MS Project Training

Microsoft Project is professional project management software. It will help you as a project manager, organise your project plan, track and manage resources, manage the budget and track progress.


There are now a number of different versions of MS Project, which have a huge impact on what you can do and how you can work. So as part of our pre-workshop consultation, we will identify exactly what is required and match the trainer appropriately.

You can manage complexities of a project, produce gant charts, create schedules, add task dependencies and much more.  Let us help you get the most from your investment by taking your team through the fundamentals, or creating a totally bespoke workshop to tackle your specific challenges. 

Please note, there are huge differences between the online version of MS Project and the traditional on-premise.  It is vital that we understand exactly which you are using before signing off on a booking.

However, if you are looking for some standard topics, or just need a bit of inspiration, please review the course overviews below.

Course overviews are designed for Face to Face workshops, for up to 6 delegates, but feel free to pick specific elements if you would prefer to do live online learning.
