What our attendees say:
Rousseau de Villiers PMP
Contracts Manager, 3 Oaks
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“
Engineering Technician, PRASA
“Knowledge like this is rarely shared in our industry as there is always competition amongst
peers. So the sharing of this valuable knowledge is what I appreciated most about the MS Project course“
Project Manager, BR Project Management
MS Project Course – “The fact that you can complete it on your own time, giving you the time to first use the program and implement what you learned before continuing. Also the fact that the presenter lets you complete the program along with him and so seeing what your mistakes are“
MS Project Course – “The course is very interactive and straight to the point. I like that it covered all I needed to know about MSP“
