Leo Nguyen, Graduate Project Engineer, McMahon Services Australia, on 05/04/18, writes:

“Friendly, confident presentation by Ivor, cut to the heart of the matter quickly.  Happy with the balance, which was tailored to my specific situations, knowledge and skillsets.

The whole training were just great! I found it all to be just right.  The course was designed for 3 hour length of each session which help me to retain information and practice accordingly when I am back at work.

I am more confident in the way I would practice the application of Microsoft Project and Primavera P6 after this course. In general the course was great and you were kept involved.”

I am currently working as a HSE Advisor, however I have previously worked as a construction manager, project manager and I am completely amazed at the lack of understanding of project management that exists out there in the workplace.

I came across Ivor’s website as I thought that I needed upskilling in Microsoft Project if I wanted to get back into construction management and I have been absolutely amazed at just how much I didn’t know about this software. Ivor’s teaching approach is very refreshing and makes learning the elements of Microsoft Project very easy.

I had the pleasure of attending an Excel intermediate Training session with Ivor Kosowitz.
His knowledge on Excel is by far the best I have come across in over 30 years in the Mining & Oil & Gas industries.
He has the patience and the skills to enable you to better your on skills.
The one on one training broken into small blocks on different days is by far the best solution for any candidate.
I would recommend Ivor to anyone seeking to improve their Excel skills.

Bernard Sweeny

Senior Project Controls, Impex Darwin

As an experienced civil engineer with many years in the industry, I identified that my planning skills were lacking. Both to produce a working programme and to have the ability to explain how the programme reacts to change.
After taking the courses in Microsoft Project and Primavera P6, I can now identify the correct procedures to rake to produce a working accurate programme. This in turn, allows me to show progress to colleagues.
The courses were split into manageable time blocks which gave better retention of the subject matter.
I am now confident that I can identify areas that may not be correct within these software packages the time consuming limitations that they present.
In closing,  there is no way that these software packages can be self taught.
Many thanks Ivor, and I look forward to the advanced excel course.

Andrew Regan

I had a requirement to learn MS Project as this was the preferred reporting tool as specified by the client. Having had no previous Projects experience, I attended a course in the CBD, which was very informing and contained a lot of information.
When I went to apply this learning to an actual project, I had trouble transferring what I had learnt into practise. I had learnt 90% of what I needed to know but struggled to understand where I was going wrong and couldn’t convert this into something that worked.
I came across Ivor via the internet and advised him that I had already attended another course and was sceptical about attending another in case I found myself in the same situation. He stated that his style of teachings was different, starting with a focus on understanding the basic logic required to build a program.
Ivor’s method of training over 3 sessions and using a pencil and paper has resonated well for me and I’m pleased to say that I now have a level of confidence using Project that I didn’t previously.
I’d be happy to act as a reference for anyone who is like me and a bit old school with regards to using computer programs.

Jason McInnes

Operations Manager, Progress Rail

I contacted Ivor to conduct 3 x 3 hr, one-on-one training sessions relating to how MS Project can work with the Maximo maintenance management system plus ancillary XL based inputs. At the start of the course, I was unable to build an operational MS Project Template to accommodate all my requirements. Just following the internet based tutorials was no substitute for sitting with an expert and asking specific questions about the precise set up I required. After two sessions I was able to build a robust template and this meant that in the third and final session we were able to get down to the nitty gritty of the project.
Ivor was invaluable to me and I don’t hesitate in recommending him to anyone seeking a thorough understanding of what MS Project can (and can’t) do for you.

Mick Lampard

Maintenance Planner

I recently completed the Microsoft Project course with Ivor from Fast Track Computer Solutions. I had previously completed Microsoft Project in 2014 at another major national training institute, however found the course too regimented and serviced from a text book with the lectures opting for a click here, click there and move on approach.
I discovered Fast Track whilst searching the internet for a more one on one base learning approach. Working with Ivor over 3 days was far better than anything I completed previously. His approach is learning the why and how things happen giving you the understanding and the ability to know how to correct issues as you see them arise. The pace of the classes is based on your ability to take in information prior to moving on too quickly, learn it and know it, rather than see it done, and move forward.
I recommend using the services of Fast Track Computer Solutions for your Microsoft Project training, as Ivor’s knowledge of the program and its faults/uses, is exceptional.
Thanks Ivor.

Rick Lambly

Construction Manager

I completed a introduction to MS Project course back in 2013. Thanks for the help, it has helped me so much in my career since.

Matthew Baune

Project Engineer

I found this course gave me a great grounding about how to use Microsoft Project properly and how to get around glitches that exist with the software. I was doing an online course, which is very difficult to follow when you have a specific issue and it is not giving you the answer, whereas Ivor is beside you showing yo where you go wrong which takes the frusration out of learning the software.
I had also read some details about MS Project online and was getting help from other people who use MS Project, which I now see is not the way to learn it. I basically had to start again and forget everything I was doing. I feel now that I have a good starting point and can build on this in the future.
I would also like to point out that Ivor was very flexible in scheduling the course day and time. I was able to do this on Saturdays which made a big difference in that I didn’t need to take a day off work during the week. All the other people I spoke to about doing that course were not as helpful.
Furthermore Ivor was more competitive than any of the courses that I looked up.

John Tarmey

Project Manager, Agito Group

In February 2014 three colleagues and I received Microsoft Project training over two-half days with Ivor.
Ivor’s approach to training reflects his real-world and industry experience. An initial review of computer-assisted project management really helped put the required processes into perspective, which was then followed with a manual project planning exercise to provide the essential foundational knowledge. We then began using Project without risk of falling victim to some of the pitfalls that another training method may have ignored.

Microsoft Project Training Courses: 2016 – 2013 – 2010 – 2007

Fast Track is the leading independent Microsoft Project Training Perth, WA, and have helped project managers in setting up unique projects. One-on-One or Small Group training is provided. Training is provided at our relaxed, quiet, informal training room, or at your office if required, at times suitable to you or your staff. Tuition is available at all levels, suited to the requirements of your staff.
Our preferred and proven method of training, is to train in 3 hour units on different days. This allows the trainees to do homework, and when the next unit resumes, we are able to address any issues arising from the previous unit. In addition, we have found that a unit of more than 3 hours in any one day, is not productive as one’s attention span reduces dramatically as the day wears on. Our course is totally different to the other courses. You will understand the concepts very quickly. We do not confuse you with the really difficult features until you master all the other features first. We also explain the inherent “problems” with MS Project and show you how to work around them. For example, MS Project has a built in “time machine”! We will show this to you when we see you.
The team at Fast Track can set up and monitor your project for you if you do not have the time to do it yourself. In the past few years, we have provided such services on a major new gold Mine Project in WA (Tropicana), as well as providing similar services on the Perth Metro Rail Station Project, Federal Government Schools Upgrade, a new Gold & Silver Mine Project in Queensland, Huet Defence Facility in Swanbourne, Tropicana Mine Project – Mining Implementation, Hanking Gold Mine (Marval Lock) Re-Development, 72 Housing Project at Wickham being built for Rio-Tinto, Desalinisation Plant for Valoriza Water WA, for BHP at Newman, and IBIS Airport Hotel Re-Development in Sydney.

Major organisations we have worked with, since 1985, include the following

BHP, Rio-Tinto, FMG, Atlas Iron, Commonwealth Bank, Westpac Bank, Austal Ships, Wellard Group, AngloGold, TAFE WA, Curtin University, University of WA, Alinta Energy, Trononx, Nilsen, Linfox Logistics, Sir Charles Gairdner Hospital, Valoriza Water Australia, Ozlands Drilling, Enscope Engineers, Mimi Browse, Halliburton Consulting, Transocean, Wild Geese International, Goldfields, Downer EDI, Newgen Power, DW Kolagow and Associates, CSIRO, Broad Construction, Federal and State Government, Japan Australia LNG, Gransden Construction, Fluor Australia, Subsea International, Doray Minerals, Metwest Steel, Radlink, Chevron staff, Woodside staff, Enermech, CSBP Wesfarmers, Dept. of Defence, Etc.
