Microsoft Project 2019/2021: Part 1

Training Summary
Welcome to Microsoft® Project® 2019/2021/365: Part 1. This course is designed to familiarize you with the basic features and functions of Microsoft Project so you can effectively and efficiently manage projects in a real-world environment. This course covers the critical knowledge and skills a project manager needs to create a project plan with Microsoft Project during the planning phase of a project. In other words, if your supervisor assigns you to lead a project, this course will enable you to draft a project plan with Microsoft Project and share it with your supervisor (and others) for review and approval. The subject of this course is the Microsoft Project desktop app. A brief description of the Project for the web and the Project Online apps is presented in the Appendix. Note: You can procure a license for the Project desktop app in one of two ways: purchasing a cloud-based subscription or an on-premises license. Project Online is included in both of the following purchase options:
  • Cloud-based subscription: Project Plan 3 or 5. (Microsoft Project is not included in the Microsoft 365 plans. A separate subscription plan is required.)
  • On-premises solution: Project Professional 2021.
To ensure your success in this course, you should have basic knowledge and skills using the Microsoft® Windows® operating system—preferably the most current version. While you do not need to be an expert, some experience and competency with Microsoft 365 applications, particularly Word and Excel®, will be useful. Finally, having a foundational knowledge of project management concepts will help prepare you for working with Microsoft Project. You can take any of the following course offerings to attain the requisite knowledge and skills:
  • Using Microsoft® Windows® 10 (Second Edition)
  • Microsoft® Office Word: Part 1 (any current version)
  • Microsoft® Office Excel®: Part 1 (any current version)
  • Project Management: Fundamentals of Predictive and Adaptive Methods
