Course Overview

This course covers much of the same content as our Microsoft Project: Getting Started course but is for individuals who already have a good understanding of project management and have some experience with Microsoft Project. Students will learn to work with calendars, create, enter and link tasks, create and work with resources, and to manage projects in Project.

Our public classes use the most current version of the software, but if you’re on an earlier version, our instructor will point out any differences. For private classes, we will use the version of the software you use in your office.
