Why Microsoft Project?
Microsoft's infrastructure is built upon a highly project-centred environment, making Microsoft the ideal author of project planning software. The most efficient project-centred organizations are already utilizing the full range of Microsoft Project features to optimize efficiency. However, many more surprisingly don't offer any sort of "official" Microsoft Project training to their project managers. London based companies such as these, as well as companies that are just now exploring a project based business environment, can drastically streamline their processes with training for associates. There are plenty of tools and techniques to be learned.
Have you ever noticed how much easier it is to get through a maze puzzle when you start at the end and work backward? This is because there are fewer opportunities to head down the wrong path when you start at the end goal. This same phenomenon is true when accomplishing exceptional business or life goals. When you begin planning from the vantage point of the end goal and your team gains a solid understanding of project planning software, those exceptional goals become much easier to achieve.
The reason that the project management system works is that it offers ambitious people a way to clearly define an end result, then work backward to plan the path toward achieving it. Whether it's a sales manager's project to double sales within 90 days, or an office manager's project to cut the amount spent of office supplies in half by next quarter, every person on the team can become more efficient and more successful through a Microsoft Project course.
If you're managing people or projects without Microsoft Project, you will likely be astounded at how a few days of Project training will improve your efficiency and organization. After 2 days of MS Project training, you'll have acquired a whole new set of tools for creating task lists, tracking projects, developing and analyzing schedules, and much more. At the advanced levels of Project training, or 3 days of instruction, you'll be developing your own custom project templates, creating and running macros, building forms, and creating custom calculated fields.

Some hints and tips for Microsoft project training
Taken from our Project hints and tips page.
Format individual bars on your GANTT chart
To draw attention to a bar on your Gantt chart simply double click it. From the dialogue box that opens make your selection of text and bar modifications.
Keep constraining dates to a minimum
As far as possible avoid fixing the dates of your tasks. For example try to
steer of clear dragging task bars in the Gantt chart to move them on the timeline
or entering dates directly into the Start / Finish fields.
Date constraints such as these limit Microsoft Project's ability to automatically adjust your project whenever you add, remove or modify the duration of your tasks. Instead use the logic in your task dependencies that link your tasks to enable Project to calculate the start and finish dates for you.

Placing meetings into the project plan
How do I place meetings that occur once every three months on to the project
plan. I want to place the meetings as a task, but have one task punctuated throughout
the project plan with that meeting being held once every three months.

Tasks using multiple resources
I am using Project 2007 and trying to schedule tasks that use more than one
resource, for example a meeting that both Joe and Jim need to attend e.g some
project training. If I make the duration one day and allocate
both resources, the Resource Usage shows Jim allocated for 7.5 hours and Joe
allocated for 0 hours, so Joe is scheduled for other tasks that day.
If I make the meeting/project training for a specific date, both Jim and Joe are both allocated for 7.5 hours. Any other Constraint Type gives the above results, regardless of the Task Type applied.
