  • P6 Training

We offer our courses in a Condensed and Regular format. Condensed training provides experienced students with a faster-paced environment to learn the same content in a shorter period of time. CPM instructors continually strive to help participants understand concepts and techniques for using Primavera P6, but less time is spent covering topics in the Condensed course format. If you want more time with the instructor, register for courses in the Regular format to learn P6 at a slower pace that is comfortable and convenient.
