Microsoft Project 2003 Users:

  • Our regularly scheduled Project classes are currently taught by our instructors using version 2007. We combine 2003 users with 2007 users due to the interface similarities between versions. For 2003 users, we point out specific minor interface differences and enhancements. Additionally, as a 2003 student, you can choose to use either Project 2003 or 2007 in class. Please include a note with your registration if you are a Project 2003 user.
