Introduction to Powerproject
Who should attend?
This course is designed for those who are new to Powerproject and need a full overview starting with the basics of creating projects through to tracking progress and reporting. This course is also useful for those looking for a refresher or to catch up on the latest version.
The course provides an introduction to Powerproject and gives an understanding of the key concepts and features within the software. Exercises and coursework are based on construction-specific projects.
On completion of this introductory course you will feel confident creating and updating projects in Powerproject. You will learn to create a logic linked plan and recognise the critical path and float. You will understand how to structure projects, set up code libraries, update progress and print out the project with all necessary reporting.
This is a two-day course designed for beginners who are new to Powerproject. The course runs at a pace which allows time for practical exercises and questions.
If you are unable to take the two day course over consecutive days, there is also an option of covering the topics over two separate one-day courses. If taken as separate courses, the first day focuses on project creation and set up, and the second day covers reporting and progressing your project.
