Our Oracle Primavera class is designed to allow users and management to be pro-active in understanding the progress of the project relating to money and communication.

At Strategic Axis, we understand the time pressures routinely faced by project teams. Taking a full week out of the office to learn new software systems can be challenging when real projects are bidding for your attention.

This is why Strategic Axis has developed highly-streamlined Primavera P6 training classes that get to the point quickly and effectively. All of our courses follow a fast-track principle providing the knowledge you need in less time than the “vanilla” courses offered by our competitors.

Primavera P6 is a sophisticated system with vast capabilities. We won’t teach you everything it can do; we teach you everything you need to know. That’s the Strategic Axis difference!

Strategic Axis Primavera P6 training courses are thorough and succinct; structured to maximize learning by adopting an approach of explanation, demonstration and practice teaching. Whether you’re a visual, auditory or tactile learner, each topic is presented using techniques that are synchronous with your particular learning style.
