IT Skills: Microsoft Project (all versions)

Our IT skills training courses can take several forms including 1:1, small groups and classroom sessions. We can also custom-design comprehensive computer training programmes to your specific requirements.

We highly recommend one-to-one IT skills training at your place of work, which brings several key benefits. You can ask any questions you want, you can work at your level of expertise and your speed, and any improvements we generate are still on the PC when the trainer leaves.

Wherever possible we'll base your PC training around your own work files. For example, if you have a project plan in progress we'll use that to make the training more meaningful.

Note: There is a close relationship between Microsoft Project and these IT Training and Management Training modules:
An Introduction to IT
Microsoft Windows
Project Management



What's Microsoft Project used for?  Project is a separate application from the standard MS Office suite of programs. This PC training module will teach you how to create, monitor and maintain project plans using activities, durations and resources.

The ideal delegate is:  Someone with little or no experience of using Project 2003, 2007 or 2010. Alternatively, they've been using Project for a while but feel they have started off on the wrong tack, and would like to go back to basics.

This computer skills training module will also suit delegates with a working knowledge of Project, but who have the need to design and manage more complex project plans. Typically, delegates would be project managers, resource managers, project planners or project administrators.

This module is also aimed at those who need to interpret output from Project plans, such as line managers and clients.

Our computer training can cover a wide range of Microsoft Project topics including:
Project planning and design
Compiling task (activity) lists; Adding durations
Linking tasks; Working with dependencies
Understanding Gantt charts
Adding project resources
Identifying and resolving resource conflicts
Critical Path Analysis
Progress monitoring and project management
Project and resource calendars
Timelines, constraints and deadline dates
Resource management; Scheduling overtime
Customised value lists
Reporting features.


Please note: this list of IT Training topics isn't exhaustive. If there's something not shown that you're interested in please get in touch and we'll do our very best to help.

Cool activities include:  Project planning techniques with post-its and flipcharts.
