About Us

Blueist is an Autodesk® Authorized Training Center, whose curriculum includes advanced modules that go beyond simple shapes into complex, innovative and themed designs through software that empowers Building Information Modeling (BIM).

At Blueist, architects learn Revit’s single application that includes features for architectural design, MEP, and structural engineering and construction. Working with knowledgeable instructors in quiet classroom settings, Blueist’s students develop architectural skills with sample projects. Classrooms in the Blueist facility in Glendale, California accommodate up to 50 people. Architects enhance their competitive edge through this coursework, and validate their product knowledge by getting Autodesk Certified when they take a certification exam.
