Microsoft Project Level I Foundations

Microsoft® Project Level I Foundations

This classroom course is designed for a person who has an understanding of project management concepts, who is responsible for creating and modifying project plans, and who needs a tool to manage those project plans. The foundation is built by creating and defining the project calendar. Then the task list is produced and outlined. Various task properties are defined and discussed prior to the development of the project by creating the task dependency links. Next the students will be exposed to the definition of project resources which will in turn be assigned to the tasks. Subsequent topics evolve into resource leveling, crashing the critical path, and setting the project baseline. This class includes a comprehensive exercise at the start of Day 2 and permits ample time for the students to complete several reinforcement lab activities.

This course can also be offered as on-site training by KSI anywhere across North America.
