What our customers Say About Us

See all

  • 5 star review  So far I have had a great experience with Parallel Project Training. Michelle trained myself and my colleagues for the PMQ exam and it was an amazing experience. Michelle is very positive and breaks the content down so it is all more easy to understand than reading only from the textbook. Michelle asked immediately at the end of the first day and following days for any feedback which she took it upon herself to incorporate the feedback into the following days training us, rather than asking for feedback only at the end. Michelle also taught us how to structure our answers for the exams and I think this tool has helped everyone out. This is a testament to the kind of teacher she is and shows how much she cares for everyone involved. Thank you Michelle!

  • 5 star review  Very professional from booking through to the course. I received my text book promptly and the online videos and podcasts provided a fantastic base to start training from. Our trainer, Adrian Wilson was brilliant and checked our understanding throughout! I will definitely be using Parallel again.

    thumb Emma Fuller
  • 5 star review  APM Project Management course, was a fantastic introduction to project management, perfect for people who may do a little project management or none at all and would like to learn more. The course was very well ran and engaging with excellent interactive sessions and group work to help the learning process. Paul is an excellent trainer, drawing on his own experiences to explain how project management and the process work in an easy and informative way. 5 Star!!

    thumb Marie Kenny

    thumb David Raymond
  • 5 star review  It has been a unique experience being part of this training course. Highly recommended!

    thumb Tamara Guerra
  • 5 star review  Would definitely recommend Parallel Project Training for project management courses. I recently completed the APM PFQ course that was expertly taught by Adrian Wilson. He was an engaging and knowledgeable trainer who made the 2 days a thoroughly enjoyable learning experience. The course content (both in class and via online podcasts and resources) was very comprehensive and as a result I felt very confident with my new knowledge when it came to taking the exam. I came away with enthusiasm to put new skills into practice as I pursue a career in project management and look forward to taking further courses with Parallel in the future.

    thumb Anna Thompson
  • 5 star review  Parallel held a great training session for my 1 day APM PMQ retake exam. I thoroughly enjoyed my time with this service provider. Would recommend them to any professional within the profession!

    thumb Declan Antonio Bissick
  • 5 star review  The study guide and podcasts were excellent. Paul Naybour’s words of wisdom, giving helpful feedback throughout the distance learning and at the final exam preparation session, proved invaluable. In particular, providing feedback on the level of relevant detail required in exam answers was extremely useful. It is definitely worth going through the typical exam questions, which are found throughout the study guide, a number of times. Thank you Paul and team!

    thumb A Buck
  • 5 star review  Adrian did an excellent job explaining the concepts of project management and preparing everyone for the exam.

    thumb W Idowu
  • 5 star review  Informative, learning was well designed and managed, and delivered at a good pace. The instructor was personable and engaging and helped explain concepts very well. Online learning was very engaging, use of quizzes and interaction very good, plus extra resources like moodle videos also really beneficial.
