Do you want to be better at planning your projects? Then a course in Microsoft Project might provide the tools you need. With a basic course in Microsoft Project you will be able to create and manage project plans.
Using project examples we go through the various options for incorporating task dependencies and the constraints of the project. You will learn when and how to use the different tools that are appropriate in various phases of the project e.g. how to manage resource allocation and keep track of task progress.
In the course we include the timeline tool that will help to present a good overview and to share important milestones and deadlines. You also learn how to handle the changes that continually arises in any project.
The course is aimed at users of Project 2016, Project 2013, Project 2010 or Project as part of the Office 365.
You do not need to have previous experience with Project but we recommend that you show up in time on the day of the course, willing to learn, and we can promise you the best possible course experience.
