Tips on using this forum..

(1) Explain your problem, don't simply post "This isn't working". What were you doing when you faced the problem? What have you tried to resolve - did you look for a solution using "Search" ? Has it happened just once or several times?

(2) It's also good to get feedback when a solution is found, return to the original post to explain how it was resolved so that more people can also use the results.

Dear All

I would appreciate if anyone can recommend me the sites where I can get online or web based training in using Primavera i.e. without attending classes and award certificates of competence after the training.

Thanks

Dear Raviraj

Thanks for your response. I have not earned my PDUs too since more than 2 years of being a PMP. I shall try the websites you mentioned later.

As for the free webminars, try IIL (International Institute for Learning, Inc) site as follows:

Dear Raviraj,

Subscription to the local chapeter cost = $20~30/ year
Cost of attending the local chapter meetings = Free

At least they will have 10 hours of meetings per year and you have to do is attend.

Best,

Samer

But then it cost too much (500 USD or more for earning 2-3 PDU’s)

With no new projects coming up in this area and so many projects being suspended in this geographical area, most of the guys are worried and wud not like to spend money on earning PDU’s at least this year.

I recall there were webinar to earn 1 PDU for each 1 hour presentation and that was free. Do u know the website by any chance??

Dear Raviraj,

If you attend the local chapter meetings, then you can get few PDUs each time. Also, you will have opportunities to check on courses and events that they have. Attending these, you will be able to get few more PDUs. You can get at least 10-15PDUs/ year easily if you attend all the events during the year.

Best,

Samer

Dear Samer

Thank you for your reply. As I am aspiring to get a formal certification for my credentials preferably with PDUs for my PMP, I am looking for official training providers. I forgot to mention earlier that I am looking for alternative to Primavera.

Dear MD,

If you post you email then I am sure that people with soft copies of educational material, will send you what you have.

Good luck,

Samer
