Bluebeam Elite Training Agenda by Orange Blade Consultants


605-foot tall Space Needle was completed in December 1961 and officially opened four months later on the first day of the World's Fair, April 21, 1962  - Walking distance from the training site.

Mount Rainier is the highest mountain in Washington and the Cascade Range. Located just east of Eatonville and just southeast of Seattle and Tacoma, Mount Rainier is ranked third of the 128 ultra-prominent mountain peaks of the United States. You don't walk from the training site to Mt. Ranier - trust us on this.

This 2-day training session is for the Windows version of Bluebeam Revu (not the Mac version of Revu)

    What certification would you receive at the Elite Training?

      Hi Brett,
      Upon completion of day 2, students receive a certificate of completion for the 2-day course. Day 1 is based loosely on the Bluebeam Certified training curriculum, but we don’t follow BCI verbatim for this particular course.
