FAQs

Our online Microsoft Project course mirrors our classroom training and covers exactly the same course content.

It is a fully interactive, live training session using Zoom or Teams with the trainer present throughout.

As you move through the material in the virtual classroom, you will have plenty of chances to try out the new skills that you’re learning. You can ask questions at any point.

If you get stuck, you can share your screen with the trainer.

This allows the trainer to see exactly what you are doing. They can then explain what is going on and get you back on track as they would during a classroom course.

Yes. We provide everyone who completes one of our courses with a certificate of attendance.

Microsoft Project is project management software produced by Microsoft.

It is one of the most popular and powerful project management software packages on the market.

It is designed to be used by professional project managers and others involved in project management.

It is used to plan, organise, manage and track the progress of projects against a project plan. It can be used to plan and manage multiple projects to successful completion at the same time.

Microsoft Project allows you to organise resources and assets, monitor your schedule and budget, and quickly create charts and plans to visualise your project data.

We currently use Microsoft Project 2016 for our training courses.

Confusingly, although Project is part of the Microsoft Office ‘family’, it is not included when you purchase the Microsoft Office suite.

If you would like to purchase Microsoft Project you can find it here.

In recent years Project has not fundamentally changed, although it has steadily evolved.

This means that the training will still be highly relevant if you use a different version of Microsoft Project, for example, Project 2019.

Microsoft Project is relatively straightforward to learn as a user.

With two days of training, you can become a very confident Project user.

If you would like to become a very advanced user using new features like project servers, web access, portfolio management and the advanced analytics and reporting modules that will obviously take a little more time.

Microsoft Project is useful for anyone managing and reporting on any sort of substantial project.

This could be a traditional project manager, a team leader managing a team or a director of a business.

Anyone in a management position in a business that works with relatively few, large important projects or tasks would find the software very applicable.

For project management, MS Project is far better than Excel, just as Excel if far better than Project to calculations based tasks.

While you can create simple project plans and Gantt charts in Excel, Project contains a number of features like assigning resources, project scheduling and resource calendars (including working and non-working days) that are very difficult or impossible to replicate in Excel.

Far better is to use both programs in conjunction. You can export Microsoft Project data into other Office applications like Access, Excel, PowerPoint, SharePoint and Power BI where you can further manipulate it as necessary.

Microsoft Planner is a very lightweight app that is included with Microsoft 365 business subscriptions.

At heart, it is a very stripped down version of Project.

It is very useful for simple projects, but its limitations soon become clear when working on more complex projects and so not really suitable for professional project managers.

It lacks lots of project management functionality like the ability to manage sub-projects, to customise views and calculate completion dates.
