Primavera P6 Advanced Training

Primavera P6 Advanced Training


This course builds off skills learned in the P6 Basics course, exploring more in-depth topics in Primavera P6 v. 17. Topics include codes (project, activity, & resource), user defined fields, global change, earned value analysis, duration types, importing and exporting project data, and percent complete types. Attending Primavera P6 Basic training prior to attending this course is recommended. Attendees may use P6 release 6-17 for exercises.

*Save $200 if the Advanced P6 course (Th-F) is taken with the P6 Basic course (M-W). To register for both Basic and Advanced P6 courses, please click here.
