Course Overview

This course will familiarize you with the basic features and functions of Microsoft Project so that you can use it effectively and efficiently in a real-world environment. You will develop the critical knowledge and skills you need to create a project plan with Project during the planning phase. In other words, if your supervisor assigns you to lead a project, this course will enable you to draft a project plan and share it with your supervisor (and others) for review and approval. Note : This course is for anyone who has Project on the desktop, regardless of whether they purchased an “on-premise” edition or subscribed to a “cloud-based” (online) edition. Most project managers and project team members use the desktop application, so that is the main focus of this course. The main features of the online app are presented in an appendix.

On July 1, 2022 all Microsoft Office Classes will be taught using Microsoft Office 365 courseware and labs. Whether you use Microsoft Office 2016, 2019 or 365 versions, the process, tools, and techniques are the same. You will learn everything you need to improve your productivity, knowledge, and skill.
