ProjectPro is a Registered Education Provider (REP) no. 3618 with the Project Management Institute (PMI) and has developed a series of courses for you to undertake at your own pace, place and time.

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.
