At Taradigm, we recognize the need for training that can fit in with your busy schedule, and a robust program like Primavera P6 is no exception. With that in mind we have developed P6 training options that are succinct and to the point. 

We have several options for different needs, all created in the spirit of ‘just-in-time’ training, so you can start using the software to enhance your day-to-day tasks with speed and efficiency, instead of letting the software slow you down.

Here’s what you can expect from Taradigm:

  • Our training options are developed in house to fit the needs of our clients
  • Our instructors are professional Primavera P6 Schedulers, and have over 10 years of experience in the field
  • Our P6 training options are designed to be completed in 1-2 days, with a live instructor, or through our self paced, hands-on course
  • Our training options are affordable and require no travel for you or your employees

 

Our P6 Training Options 

Our approach to P6 training is based on the number of students and their experience level. We offer Virtual open-enrollment training for smaller groups of beginners, an online self-paced course for individual beginners, and custom virtual or onsite training for groups of intermediate and advanced students. 

With all of our training options, you can expect to master the skills needed to build a project schedule from the ground up, in the most efficient way possible.

Virtual Instructor-led, Open-enrollment

Each month, one of our senior schedulers and instructors hosts a virtual online Primavera P6 Fundamentals course. This course covers P6 essentials and is intended for students who have never used Primavera P6. The course is 2 days long, and often concludes early the second day to allow time for questions and one-on-one time with the instructor. 

Each day is broken up into several lectures with corresponding hands-on exercises, and includes three breaks. Typically 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!

Self-paced, Hands-on 

Our most affordable and accessible P6 training option is our online, hands-on self-paced Primavera P6 Fundamentals course. This course is based on our virtual instructor led course, but is more streamlined, and structured to allow students to complete on their own time.

The course is taken on our website through our intuitive learning management system, and is broken up into lectures and exercises. The exercises allow students to experience P6 in their web browser through guided software simulations, which keeps students focused on the material and eliminates the need to troubleshoot the software. The course includes a final exam and a downloadable certificate of completion. A sample of the course is available here.

Custom P6 Training

For intermediate and advanced students we offer custom P6 training options so we can deliver the information and skills you need without taking up too much of your busy schedule. Our instructors are available to go on site, or host virtual classes. Custom courses can be anywhere from a couple hours to a couple days depending on your needs, and the material is based on a discovery call with one of our instructors. For more information on custom P6 training options  please reach out to us!
