Before you read further, see what my students are saying about my Microsoft Project courses:
From an esteemed learner: "I'm a 7-year veteran of the videogame industry and have spent most professional career working on agile/scrum/kanban development teams. This course has been a great, cost-effective way for me to broaden my project management toolbox to include traditional waterfall scheduling techniques and resource allocation modelling. I will be using these skills to help plan multi-million dollar development efforts on small to medium (50-500 person) development teams."
"This was probably one of the best online courses I have taken so far, on any subject. I did not have any previous knowledge on MS Project before I started taking the course and today I feel very confident about it." - another esteemed learner
"Lecturer not only provides excellent teaching skills, but also provides so much insight that sometimes you feel he was actually involved in MS Project's development itself. Samples, case introductions and other material is well-prepared and perfectly executed in a systematic order, where pupil is encouraged to experiment further and work on provided sample msp files. I highly recommend this to anyone using the software or prepare for a PMP or similar certificate." - review from an esteemed learner
"Full marks - met and exceeded expectation. Gladly recommend to anyone grappling MS Project. The PDUs are a great bonus too..." - Leila Barton
"One of the best course ANYWHERE.... Thanks instructor for shaping our career" - by Taha Syed

Important information before you enroll:
--how to download ms project ------------------
Microsoft only allows download through Office 365 portal, which requires a valid registration.
All the steps to install are on the official Microsoft site, and should be googled for. URLs and Microsoft offerings are changing on a high frequency as I write this in 2020.
The whole process is unfortunately complex. You should register first, then log into the Office portal and finally download and install Project.
FAQ: Can I do this course with MS Project XX?
ANY which version of MS Project you use, this course will be beneficial to you. I mainly use 2016 standalone (desktop) Project Professional for teaching, but occasionally show the latest UI (only when required). This course teaches logic and techniques universal to all major versions of Project in the market today. There will be about ~10% variation in the UI and minor tweaks, but all the critical logic and techniques will be the same.
FAQ: How to get help with installation?
If your office provides Project for you, then seek it from your System Administrator. Else, if you run into issues with the installation, you should seek the help of Microsoft's excellent and live help support system from within the Office portal. And this help is only available through the steps provided in Microsoft's link above. As far as I am aware, this is the only secure and recommended way to get a trial version.

"Excellent course. A well-chosen level of information: from the basic (but not obvious) to advanced (but without a huge amount of details, which are not possibly to remember). Very good way of communication. No inconveniences often encountered in other courses like the useless movements of the mouse, clicking on everything what’s possible, repeating sentences several times etc...Thank you very much." - by Mr. P.
