The Benefits of this course include :
It is a practical hands- on course. Delegates are "learning by doing" with access to MS Project Software for the course duration.
The MS Project Foundations is a 2-day intensive practical course designed to provide delegates with the ability to use MS Project productively when managing and controlling their projects.
The course begins from first principles and proceeds to a point where delegates can construct their own work plans, update the plans as the project proceeds and tailor the application to produce required views and reports.
Learn by doing – in additional to the formal presentations from Trigraph, attendees will benefit by using the MS Project software itself on their own dedicated PC / Laptop. They will build their own project by setting up resources, tasks, dependencies, schedules, milestones etc and generating reports such as Critical Paths.
All of our trainers are highly skilled project management professionals with formal project management qualifications such as PRINCE2® or PMI.
The training materials are fully owned by Trigraph which means we have full flexibility to tailor the content to suit particular client requirements.
