2016 was the best and most ambitious year yet for Prometheus Group University. We taught eight classes over eight months in two states and four countries. We also added two new courses: PM 201 and PG 101. Most importantly, we helped 103 attendees optimize their systems by teaching them actionable strategies and insights that they can use to do their jobs more efficiently.
2016 was a great year, and the success of PGU encouraged us to continue to expand in 2017. Next year we will be offering 12 North American classes and introducing two new courses: Mobile 101 and STO 101. Check out all classes and dates here.

Check out what some of our 2016 attendees have to say about Prometheus Group University:
This course [PM 201] gave me the knowledge to pursue changes for the better to our SAP-PM system. Anyone who has a plant lead role in managing SAP-PM data at their facilities should attend! - Adrian Barkley, PM 102, PM 201
The course gave me new ways to perform my job and improved my prior practices. - Jeremiah Greiner, Kuraray, PM 102
I can take many of the skills back with me and immediately implement them within my business. I love the product and the training makes it even better. I am looking forward to implementing what I have learned and learning even more. - Scott Sellars, PM 101, PM 102, and PM 201
Excellent course. It's hard to choose, but for me [the most valuable part] was setting up my variants to look at a particular data set. It is always time consuming for me to have to enter information in to various fields, and this course taught me the power of setting up a good variant. - Clifton Stringfield, PM 102
This exposed several opportunities for improvement in our system. - Allen Dye, Kuraray, PM 102
Here's what our PGU team has to say about Prometheus Group University:
As a trainer, PGU represents an excellent opportunity to share the successes and challenges of the customers we see from around the world. I love diving into the details of what SAP and Prometheus are capable of and how to drive best practices to become efficient and effective in their work place. Seeing the customers light up with new ideas and how to drive these successes in their own business is my favorite part of each course. - Justin Fox, Prometheus Senior Functional Consultant
My favorite thing about PGU is seeing all of the different perspectives people have and the different ways they utilize their systems. It's a great opportunity to learn from our customers and for our customers to learn from each other. I also enjoy getting to know our customers and hearing all of their maintenance jokes! - Al Matthews, Prometheus Functional Consultant
I really enjoyed the opportunity to meet our 2016 attendees, and understand how our PGU courses help them become more efficient in their roles. I look forward to expanding our course offerings in 2017, and to meeting you at a PGU soon! - Jenny Summer, Prometheus Services and PGU Manager
We are building off the momentum that 2016 brought for PGU and introducing two brand new courses in 2017: STO 101 and MBL 101.
STO 101: Planning, Scheduling, and Executing STOs in SAP PS and PM with Prometheus will cover end to end structuring and execution of shutdowns, turnarounds, and outages.
MBL 101: Mobilizing the Maintenance Workforce with Prometheus will be focused around the process of planning and implementing a mobile solution successfully.
In addition to the new courses, we are expanding the number and locations of classes offered to 12 courses hosted globally.
