(5.00 out of 5) Tim W [ 08 April, 2021 ]
Great insight. Very useful. Didn't really appreciate the depth of MS Project before taking this course. Excellent delivery. Presenter is very knowledgeable in terms of MS Project and real world examples.
(5.00 out of 5) Charles S [ 08 April, 2021 ]
I enjoyed Alex's training and found it extremely valuable and would recommend it highly. I did find the reporting section especially useful because this is the tangible portion of the more complex visual aspects of of GANTT charts and to use for presentations. I actually think MS Project is vital and everyone who is connected to projects within the business should have the same level of understanding as I now do. Zoom worked extremely well and training remotely was flawless. All the best. Kind regards, Charles
