MS Project 2016 Continuation Course

You are already familiar with MS Project: planning tasks, allocating resources, overseeing project costs and creating reports are hardly any problems, if at all. But you notice that more is possible. In this follow-up training course, you get to know the more advanced options that MS Project has to offer and you learn how to perform actions even more skilfully and quickly. After a short introduction to the basics of MS Project, we will go through all the advanced functionalities step by step.


  • Setting optimal options
  • Working with different calendars
  • Entering tasks - Work Breakdown Structure
  • Dependencies
  • Filters, groups of markers
  • Working with formulas, look-up lists and graphic indicators
  • Using multiple timelines
  • Adjusting the GANTT display
  • Working with a resource pool
  • Resource management
  • Standard reports and own design
  • Reports in detail (e.g. cost overview, project overview, resource overview, cash flow overview)
  • Exporting visual reports to Excel and Visio
  • Macros in MS Project
  • Working with sub-projects


During the training, you will be coached by a social and competent trainer. At the start of the training, the trainer discusses your entry level and what you want to get out of the training. Because we train in small groups, we can respond well to the subjects that are important to you.
