Moraine Park Technical College Civil Engineering/Structural instructor Jim Olson always tells his students that graduating doesn’t mean their education is over. He put this advice into action by recently receiving the Revit Architecture 2013 Certified Professional certification after passing the extensive exam.
Olson joined design professionals from around the world in late November when he attended Autodesk University’s annual conference and exhibition in Las Vegas, Nev. While there, Olson shared and passed ideas, worked with other participants to solve problems, and formed professional relationships. Olson also took and passed the Revit Architecture 2013 Certified Professional Exam while at the conference, gaining an industry-recognized credential.
“Technology and software are constantly changing how the architectural, engineering, and construction industries do business. As instructors, we need to bring those changes into our curriculum,” said Olson.
Olson, a Fond du Lac resident, has been teaching full-time at Moraine Park for the past six years. The information he gained from the Autodesk University conference and from taking the exam will be integrated into the courses in Moraine Park’s Civil Engineering/Structural Program.
