In this Microsoft Project® Basics course, you will learn how to build a project schedule and budget step-by-step in the software. You will be able to update the status in less than 10 minutes a week. You’ll work through 5 simple steps:

•Work breakdown structure (WBS)


•Estimating resources and work

•Optimizing the schedule

•Tracking weekly progress with status data from your team.

You will send your work to your instructor at each step for review and coaching. In the last module, you’ll update your schedule, identify the problems and prepare a status report.  Learning the steps in the software and building a dynamic schedule that updates automatically is the key to consistent success.

Remember that your instructor is available to answer your questions and give you coaching and feedback on your work. He will always get back to you within 24 hours. So don’t struggle with a technique, ask your instructor a question and get an answer within 24 hours, 7 days a week, 365 days a year.
