Basic knowledge of Microsoft Office applications.

Microsoft Project (often abbreviated to MS Project) is a project management application designed by Microsoft. It was specially designed to meet the needs of managers and project leaders, whatever the size of the team or organisation. In just a few years, it has become the world’s most popular project management solution.
MS Project is a comprehensive tool offering a wide range of customisable features. The main functions are:

  • project planning and management,
  • resource administration,
  • data analysis and
  • report creation.

But this software has a number of other useful features and options to help you work more productively.

Quality Training’s MS Project course is designed to teach you to use MS Project in an effective way that suits your specific needs.
