Basic Project Training Course

Our Basic Project training course can be carried out in the following versions: 2010, 2013, 2016 and 365.

All of our courses are full day courses, typically running from 9:30am to 4pm with two coffee breaks and a lunch break throughout to break up the course. Timings can be slightly flexible though to fit in with your needs. We can also create a bespoke course to tailor the contents of the course to your needs. Just ask, we’d be happy to help.
