Managing Modifiable Documentation is designed to educate individuals in the complex world of modification rights, chain of custody and management of x-references of CADD and 3D Model files.
In the engineering sector, drawing files are always required. With the increase in concurrent engineering and the use of 3D Models, it is vital to understand how to manage these files.
Managing these files will also ensure that any document or drawing required during the continued facility maintenance or upgrade is available and controlled. This improves the integrity of the required data and will greatly reduce the amount of pre-work and/or re-work required on projects.
By learning these concepts, drawing controllers will be better equipped to ensure that concurrent processes are administered correctly and the safety of the design and modification increments are handled in a practical and legal manner.
- This course does not have prerequisites, students must however meet the recommendations and requirements in the Notes section along with any proficiencies identified below.
Courses are instructor-led, face-to-face and may be delivered in three formats:
- In Class - all classes are taught in a computer lab.
- Online - all classes are taught synchronously in real-time.
- Blended - delivery is both in a computer lab and synchronously online, alternating weekly.
It is the students responsibility to carefully read the course section content below to know which delivery options are available for the course they are registering into.
- Registrations within 24 hours of course start time must be made by phone (403-220-2988).

Recommendations and Requirements
Courses are 30 hours and are scheduled to be completed in either 5 weeks or 10 weeks. Generally, 5-week courses have two classes per week, and 10-week courses have one class per week.
Courses may be delivered in class, online, or blended (both in class and online). All delivery formats will use Desire2Learn (D2L) and Adobe Connect Meeting (ACM) tools to varying degrees and it is the students responsibility to ensure they are comfortable with these tools prior to the start of the first class.
Students are encouraged to read Student Online Learning Resources to determine the delivery format that will best meet their learning needs.
- Students familiar with D2L and ACM from previous course work require no further introduction to these learning tools.
- Students who register into an in class only course section and who are unfamiliar with D2L and ACM learning tools are recommended to take the necessary time to fully explore these learning tools prior to the start of class.
- Students who register into an online or blended course section and who are unfamiliar with D2L and ACM learning tools are recommended to take BMC 352 Learning Online.
For online and blended delivery, students should have access to their own computer with required software, Internet connection, a headset with speakers and microphone, webcam, and a monitor large enough to display multiple applications (or the use of two monitors). Students should test their environment prior to the start of class to ensure everything is working properly.
- There is no special software required.
- There are no textbooks required.
It is strongly recommended that students attend every class. It is the responsibility of the student to communicate potential absenteeism to the instructor.
