Course Description:

Using best practices in project management can be difficult in the real world. This course combines both concepts to help with the understanding of what MS Project software is doing in the background and how to take advantage of “perfect world project management” in a real world setting.

Using a combination of best practices from A Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK® Guide) 5th Edition and step by step instruction in MS Project Professional 2016 you can begin to implement those best practices right away on current and future projects. If you are a power user of Project you can jump around to only what you need to know and use those techniques immediately. If you are newer to project management and project software you can take your time and work through from beginning to end. Templates used in the course are provided for practice and the courses helps gain or maintain your PMP® or CAPM® certifications.
