There’s a Better Way To Learn Project Controls
Plan Academy, an online training company, produces and delivers online, on-demand training on Project Controls, software like Oracle Primavera P6 Professional and related applications for the project controls community. Plan Academy shares project controls advice and Primavera P6 tutorials on our blog. Plan Academy’s online training platform teaches students to build schedules from scratch using Oracle Primavera P6 software on a customized learning management system using professional videos, step-by-step tutorials and other rich media content.
Plan Academy began life back in 2011 as the Planner’s Tutorial Hub (PlannerTuts for short). Working as a Primavera P6 trainer for a number of years, I found there were gotchas in Primavera P6 that most people stumbled on and the workarounds needed to be shared. So I started a blog.
Those early blog posts were some of the first on the internet that focused on Primavera P6. And people were reading them, and finding them valuable (check the comments). There were hungry people out there starving to understand the nuances of Oracle’s P6 software and to know the solutions and workarounds to their Primavera P6 problems.
In February 2013, Plan Academy launched its first training product (then, PlannerTuts Premium), a series of written tutorials on various Primavera P6 topics. Quickly, PlannerTuts Premium evolved to focus on developing video training on Primavera P6 products. We invited trainers and experts from around the world to contribute to our training as well.
In April 2015, PlannerTuts was rebranded as Plan Academy, a name that truly captures our core purpose: “To help drive excellence in project controls through content that educates, informs and inspires.”
