|Retail Customer Service Training Lynda.com|
Retail customer service happens in a specific setting: supporting the sale or fulfillment of a physical product. Unlike a call center, in a retail scenario you get to meet customers face to face. It can be overwhelming, but it's a great opportunity to deliver fantastic customer service—the kind that gets you noticed by managers, and keeps customers coming back. It starts with a positive attitude, which leads to a good first impression. However, you can't guarantee customers will always be happy.
In this course, learn techniques to deal with upset customers, and show empathy with active listening. Instructor and customer service expert David Brownlee—the author of Rock Star Customer Service—also provides etiquette tips to ensure quality service at every point of interaction: from the moment customers walk in the door to keeping them happy while they're on hold.

|Revit Area Calculations Training Lynda.com|
Architects and designers are often tasked with calculating and reporting the sizes of the spaces within a project. Typically, a set of detailed area calculations following specific rules and guidelines—which are often set by building officials, leasing agents, and others—is required. If you need to make such calculations, you'll likely find that you need more precision than is possible with Revit rooms. In such cases, you need to use Revit area elements and area plans instead of rooms. Areas appear very similar to rooms, but they're separate elements with a unique purpose and workflow.
In this course, Paul F. Aubin explores the creation of area plans and areas, and discusses the workflow that enables them. Using these tools, see how you can group and quantify the spaces within a project, and create detailed and accurate calculations of all important areas. The resulting information can be presented graphically onscreen, printed, scheduled, reported, and exported as necessary to satisfy a variety of project stakeholders—those using Revit and those who don't. If you have found it difficult to capture the intricacies of area calculations in your Revit projects—or have only tried to do so using the room elements—then you owe it to yourself to give area elements a try.
|Revit Schedules Training Lynda.com|
Schedules—which display information extracted from the properties of different project elements—are the backbone of BIM. In this course, explore how to work with schedules in Revit. Focusing primarily on the "I" for information in BIM, instructor Eric Wing demonstrates how to drill into the Revit database and query data out of your models. Eric covers a few standard schedules such as door, window, and room schedules, and then dives into the specifics of Revit parameters, and how they relate to the underlying database that you have—perhaps, unknowingly—developed by virtue of modeling your project. He goes into creating blank schedules, material takeoffs, keynote legends, schedule keys, and more.
|Revit Structure 2016 Essential Training Training Lynda.com|
Learn how to create accurate foundation plans and framing plans, with details such as brace frames and trusses, with Revit Structure 2016.

This course caters to members with little to no experience with Revit, as well as more advanced users that want to just jump to a topic of interest and start from there. Either way, this comprehensive course will teach you what you need to know to master Revit Structure.
|Revit: Construction Modeling Tools Training Lynda.com|
If your job requires working on Revit models created by someone else, then you have probably run into situations where portions of the model need to be reworked. Perhaps you're a subcontractor or an interior designer who needs to accurately convey finishes. Traditionally tasks like these would require a good deal of time, but with the three unique construction modeling tools in Revit, you can now add the details and refinements you need without rebuilding the entire model. Paul F. Aubin shows how model elements can be broken down into parts and articulated with their own finishes, materials, and other details. To assist in documentation, Paul explores assemblies: detailed drawings of isolated portions of the model. And with the Displace feature he shows how to create compelling "exploded view" illustrations to convey how things fit together.
|Revit: Create Signage Plans Training Lynda.com|
Many medium- and large-scale architectural projects include signage. So why not produce signage plans in the software you already use for the rest of your BIM projects—Revit? This course explores creating simple signage plans using model text, custom families, and vector artwork from Illustrator or AutoCAD. Paul F. Aubin also teaches ways to create illuminated and curved signs, and shows how to document the design in its own package or as signage sheets as part of a larger construction document set. There is no need to leave Revit to create these kinds of deliverables. Learn to add signage documentation directly to your existing Revit workflow.
