Primavera P6 Workforce Development

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 Workforce Development training course  is often referred to as P6 Professional Advanced (WDP) and run over 2 days in London, Manchester, Warwick, Leeds, Bristol, Edinburgh or another location of your choice.

So WDP is short for Workforce Development Programme because it combines both our P6 Fundamentals and P6 Advanced course over a weekend for your convenience – so you don’t loose a days billing.

This 2 day course is essentially a condensed version of the P6 Fundamentals 3-day course, and is designed to be run over a weekend. It is priced to appeal to contractors who are developing their skills and don’t want to lose a days billing by taking a course mid week.

This Primavera P6 workforce development training course costs as little as £545 for the two days including all course material and upon successful completion a Hyde Park Solutions Training Academy Certificate.
