Scheduling in Oracle Primavera P6 for U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Projects

Most capital construction projects for the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) require a schedule in Primavera format. This schedule is the baseline from which all progress is measured, provides the foundation for Pay Applications, and is the integration point with USACE’s Quality Control System (QCS).
Those who successfully complete the training will receive a Certificate of Completion and Digital Credential. The certificate may be submitted to USACE as aiding in Scheduler Qualification.
