Comprehensive need for qualification
A first bout of qualifications on the entire BIM functionality has already taken place as well: 69 project leaders with DB Station & Service have already passed the BIM qualification. These qualifications will be continued in 2017, starting with another 300 project leaders. There is extensive demand: in 2017, already nine big DB Netz pilot projects will be carried out with BIM, and more than 100 smaller projects at DB Station & Service. By 2020, all 6,000 persons concerned are to have successfully passed BIM qualification.
Enquiry at the divisions
Currently (November 2016), an enquiry at the divisions is underway. The goal is to organise the qualification demand across divisions in order to carry out the trainings as efficiently and cost-effectively as possible. In addition, DB Training will prepare specific qualification measures for individual target groups within the DB Group.
Opportunity for external partners
But not only there: BIM will only be able to deploy its full potential once external partners – planners, suppliers, construction companies – also work with BIM. That's why DB Training will also qualify such partners upon demand. One thing is clear already: for everyone doing construction projects with and for the DB Group, this will be absolutely key.
