Our BIM education program is the first of its kind in Vietnam and ASEAN.
We recognize the need for greater efficiency in Architecture, Engineering, and Construction which resulted in a demand for qualified BIM professionals within this region. In order to meet those demands, TBFA | IVDC has created a series of BIM courses for the ASEAN professionals focusing at this time on Vietnam and its rapidly developing population and developments.
Currently, the TBFA | IVDC program has 4 Series (Open, University, Professional and Corporate) and each series has its required certificate courses.

This is one of the reasons why we refer to the students are participants.
