What people say... Testimonials

    5 star review  I recently completed the two day APM PFQ training course. The trainer, Adrian, made the session very engaging giving the difficult circumstances of doing the whole course virtually. I particularly enjoyed the varied examples and applications he gave which were relevant and relatable to the group.

    thumb Helena Webb

    5 star review  I was very impressed with the APM PMQ Training Course I took with Parallel Project. The remote webinar course was very professional and the tutor was great! I highly recommend Parallel to anyone thinking of doing such a course remotely.

    thumb Tom McAteer

    5 star review  I attended a virtual 2 day APM Project Fundamentals Qualification course with Michelle. Having signed up last minute, I was posted a comprehensive study guide arriving within 24hours, I also had access to an online portal with videos and podcasts reinforcing the material from the study guide. The course itself was engaging and interactive, with study breaks for completing tasks and self-learning. There was plenty of time to ask questions. Michelle broke down what seemed like an awful lot of information into digestable chunks and really highlighted differences between pieces. I passed with a high percentage. I would highly recommend Parallel for anyone looking to gain an understanding in project management.

    5 star review  I would like to thank the Parallel, in particular John Bolton (I'm sorry I can't remember the name of your sidekick) for helping me through the whole process. Very professional, explained everything clearly and provided excellent support and a good sounding board.
