Great course provider and great trainer Tyrone, have learnt so much in 5 weeks!
Highly recommended Parallel Project Training. Carmen is a fantastic trainer, she is able to guide you through the training in a friendly and welcome manner, she takes the qualification and puts it into bite size chunks to make it digestible over the 5 weeks. Thanks for all your help!
Would highly recommend using Parallel Project Training. They have supported me in my journey to achieving my APM PMQ.The presentations and podcasts that they provide are informative and easy to understand. Compared to other training providers they are also one of the cheapest around.
Excellent course and really well led by Tyrone. Great method of getting the key information across and really informative.
APM PMQA well run and thought through course. The online portal, with videos and learning material was a great benefit along side the teams sessions.Our trainer, Carmen, was very knowledgeable and helpful. She put time aside to help answer questions, review work of our allotted sessions which was really appreciated.A slight frustration for me was that the paper work didn't always match the slides we were looking at, and the study guide arrived after our first days learning. But overall a very well run course.Many thanks,Richard
Amazing course and highly recommended. Carmen was very knowledgeable and easy to understand in order to pass the APM PMQ exam.
Excellent training delivered by Paul Naybour; would recommend to anyone pursuing APM qualifications
I can highly recommend Parallel Project training for the preparation of the APM certification. The trainer are highly skilled and take huge effort in working with each individual to prepare for the exam (Thank you Carmen for you huge support and going the extra mile!). Their online platform includes very helpful videos and their prep questions trains you well for the assessment criteria.Absolute worth it!
I complete the APM Project Fundamentals Qualification through online webinars and exam. The learning materials were high quality and delivery was very professional. The tutor was extremely well prepared and use analogies, case studies and real world examples to help make the course engaging.If you want to get an APM Fundamentals Certificate and your company uses the APM system for project management, then this course is a good introduction. However, the content is largely about the APM words for different aspects of project management and you are tested, not on your PM skill, but your ability to remember a specific set of terminology. This led to a lot of "teaching to exam" rather than developing any skills. This course lacks depth and does not develop Project Management skills.
I completed the APM qualification 5 days over 5 weeks and I found this to be better way due to work commitments etc. Our trainer Carmen was very knowledgeable and I found the first 4 days of the course very beneficial. Unfortunately the final day which was used for revision didn't suit my learning style and I came away feeling more unprepared. Instead of going over all the content we have already learnt and answering any questions we just kept going over 'possible' questions and answers which really didn't work for me. I also found the exam questions to be very different to the ones we have spent time on practicing, so again seemed like a waste.
Attended the APM PFQ training & certification - One of the best trainings I have been in, the instructor (Jan Underdown) was very knowledgeable on the subjects due to her immense real-life experience in project management, very articulate and took time to ensure everyone understood the concepts.
Parallel Project Training provide a well-structured course, enabling an in depth understanding of project management methodologies, structures and challenges to overcome. The tutor (Jan Underdown) balanced the course well and I thoroughly enjoyed the experience. The online service is exceptional!
Would highly recommend this course. Very well led, Jan skill fully balanced the breadth of syllabus in a pace that was manageable for the 5 week course.
Brilliant. Great support and presented very well
The APM Project Fundamentals Qualification (PFQ) course was very chaotic to say the least. The training provider spent way too much time making kitchen analogy to illustrate structural breakdown and then ended up rushing through the rest of the course and I feel like she missed important bits that we were asked about in the exam.
Took the virtual APM PMQ 6-week course with Paul Naybour. The course was conveniently timed to fit around the day job. Paul is hugely knowledgeable and supportive, teaching both PM principles and exam technique. Highly recommend to others with or without previous project management experience.
Fantastic quality training by excellent tutors. Highly recommended.
Parallel training is an exemplary company, from the customer service, to the study material, and the course itself.Fully recommend, thank you Michelle and Paul.
I heartily recommend Parallel's APM PMQ 8 week virtual course. Its not an easy exam, however the tutors at Parallel ensure you have the knowledge and tips to pass. The tips and advice on how to pass the exam were invaluable and compliment the online lessons, text books, podcasts and homework.
I've done the self study course for the APM PMQ certification. The study guide from parallel was pretty comprehensive and sample exam questions and answers really help in rounding out the full understanding of the exam. They also provide podcasts and video lessons.And they mark your sample answers on their online platform.I've had 2 webinars with Paul and he was really helpful at explaining how to answer the exam questions and great at running the webinars (quite funny too). In the end I passed my PMQ and would recommend this provider. But to anyone doing the course it is quite difficult if you do it as self study. I would definitely advise to go for a tutor led course if possible.
Excellent service provided. The trainers are qualified and well informed. I would recommend.
Very Professional and supportive organisation - coached me through my ChPP and I passed!
Very professional and thorough preparation given to me as part of a successful ChPP application process to the APM. Thank you for the support and guidance in the overall process.
I took an APM PMQ course through Parallel in the past few weeks and I was very happy about the quality of the training material (varied and suitable for all kinds of learning. There were videos, podcasts, printed material). I was especially impressed by the ability of the instructor, she was engaging, organized and super efficient, which helped me as well with my mental organization for the exam.Highly recommended!
Paul Naybour is an amazing tutor and explained the concepts very well and given continued support through out the course duration. The 6 week course of APM PMQ helped quite alot to manage office work, personal life balance and course study. The weekly assignments through out the course study helped to understand the contents much better. Thank you so much for all your help.
I have just completed the PMQ qualification over 10 weeks. I found studying using this format really beneficial as it gave more time to really understand the content and prepare for the exam. I would recommend Parallel Training to anyone who is looking for a training provider to study the APM qualifications with.
The training was fantastic but the mock up didn't help at all.The exam questions are way more difficult.I completely disagree with the statement on the APM page: "No prior knowledge or experience is required for this qualification".
Good training service offered for professionals. Would 100% recommend.
Great packages available and very well ran with lots of useful feedback throughout. Highly recommended and yes I'll be back for more :)
I'm always sceptical about online reviews of companies but the reviews for Parallel Project Training convinced me to opt for them and I'm very glad I did. The course trainer, Michelle Greaves, was excellent and delivered the online course extremely well. I did the PMQ spread over three weeks to give myself more time to absorb the information. It was well paced, clearly communicated and she used real world examples to help you understand the concepts you were learning. She made the sessions very inclusive in a way that enabled her to check our understanding and to pick up any areas we needed to focus on. From the beginning of the course she guided us in terms of exam technique and how we needed to answer questions which was very helpful for someone who's not taken an exam in over 20 years! The speed with which she turned around our practice assignments was impressive and her feedback really helped with understanding what needed improvement. I'd definitely recommend the company and, in particular, choosing a course delivered by Michelle!
Thanks John for all the support and training provided, I am pleased to comment the delivery method was excellent and all via on-line. I appreciated the fast turnaround of feedback, coaching and support provided throughout the process. I would strongly recommend this to others.
Great course, provided in a professional and easy to navigate platform with forums to ask questions and feedback.
Parallel Project training were employed by my employer to support me through the ChPP application. Great support through what could have been a challenging and complex process. All carried out virtually which saved a lot of travel time.
Achieved by ChPP accrediation first time...with excellent support from PPT. Thanks

About Coventry

About Coventry

Located in the West Midlands region, Coventry can be found on the banks of the River Sherbourne. There has been a large settlement in this area for centuries. During WWII, Coventry was the site of the single most concentrated attack on a city that took place. The Cathedral was left in ruins and has since been replaced with a more modern building which stands alongside the original. Much of the city was also rebuilt to create a vibrant modern city that offers a real mix of the old and the new.

Coventry is one of the most accessible cities in the UK. It is situated right in the centre of the country and accessible by all forms of transport and from almost any destination.

It has great train links and the journey time from London to Coventry is just 1 hour, it is around 20 minutes from Birmingham and between 2 hours and 2.5 hours from Manchester. The station is located close to the centre of Coventry and is well placed for local bus links into the centre.

The closest airport is Birmingham which has arrivals from the Middle East, Europe and the Indian subcontinent, as well as many other airports within the UK. There are 130 trains per day connecting the airport with Coventry city centre, and the 11-mile journey takes around 14 minutes.

For those people who prefer to visit Coventry by car, there is easy access to the motorway network. The M6 (and the M6 Toll), M40, M42, M5, M69 and the A54/46 are all major routes in and out of the city and the wider area. Coventry is also linked to central Birmingham by road, and the journey takes just 20 minutes. There are also good National Express links to Birmingham and Coventry, making coach an alternative travel option.

Where to Stay

The majority of project management courses last a couple of days which means it is necessary to book a room in a nearby hotel, and Coventry has plenty of great hotels to choose from with some excellent facilities.

Ramada Hotel and Suites – CV1 3GG

A 10-minute walk from the station, the Ramada Hotel and Suites is situated right in the heart of Coventry. There is on-site payable parking, and the hotel has access to good public transport links making it very easy to get to. All of the rooms are spacious and modern and have all of the amenities that you would expect. There is a well-equipped business centre on-site and meeting rooms can be booked at additional cost. The hotel also has its own award-winning restaurant.

Warwick Conference – Radcliffe – CV4 7SH

For those who prefer to visit Coventry by car and do not mind being a little distance from the city centre, Warwick Conference, which is located on the campus of Warwick University, is a fantastic choice. There is plenty of free onsite parking here. The rooms are all modern and spacious and ideal for those who might need to keep in touch with the office whilst on a course. There is a well-equipped business suite, and meeting rooms can be hired at an additional cost. The hotel is set in rural parkland and surrounded by lakes. As you might expect for a hotel on a university campus, there is a comprehensive range of sports facilities available to guests of the hotel.

DoubleTree by Hilton Coventry Building Society Arena – CV6 6AQ

On the outskirts of Coventry, you will find Double Tree by Hilton. The arena-adjacent location of the hotel means that not only is it incredibly close to one of Coventry’s railway stations but that all of the rooms offer views out over the arena. There is ample parking, but this is charged at an additional daily rate. The hotel has meeting rooms and a business suite making it easy to stay in touch with the office.

Things To Do

Whilst you stay in Coventry for a couple of days, it is well worth exploring the local area and there is certainly plenty to keep you occupied.

Restaurants

The diverse culture of Coventry is reflected in its cuisine. Here you will find everything from good pub grub to chain restaurants, small bistros to ethnic restaurants.

There are no Michelin stared restaurants in Coventry itself. However, those who are looking for somewhere a little special to eat out will be spoilt for choice in nearby Warwick or Birmingham, where there are restaurants with Bib Gourmand status and also a number of restaurants with Michelin stars. One local restaurant that has been gaining much attention in the last couple of years, with a mention in both the Michelin Guide and the Guardian Newspaper, is Land (B2 5HU), a plant-based eatery located on Colmore Row in Birmingham.

For those diners looking for food that really hits a spicy note, then Jinseon near the Cathedral( CV1 5SA) is a popular choice serving Korean BBQ. Habibi on Far Gosford Street (CV1 5EA) is great for Arabic food, or try My Dhabba (CV1 3AX) for authentic curries.

Entertainment

If you want to see something of the Old Coventry, then Spon Street is the place to visit at night. This restored medieval street runs through the centre of the city and is a great place to grab a drink and a bite to eat.

Coventry is also home to one of the largest casinos in the UK. The Grosvenor Casino is located just below the Ricoh Arena (CV6 6GE) and, in addition to a wide range of games to test your luck, also hosts talent shows, tribute bands and quiz nights.

The SkyDome is home to Coventry Blaze, the local ice hockey team and when there are no training sessions or games, the rink is open to the general public for skating. There is also a cinema on site. For those that prefer a theatre, Coventry has a number of options, including the Criterion, which is a great venue to watch smaller productions.
