AGENDA: from 8/3/2020 - 8/29/2020

This seminar course introduces you to the Microsoft Project scheduling tool. There will be discussion on project management best practices; however, the emphasis of this course is how to best utilize and apply MS Project. You will learn how to use the software to plan, schedule, assign project resources and costs, and employ MS Project to manage and control resources.

During this course, you will follow a hands-on instructor led demo. You will need access to the software to successfully complete this course. Students may access the software at any of Extension's open computer labs. Students may also download a free trial edition of Microsoft Project directly from Microsoft or purchase a copy for personal use. Please note, that this software is not compatible with Apple OS products.
