Primavera P6 Professional Schedule Planning Foundation 2 Day

At HPS we pride ourselves on having a CIPD qualified trainer with over 20 years Hyde Park Solutions Training Academyof 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 P6 Professional: Schedule Planning Foundation training course covers EPPM and is run over 2 days in London, Manchester, Warwick, Leeds, Bristol, Edinburgh or another location of your choice.


This Primavera P6 Professional Schedule Planning Foundation training course costs as little as £775 for the two days including all course material and upon successful completion a Hyde Park Solutions Training Academy Certificate.

Schedule Planning Foundation is the recommended first of planning, scheduling and resource management workshops. The workshop begins with the explanation of the EPS (Enterprise Project Structure) ie – where your projects live due to organisation purposes, and access rights, and discusses the different data types within the P6 tool ie Global Data and Project Specific Data.

Delegates get ‘hands-on’ to the software very quickly and this two-day course lays the foundations for new users. Working in teams and led by an experienced CIPD qualified P6 trainer with 20yrs of experience, the delegates will initially navigate around an existing P6 plan to gain insight into the functionality of the tool.

They will then create a realistic schedule in P6 by creating a new project, building a Work Breakdown Structure – WBS (which are the deliverables) and adding activities to the schedule. Also, the delegates will gain an understanding of the values of using activity codes (MS Project doesn’t have these) and how to create calendars and notebook topics, as well as using activity steps to break down activities in to a ‘to do’ list.

After adding relationships (dependencies) to their plan, the next step would be to understand the CPM:  Critical Path Method of scheduling, the importance of reviewing the schedule log to view results and detect errors in the plan, and how to assign both project and activity constraints, and manage multiple projects. The course also involves optimising, or fixing any errors in the plan.

Throughout the initial generic workshops and exercises, the labs will then be tailored to each individual delegate’s own industry, enabling them to create a bespoke P6 project plan related to their own specific working environment.
