  • You will need a copy of Bluebeam Revu 2018 (Standard, CAD, or eXtreme) installed prior to the class. 
  • If you need a 30-day trial of Revu, get it here
  • Easy to follow instructor-led training
  • Harness some of the most powerful functions for Quantity Takeoff work in Revu
  • This class is not for the Revu Mac version of Revu or users who have no experience with Bluebeam Revu
  • Q&A Session to follow class

In a sense it's both. Although we will be distributing datasets after this class, you aren't required to follow along. However, the datasets are really good practice after the class without using your own data!
