Microsoft Project Level 1 Course Overview
Microsoft Project is an indispensable software for project management. It can help you to build highly-detailed task lists and Gannt charts, accurately track resources and create sophisticated reports.
However, MS Project is not solely used by career professionals, but also by event planners and goal-oriented people, in general. The Level 1 Project class is an excellent choice for those interested in learning the basics of using MS Project. You do not have to be a Project Manager to benefit from Microsoft Project, as it allows you to choose the level of granularity you want to achieve.
In Lesson 1, we begin by discussing some basic Project Management concepts, such as the characteristics of a project and the Project Triangle. We then turn to the Project interface itself, and take a brief tour around the screen, pointing out various icons and shortcuts for increasing efficiency.
Lesson 2 transitions into defining a project. This is where a new plan is created and entered into the software. While it seems pretty basic to “define” a project, a well-defined project can end up saving both time and money, as revisions to the project plan can be minimized before the project even begins. Once the project itself is officially defined, we can create the project calendars, which will dictate the working time schedules for the project resources.

Microsoft Project Level 2 Course Overview
Microsoft Project is a very sophisticated software for project management. In the Advanced class, we focus on the execution and monitoring of the actual project. Key themes of this class include both customization and tracking.
In Lesson 1, we begin by discussing project execution. Task progress can be entered in one of several ways, depending on how specific your project must be. We also look at revising your project in terms of work and costs, which, unfortunately, is all too common in the real world.
Lesson 2 focuses on monitoring the overall progress of the project. We discuss creating custom fields and views, as well as network diagrams. Overall, we examine different techniques for analyzing the project plan.
