P6 Training in 4 Countries in 4 Days

WorldThis week Primavera Scheduling trained clients in four countries in four days. We started with clients in the United States, followed by the United Kingdom, Canada, and finally, Abu Dhabi. These were all live online Primavera P6 training sessions. We try very hard to accommodate clients anywhere in the world. More importantly, we are probably the only Primavera training firm that provides live training on demand. Need online P6 training right away? Call us! We do not make you wait a month or more for a class to be scheduled. If you do not see a class on our calendars that meets your needs please call us and we will make every effort to meet your schedule.

We will also throw down this challenge: call any other Primavera training firm on a weekend and see if they answer the phone! Not only do we answer the phone, we train on weekends.

While we are currently developing a video P6 training series we will always offer live online training as another option. Being able to ask the instructor questions or spend more time on one subject or another are clear advantages over videos. Of course, we have many in-person sessions as well. Please call us for more details – any day of the week!

Have You Visited our YouTube Channel?

Our YouTube channel contains several short videos explaining some of the features of Primavera P6 such as creating portfolios, lookahead filters and baselines. These videos were recorded using the same GoToMeeting software that we use in our live online training programs. However, we do not use any videos in our online training. These classes are always live! The YouTube videos are intended to provide snippets of our training programs only.

Here is the link to our YouTube channel:

Nevertheless, we are exploring the option of offering our 4-hour Primavera P6 Quick Start training program in a video format. This would be a series of roughly 15 video lessons that would cover the same subject matter as our live Quick Start P6 program, with the option to call us with any questions up to 30 days later.

My feeling is that our Primavera P6 Quick Start program is an introduction to P6 that would translate well to video lessons. And by making it available on video, clients could access the lessons online whenever they want. I really enjoy teaching the online classes because it is a great opportunity to meet people. Still, the videos would be very convenient.

We are exploring a couple of pricing models for the Primavera P6 Quick Start video program:

  • $200 for access to the online videos, but no live follow-up support
  • $300 for access to the online videos, with 30 days of live support

Our live Primavera P6 Quick Start program is $300, by the way. There will most likely be a limit to accessing the videos online to ensure than the videos are not being watched by people who did not purchase the program. For example, we might have a “time bank” whereby each lesson can only be viewed twice.

So, what do you think? I’d love to hear your thoughts!
