Check Out The Computer Skills You Should Have Before You Come To Class

Oracle Primavera Project Management applications are sophisticated. The training is directed at students who have access to the software. Be that as it may, many students come to class intent on changing careers or finding a position in the scheduling community. Quite a few are successful.

For the benefit of the class, we try to ensure all students have the computer skills to navigate the class materials. Students familiar with Excel or spreadsheets do well in class because many of the tasks required in class are consistent with Excel usage.
