Welcome to 'Advanced Project Planning and Scheduling with Primavera P6' online training course. This course is brought to you by CEM Solutions, who are providing construction engineering and management services worldwide for about 10 years. This course is an ultimate solution for the people who want to learn advanced planning & scheduling concepts, together with their implementation on Primavera P6.
This course is uniquely designed to meet the requirements of an advanced-level planning engineer. Emphasis has been given to understanding the core planning concepts, rather than just developing a schedule. A schedule with no planning sense, will not only cause trouble in project controlling, but it’s also a question mark on the integrity of the planning engineer. This course is particularly beneficial for the ‘Engineering & Construction’ industry, but others can also use the concepts to schedule their projects.
This course is based on extensive research, real-world challenges, the experience of industry experts, and exercises based on actual projects. We have also included an extensive practice of using Microsoft Excel together with Primavera P6. This will not only speed up the scheduling process but will also aid in the management and accuracy of schedule data. The course also includes many templates, samples, tools, and other useful resources, which will help you a lot in your projects.
This course is an ultimate solution for the people looking for an advanced level planning & scheduling course. Also, if you have an upcoming interview, use this course to learn the concepts quickly and effectively.
