Getting Started with MS Project for Civil Project Engineers & Project Managers (Webinar)

$1,495.00

B2B Webinar for up to 50 participants

This webinar focusses on the skills and knowledge required to take over an existing tender stage project schedule, setting a baseline and converting it into a construction program schedule along with formatting, basic functionality and ongoing revisions. Editing an existing project file is the most common skill set required by engineers and project managers within the civil, marine and rail construction industry.

Getting started with a scheduling software can be overwhelming however, most construction engineers and project managers only update existing MS Project schedule files rather than creating one from scratch. Even if a new schedule is required, starting with an existing file from a previous project is a simple ways to get a head start.

In this course we will explain the basic functionality of MS Project and the steps and functions required to revise an existing project file. Scheduling softwares have many similarities  and even if you are using a different software package, the basics methodologies are the same.
