
This course prepares those creating and managing the production and delivery of COBie data to understand the requirement and expected benefits resulting from real-time handover data and the scope and organization of a COBie deliverable.
This course prepares those integrating COBie production into design and construction workflows, customizing deliverable requirements, COBie best-practices, and quality control. This three-course series covers COBie for design, construction, and quality control. This course is a COBie Certified Professional Registered Training Provider.
Profitable COBie implementation requires standard operating procedures across the enterprise. Students create a COBie implementation plan covering the role of your employees, contract partners and stakeholders, process, and technology. Use the resulting COBie ScoreCard(TM) to link the plan to fiscal objectives.
This course introduces the Construction-Operations Building information exchange (COBie) standard. It reviews current construction handover practices, explains why adding COBie requirements to traditional handover practice adds cost without additional value and identifies where COBie data is already produced during design and construction.
This course will provide users of Autodesk Revit a step-by-step guide to the production of COBie data as part of their design process. Configuration files created during this course may be used by senior BIM Technicians, BIM Managers, BIM Coordinators, and BIM Information Managers to develop or improve BIM Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) for themselves and their business partners.
Live webcasts offer a mix of lecture and hands-on problem solving to jumpstart your COBie activities. These courses can be organized in one- or three-day sessions, based on your needs. Held during US business hours, these live courses are arranged in advance to coordinate scope and stakeholder calendars.

Prerequisite: COBie As-Built.
This two-hour short course helps designers, contractors, and owners understand the purpose and use of the international Construction Operations Building information exchange (COBie) standard. Those completing this course will understand the organization of a COBie data set and alternative COBie process that might be used to create COBie data.
This hands-on course helps designers, contractors, and owners understand the practical requirements and workflow implications of the international Construction Operations Building information exchange (COBie) standard. Those completing this course will understand COBie and the COBie process regardless of the software they currently use. Hands-on portions of the course will have students manually creating and checking COBie deliverables.
This course helps portfolio managers and owners understand the context and implications of Building Information Modeling (BIM) technology. This hands-on course will have facility/asset management teams creating and checking deliverables conforming to the international Construction Operations Building information exchange (COBie) standard.
