The Microsoft Certified Technology Specialist (MCTS) certifications enable professionals to target specific technologies and distinguish themselves by demonstrating in-depth knowledge and expertise in their specialized technologies. More than a product certification, the new Office Project 2007 certification family is designed specifically to help project managers apply the leading project management best practices and methodologies as established by the Project Management Institute (PMI), resulting in better project outcomes, greater efficiency, and optimal resource management.
The MCTS: Microsoft Office Project 2007 credential for managing projects validates the skills of project managers who use Office Project 2007. Candidates for this credential may work on projects as a team member, project lead, project manager, scheduler, or another role that requires the ability to formulate well thought-out project plans and to manage projects effectively. MCTS candidates may be responsible for the scheduling, estimating, coordinating, controlling, budgeting, and staffing of projects. Candidates may also provide support to other Microsoft Office Project users. Candidates should be familiar with key project management concepts and terminology.
