Continuing Education opportunities
The New Jersey Revit Users Group is pleased to announce the creation of NJ-RUG and would like to extend an open invitation to our monthly meetings. Our mission and purpose is to create the right conditions for NJ AEC Professionals to learn about Revit / BIM and increase the adoption of BIM across our industry.
The NJ-RUG meetings will focus on the holistic lifecycle of the BIM process; from pre-construction all the way through facility management. Discussions will focus on user training and development, new technology, and applications as they relate to Revit and interoperable programs.
Come to our next event and meet with local AEC professionals to collaborate and discuss the use and implementation of Revit / BIM. All Revit user levels are welcome and we also want to encourage attendance and participation from senior architects and project managers.
The Auditorium at DLB Associates, 265 Industrial Way Eatontown, NJ 07724
