Course Description

This course covers the fundamentals for creating a project in Primavera P6.  The course objectives cover all of the basic scheduling concepts to successfully develop a project schedule, ranging from small to mega projects.

The course content applies all of the P6 releases from Version 8.3 onwards.

If you are a Project Manager, Project Scheduler, Project Controller, Engineer, Cost Controller, or anyone else who wishes to learn the fundamentals of P6, then this course is for you. All relevant reference material will be available for download.

You could also be migrating your skills from one of the other Planning Software Packages and want to get up and running quickly in Primavera P6.

You will find that the principles of scheduling you will learn in this course follow the guidelines for the DCMA 14-point Schedule Assessment Checking. This is often a pre-requisite of many companies today.

As with all of my courses, I provide a comprehensive real-life exercise (that I have personally worked on) for students to complete in their own time. Answers to exercise questions will be provided in the final session. I encourage all students to complete the exercise.

If you would like an eBook (90 pages) for this course, details will be provided in the Bonus Learning Section at the end of the course.
