Primaned has decades of experience with the implementation and training in the use of Primavera. This training has been developed together with our planning engineers and technical consultants. Good planning is much more than just “bar racking”. In this module you will learn how to properly handle the software, also what a planner needs to be able to make a good planning. You will learn how to create a project yourself, including activities, relationships, schedules, resources and progress, based on a case that is interwoven with the manual we have written.

This module is part of the step Tooling from the Project Controls Programme.

This training can be followed remote and in a classroom. Please indicate your preferences on the registration form. Read about the plan of remote training.

Software version

Oracle Primavera P6 Professional R.20.12.3. is used in this course.
This module is also suitable for newer releases and older versions from 8.X.

Preliminary training

This training can be followed separately, without specific prior knowledge. However, it is recommended that you have a good command of the theory of Critical Path Method & Scheduling Best Practices (critical path method). This training can also be followed as part of the Scheduling Engineer training.


After completing this module you will receive a Primaned Academy certificate.

  • Primavera P6 and the Longest Path

    There is more to showing THE Critical Path in Primavera than your project manager can imagine.

In order to achieve this Primavera P6 uses the concept of “Global” data objects and “Project” (or embedded) […]
