Discover how to effectively plan, implement, and control projects using Microsoft Project 2010. In these lessons, you'll learn how to use Microsoft Project to think through and organize your project's details, plan a schedule, sequence tasks, produce a baseline, assign resources and costs, track your progress, identify and analyze variances, and revise your project plan.
Once you've constructed a basic schedule, you'll see how to enlarge it and share it with clients and co-workers. In addition, you'll learn Microsoft Project's techniques for fine-tuning different aspects of your project, including splitting tasks for work interruptions and defining material consumption rates.
The knowledge you gain from this course will help you avoid going down dead-end alleys and prevent you from overloading your schedule. If you encounter trouble on your project, you'll be able to apply a number of powerful problem resolution techniques to help get your project back on track.
No matter how complex your projects are, Microsoft Project will help you cut them down to size. By the end of the course, you'll be able to produce project plans that wow your audience and empower you to achieve your business goals.

A new session of each course opens each month, allowing you to enroll whenever your busy schedule permits!
How does it work? Once a session starts, two lessons will be released each week, for the six-week duration of your course. You will have access to all previously released lessons until the course ends.
Keep in mind that the interactive discussion area for each lesson automatically closes 2 weeks after each lesson is released, so you’re encouraged to complete each lesson within two weeks of its release.
The Final Exam will be released on the same day as the last lesson. Once the Final Exam has been released, you will have 2 weeks plus 10 days to complete the Final and finish any remaining lessons in your course. No further extensions can be provided beyond these 10 days.
Microsoft Project can help you manage your project's schedule, costs, and scope in a way that you've never dreamed of. Too often, Project users never use this powerful tool to its fullest potential. In your first lesson, you’ll discover how to improve your project by adopting a formal management approach. You’ll get a quick overview of Project Management, and then you’ll learn the basics of Microsoft Project, including a summary of the Gantt Chart view and ways to create and enter project tasks.
Once your project gets rolling, outsiders will probably want to know how things are going. It can be a real time drain answering each request individually. When others request information from you, Microsoft Project offers the perfect solution: Reports. We'll go over 20 standard reports in five different categories in today's lesson. By the time you finish, you'll be well acquainted with Project’s reporting capabilities, and also, know how to create Visual Reports as Project automatically exports data to Microsoft Excel and Visio.
Mr. Tony Swaim is an excellent instructor, as I have had him for other courses.
I feel like I learned enough of the MS Project program to use it on the job. Good class.
I thought the instructor was terrific! The course was very good and useful for my work as a PM.
A great course that got me up to speed on Microsoft Project in an enjoyable way. Thanks!
I enjoyed the course and instructor interaction. The tone and content were great and the discussions helpful. Just right for me to learn the features of 2010.
Tony Swaim's course will give you a solid background in the fundamentals of Microsoft Project 2010. He takes you step by step through most of the features of the application. Students will learn how this program automates the process for organizing, scheduling, recording, calculating, tracking, reporting, and analyzing schedule data for any project. Great teacher and course!
I can't believe how much I retained! It was a struggle at first, then my brain kicked in. Many, many thanks!
This was a fabulous course. I felt a little rushed here at the end, only because I've started full-time coursework at KSU during the day. It was a little tough getting to the courses in time before they closed. But, that was all my doing. Thanks a bunch!
Great class. I would seriously recommend this class and teacher to others.
