Microsoft Project Courses

ProjectPro is offering introductory and advanced courses in Microsoft Project 2016.

Scheduling a project’s tasks can become a nightmare unless one is properly trained in structuring the project using a Work Breakdown Structure and phases to ensure all the work packages are captured and decomposed into logically sequenced and resourced tasks.

It is recommended that the learner attend an introductory course such as Project Management Demystified prior to the MS Project course, but this is not essential. Delegates may attend both the introductory and the advanced courses in one 4-day session, or just the 2-day introductory or advanced course.
