Delegates will learn how to

Our Microsoft Project for the Web course is designed to help learn the skills to maximise Project for the Web. Delegates will go on from learning essential skills to embrace the everyday features of this ‘out of the box’ intuitive tool as well as the full features that can be harnessed with deeper dive* knowledge of the application.

* As this is a browser-based application, new features are added on a regular basis, our course content is therefore revised on a regular basis to reflect this


Separate courses for Microsoft Project ’Desktop’ software (QAPRINTC and QAPRADVC) are available as part of QA’s ongoing course syllabus. A course for Project Online looking at the use of Project Online/Project Web App features that incorporate with ‘Project Desktop’ is currently in development.
