Students have been asking me for years for an Advanced course on Primavera P6, and now I'm delivering!
Contractors are tasked with crafting more and more complex schedules. There is nothing intuitive about this - it takes experience, skill and knowledge to understand what goes into a robust schedule.
I've tried to my best to make this course one that reflects today's REAL WORLD scheduling needs. That's why I've got drawings, an estimate, bid documents and even report templates from which we can build a real schedule.
Join me and learn what it takes to master Advanced Schedule Building in Primavera P6.
