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 Crawley

About Crawley

Crawley is a large town located in the South of England. It is just 28 miles south of London and close to the coast with Brighton and Hove just 18 miles away. Crawley and its surroundings form one of the most dynamic business locations in the UK, where headquarters are located for major financial, tech and utility companies. When it comes to locations that might be suitable for attending a project management training course, Crawley has everything that you could need.

Transport

With its close proximity to London, Crawley is a very easy location to get to. It is close to Gatwick Airport so also easy access by plane, making it a good location to reach from other places further afield in the UK and also from abroad. It is also situated on a main railway line offering easy linking opportunities to other locations in the country and is well-connected via the motorway network with the M23 running just past it and the M25 only 16 miles away.

Crawley itself is easy to drive around and has a good bus network making it simple to navigate for those attending project management courses in Crawley.

Where to Stay

Whether you are looking for a hotel right in the heart of Crawley to stay at while attending a face-to-face classroom-based project management course, or accommodation slightly further away, there are plenty of great hotels here with all of the modern amenities you might want.

Arora Hotel Gatwick

As the name would suggest the Arora hotel is located just a short distance from Gatwick Airport, making it a great choice if you are flying in to attend your course – and there is a free shuttle service available between airport and hotel. It is also very close to the railway station and benefits from a large onsite carpark. The hotel offers good sized rooms and has its own business centre and a number of meeting rooms. Training course can be run from the hotel and accommodation provided in the same location for ease of access if required.

Crowne Plaza London, Gatwick Hotel

A member of the IGH group, the Crowne Plaza is a popular choice with those people who are looking for a well-equipped hotel. The rooms are modern and spacious, the hotel has several dining opportunities and a business centre and gym. As well as the onsite business centre the hotel also has fully equipped meeting rooms so, again, training course can be run from the hotel and accommodation provided in the same location for ease of access if required.

Sofitel London Gatwick Hotel

Linked to the airport by a walkway, this hotel is extremely convenient for delegates flying in for a training course in Crawley. It is a 30 minute train journey from London and just 20 minutes from Brighton. It also has a good onsite carpark for anyone travelling in their own vehicle. The hotel benefits from good disabled access as well. It is a great choice for training courses and for delegate accommodation.

Training Course Locations in Crawley

Nowadays the majority of bigger hotels, particularly those that are part of a chain, have meeting rooms that are often used for training courses. The hotels we have mentioned in our accommodation section also have a good range of meeting rooms. Attending a training course in a meeting room in the hotel you are staying at is obviously convenient, however, sometimes it can be preferable to attend a training course a completely different location to provide a break between your training sessions and the rest of the day. With this in mind here are some suggestions for alternative training venues in Crawley.

Regus

Sites like Regus are a great place to attend a training course. They have a venue in Crawley at The Pinnacle and another nearby at Gatwick. Their spaces are modern, spacious, and well equipped for a range of different types of training course.

Meetingo

Another site that is used for project management training courses in Crawley is Meetingo. If you are attending a course here you will also have access to parking options and onsite catering as well as being able to take advantage of the transport infrastructure that services Crawley and the surroundings.

Other Hotels

Other hotels in the Crawley area where you might attend a training course include The Ramada located at High St, Crawley RH10 1BS, or The Holiday Inn at Crabbet Park, Turners Hill Rd, Worth, Crawley RH10 4SS.

Whatever venue your training course is held at in or near Crawley you can be sure of an excellent quality meeting room with all associated facilities and with refreshments available.

Things To Do

Of course, your training course in Crawley will only take up normal working hours, so you may want to fill the rest of your day seeing some of the things that Crawley and the local area has to offer.

Restaurants

Crawley has a surprisingly eclectic selection of restaurants from gastro pubs to Thai, Indian Fusion to Caribbean so you are sure to find somewhere great to eat in the evening. If you don’t mind travelling a little further afield then you may want to go into the centre of Brighton, very easily managed on the train, where you will find a wider choice of restaurants and other entertainment.

Entertainment

During the daytime you will find plenty of parks in Crawley where you can have a walk and get some fresh air during the breaks from your training course, in the evening the entertainment in the town is predominately pubs so you may want to look further afield for entertainment. Brighton is just a short journey away on public transport and will offer you a little more variety.

No matter whether you’re attending project management training in Crawley on your own or with your whole team, this information will give you some brief insight into the area.
