APDIQ to help interior designers master REVIT software

The Professional Association of Interior Designers of Quebec (APDIQ) and the Commission des partenaires de marché du travail (CPMT) have developed Graitec, a program of two complete training sessions designed specifically to help interior designers master the REVIT software.  

With a grant from the CPMT over a period of three years, the APDIQ wishes to support all interior designers in their digital transition by offering a complete training of the Revit software and its suite.

By joining the program, interior designers join a stream of professionals in the building industry who already use this software. The construction sector has already begun this process of digital transformation with the BIM Québec project, which targets companies in the Quebec construction industry. 

“It is with great joy and pride that the APDIQ announces this great news to the interior design community, as part of its 20th anniversary,” says Marie-Claude Parenteau-Lebeuf, executive director of the Association.  “For those who have lived through the transition from the drafting table to AutoCAD – which is not so far behind us – the BIM revolution is the next marker for our field. We definitely don’t want anyone to miss this train.” 

The program provides two training courses: the 52.5 hr basic training + 13 hour personalized coaching provides an in-depth introduction to REVIT software for beginners or those looking to refresh their knowledge. The 22.5 hr intermediate course is ideal for those who have already completed the basic course and are ready to take their REVIT skills to the next level.

In addition, thanks to this grant, the salary of the firm’s employees will be covered during the training hours, up to $25/hour. 

“For a designer in an established firm or a self-employed person looking to expand his or her skills, the APDIQ REVIT training program for interior designers has all the necessary assets to make a successful digital transition,” says the organization.
