This intermediate-level course gets into some of MS Project's advanced features. You'll learn how to create baselines, apply fixed and overtime costs, perform resource leveling and more.

We're not saying it's for power-mad super villains*, mind you. It's for anyone who wants to track projects as effectively as possible. 

*Supervillains, however, are welcome to sign up for the course.
