This is our 1 day intermediate to advanced Microsoft Project training course aimed at those who need to create more complex projects within the program. 

During the course you will be using examples to strengthen your knowledge of key areas such as using autofilters, interim plans, using percentages to track progress and organising multiple projects.

This course is designed for existing users of Microsoft Project who may have already attended our Microsoft Project Introduction course or who already have an understanding of the basics including: setting up calendars, creating Gantt charts and critical paths and assigning internal resources.

By the end of this course you will know how to use the more complex areas of Microsoft Project such as tracking and resolving conflicts, as well as managing and monitoring projects while providing status information.
