Aims & Objectives

Our Microsoft Project Foundation course teaches you the skills and techniques to create and use effective project plans in Microsoft Project.

You’ll learn how to create a project plan using tasks, establish relationships between task and change relationship types, set up project default settings and project calendars, display and print a project plan in various views, set a project baseline, view project information and track the progress of a project.

Attendees do not need any previous experience of Project but must have a basic understanding of PCs, including familiarity with a keyboard and mouse. An understanding of Project Management concepts is beneficial but not necessary.
