This study presents an institution-industry collaboration model for BIM training with a case study of a TVET college in Vietnam. The model focuses on the most needed and practical skills to fit with the actual requirements of the labour market. It also helps to educate BIM technicians that meet the industry standards in a reasonable training time. In consultation with the industrial partners, the College defined six learning outcomes and 18 competencies for the BIM program to ensure that students can perform the BIM technician job when finishing the program. The findings present the benefits of the collaboration training model that could provide a better learning environment for students and help to narrow the gap between educational outcomes and industry needs. Furthermore, a questionnaire survey was conducted targeting the industrial partners and graduated students to assess the importance of the designed competencies. Feedback from the participants shows that collaboration and self-development skills are the most critical skills for the BIM technicians, so the BIM program should develop related courses aligned with the learning outcomes.
