  - PROJECT BASED, REAL WORLD MICROSOFT TRAINING

OVERVIEW

Project 2016 Essentials Training

1 DAYS  |  $373 inc gst  |  $317 EARLY BIRD

OVERVIEW


Have you ever wished for a way to plan a project and see how all the parts from materials to subcontractors fit together? How would you share those plans with others, and what about making changes? Microsoft Project is one of the most popular tools for creating ‘Gantt Charts’ – an illustrated project chart that tracks the dependency between activities and materials – in a way that can be shared.

A lot of industries rely on Microsoft Project, so you need Project training. BYOL has created a course that gives you hands on learning to master the tools and techniques that matter when it comes to knowing what to do with Microsoft Project.

Our training is led by industrial strength veterans who also have years of experience making Project enjoyable to learn and easy to understand. We know if you’re bored, you’re not going to learn. We know if you can’t keep up, you’re not going to learn. So, our classes give you the help you need when you need it. And sharing the class means you’re not trying to go it alone with a 10kg textbook and a double shot espresso.

Your training and our support go way beyond the classroom. You get exclusive videos that cover every last detail of what you learned in class. You get 12 month’s free email support from your instructor. We know the value of the extra help whenever you need it, and we’re there for you when you stretch out into new territory.

If you feel like you didn’t master, it in the classroom you can retake the course within 12 months totally free of charge. We’ve got you! And you get a completion certificate to remind the boss, or yourself, that you know what you’re doing. Call or email today and book the Project Essentials training.

Microsoft Combo

3 DAYS  |  $749 inc gst  |  $639 EARLY BIRD

OVERVIEW


Microsoft Office is a great set of programs that solve a lot of problems. They also share a lot of tools and techniques, even being capable of sharing data and functions from one program inside another. With all that sharing going on, we figured we’d join in the fun by combining several of our Microsoft Essentials training courses and give you a discount too!

We have excellent interactive Microsoft Office training in Access, Word, Powerpoint, Excel and Project.

The courses are not just easy to understand but deeply fundamental to some of the world’s most popular office software. We can show you how to synergise the features and make them all work together, making you more efficient. And valuable.

Your instructor will show you how, and when, to use each application, and we’re not just experts on the software – we’re brilliant at making it all understandable.

 

These courses are all designed to give you a great foundation to build a lifetime of skills on. We start from the very beginning, so if you have zero knowledge, or a little experience, this is the training you’ve been searching for. And you can save $370!

We offer the combo courses in a 3-day block, the most common being Word, Excel & PowerPoint. But, if you want a different combination, or want to spread the days out, just ask. We will customise your training at no extra charge.

Your Microsoft Essentials courses come with New Zealand’s most amazing aftercare support. This includes a free redo of your course within 12 months. You get free email support from your trainer too. If that wasn’t enough you also get videos of every topic covered in your course.

Learn all the tools you have available with our exclusive Microsoft Office Essentials Combo course. Call or email and book now.

More Course Information

Microsoft Project is internationally recognised as an essential tool for project management that’s as flexible as real life. You need to create planning that covers every little detail, but is robust enough to not only input changes without breaking, but add the new information and recalculate the results. And to top it all off, you need to be able to share that information. International standards are a plus.

Your training starts at the very beginning so you don’t miss anything. If you’ve been dabbling on your own, you’ll be pleased to learn the right way to use each tool, and the easy ways that are often built in to complete your work. We’ve got years of experience giving you the solid foundation that you can build your own years of experience on. You need to learn it the right way the first time, and we’ve got you covered.

Your instructor has used Project professionally – but rather than dazzle you with mysterious shortcuts and arcane workarounds, the emphasis is solely on you understanding Project. BYOL courses are written with your comprehension, and retention, in mind, so we have a practical and hands on approach that’s easy to follow.

You learn by creating projects, such as a small construction job, that reflect how you would use Microsoft Project in the real world. We are not interested in ticking academic boxes or meeting theoretical outcomes. We want you to be up and running in a professional environment, so what you work on is based on that result.

We don’t assume any prior knowledge, but we add to that the ideal that ‘no one gets left behind!’ You learn one step at a time, and because your instructor is right there alongside of you, you get the help you need exactly when you need it. Sharing the class means you can help each other and share ideas and understanding. That interactivity is not only encouraging, it helps your course to be relaxed and enjoyable. Bring Your Own Laptop has known for years that if you enjoy it, your learning experience is going to be a lot more powerful.

The most common uses for Microsoft Project are covered in your course. You’ll be seeing how project is used in the building industry in planning the fit out of a new store. Then you can build your own planning documents for creating a website and migrating materials from an old one. Creating schedules and costing projections for business are also included.

As you work through these and other projects, you will come to grips with how to open and customise Project and existing documents. You will learn the right tools for each task and how they interact. And as we commonly hear from Office users, you’ll find out why some tools don’t always behave the way you expected as you cover context sensitive menus and functions.

What really sets us apart is the level of post course support we provide you at no extra charge.

You get 12 months of email support from your instructor. If you don’t remember how to do something, or you hit a problem you can’t overcome, just ask. Even better, as you grow into more advanced ideas and projects, you’ve got help when you need. We know the learning doesn’t stop the day your complete your course.

And we don’t expect you to remember everything the first time. You don’t need to take word for word notes either. You get a very comprehensive set of videos made by BYOL that covers every detail you learned in your training. If you can’t remember, or just want to see it again, the videos are always there for you.

And if that wasn’t enough, we recognise that sometimes learning a whole new piece of software from the beginning can be intimidating. Sometimes you don’t know that you didn’t quite comprehend it until you’re on your own. You can retake the course within 12 months absolutely free because we are committed your confidence and learning.

Call or email Bring Your Own Laptop now to get the essential training in Microsoft Project. You’ll enjoy it, and you will enjoy knowing what you are doing to get the most out of Project.

Everyone here at BYOL believes in sharing. We ensure part of our profits every month goes to wonderful charities doing amazing things.
