The COBie Academy

The COBie Academy is designed to provide contractors, subcontractors, architects, engineers, information managers, and owners with the essential knowledge and hands-on techniques needed to produce, test, and apply COBie.  All courses are fully online and self-paced, allowing you to master the Construction-Operations Building information exchange (COBie) Standard on your time.


The COBie Academy has two pathways. The pathways are:

  1. COBie Certiied Professional(TM) Training
  2. COBie Implementation Courses

The COBie Certiied Professional(TM) Training pathway must be taken sequentially. COBie Implementation Courses may be taken at any time, in any order.


These courses will help you learn the details of the COBie standard and prepare for the "COBie Certified Professional(TM)" examination offered by the United States Institute of Building Documentation. This pathway consists of three courses that must be completed in the following order:

  1. COBie As-Designed
  2. COBie As-Built
  3. COBie Quality Control

Students must register and successfully complete each course in the order as specified above if they wish to move to the next course in the sequence.


COBie implementation courses are for those implementing COBie but not necessarily preparing for the "COBie Certified Professional(TM)" exam. These courses may be completed in any order.  In early 2019 we will be releasing the "COBie ScoreCard(TM)" course.  In late 2019 and into 2020 we will be releasing "Delivering COBie using Revit" and "Lean Handover(TM)."

COBie Certified Professional(TM) Training


If you need hands-on experience implementing and delivering COBie, these courses are for you. These courses were developed based on the experience of designers, builders, and owners who currently delivery COBie on their projects. These courses will provide you an orientation to COBie and then dive right into getting the job done, leaving some of the technical details of the COBie standard to your local COBie Subject Matter Expert or "COBie Certified Professional(TM)". You may take these courses in any order. 

COBie ScoreCard(TM) (Coming in January 2019)

Implementing COBie during design and construction requires the participation of people in your firm, and your business partners and stakeholders. Do you have plan to keep you from having scramble to recreate COBie data at the end of every project? How will you ensure that success on one COBie pilot project is lost when the next person starts a the next project? The COBie ScoreCard(TM) helps you develop an enterprise-wide project management. The COBie ScoreCard(TM) also shows how embed the real-time capture of as-built data within measurable quantities that can managed across an entire campus or portfolio.

Delivering Design COBie in Revit (Coming in January 2020)

Have or are you the person tasked to "fix" a Revit model to deliver COBie data? Why not learn how to deliver COBie data during the design process? Why not do it right the first time? In this course, you will take a set of existing drawings and models and learn to back-fill COBie data in Revit. Become your local Revit-to-COBie expert. Expand your opportunities.
