Microsoft Project YJTJ™ Series Part 2 Online class



The Milestone Microsoft® Project YJTJ™ Series – Part 2 course is a 1-day, online instructor-led, hands-on class focused on Microsoft Project on the desktop. This course begins with a brief review of key items from Milestone’s Part 1 course, and then proceeds to add more skills in task planning, resource planning, and assignment planning. During assignment planning, the core components of Microsoft Project’s scheduling engine are introduced, along with an in depth look at the scheduling equation and task types. The last two topics of the day include setting the project baseline and project tracking using percent complete tools, one of the most common tracking methods of the desktop version. Key skills taught include the scheduling engine, the project baseline, and percent complete tracking.


This course continues the Part 1 objectives of providing students with an understanding of the core foundation of Microsoft Project based on globally accepted Project Management Institute (PMI) principles for project management and proven Microsoft Project best practices. Students will learn best practices for planning, baselining, and tracking by assuming the primary role of Project Manager.


The Microsoft Project 2010 and 2013 releases are more Office-like than prior releases, and offer many new features including User Controlled Scheduling and the Timeline view. This Milestone course incorporates many of the new features and is designed for all levels of Microsoft Project experience. Prospective students should have good PC skills and a basic understanding of project management. Previous exposure to the Microsoft Project desktop tool is beneficial. Milestone’s Part 1 course should be successfully completed before enrolling in Part 2.


Milestone provides the interactive training environment for each student by providing access to online training through the Milestone lab.


This course is built on and delivered in the Microsoft Project 2010 version. For students using Microsoft Project 2013, there are very few differences. Please note that the instructor will point out differences as needed.
