Welcome, this 8-hour course is designed to familiarize students with a combination of basic and intermediate skills required to use the features and functionality of both Microsoft Project Professional 2013 & 2016 to manage and track project schedules.
We'll provide an overview of the Project interface followed by a look inside to understand the views, tables, groups, and other elements available with the tool. From there we'll perform the steps required to build a successful project schedule: definition, task, resource and assignment planning, followed by project execution.
The course covers quite a bit of material via both lecture and plenty of hands-on exercises.
Program managers, project managers, planners, schedulers, and any individuals that need to create or maintain schedules in Microsoft Project.
Provided with the Course
