What previous attendees say

  • Definitely worth the money for two sessions and the chance to ask practice questions. Highly recommended. (Gavin M)
  • Thanks for organising the two FirstRate5 Live sessions. I got a lot out of this format of training delivery. Having a small group and being able to ask and discuss questions or problems directly has huge benefits for all who participated. Appreciate David’s expertise and ability to pinpoint the documentation that shows the answers to our queries. Again, due to the small group, the longer time and the Live format, the sessions developed into a comfortable and open discussion rather than a lecture.  Definitely worth participating. (Margaret T)

Tutorial Session One (Demonstration) - Thursday 30 May 12.00pm-4.00pm

In the first four-hour live and interactive tutorial, follow along as David demonstrates the modelling of a multi-dwelling project showing tips, tricks and shortcuts that will have you modelling more complex elements like a pro in no time.

During this interactive tutorial, you will have ample opportunity to have your questions answered and any grey areas clarified.

Tutorial Session Two (Practical + Q&A) - Friday 7 June 12.00pm - 4.00pm

We will return in a follow up four-hour live tutorial one week after the first demonstration and this is where you get to consolidate your new found knowledge by putting it into practice.

We will email you the demonstration drawings so you can upload into FirstRate5 and follow along as David once again leads you through the modelling exercise.

Once again, this will be an interactive tutorial where you can have your questions explained and demonstrated to ensure your best learning experience.
