Personalized training in Bluebeam

The content of this training is typically workflow specific and does not necessarily follow the Bluebeam Certified Training (BCT) - Revu 2017 method: Basic outline shown above.

The training program for personalized training in the workplace is derived from a pre-training telephone conference between the Bluebeam instructors of Orange Blade Consultants to analyze the specific needs of the client.

Ask us to come to you and provide a classroom style instruction with one of our Bluebeam certified coaches. This style of training tends to be very effective for our clients. Although web training is convenient for "Bit-Size" instruction chunks, nothing compares to having your own living / breathing Bluebeam Revu Expert in the same room as you and your computer. The on-site training allows a more practical work, as it allows a workshop or laboratory environment. Why live and breathe Bluebeam Revu for 90 minutes, when you can immerse your team in focused training all day or week?
