Designed For
Microsoft Project users, wanting a fast and effective way to learn best-practice tools and techniques.

Day-to-day Windows™ expertise is required, along with a general working knowledge of Microsoft Project

Workshop Objectives

Determine what you already know

So - you think you know Microsoft Project?  An introductory quiz is there to help you assess your Microsoft Project knowledge, so you can adequately prepare yourself for what you need to learn.  Comprising twenty questions taken from our acclaimed Project Mentor CBT system, you will be tested across a wide cross-section of Microsoft Project knowledge areas.  

You'll go through this quiz again at the end of the workshop - and answers will be discussed in detail.

Course Format

Learn Microsoft Project best practices

Using real-world experiences gained with training thousands of Microsoft Project users, you will be introduced to the most effective ways to plan and manage real-world projects.  Detailed demonstrations will show you the best ways to achieve the tasks you currently perform, together with many techniques and processes you may well be unaware of.

Work through challenging labs at your own pace.

Taken from our experience in creating exam content for Microsoft's Office Specialist qualification, several detailed labs allow you to test your skills and abilities.  Real-world project scenarios are used so you can apply tools and techniques to your own projects.  Expert advice from your course facilitator will always be on hand.

Interpret Microsoft Project's data more effectively - and understand more about the performance of your projects.

A key skill in using Microsoft Project is interpreting the wealth of information that it provides.  These in-depth and stimulating exercises will stretch your boundaries - allowing you to make better-informed and more accurate decisions about a project's key performance indicators.

Confirm what you knew and evaluate what you've learned

During this workshop you'll have learned new techniques, skills and knowledge.  Work through your quiz questions again and determine just what you've gained.
