Description

The Practical Project Management with Microsoft Project (PMI_PPM-MP) course will help you with the understanding of what MS Project software is and how to take advantage of “perfect world project management” in a real world setting.

Using a combination of best practices from the PMBOK Guide-5th Edition and step by step instruction in MS Project Professional 2016 you can begin to implement those best practices right away on current and future projects.
