Configuring and Administering Microsoft Project Server 2007


Description: 

This in-depth 3-Day course for Project Server administrators is a hands-on course that walks you through the process of configuring a Project Server 2007 instance. You learn how to properly configure and maintain a live Project Server 2007 environment using both Microsoft Project Professional and Project Web Access interfaces as you configure your own server instance in our training environment. This class is led by instructors with real-world experience in deploying Project Server 2007 across many industries.

Each student receives the following:

  • A copy of the 840-page Implementing and Administering Microsoft Office Project Server 2007 Second Edition which serves as both the course manual and a valuable reference book.
  • Access to a fully functional individually provisioned Project Server instance. Students attending through Cyberspace have the option to use their own Project Server instance.

For courses taken via Cyberspace, each participant must use his or her own computer to access the virtual training environment. A high-speed internet connection is recommended. Participants do not need to have Microsoft Project Professional or Project Server installed in order to participate in the hands-on exercises.

Learning Objectives:

After completing this course, you will be able to:

  • Describe the project communication life cycle used with Project Server
  • Understand the administration interface in Project Web Access

Prerequisite: 

Although not required, it is helpful for students to have hands-on project management and Microsoft Project experience and knowledge of project management principles. We also recommend that every Project Server administrator take the course Managing Enterprise Projects from Foundation to Enterprise using Microsoft Project Server 2007 to learn how an organization actually uses Project Server 2007.

Target Audience:

This course is a must for anyone who serves as an Enterprise Project Management Administrator. The course applies to both technical and non-technical Project Server administrators, and is tailored to the business application owner who serves as the organization's primary or backup business application administrator. Although having an IT background knowledge base is helpful, it is not a requirement for students to be able to master the content in this course. As there should be a minimum of two Administrators per Project Server Instance, it may be helpful to attend this course with a colleague.
