Microsoft Project 2010 - Introduction

Special Notices

Please note: for Attend from Anywhere customers an additional screen is required for this course to work through remote desktop labs and view training information.

You need to gather information about the various tasks involved, resources required to accomplish the tasks, and the overall cost in order to plan a project. Microsoft Office Project Professional 2010 acts as a tool that assists you in managing your projects. In this course, you will create and modify a project plan. Once the plan is created, you will set a baseline, track project actuals and report against the plan using Microsoft Project.

Target Audience

This course is designed for a person who has an understanding of project management concepts, who is responsible for creating and modifying project plans, and who needs a tool to manage these project plans.

We review delegate feedback for every course we run. The feedback for the existing course materials consistently showed that delegates felt the course was not written in a logical fashion and in addition, many delegates felt that the 1 day format did not allow adequate time to cover the technical subject matter in sufficient depth to ensure a full understanding.

We listen and respond to delegate feedback and so have decided to replace the existing Microsoft Project 2010 Level 1 course with this new 2 day Authored Microsoft Project 2010 Introduction course.

The courseware for the new Microsoft Project 2010 Introduction course has been written by our Microsoft Project experts. It covers the key topics required by users of this software with lots of in-depth explanations, step by step instructions, key questions and group and individual activities. All changes have been made in line with delegate feedback received.

Please check the duration of the course that you are booking onto as we can offer both 1 & 2 day training in this course.


P

Microsoft Project Premium provides delegates with the most comprehensive introduction for those new to Microsoft Project. The 2 day duration allows for topics to be covered in greater depth.
