The Microsoft Project course provides a comprehensive introduction to Microsoft Project and gives participants the skills necessary to develop, implement and manage a project plan. The course consists of formal instruction, with plenty of opportunity for ‘hands-on’ practice. There is also time allowed to cover specific areas of interest for the participants.

  • Discuss basic project management concepts and principles; identify project view options, interface components, and Gantt chart elements.
  • Create a task list, using both manual and automatic scheduling modes; set durations; modify a task list; establish a Work Breakdown Structure; hide columns; set milestones; and format the Sheet pane and the Gantt chart.
  • Link tasks to establish a project schedule; modify task predecessors; set lag time and lead time; add recurring tasks; work in Network Diagram view; modify task relationships; and set task constraints.
  • Set a base calendar and edit the working time; create a resource pool and a resource calendar; assign resources to tasks; create and apply a task calendar; enter resource costs; and use the Cost table.
