I will be using these  skills to help plan multi-million dollar development efforts on small to  medium (50-500 person) development teams.””This was probably one of the best online courses I have taken so far, on any subject. I did not have any previous knowledge on MS Project before I started taking the course and today I feel very confident about it.” – another esteemed learner”Lecturer not only provides excellent teaching skills, but also provides  so much insight that sometimes you feel he was actually  involved in MS  Project’s development itself. Samples, case introductions and other material is  well-prepared and perfectly executed in a systematic order, where pupil  is encouraged to experiment further and work on provided sample msp  files. I highly recommend this to anyone using the software or prepare  for a PMP or similar certificate.” – review from an esteemed learner”Full marks – met and exceeded expectation. Gladly recommend to anyone grappling MS Project. The PDUs are a great bonus too…” – Leila Barton”One of the best course ANYWHERE….

All the steps to install are on the official Microsoft site, and should be googled for.  URLs and Microsoft offerings are changing on a high frequency as I write this in 2020.The whole process is unfortunately complex. You should register first, then log into the Office portal and finally download and install Project.FAQ: Can I do this course with MS Project XX?ANY which version of MS Project you use, this course will be beneficial to you. I mainly use 2016 standalone (desktop) Project Professional for teaching, but occasionally show the latest UI (only when required). This course teaches logic and techniques universal to all major versions of Project in the market today. There will be about ~10% variation in the UI and minor tweaks, but all the critical logic and techniques will be the same. FAQ: How to get help with installation?If your office provides Project for you, then seek it from your System Administrator. Else, if you run into issues with the installation, you should seek the help of Microsoft’s excellent and live help support system from within the Office portal. And this help is only available through the steps provided in Microsoft’s link above. As far as I am aware, this is the only secure and recommended way to get a trial version. –end of “how to download ms project”——————In case you find the course useless for your career, don’t forget you are covered by a 30 day money back guarantee, full refund, no questions asked!Once enrolled, you have unlimited, lifetime access to the course!You will have instant and free access to any updates I’ll add to the course.Check out the curriculum and the FREE lectures for a course preview”Excellent course.
