Introduction to Microsoft Project

This is a comprehensive two-day introductory course for first time users of Microsoft Project. Familiarity with the Windows operating system and basic mouse and keyboard skills is assumed. Existing project management experience is helpful but not mandatory. The course duration is sufficient to allow delegates plenty of time to practise and experiment. They also learn how to customise the software to meet the reporting requirements and preferences of their organisations. The course can be run using Project 2010, Project 2007, Project XP, or Project 2000, and will be adapted to incorporate the most up-to-date features available for the version being taught.
