Role Of A Higher Nitec Graduate in AcePLP
Higher Nitec fresh graduates and mid-careerists with no prior work experience will complete 2 months of classroom training in BIM and CAD applications. The training is conducted by Ace Industry Academy (AIA), the official training arm of AcePLP, and will prepare you as you embark on your career as BIM Engineer. AIA is an SSG/WSG-approved training provider, and some modules which you attend during this period will be WSQ-accredited, and in line with the national skills framework for the Built Environment. (SSG/WSG is a statutory council formed by the Ministry of Manpower and Ministry of Education.)
Certificates will be awarded on completion of classroom training, and thereafter, you will be assigned to work on projects to gain experience. To guarantee a smooth transition, AcePLP pairs freshly trained BIM engineers with senior colleagues or Alumni. Trainers will also be on hand to assist the new Engineers if they run into any challenges. The experience you gain from participating in projects can be used towards the Digital Delivery Management Accreditation Scheme.
In your projects, you may work with developers and main contractors with their own Civil and Structural Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Aerospace, Landscape Architecture, Design, C&S engineering consultants, registered surveyors, and more.
As you learn and progress in the digital delivery services role, you may be moved into assignments that require a great deal of integration and coordination with other stakeholders, because the role of design and construction is often a collaboration between consultants, contractors, and specialists. BIM models are essential for better collaboration, reducing cost, and improving the quality of the work by enabling iterative design, review, and updates.
Advancements in construction technology are reshaping the future of multiple sectors and your experience will also contribute towards an entry into the desirable career track within the Built Environment.
What You Will Learn On The Job
In the 26-month AcePLP Career Advancement Programme, you start off in our classrooms to undergo intense technical training in BIM to build your foundational skills in Digital Delivery Management.
Through our training programme, we ensure that you gain the ability to use the most popularly used BIM application software in Singapore, which are Autodesk Revit, Bentley OpenBuilding, OpenRail and OpenPlant. This gives you the flexibility to work on various kinds of building and infrastructure projects in Singapore. We will also cover the use of 2D products such as AutoCAD and MicroStation, which are crucial for the documentation of the BIM models.
As when opportunity arises, we will put you through training in 3D BIM products, combining the BIM model with a Microsoft Projects or Primavera P6 schedule using products such as Synchro 3D or Navisworks Manage, enabling you to deliver on Virtual Design and Construction processes. You may undergo other types of training depending on your interest and where the opportunities take you.
what is your career progression like?
BIM has greatly improved how architects and engineers design and construct buildings and have now become integral to all processes in the Built Environment. If you are a Higher Nitec graduate you will have many opportunities in Digital Delivery Management track, so long as your interest lies in technology implementation. Jobs in Digital Delivery involves the adoption and implementation of up-to-date emerging digital technologies to optimize operations and processes, improve collaboration and enhance work efficiency.
You can progress in this track to become an expert DDM professional, rising in the ranks to become a Tier 2 (Lead) BIM Manager, and then a Chief Digital Officer (Tier 1), where you will oversee the implementation and innovation of digital solutions to achieve digital transformation in the business, leading the strategic direction in your team.
Depending on the assignment opportunities, you may also have collaborated with structural and/or mechanical and electrical teams. This kind of experience can have a transformative effect on your career as a Digital Delivery Management (BIM) professional, and on parallel, set you up for success if you choose to pursue many careers in Built Environment tracks, as our colleagues have done.
Get Accredited As A Digital Delivery Management Professional
The skills, knowledge, and experience which you gain from participating in this apprenticeship programme will make you eligible to become an accredited professional in the Digital Delivery Management (DDM) track of the Built Environment. This is a nationally recognized industry accreditation scheme that provides a structured framework to assess and recognize your digital skillsets. The recognition can help you ensure appropriate remuneration and enhance employability.
By gaining the requisite skills and experience through our apprenticeship programme, you will minimally qualify as a Tier 4 DDM Professional (Assistant Specialist), commonly known in our industry as a BIM Modeller/Engineer, at the end of the 26-month programme.
If you have undertaken BIM coordination projects in the period of your apprenticeship, integrating models from various engineering disciplines such as Structural services and Architecture to deliver coordinated combined services models, you may qualify at the Tier 3 DDM Professional (Specialist) level, commonly known in our industry as a BIM Coordinator.
