Event Details


This series consists of four sessions: June 16, June 18, June 23, and June 25. Participants must attend all four sessions. 

Microsoft Project Professional is the industry leading Project Management tool, and understanding how to use it is vital to every professional. This class covers all the tools a Project beginner needs, from developing project schedules, assigning resources, and editing timelines, all the way through sharing and outputting the Project for real-world use/update. The class addresses concepts of Critical Patch Methodology, setting Milestones, and updating timetables and workloads throughout the Project lifecycle.

Students will learn the tools they need in order to use MS Project on real-world jobs. This eight (8) hour course is delivered in four (4), two-hour long sessions that students can attend online, right from their own desk. A live instructor will explain the detailed functions, and address questions as the class progresses.
