    Default Are there any Primavera certified trainers in NZ?

    Sorry if this is a bit off-topic, but it has to do with job prospects, so I hope this is the right forum.
    Are there any Primavera certified trainers in NZ? I've tried searching, but the nearest certified trainers I can find are based in Australia.
    I expect this thread to sink without trace, but any help would greatly appreciated.

    Also (if that's not enough), does anyone know what happens when material facts change during the ITA process? I have an EOI in 'selected' at the moment. However, in 4 months time I will move into the next age banding, so do I lose points? Similarly, my son will turn 17 in March, so will I need to get a police certificate for him (under 17 year-olds are exempt)?
    Thanks,
    John.

    Same goes for me. Sorry, don't know what one of them is !!!!
    On the other points, yes, your son will need a police check done and yes also about the points drop for age band. Personally, I wouldn't do anything yet on both counts as NZIS are pretty much on the ball and will tell you exactly what you have to provide when they ship your ITA out to you.

    Good luck

    Thanks for the replies.
    No-one is thick, the question 'what is Primavera' is valid, as I'm being over-optimistic posting a really really obscure query. (Sorry, but I don't know where else to ask at the moment).
    Primavera is a specialist software suite associated with project management (the same as SAP is specialist software for integrating business needs). Some of the prospective employers I've looked at require certification, and I was trying to find NZ-based training.

    Also thanks for the answer on my EOI query. So if I get an ITA and manage to return it before my birthday, will I still score maximum points, or does it get adjusted on my birthday? Sorry to keep on. I'm sure all will become clear when/if I get my ITA paperwork. I'm guessing it'll arrive sometime early in March (I was selected in December); am I being optimistic?

    Cheers,
    John.

    Hi John,

    From what I can tell, points really only matter in regards to being selected from the pool of EOI applicants. Once you are selected you are evaluated on the points you claimed, but since you were truthful with the points (you were in the lower age band at time of submission) I don't see why there would be an issue. Once selected, 100 points should be the same as 140 points. Depending on the cost, you may want to fire off the police check for your son as they tend to take a while, at least here in the US.

    Thanks for that.
    Yes, that seems to make sense. But what about if you only have 100 points to start? If you then lost 10 points on age during the process, you'd be below the 100 pool level mark. Hopefully this won't apply in my case, as I identified with a job on a shortage list, and my points went from 100 to 125. But I can't help worrying ............ :hopeso
