How do I know that this course is right for me?

We’re always happy to guide you in the right direction for your project management training and certification. Please feel free to schedule a call with our educational adviser.

Do I need project management experience to attend?

No. You probably are aware of some common project management terminology even if you are not currently a Project Manager. This course is suitable for existing, and potential Project Managers and Project Team members.

What version of the software is taught?

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.

Can I use ‘Project on the Web’?

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

Can I use ‘Project Online?

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.
