Manage Your Projects With Ease

Microsoft Project is the simple, popular, easy-to-use choice for project managers in a huge number of industries and applications. An extra feature is its seamless integration with other Microsoft applications (e.g. Excel) which increases its flexibility and simplicity.

We can take you from complete beginner to advanced user in two 1-day sessions. These can be taken together, making a 2-day class, or separately to allow for practice in between.

We have scheduled public (open) classes running at all our UK centres, or can run a private (closed) class for you at your offices, all at excellent prices. So when would you like your training to take place?

About Microsoft Project

Being able to manage your time, your tasks, and your resources effectively is essential for successful projects, as is making sure they are delivered on time and within budget. And this is where Microsoft Project can help you. Not only does it enable you to track the progress of your project from start to finish, but it also helps teams to work together more effectively by allowing the organisation and communication of project information in operations of every size.

But, like any other tool, Microsoft Project needs to be used properly, and projects which are set up and run without following the correct rules will often come apart. And although sometimes the software is blamed for this, it's usually just simple user error.

We run two levels of Microsoft Project training courses, and attendance on them will show anyone how to follow best practice, to avoid the common pitfalls that get in the way of project success, and use the software to deliver projects on time and on budget with confidence.

Are you getting the most out of Microsoft Project?
