MS Project Course – “I did a Ms Projects scheduling course with Varsity College some years back and it was informative and a good course and it did open up mpp to me. But this course really gave me a better sense and use of the software to add value to my clients as well as my site management in the way of controlling cost in real time. I found that now I can really put control of all aspects such as the resources, cost control, risk identification and scheduling of works in one place and then only expand on that“
