    As process and planning coordinator at Royal van Lent Shipyard, I use MS Project daily to set up project schedules. The MS Project e-learning course helped me superbly in developing my skills with this program and it improved the way we work at our company. The course is very well set-up and each level is a little tougher which will challenge you to get the most out of your schedules!
