You can’t use Microsoft Project 2007 or any previously released versions of the Microsoft Project software for this program or Microsoft Project 2013 or any future software for this program. This is a hands-on course that calls out specific keystroke commands. The ribbon menu you’ll use was introduced in 2010, which means all previous editions will not be referenced correctly with the keystrokes.

You can use Microsoft Project 2010 Standard for this program; however, the program will also cover some features/ functions that are only available in the Professional edition. The main difference is that you won’t be able to do the hands-on exercises associated with the more advanced functions.
