Delegates will learn how to

Our Microsoft Project Online course is designed to help learn the skills to maximise Project Online (Plan 3 & 5) with modules to create, view, amend and importantly collaborate using the platform. In-depth coverage of creating plans, working with resources, updating plans, resource timesheets, reporting on progress as well as other Project detail. The course will be conducted from the viewpoint of full control of the Project Online environment but will also show the environment from the pervspective of Resources and other users. The course will focus on and therefore largely use the web platform but some relatively basic use of Microsoft Project Desktop software will be incorporated to demonstrate the collaboration between the Desktop and Web interfaces, this will however not constitute any comprehensive level of training in how to use the Desktop software product itself.

PLEASE NOTE – Separate courses for Microsoft Project ’Desktop’ software (QAPRINTC and QAPRADVC) are available as part of QA’s ongoing course syllabus. A separate course for ‘Project for the Web’ looking at the use of Microsoft’s newer browser-based offering in the Project workspace which is based on Microsoft’s ‘Power Platform.’ Is available.
