Microsoft Project is a powerful application which needs to be set up and run properly. So learning from "ground up" in a structured way is essential.
You start by learning how to use the Project interface and create a simple project plan with tasks, dependencies, constraints and deadlines.
You then move on to adding resources, calendars and costs, and assigning them to tasks. You then learn to format the plan, use a Gantt Chart, and print out the plan to professional standards.
You will now have a solid foundation for understanding Project and using the software to create solid and resilient project plans.
The Advanced course takes you to a level that will put you in complete control of your projects.
You'll learn about importing and exporting data, about advanced scheduling and calendar options, and advanced resource allocation.
We'll show you how to work with multiple projects, customizing fields, tables, views and filters, and creating custom project reports.
Microsoft Project is an incredibly powerful application, and with the benefit of our two courses, you will have more awareness, control ... and general expertise ... than you thought possible.
Project Management skills are all about setting up realistic plans, then monitoring them and reacting to change.
To do this properly with projects of any size, you need a specialist software application that's easy to understand and use. And Microsoft Project gives you exactly that.

You have total flexibility ... you can work through all the course content so you have a thorough knowledge from start to finish. Or treat the content as your "library" - to refer to and learn as you need.
Either way, you'l find all our courses easy to watch and available 24/7 to upgrade your Microsoft Project skills.
