Use Microsoft Project to fully define a project from beginning to end.

This fundamental 2-day course provides you with hands-on skills to plan and manage project activities using Microsoft Project. Each participant is situated in front of a computer. By leading participants through a series of progressive exercises, participants learn how to use Microsoft Project (MSP) as it is used on real projects. Our unique instructional methodology ensures that those with slower typing skills are not left behind. By course completion, participants have fully defined a project from beginning to end, and will have performed project updates and reporting.
