LOCATIONS: Auckland, Wellington

SUMMARY:

Bring Your Own Laptop offers a complete introduction to Microsoft Project that requires no previous experience (other than the basic computer skills you’d need to get to this web page) and is fully interactive. You learn by creating real world projects with Microsoft Project. And because your instructor is with you at every step, you get the explanation and the help you need when you need it.

The course covers updating an existing Project file, planning a refit of a commercial property using Project and a construction schedule. You will of course learn how Gantt charts are created and used in Microsoft Project.

Bring Your Own Laptop will lend you a computer (Mac or PC) or you can bring the one you’re comfortable with. There is also class leading after course support with 12 months’ email tech support, videos, notes and a chance to retake the course if you didn’t take it all in.

Ace Computer Training

Level 3, 46 Brown Street, Ponsonby, Auckland 1021

 

LINK TO COURSE

COURSE TITLE: Project Task Management

LOCATIONS: Auckland, Hamilton, Wellington, Christchurch

SUMMARY:

Ace Computer Training offers 4 progressive courses for Microsoft Project, and we’re talking about the first one, Project Task Management.

Right off the bat, this course requires you be up to speed on Microsoft Excel, and they teach that over 10 one day courses. You are also required to already have a basic overview of Project under your belt. They suggest the help menu. So, this is definably not a ‘my first Project’ course.

The course outline covers the usual suspects – ‘introduction to Project,’ ‘setting up a Project,’ and creating reports. There are some very useful topics including consolidating multiple projects and using Project to monitor costs of a task or an entire project.

It’s not entirely clear how easy this course would be for the absolute beginner, but for the average user the topics covered would certainly get you up and running in the typical office environment.

LINK TO COURSE

COURSE TITLE: Project Introduction

LOCATIONS: Hamilton

SUMMARY:

If you are looking in the Hamilton region for an introduction to Microsoft Project, Ardito Corporate Training offers two courses, the first ‘introductory’ level for first time users is reviewed here.

To begin with, you only need to have basic Windows skills to attend, no previous experience with Microsoft Project is required, though if you are self-taught, you would benefit from filling in all the blanks on what can be a powerful but precise piece of software.

Project is used to manage jobs with a Gantt chart, displaying the relevant information, and helping you to bring together tasks and resources, and use Project to link and modify the results. After learning what tools and menus perform what tasks, you’ll work through a project all the way to being able to print a basic report.

There is no mention of any resulting qualifications from this course, or any support after your training.

SUMMARY:

Other Microsoft courses offered include very comprehensive outlines of the courses, though again, there are few specific details about the cost or actual running time. Call and ask. There is a mention that classes exist, or they can come to you.

LOCATIONS: Auckland, Hamilton, Christchurch, Napier, Dunedin, Wellington

SUMMARY:

The Knowledge Academy offers a range of Microsoft training courses in ‘luxury’ locations and their Microsoft Project course is apparently no exception. From the ‘world’s largest global training provider’ comes a course led hands on by an expert instructor in a classroom training environment.

Your swanky locale comes with refreshments, and a guaranteed best price. Sure. They promise to match any ‘like for like’ quote from competitors, and I would suggest you try that before you book.

You do get email support before and after the course and a certificate of attendance.

Prerequisites include a basic Windows skill set, and they strongly encourage you to have previous experience with Word or Excel which makes sense for something as industrial strength as Project.
