BigPicture training Q&A
Is this more Jira or BigPicture training?
The training is intended to focus on BigPicture, a Jira app (or addon or plug-in). But as our trainer is both a Jira Cerified Administrator, a coder and an experienced project manager, he will surely answer any Jira-related questions.
How early should I schedule my training?
We recommend that you contact email@example.com at least 2 weeks in advance of on-line training or 4 weeks, if on-site.
How should I prepare for BigPicture training?
You may well be a greenhorn – the majority of our trainees are! But may we suggest that you click through BigPicture before training. An hour or so would do. The app is available free of charge on a 30-day trial.
How long does the training course last?
The course is scheduled for around 8 hours per day, to include regular rest breaks throughout. One- or two-day variants are available.
Does a shorter BigPicture training option exist?
Yes, there are two shorter options:
- A one-hour training (demo) with a Support Team member. E-mail firstname.lastname@example.org to schedule one. This is a Webex-based demo so you can discuss issues and be able to share screens,
- or: you may use BigPicture tutorials on our YouTube channel as well as the BigPicture user guide on Atlassian Confluence.
You might also try to learn, at least the Gantt module, by yourself. Gantt tutorials and thoughts on self-learning.
Are reviews of the BigPicture training available?
Below are a few excerpts from post-training e-mails from clients.

On-line vs on-site training
They last about the same time, 1 or 2 days:
- The Webex online training tends to be cheaper and there is no need for get-togethers. To give you an example, we had this sort of training session delivered to people connecting from San Mateo, CA, San Diego, CA and Missouri at the same time.
- The on-site variant is when our trainer travels to a client. This is more expensive, but we consider this option more efficient too.
