What is Microsoft Project Masterclass Training?

With this Microsoft Project Masterclass training course you can analyse your project information by using Gantt charts, graphs, tables and views and you can track how your project progresses, identifying what to do if it doesn't proceed to plan.

Microsoft Project Training

Using Microsoft Project, you can monitor and schedule your projects using resources such as people, equipment, time and money.

If you are new to project management you should also consider our 1-day Introduction to Project Management course - or something from our range of PRINCE2 Training Courses.

As well as our scheduled courses in Brighton, UKwe provide private and in-company MS Project courses. If you'd like to discuss this further - or to book a course, just give us a call on +44 (0)1273 622272.

Course Objectives

On completion of this training course, you will:

  • Understand the concepts of project planning using Microsoft Project
  • Know how to identify, organise and manage the tasks and resources required to complete a project under the constraints of time and cost to achieve a final project target.

Highly recommend the course. This will improve my work in so many ways.

Marc O'Shea - Exelis

Very comprehensive course by Jane. Learnt everything I wished and much more! Highly recommended course!

Oliver Perkins - Exelis

A very worthwhile course. Started on time. Presented efficiently and effectively by Jane. All planned items were covered and the additional personal interests of the delegates were also covered. I have used MS Project quite a bit and was very pleased to learn the newer version, short cuts and advanced techniques today.

Evelyn Edwards - ReNeuron

A well-structured and well-delivered course; I learnt a lot in a day and can't wait to start using MS Project now!

Donna McLaren - ReNeuron

Very good. 1-2-1 basis is definitely worth the money in terms of benefit and tailored approach. Thanks.
