Core User | Microsoft Project

Sunday 01 January

This course is designed as a one-day, hands-on workshop to teach users how to use Microsoft Project effectively. Microsoft Project is a powerful Project Management tool which can be used to develop a plan, create tasks, assign resources, manage budgets, and analyse workloads so that you stay organised and focused. It can be used in a variety of industries including construction, manufacturing, local government, retail, financial services, and healthcare

The outcomes of this course for delegates are

  • Familiarity with the basic functionalities of Microsoft Project
  • Learning how to use Project effectively day to day
  • Be able to create a basic project schedule of tasks

Applying the skills learnt in your own organisation will require the features to be available in your organisation.  This course covers what is possible with applications within Microsoft Project, but many organisations limit access for security & compliance reasons

Special discounted pricing for Vuzion Partners can be found on the price guide within the Vuzion Partner portal here or quoted by your BDM. You can also reach out to us at

Percentages are approximate. Whilst we endeavor to include a blend of theory, demo and activities in all of our courses we recognise that some delegates prefer a particular style of course (I.e. wholly or predominantly lab based workshops or immersion experiences) and would ask them to consider their preferred learning style before registration. We would also ask delegates to check the site regularly for new courses as we expand to offer different blends of theory/practice
