MS Project is a popular tool for project managers that allows them to develop schedules, allocate resources and duties to specific tasks, as well as track a project's progression. It also allows managers to oversee the budget and analyze workloads. This course, ideal for aspiring project managers (as well as reluctant project managers who were more or less pressed into service--you know who you are), provides a step-by-step overview on mastering basic functions that are essential for tracking any project.
NOTE: This course will focus on the Microsoft Office 2019 version of MS Project. However, you may take this course using MS Project 2010+, recognizing that some of the screenshots and functions may be different due to different versions of the software.
Average weekly commitment: 3+ hours. Total course commitment: 12+ hours.
