Microsoft Project Courses

Project is the most well known project management program. Its ability to create Gantt Charts with ease and track the progress of your plans is second to none. We offer two levels of Project.

All levels can be customised or combined to suit your requirements or we can write a course specifically for you! (Standard course outlines are for a one-day course.)

PDF versions of the Course Outlines are available – contact us.
