The Importance of Data

The Importance of Data


Course duration: 1 hour

This course will describe the importance of data during all stages of a built asset lifecycle. Data is shared, managed and created across a project, and the accuracy and validity of the data is crucial for an intelligent project to be undertaken. Clearly defining the data that is required—across all stages of a project—requires planning and thought, and this course will explain how this can be achieved.

To get the most out of this course, we strongly recommend you review every topic within the course, and use all the learning styles to ensure you retain the important information within. We also encourage you to take tests to ensure you have retained the knowledge.

e-Training Course Navigation Strategies:

Beginners: Complete the course in order from beginning to end. Once any topic is completed, you will have full access to it at any time for one year after registration, to use as a resource.

Intermediate/Advanced Users: Use the course as a flexible resource tool to find what you need, whenever you need it. Try the assessment tests first, if you get 80% you can move to the next level, if you get less than 80% you should complete the lecture. This gives you a pre and post assessment score, which can be used to track your skills improvement.

Helpdesk Support is available when you have a question- just email Support.
