  1. 1.   Deltek MPM Course Outline Using Deltek MPM In The Real World Duration: 3 days (Optional additional day to include cost/schedule integration using the Deltek MPM Microsoft Project Interface). Prerequisites: Basic knowledge of Microsoft Windows and Earned Value Management. Target Audience: Project Control Administrators, as well as any individuals responsible for estimating or statusing project control data, analyzing output data from an earned value system, linking schedule data to project control data, or supporting MPM users. This course would be beneficial for Cost Estimators, Proposal Managers, Budget Analysts, System Administrators, and Control Account Managers. Course Description This hands-on, highly interactive course provides an in-depth training into using Deltek MPM and it’s components in a real world environment.
