Description

This course is designed to familiarize you with the basic features and functions of Microsoft Project so you can use it effectively and efficiently in a real-world environment. This course covers the critical knowledge and skills a project manager needs to create a project plan during the planning phase of a project.

Version Note
This course is taught using Microsoft 2019 software but it is also applicable to users of Project Online and earlier versions of the Project desktop software. Instructors will note any features that are exclusive to 2019. This is an excellent introduction for users of Project 2019, Project Online, or earlier versions.

Note: This course is for anyone who has Project on the desktop, regardless of whether they purchased an “on-premise” edition or subscribed to a “cloud-based” (online) edition. Most project managers and project team members use the desktop application, so that is the main focus of this course. The main features of the online app are presented in an appendix.
