What people say... Testimonials

    review rating 4  I would strongly recommend Parallel Project Training to anyone looking for training for the APM Project Management Qualification. I enrolled on their online PMQ training event in June 2020, and consider it a very worthwhile investment of my time and money

    thumb Anthony McCabe

    review rating 5  Very helpful. Gave me some very useful tips when no one else did which allowed me to pass my exam. Thank you

    thumb Sophie Berryman

    review rating 5  I have recently completed the APM PMQ using the online self-study option and the exam prep-morning with Paul.The learning materials (online, podcasts and the study guide) were well written and contained all the information that I needed to pass the exam with a good mark.The exam preparation morning was particularly useful for consolidating my learning and getting my exam answer technique dialled before sitting the exam in the afternoon.Parallel were also fast to respond to any questions that I had throughout my learning. The change from BoK6 to BoK7 occurred during my studies and my options were clearly explained to allow me to decide which exam to sit.I would highly recommend Parallel to anyone looking to obtain an APM qualification, whether you chose to attend a taught course or self-study like myself.

    review rating 5  I recently passed the APM PMQ after attending a week long training course provided by Parallel Project Training. The course context and delivery were excellent under the tutelage of Jan Underdown. The podcasts and videos that were available from Parallel prior to the course were the perfect preparation to complement the coursework. I would have no hesitation in highly recommending Parallel Project Training to any interested party.
