  • Setting up preferences and properties
  • Explaining contents of ribbon menus
  • Listing required tasks and their assigned durations

A sample project will be used as an example and going through each topic on the screen with the participants, then allowing them time to complete the steps on their own screen, so that by the end they wind up with the same, completed project . At the end, the instructor would hand out a small project assignment and we would allow time for the participants to complete it on their own while the instructor would circulate to help them if they need it.

Microsoft Project for Construction is a two-day workshop and Gold Seal certified, 2 credits.
