Training is a necessity, but so is saving time and money. That’s what Global PM’s state-of-the-art virtual training will do for you! Students anywhere in the world can attend our in-person training classes (taught by a live instructor), using a cutting-edge internet conferencing infrastructure.

You will feel like you are there in person as you view your Oracle certified instructor and his screen, ask him questions, interact with the other attendees, and complete class exercises using Primavera P6 and the training manual that was sent to you prior to training.

Our training solution offers hands-on training, just as if you were in Global PM’s training lab. You only need a computer, phone (or PC with a mic and speakers), and an internet connection. Primavera P6 software will be accessed by the student via a secure link over the internet.

The benefits
  • Save time and money
  • Eliminate the need for travel
  • Train multiple employees in multiple locations simultaneously
  • No software installation required. You will access P6 via Global PM’s cloud training server!
The Timeline
  • Easy to follow “set-up instructions” are emailed to the students upon registering for a class
  • A printed Primavera P6 training manual is shipped to each student upon registering for a class
  • Students are provided a link for accessing Primavera software (No installation required)
  • 15 minutes prior to training, students connect to the classroom/instructor
  • The instructor shares his desktop with the class and uses P6 for demonstrations
  • The instructor will monitor and assist as you work through problems
  • Students can even share their screen with the instructor and classmates (optional) to get feedback.
