P2013icon_64x64BeMo has just released a refreshed version of its highly successful Project Server Training Pack 2013 (formerly known as Content Pack 2013) a fully configured instance of Project Server 2013 pre-populated with sample data based on the fictional Contoso Company. In addition to being extremely helpful as a sample of Project Server 2013 for training purposes, it can also be used by individuals who want to experiment with and experience working with a fully configured Project Server 2013 instance.

This latest release of the Training Pack provides users with:

  • 8 PWA users — one Executive, one Portfolio Manager, three Project Managers, two Team Members PLUS one super user who can act as either a Project Server Administrator, Project Manager, Team Member or a Portfolio Manager. This allows users of the Training Pack to assume any user role.
  • An ERP (Enterprise Resource Pool) that has over 120 work, material and cost resources, that can be assigned as enterprise resources, with assigned RBS codes for the work resources and Position Role Enterprise Code that allows for skills matching when building project teams.
  • 29 project and proposal schedules distributed between the Head of the PMO and the four project managers.
  • All schedules moved forward in time with allocated work for 2014.
