RESTON, VA (November 22, 2010)
Learning Tree International (NASDAQ NGM: LTRE) has announced the introduction of a new course entitled Microsoft Project 2010: A Comprehensive Hands-On Introduction. In this three-day course, our expert instructors will teach participants the comprehensive benefits of Microsoft Project. Attendees leave the course with a specific, working plan that can be used in the field to help them manage projects more effectively. They will also learn how to efficiently schedule, optimize, track, analyze and report on both time and resources in their project plan.

In this course, participants gain hands-on, practical experience using Microsoft Project 2010 with exercises that include:

  • Creating project plans, tasks, summary tasks and milestones
  • Constructing and changing task dependencies
  • Deploying manual and automatic scheduling techniques
  • Controlling project, task and resource calendars
  • Setting baselines and tracking progress
  • Generating basic and dynamic reports

“Project managers are frequently challenged to complete projects on time and within budget as they often work within short time frames and with limited resources,” explained Jennifer Urick, Vice President of Product Development for Learning Tree International. “We’re pleased to offer this comprehensive introduction to Microsoft Project 2010, which provides a flexible and intuitive solution to help them gain control of their projects.”
