Microsoft Project Masterclass Training

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.
