28 May, 2010: Parallel Project Training, an innovative new specialist training provider in APM project management training
and APMP certification, has launched its new distance learning package for just £300. Using the integrated Parallel Learning System students will be able to study for the APM project management qualification from their own home or office and at their own pace. The course is ideal for busy project managers who may be unable to devote five consecutive days out of the office for important APMP training.

The Parallel Distance Learning Package offers a practical approach to project management and is the perfect complement to PRINCE2. It offers an unparalleled range of distance learning materials such as the APMP Distance Learning study guide with high quality figures, sample exam questions and hints and tips on how to pass the exam. MP3 podcasts covering all the important topics included in the exam available from the Parallel Project Training website or iTunes. There is also a series of interactive exercises and quizzes with online tutor support available through the Parallel community of practice, an online moderated forum offering support, advice and guidance on the APMP syllabus.

The course is broken down into eight modules, which are consistently approached across all the material. These include:

  • How to Pass The APMP Exam
  • Project Management in Context
  • Organisation and Governance
  • Techniques
  • Business and Commercial
  • Planning the Strategy
  • Executing the Strategy
  • People and the Profession

Due to the continued excellent feedback from customers about the flexibility and wide range of learning materials, Parallel Project Training has introduced its Distance Learning Package as part of its continued focus on providing accommodating and cost effective APM training. The package uses interactive flash technology to bring the learning to life and follows the same structure as the APMP syllabus.

Lindsay Scott, Director of Arras People said this of the Distance Learning course; “We’ve been trialling the course over the past few weeks and it’s an excellent course for a project management professional to undertake. The study guide, podcasts and the online module system are straightforward and easy to use. The support offered through the online forum is also important for those times when assistance is needed from a distance”

Paul Naybour, Business Development Director of Parallel Project Training said “We are proud of our new innovative approach to project management development and believe it represents a significant step forward in increasing and simplifying access to project management training and development. At such a low cost it is an attractive option for many customers looking to invest in a flexible approach towards project management training.”
