About Microsoft Project Advanced Level 2

Microsoft Project 2016

This Microsoft Project advanced course will focus on the finer points of the scheduling tool. The course builds on existing skills learnt during our two day course. It is structured but informal, with opportunities to ask questions throughout the course. We will start the course by consolidating your existing knowledge and filling in any important gaps. There will be opportunities to discuss/demonstrate Microsoft Project and its relationship with Office 365, SharePoint and Project online.

This one day course is invaluable for experienced project managers who have used Microsoft Project on a company project or have completed the two day introduction course and now want to develop their skills further.

    APM Project Management Qualification (PMQ) course review

    I completed the PMQ course through IPSO FACTO and they were a pleasure to work with from the moment I first made an enquiry. Every piece of course administration was made simple for me and the classroom facilities were just perfect. The course instructor was professional, knew the subject very well and focused our learning in a practical way to help put it into perspective. Overall, a very professional experience and I would recommend IPSO FACTO as a quality training company. Thank you. [Scott Sellars]

    PRINCE2 Foundation and Practitioner course review

    I attended the project management qualification in December (having already attended the PRINCE2 course in November). Although a challenging subject, I found that the training was engaging because there was adequate time to not only listen but to also give examples and hear examples from other individuals from the class. This aids to help people’s understanding or misunderstanding in some cases and help breakdown the subject into easier chunks. It also helps that IPSO FACTO have in my opinion some of the most experienced instructors in the country, meaning that if you just don’t get something they bring their personal experience into the story to help your understanding.

    APM PFQ (Introductory Certificate) course review

    The PFQ (APM IC) was for me a good introduction into understanding the ‘Project Management’ world better. It helped me to identify areas and processes that I am not yet familiar with but I now have more confidence in tackling. Passing this course has further confirmed that I do want to go on to study for the APMP qualification. Chelsea B.
