P6 PPM 3 Day Workshop

HPS Familiarisation Tour

Whether you’re just starting out with a new Primavera system or you’ve upgraded an existing system to the latest version your top priority is to configure the software to suit the way you run your business, and to ensure your team can use it properly.

That’s why we specialise in a three (3) day interactive workshop built around PMI-accredited training materials created by Paul Harris, the highly respected author of the popular book Project Planning and Control using Oracle Primavera P6.

We feel that the traditional Oracle training courses, which are modularised and have to be generic, may not focus on your particular requirements. The HPS Familiarisation Workshop can be precisely tailored to suit your requirements providing a significantly more effective way to transfer knowledge and get you operational faster.

Within 3 days our experts will help you to get to grips with the way you want to use P6 PPM, in short a “fast track” to be operational.
