About this Course
What will you learn in this course?

This course covers the basic skills and concepts necessary to start using InfraWorks 360 to design and present proposals for urban infrastructure projects. The concepts include those related to InfraWorks 360, as well as those related to civil engineering and topography in general. It does not cover all the themes or all the features of InfraWorks 360, but it provides a solid foundation that you can use to perform basic tasks. These fundamentals can serve as a starting point to learn more advanced skills and work towards a deeper understanding of InfraWorks 360.

Who should take this course?

This course can be taken by anyone who needs or wants to start learning InfraWorks 360. It is designed to be used in a formal class environment, in your office or home learning on your own and in all intermediate places. It is appropriate for ages ranging from students of a career related to the construction area to people who are already retired in this area, and although it is intended for those who do not have any experience or skill with InfraWorks 360, it can also be useful as a great resource to update or complement the knowledge base of this program.

Here are some specific examples of people who would benefit from taking this course:

Any person involved in the planning or preliminary design stages of infrastructure or land development projects.
Students of architecture, civil engineering, geographic information systems or something related to the construction area that are looking for an educational track related to design.
Employees who have recently joined a company that uses InfraWorks 360
Employees working for companies that have recently implemented InfraWorks 360
Experienced InfraWorks users who are self-taught and who want to fill gaps in their knowledge base
Civil 3D users since both programs are compatible and complementary to each other.
What is covered in this course?

This course is organized to provide you with the necessary knowledge to master the basics of InfraWorks 360:

Section 1: Brief introduction explaining the scope, objectives, topics and ways of working in this course.
Section 2: Model creation demonstrates how to build a 3D model of existing terrain conditions within the project area area using the Model Builder or geospatial data that is accessed. You will learn about coordinate systems and about importing and configuring data from various sources.
Section 3: Creating designs demonstrates how to develop an InfraWorks model by adding elements and proposals. You will study the design of InfraWorks main features such as roads, roofs and buildings.
Section 4: Detailing models demonstrates how to add details and realism to InfraWorks models by including more elements. You will study points of interest, trees, water components, barriers, pipes and street furniture.
Section 5: Display styles demonstrates how to take advantage of styles to make InfraWorks model elements appear the way we want them to be displayed. Material styles, material groups, coverage styles, highway styles, facade styles and style rules will be studied.
Section 6: Presentation of models demonstrates the use of InfraWorks tools to present design ideas. The visualization part, configurations, screenshots, scene representation and construction of storyboards will be studied.
Section 7: Analysis demonstrates the use of InfraWorks tools to answer questions about your design. Measurement tools, visual analysis techniques, terrain analysis, feature analysis and light and shadow analysis will be studied.
Section 8: Collaboration demonstrates how to use InfraWorks 360 to configure a collaboration environment and how to publish information to share with other users. You will practice how to configure InfraWorks 360 groups, publish models and share scenarios.

What does study method mean?

Study method describes the format in which the course will be delivered. At courses are delivered in a number of ways, including online courses, where the course content can be accessed online remotely, and classroom courses, where courses are delivered in person at a classroom venue.

What are CPD hours/points?

CPD stands for Continuing Professional Development. If you work in certain professions or for certain companies, your employer may require you to complete a number of CPD hours or points, per year. You can find a range of CPD courses on, many of which can be completed online.

What is a ‘regulated qualification’?

A regulated qualification is delivered by a learning institution which is regulated by a government body. In England, the government body which regulates courses is Ofqual. Ofqual regulated qualifications sit on the Regulated Qualifications Framework (RQF), which can help students understand how different qualifications in different fields compare to each other. The framework also helps students to understand what qualifications they need to progress towards a higher learning goal, such as a university degree or equivalent higher education award.

What is an ‘endorsed’ course?

An endorsed course is a skills based course which has been checked over and approved by an independent awarding body. Endorsed courses are not regulated so do not result in a qualification - however, the student can usually purchase a certificate showing the awarding body’s logo if they wish. Certain awarding bodies - such as ABC Awards and TQUK - have developed endorsement schemes as a way to help students select the best skills based courses for them.
