The course is based on Project 2019 which is essentially the same as Project 2016. Previous versions of Microsoft Project (including Project 2000, 2002, 2007, 2010, and 2013) are required to use and practice with the software.

No. The Web-based version does not have the functionality taught in this course.

Yes, but only if you are subscribing to Project Plan 3, or Project Plan 5. Subscriptions to Project plan 1 are like ‘Project on the web’ and not suitable.
