InfraWorks training course for beginners, teaching key techniques for infrastructure design and urban planning.
InfraWorks 3D design and engineering software provides a comprehensive, real-world solution for your infrastructure design and urban planning. It offers easy integration with Civil 3D, Revit Structure and other applications, and supports BIM workflows.
Our InfraWorks Essentials course is ideal for civil engineers, planners and others who need to create preliminary infrastructure and urban designs and proposals, incorporating a wide variety of data. The techniques covered include:
- Modelling your project’s existing environment, incorporating survey-grade 2D/3D details and GIS data.
- Designing roads, bridges, drainage, and more, incorporating engineering principles.
- Analyzing your model, to make better decisions for sight distance, flood simulation, and more.
- Communicating your 3D site plan proposals for faster approvals.
- Show your designs in a realistic environment by creating high-impact visualisations and videos using storyboards.
InfraWorks Essentials training is available on-request only, i.e. one-to-one training or a ‘closed’ course for your group. We don’t currently offer scheduled (public) InfraWorks courses. We can host the training at one of our centres, or your venue anywhere in the UK. Please contact us for a quote.
As we’d be hosting this course exclusively for you/your group, the training can be tailored to take into account any existing knowledge you have, and the work you’re going to be doing in InfraWorks.
A cut-down, one-day course is available covering just the techniques you want to learn.
Accredited InfraWorks training
Armada is an Autodesk Authorised Training Centre (ATC), and our InfraWorks courses are accredited by Autodesk.
InfraWorks courses are hosted by Philip Madeley, an Autodesk Certified Instructor, industry expert and Fellow of the Chartered Institution of Civil Engineering Surveyors.
How will I learn?
InfraWorks training is hands-on and practical.
Our trainer teaches the necessary theory, then demonstrates techniques step-by-step. You then practice the techniques taught on a computer running InfraWorks.
There is plenty of time to ask questions, and you can take away all the files you create.
Training guide and certificate
Course delegates receive:
- A comprehensive training guide for InfraWorks, to refer to throughout the course, and to use as a refresher afterwards.
- An e-certificate confirming successful completion of an accredited InfraWorks training course. This is emailed to delegates directly from Autodesk. Click here to see an example of the certificate you receive.
After course support
Following InfraWorks training, delegates are entitled to 30 days’ email support from their InfraWorks trainer to help with any post-course issues. For further details, see Support.
Delegates must have a working knowledge of an Autodesk CAD application, such as AutoCAD or Civil 3D. If you don’t have this knowledge, we recommend you attending AutoCAD Essentials training first.
A good understanding of civil engineering concepts, and/or a GIS application is beneficial but not essential.
Training can be based on any recent version of InfraWorks to suit you.
Standard course times are 9.30am–4.30pm.
As we’d be hosting this course for you/your group, there’s usually flexibility to change these to suit you, e.g. start or end 30 minutes earlier or later.
Payment for InfraWorks training can be made bank transfer or card. View training course payment options.
We accept purchase orders from UK-registered companies.

InfraWorks courses are hosted by Philip Madeley.
Philip is a time-served Civil Engineering Surveyor. He has over 35 years’ experience of working with maps, survey data and surface models, and he’s been a member of the Chartered Institution of Civil Engineering Surveyors for 30 years, 18 as a Fellow.
For the last 20 years, Philip has concentrated on delivering training and providing consultancy in civil engineering design systems. He is a long-standing Autodesk-accredited instructor who focuses on GIS applications, primarily InfraWorks, Civil 3D and AutoCAD Map 3D.
Philip’s approach to training is practical. He loves to utilise his knowledge and experience to show delegates how they can make best use of the software on their own projects.
Away from training, Philip’s interests are photography, and watching rugby and cricket. He also does voluntary work, and describes himself as an all-round lover of life.
