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”.
