articipants must bring a laptop that can run Microsoft Project software

Participants in this session will need to have Microsoft Project Standard or Project Professional software loaded and operating on their laptop computer before arriving.  This could be Project version 2010 or 2013 (but v2013 is preferred). Project version 2007 will NOT be acceptable since the interface is considerably different.  You may purchase the software from Microsoft or a third party distributor (one suggested vendor offering substantial discounted price is: jet-customers.com) Also, Microsoft offers a free trial version of Project 2013 Professional which you may access at: http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/project-help/professional-project-management-desktop-software-project-professional-FX103797571.aspx. Microsoft does not offer a trial version of Project Standard.  There may be third-party distributors that do offer trial downloads for Project Standard, which you may try. 

Prior to the conference, send an email message to the instructor, Peter Croswell (pcroswell@croswell-schulte.com) and he will reply with several sample files that will be used in the training.
