This course follows on from my Primavera P6 Beginners Course. The Course Objectives cover the fundamental steps bring your skills up to Intermediate Level. The concepts taught in the course will apply to the schedule development of small to mega projects.
The course content applies all of the P6 releases from Version 8.3 onwards. It is designed to be viewed in conjunction with Primavera P6 which is available as a demo download from the Oracle website.
If you are a Project Manager, Project Scheduler, Project Controller, Engineer, Cost Controller, or anyone else who wishes to upgrade their Primavera P6 skills, then this course is for you.
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.
It is preferable, but not essential that the Primavera P6 for Beginners course has been completed because much of the scheduling material would have already been developed by the student. All relevant reference material will be available for download, as well as the required XER project file.
As with all of our courses, we provide a comprehensive real-world exercise (that we have personally worked on) for students to complete in their own time. Answers to exercise questions will be provided in a final session. We encourage all students to complete the exercise
