(pronounced kuhn-VEHR-sehnt)

If you can hold a conversation on a subject, then you (hopefully) know something about the topic of which you are speaking. Therefore, if you are conversant with a subject, then you have experience or knowledge with it. Capisce?

Example: Lori had quickly become conversant with all aspects of Building Information Modeling — so much so that she was now conducting all of the training sessions for the new employees.
