What's the Difference Between the Course Options?

Fast Track option

You'll learn using an easy-to-follow video which you can pause, re-run and revisit as often as you like.
Courses are often around two hours in length, but they're split into modules, and each has several topics. You can choose which module (or topic) to review at any time.
This option is for you if you want thorough coverage of the subject but have limited time at your disposal.

Development option

This is the most popular option because it includes the video, PLUS a comprehensive workbook, with exercises.
It allows you to engage fully with the course and get the most out of it: you will deepen your study enormously by choosing this option.
This option is for you if you're serious about your development and don't need a CPD certificate.

Diploma option

This includes the Fast Track video course, PLUS a CPD certificate.
It's ideal for people who want to learn the subject to an adequate level and achieve a CPD certificate but don't need to go further.
This option is for you if you need a CPD certificate as part of your professional development, or you'd like one to put with your CV.

Professional option

Here's where you get everything: the video course, PLUS a comprehensive workbook, with exercises, PLUS a CPD certificate.
So you win both ways: a great opportunity to really learn, and an internationally recognised certificate.
This option is for you if you're serious about your development, and you'd also like to show proof that you have invested in the skills.

About the ZandaX Project Introduction course

Create a Great Project Plan

Learn the basics of this easy-to-use project management software

Microsoft Project is a powerful application which needs to be set up and run properly. So learning from "ground up" in a structured way is essential.

You start by learning how to use the Project interface and create a simple project plan with tasks, dependencies, constraints and deadlines.

You then move on to adding resources, calendars and costs, and assigning them to tasks. You then learn to format the plan, use a Gantt Chart, and print out the plan to professional standards.

You will now have a solid foundation for understanding Project and using the software to create solid and resilient project plans.

Watch the modules, revisit them time and again ... and have fun with improving your skills!
