"The trainer (Tony) was very good with the course delivery and providing context of use based upon his own experience. He was also helpful in discussing means of use in my own working environment with suggestion of how I could maximise the potential in my own work environment. I had anticipated that the course would be further revision (following the intro course) from 2010 to 2013/2016 but I left with a greater insight than I had imagined. Very enjoyable and successful course."

"Good course, just two people in attendance which allowed the course to be tailored to the needs of the participants. Learnt a lot - some areas were more relevant than others for what I do, but still got a lot of value from the day. Now to put it into practice..."

FREE Online Revision

With our latest Microsoft Project courses, you get free online revision for a full 12 months after your class so you can reinforce the knowledge you have gained.

Access is simple: go to and log in using your email address.   This will give you free access to our e-learning revision modules.

Note: These have been developed and written exclusively by Activia to maximise effectiveness, by matching the online content exactly to what you cover in class.   We hope you have fun, on the day of the course and with honing your knowledge afterwards!

General Information

All Activia advanced ms project courses have been created, reviewed and developed to ensure up to date provision and constantly improving standards of content. Our Microsoft Project training is interactive and classroom-based which maximises learning through the ability to ask questions and discuss specific issues.

Class Sizes

Maximum class size for Microsoft Project courses is 6 delegates, which ensures that attendees get adequate time for personal attention from the instructor. At some of our centres, the maximum class size is 4 delegates.

Note that we never cancel our scheduled classes -- even if there are only one or two delegates -- so once you have booked, your place is assured.

For training at your offices, we can deliver classes of up to 8 delegates, though with bigger class sizes you must understand that there is less time for questions from delegates, and this may affect the quality of their experience.
