THE PATH TO REVIT MASTERY

The Revit mastery path is a collection of 150+ skills, grouped into five skill levels. Within each skill level, the skills are
further grouped into categories that roughly correspond to Revits categories. Take a look at the skills in each level.
Where are you on the path to Revit mastery?

1. Newbie
A Newbie user has no practical experience with Revit. Theyre the equivalent of a white belt in martial arts and are
working toward their yellow belt. These users are developing the basic skills required to contribute to a Revit project.
Once a user has completed basic Revit training and demonstrated mastery of these skills, they can move on to the skills
in the next category.
