Adrian did an excellent job explaining the concepts of project management and preparing everyone for the exam.
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!
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!
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.
Excellent course with great delivery. Very supportive with varied delivery that ensures steady pace in progress.
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!
It has been a unique experience being part of this training course. Highly recommended!
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.
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!!
