Primavera P6 Fundamentals PPM Training

At HPS we pride ourselves on having a CIPD qualified trainer with over 20 years of experience. A  training environment that is very relaxed and friendly, with inter-active quizzes at the end of each day.   There is also an End-of-Course Summary exercise to consolidate everything that you, the delegates have learned.  It’s not a formal test but more of a summary of what you will have learnt. This Primavera P6 Fundamentals PPM training course covers P6 PPM and is run over 3 Days in London, Manchester, Warwick, Leeds, Bristol, Edinburgh or another location of your choice.

This P6 Professional Project Management (PPM) training course costs as little as £1195 for the three days including all course material and upon successful completion a Hyde Park Solutions Training Academy Certificate.
