Onsite Microsoft Project Training®

Learn Microsoft Project® Conveniently at Your Workplace

Join the growing number of companies who have brought our training onsite for their employees. By having the seminar held at your office, our instructors are able to provide real-world advice and instruction, while your staff gains company-specific knowledge throughout the training process.

This seminar teaches participants how to use the flagship of project management software. We teach the functionality of Microsoft® Project using a combination of lecture, hands-on applications and case studies to reinforce and better absorb the material. Although this is our standard Microsoft® Project offering, some advanced features are explored so that users can plan and manage projects in the PMBOK® context. Companies have the option of training their employees on either Microsoft Project 2003 or 2007.

To maximize your value, we recommend having ten or more of your employees attend the training. If you don't have that many employees for the training, we can also negotiate a competitive rate for smaller audiences... Call us for a quote!
