With Project 2003 – Foundation, we come in with industry proven training materials and give you the confidence to put on a workshop like a subject matter expert.   With so much happening now, who can blame your students for having trouble staying organized?  Getting Microsoft Office Project 2003 was a good start, but they don’t know how it works and perhaps your don’t either.

Each and every day trainers around the world rely on our courseware and training materials to educate people.  Because we know that it’s not always easy to teach, we want to make it as easy as possible by providing you with training materials like an Instructor Guide, Quick Reference Guide, Student Manual, Power Point Slides and even the Lesson Plan, we’ve done it all just for you, let us help. But we do it behind the scenes, with fully customizable courses you can make examples relevant to your environment and even allow you to change our name to your own.

Microsoft Office Project 2003 can be looked at as a digital filing cabinet you can use it to store, find, and share information, however, unlike a filing cabinet you can also use it to manage, plan and even analyze information. With our training materials we make it easy to instruct others.
