Course
Overview

This is an in-depth, hands-on, instructor-led course provides the Project Manager or Scheduler with the basic skills needed to create and manage projects using Microsoft Project 2010 while following a standard project lifecycle process.

Each student will follow the instructor and complete hands-on exercises on their own computer workstation that is pre-loaded with the Microsoft Office 2010 application suite and Microsoft Project 2010. Each student will create and manage projects with Microsoft Project and follow the same steps that they would follow if they were creating and managing live projects.

This is a public, open enrollment training course, and there typically are students from various companies and industries in the same class. Because of this diversity, class discussions often include a wide variety of comments, questions, and student experiences to supplement the standard material covered in the course.

Course Instructors

EPM Architects instructors are certified in Microsoft Project 2010 and Microsoft Project Server 2010, and have several years of practical hands-on experience deploying multiple versions of Microsoft Project and Project Server in organizations of varying types and sizes. This breadth and depth of experience allows them to not only teach the mechanics of the tools, but also to share many practical tips, best practices, and pitfalls to avoid.
