The UK Learning Outcomes Framework is a free resource to support the development of training content for BIM aligned with current standards. Based upon the BIM Academic Forum’s ‘Learning Outcomes Framework’ (2012), this completely refreshed schedule, updated for the BS EN ISO 19650 series, is the result of collaboration between academics, UK construction industry education professionals and the UK BIM Framework member organisations, the British Standards Institute (BSI), the Centre for Digital Built Britain (CDBB), and the UK BIM Alliance (UKBIMA).

The learning outcomes resource includes:

➢ Why information management using BIM is required, and its strategic context in the UK 

➢ The implications and value of information management using BIM for organisations 

➢ How information requirements are identified and communicated 

➢ How information is shared between organisations 

➢ Understanding the legal and security implications of the UK BIM Framework and its interfaces with other important processes such as health and safety management.

UK BIM Framework Learning Outcomes is aligned with buildingSMART UK Chapter’s Professional Certification (PCERT)1.

The Building Information Council (Bouw Informatie Raad, or BIR) promotes widespread application of BIM in the Dutch construction and infrastructure industry. BIR is a unique partnership between various stakeholders in the construction industry, where the members represent both their construction industry segment and their own company. They make practical agreements that are in the interests of the entire industry and ensure these are implemented within their own segment. The partnership focuses on implementing BIM to strengthen the quality, continuity and competitive position of the Dutch construction and infrastructure industry. The resources cotained on the website help to accelerate the development and adoption of BIM within the Netherlands.

This leaflet appendix to the leaflet 3 looks at the various BIM Competency Profiles. The leaflet talks through the competancies of the various project participants from Manager, to Cooordinator and through to Modeller.

This framework was published under the ‘Support Skills Development and Develop Appropriate Tools’ workstream of the Digital Building Transition Plan (PTNB). It allows trainers to develop BIM courses that are suited to the real needs of contractors and construction companies.

The stages in the life of a building have been broken down into about 20 activities that may involve members of the project management or companies. Each activity is associated with the skills specific to the stage of the project and to the project management or construction professionals. Skills are 4 to 14 per activity, to which must be added transversal skills for all the activities. These skills are broken down into knowledge and know-how. They are described and presented according to the recommendations of the National Commission for Professional Certification (CNCP).
