Milestone Training Center is proud to present its latest training course: a highly interactive and participative 13 days course provides attendees with the knowledge to apply robust scheduling techniques to their area of project responsibility and prepares them to sit for the PMI’s Project Scheduling credential.

Project scheduling is a core component of a robust and effective approach to successful project management. The purpose of scheduling is to provide a ‘‘roadmap’’ that represents how and when the project will be delivered. The dynamic nature of a project’s execution is best served by a tool that allows for modeling of the plan and analysis due to the impact of progress and unforeseen developments.
