The Professional Conversion Programme (PCP) for BIM Professionals supports mid-career Professionals, Managers, Executives and Technicians (PMETs) to acquire the necessary competencies to embark on a career in the built environment industry. It is managed by the Building and Construction Authority (BCA) with funding support from WSG.
About the Job & Career Progression
As the built environment industry moves rapidly into BIM, there are many more opportunities for individuals to take on BIM roles. BIM modellers and specialists will begin with creating and managing BIM models, and performing model checks and audits. They will also collaborate with stakeholders to implement BIM in the entire construction process, and conduct building simulation to detect and resolve potential building issues. BIM modellers and specialists can aspire to become BIM managers and directors, coordinating multiple BIM projects and leading the organisation's overall BIM strategies.
Programme Structure & Certification
To facilitate PMETs in their new careers as BIM professionals, participants will undergo 12 month structured PCP programme including classroom training at BCA Academy, coupled with on-the-job training delivered by the PCP employer. Candidates with relevant built environment experience or qualifications may participate in the accelerated 6-month training programme.
Courses delivered under the PCP programme includes a foundation module in Construction Management, Certification Course in BIM Modelling, Certification Course in BIM Management, as well as a Specialist Diploma in BIM. All courses are offered by BCA Academy.
