Detailing – Software classes

We are currently offering 3 classes that teach software used to detail. Intro to Revit is an entry level class, it is offered both as an in-person class and as a distance learning class. Revit for Detailing and Fabrication in Revit are more comprehensive and offered as a two-part series in an online format.

In-person, distance learning or online – which is the right class format for you?

  • In-Person.
    Intro to Revit will be taught in-person. If you need hands-on help with the computer, do not have access to a strong enough computer to run the software, or prefer the learning environment of a classroom, the in-person classes are best for you. There is no prerequisite for the in-person classes; all you need to bring is your willingness to learn. The in-person classes run for 6 weeks, 2 evenings a week. Check the continuing education schedules of the Training Centers to see when this class is offered in your area.
  • Distance Learning.
    The Intro to Revit will also be taught through distance learning. The class will meet 2 evenings a week via Zoom meetings. You must have basic Windows based computer skills to take this class, including being able to install and remove programs, save, save as, copy, paste, move and delete files. You also must have access to a strong enough computer to run the software. If you are unsure if your computer can handle it, a link is provided below for Autodesk’s recommendations. You must be capable of working on your own, with an instructor available for guidance during the class periods. This class will run for 7 weeks, 2 evenings a week. The first week will be used for software and computer setup.
  • Online.
    The Revit for Detailing & Fabrication in Revit classes are offered fully online. The two classes together will give existing detailers a very solid foundation to begin detailing in Revit. This is also a good starting point for members who are not currently working as full-time detailers but would like to. Basic computer skills and access to a computer are required. Students must be capable of working independently, as instructor help is not as readily available. There are no set class times, only weekly due dates for class assignments & quizzes. The Revit class is a 3-hour per week, 13-week class, and the Fabrication class is 4 hours per week, 12-week class There is a two-week break between the Revit for Detailing and the start of the Fabrication in Revit class.

Intro to Revit 2023

If you are not planning on becoming a fulltime detailer but would like to learn enough Revit to be able to do some simpler tasks in Revit on the jobsite, the Intro to Revit class may be all that you need. This class may also give you enough exposure to the software so that you can determine if detailing is a viable option for you. It provides hands-on experience using the latest technology that is used for detailing. Please request the class syllabus for more information on what is covered in the class.

Introduction to Revit (in-person)

  • Prerequisite: Local 104 Member in good standing
  • Description: 40-hour, 2 evenings per week, 6 week, in-person class. It is designed for those members who have access to Revit on a jobsite & would like to be able to use Revit to perform simple tasks themselves, or think they might like to become detailers, but have not had exposure to detailing software. It will be taught at a moderate pace, covering the user interface, basic modeling skills, drawing Revit duct, converting Revit duct to Fabrication duct, modifying Fabrication duct & spooling. Very basic computer experience is helpful but not required.

Introduction to Revit (distance learning)

  • Prerequisite:
    • Local 104 Member in good standing, Apprentices must be on the coordinator’s list, & may not receive credit towards their apprentice requirements from the distance learning class that they would receive from the in-person classes.
    • A computer and good basic computer skills (Windows based). Prior CAD experience is not necessary.
  • Description: 44 hours, 2 evenings per week, 7-week, with the first week being used for computer & software setup. The coursework is identical to the in-person class, but since the instructor is not able to access your computer, it is important that you have basic computer skills. An assignment & quiz are due each class session. Note: It is possible to take this class as if it were an online class, without having to attend the Zoom meetings, if you turn your assignment & quiz in before the start of the class session when they are due.

Revit 2023 for Detailing (online)

This class is designed to teach detailers how to begin to use Revit. Revit is Building Information Modeling software, so it is very complex. This class covers a lot of ground. Members are encouraged to take the class as many times as they need to, to become comfortable working in the program.

  • Prerequisites:
    • Journeyperson in good standing, or Apprentice on the Coordinator’s List.
    • A computer and good basic computer skills (Windows based). Prior CAD experience is not necessary.
  • Description: This is a 3- hour per week,13-week fully online class. The first week will include zoom meetings to make sure your computer & software are set up correctly. The remaining classes will be fully online. A Revit project & quiz are due weekly. The class will cover basic & complex modeling tools. We will draw a simple building to explore how Revit settings and tools work together. The last modules will explore View control & other tools Revit uses to control what & how elements are displayed. Please request the class syllabus for more information on what is covered & how the online classes work.

Fabrication in Revit 2023 (online)

This class is a continuation from the Revit for Detailing class, that covers how to draw Fabrication duct in Revit. Members are encouraged to take the class as many times as they want to.

  • Prerequisites: Must have successfully completed Revit for Detailing, or obtain instructor’s permission.
  • Description: This fully online class is 4-hour per week, for 12-weeks. This class will follow the Revit for Detailing class, after a 2-week break. It is a start-to-finish approach to the steps a detailer must do to produce a shop drawing, from project setup, importing Revit duct, converting Revit duct to Fabrication duct & duct modifications, through View creation, annotation & spooling. Please request the syllabus for more details on what will be covered.

Autodesk Revit 2023 Computer Requirements and Recommendations

Autodesk publishes computer recommendations for using their product. If you would like to check if your computer is strong enough, please check out the link below. The Minimum: Entry-Level Configuration is good enough for the distance learning class. If you are purchasing a computer, or going to be taking the online classes, the Value: Balanced price and performance specs would be a better choice.

October 1, 2021, the State of California has mandated that all required Mechanical Acceptance Tests be performed by ONLY certified Mechanical Acceptance Test Technicians working for certified Mechanical Acceptance Test Employers. To meet these needs the Bay Area Training Centers will be conducting the required classes for the certification process. For Sheet Metal Journeypersons that do not hold a current TABB Technician certification, the MATT Level 1 certification is available through NEMIC (The National Energy Management Institute Committee, a national Joint Labor Management Committee) and offered through the training centers. There are two classes required, a lecture based class and a hands on lab class. The lecture class will cover State of California code and program requirements, the California Non Residential Compliance Manual and the required Mechanical acceptance test form requirements for each of the nine covered tests that MATT Level 1 technicians are allowed to perform. The Lab class will allow you to perform actual testing for each of the nine covered test forms and will include the required testing sessions for certification.

Two separate MATT Level 1 Lecture classes are scheduled to start May 2, 2022. Class A will be scheduled to attend on Monday & Wednesday evenings and Class B attending Tuesdays & Thursday evenings.   Due to current COVID-19 conditions and restrictions, all classes will currently be offered via Distance Learning format using Zoom Video Conferencing. The Hands on Lab classes will be scheduled to start at the conclusion of the final lecture class as an open lab concept.

This is a critically needed certification that can lead to excellent employment opportunities and job hours. In addition, Local 104 is offering a $500 bonus to those Journeypersons who achieve a MATT Certification.

Please contact your local JATC for enrollment information.


The International Training Institute (ITI) is now offering on-line courses including a Title 24 MATT Level 1 course, to members. To review the courses available, click on the link below to be directed the ITI’s website.
