With the 2013 version of Project, Microsoft introduces several new features and improves existing ones. In this  course, users will be guided  through techniques that allow project managers to quickly get up to speed on this powerful toolkit.

With the high-quality, best practice information from the experienced trainers, you will be able to save lots of time in the future and you will quickly gain confidence in MS Project.

Who for/Required Level: Project Managers who understand the principles of project management or who have successfully completed a training program on project management basics who now want to learn to manage projects with a software tool. You should be proficient in the use of other Windows-based software before coming to this course.

Course objectives:

At the end of this course you will be able to:

  • Expand your ability to access the project initiating, planning, executing, monitor & control, close capabilities of Microsoft Project

  • See each tool, technique, capability of the program demonstrated—and perform it yourself with your trainer’s help

  • Practice using Microsoft Project on real-life process improvement, IT systems and product development projects

  • Enhance your ability to continuously monitor and control your project using baselines, Earned Value Method as a dynamic schedule

  • Develop and create templates you can customize and use immediately accordingly

  • Return to work with a real job aid and sample project cases

  • Develop an integrated project plan including realistic scope, schedules, budgets and communication and risks components



 The Training Method is Workshop. The philosophy is to ‘Learn by doing’, using Experiential Learning Techniques. Each participant will have to apply all the modules in practice in individual and group exercises and role-plays. This is a hands-on training with personal computers. Participants work on their own PCs to become familiar with menus, views and reports with sample project data.

Note: Bring a laptop loaded with Microsoft Project Standard or Professional 2013. (Please note this class will only use Microsoft Project 2010 and will not discuss earlier versions.  The course leader uses Project Professional 2010, so there will be a slight difference in data/screen views if you use Project Standard 2013.)
