Live Instructor-led Virtual Training

Our Virtual training options are typically 8 hours long, and includes time at the end to allow time for questions and one-on-one time with the instructor. 

Sessions are broken up into several lectures with corresponding hands-on exercises, and include three breaks. The instructor will explain and demonstrate functions in P6 using video conferencing software, and then the students will be asked to do an exercise in P6. Our virtual courses include access to P6 through our learning environment, so there’s no need to download the software!
