Where can you learn Primavera P6?
Primavera P6 courses run all around the world, in all sorts of languages. You are bound to be able to find a class near you.
If, for any reason, you cannot find a local Primavera P6 training course, or you would prefer to study from your own home or office, then you have another option: online classes. These days, many training providers, including ourselves, offer fully remote Primavera classes, either with an instructor or as a self-paced option.
Primavera P6 online training
Here are some of the benefits of online Primavera P6 training:
- You can study wherever you like, so if you can’t travel to a class, it doesn’t matter
- You can take advantage of lower fees, as typically online courses are cheaper than in-person courses
- You still (for some classes) get access to a live tutor so you can ask questions and get the most out of student interaction
- You often have recorded materials to learn from when you return to work.
This last point is one of the reasons why online training offers a fantastic option for learning Primavera P6 step by step because you can go back over the training videos and watch them again. Whether you have a live course where the sessions are recorded for your future use, or an on-demand course, video training means you can dive into a subject again if you didn’t grasp it the first time round or need a refresher when you get back to work.
You can take fewer notes in class because you know you have the materials to refer to whenever you need to.
Ten Six offers an online training course you can start right away. Starting with Primavera P6 Professional Fundamentals, and moving on to Scheduling Best Practice Guidelines for Primavera P6, you will be supported from the first time you log in through to developing advanced practitioner skills.
Primavera P6 advanced training
If you are looking for Primavera P6 advanced training near you, it might be harder to find a specialist in-person course, simply because there is likely to be less demand for the advanced topics. You may have to travel to get to a training course or wait a while until one becomes available in your area.
An alternative is to sign up for an advanced Primavera P6 online course for Primavera P6 which would cover exactly what you need to know to operate at an expert user level. Our training, for example, is based on the topics most requested by thousands of Ten Six customers. The advanced Primavera P6 training doesn’t cover what we think you should know; it covers what people like you want to know in order to be able to efficiently do their jobs. It’s a highly practical, focused deep-dive into the features that power users value in the real world.
Regardless of the training provider, that’s why it is important to check the syllabus for any expert-level course you sign up to, just to make sure that the content is truly going to cover the topics most relevant for you and where you are now with your Primavera education.
Considerations for choosing a course
When you are thinking about where to learn Primavera P6, here are 4 considerations for making your choice.
1. How to get there
First, consider how easy it will be to get to the training location. Now, if you plan to join an online course, you’ll have zero commute to the training facility, so this consideration isn’t a big deal for you. But if you do have to travel to attend the training, consider how long it will take to do the journey and what the journey will be like. The more stressful the journey, the more likely it is that you might take a while to wind down to be able to fully participate in the class, so factor that in to your timings.
If you are joining an online Primavera P6 training course from home, how are you going to manage distractions? Think about how best to communicate to your family that you are online with an instructor and cannot be disturbed.
Whether you are participating in a classroom setting or online, think about how you will manage distractions from work: phone calls, emails, pings and notifications. Set your out of office messages and make sure your colleagues know that you might be slower to respond than usual.
Consider the timings for the class you want to join. This is less of a consideration for in-person courses because they are more likely to be local to you and in your time zone. However, if you are opting for evening or weekend courses, then spend a moment thinking about how tired you might be after doing your day job – is that really the most conducive environment for learning?
If you are signing up to online live instructor-led Primavera P6 classes, then make sure you choose a course in a convenient time zone.
It’s hard to study while you are half asleep after getting up early, or having worked a full day already! You want to be at your best during your learning to get the most out of the course, so factor in when the classes are happening.
4. Who is teaching
Finally, consider who is leading your course. While it might be cheaper to sign up to an online class from a provider in another country, make sure you are double-checking quality, language and appropriateness so you get the best possible experience for your training. Look for experienced tutors who have used the tool in real life and not just in a classroom. Look for training providers who develop their own course content instead of teaching the ‘off-the-shelf’ vendor packages.
These considerations all factor into your decision about how to learn Primavera P6 and where to join from.
