Sheet Metal Workers� Local 36 Expands BIM Curriculum
Sheet Metal Workers� Local 36 and the Sheet Metal Workers� Joint Apprenticeship and Training Program, St. Louis, have added Steve Sneed as an apprentice instructor and coordinator of their newly developed Building Information Modeling (BIM) program.
BIM is rapidly growing in the construction industry as a way for workers in different trades to work more efficiently together on job sites.
Sneed has been involved with the Sheet Metal International Training Institute’s newly developed BIM program, Construction Coordination Software (CCS), since its inception and holds all current certifications involved with the product. He is a certified detailing educator, certified detailing coordinator and a certified detailing inspector, which will allow Local 36 to teach the new CCS software as well as certify apprentices or journeymen who complete the course study. The ultimate goal is to certify additional Local 36 workers so that they receive their own set of the CCS software that can be used on job sites to help them and their contractors be more cost efficient.
