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.

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.”

Premier Displays are a shopfitting company established in 1978. We are based in Sydney NSW servicing Australia wide. I was introduced to Ivor and Fast Track approx. 5 years ago.
I wanted to implement an Building Estimating Software Package that could evolve with my business. I was happy with what I saw however the distance between WA and NSW was a concern.
I’m pleased to say I am 100% happy with the software and service.
As a result I’ve since made several changes to streamline the process further along with adding a maintenance component.
I have no hesitation recommending Ivor and Fast-track. The results have been excellent using his Building Estimating Software.

“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”.
