Microsoft Project Level 1
In the Microsoft Project Level 1 course, students are introduced to the Project interface and learn how to create a project plan, add tasks and resources to the plan, modify tasks, and assign resources to tasks. Microsoft Project is a dedicated database that can store and present thousands of pieces of data related to your projects. This data could include tasks, links, durations, calendars, resource names, assignments, costs, milestones, and deadlines. By completing the tasks and exercises in the course, students gain practical experience in using Project and obtain a greater appreciation of its value as a project management tool.
It is advised that students first complete an Introduction to Windows course and the Project Management Fundamentals course or an alternate introductory project management course.
