The one day FastPath course is an ideal starter covering similar material as the level 1 course, but without the basic concepts, costs or multiple project handling. As such it is aimed at those delegates with experience of Microsoft Project but no formal training, and those moving to a newer version.
Due to the very fast pace of this course, it is only suitable for those with prior experience of Project Management and Microsoft Project.

Who will the course benefit?
Anyone wishing to learn the essential skills to use Project 2003 to create effective Project plans and use the numerous business features available in this product. Anyone with responsibility to update and maintain project plans, but without using the complicated features, would find this course an ideal introduction to the subject.
At the end of the course, delegates will be able to prepare schedules of work utilising calendars and options set up specifically for their organisation. Delegates will be able to create and assign resources to the activities, and create milestones and constraints. In addition, delegates will be able to monitor and control progress on plans and produce a wide variety of reports and data from a plan.
This course will enable delegates to:
- Define MS Project Default Settings.
- Build and edit a project plan.
- Create and assign resources.
