Carmen Campos

A project management consultant with expertise in APM courses and bespoke project management training development and delivery. Carmen is passionate about project management and supporting project professionals in their learning and development journey. She fully understands the demands and dedication required to successfully obtain APM qualifications and coaches individuals at all levels from PFQ and PMQ right up to ChPP level. Prior to becoming a training consultant, she had 14 years’ experience managing multinational complex engineering projects for several industries such as global chemical manufacturing, wind energy, welding inspection, and automation technologies for bioprocessing and laboratory applications.

  • Master’s degree in Industrial Engineering
  • APM ChPP Chartered Project Professional
  • APM Project Management Qualification (PMQ)
  • APM Project Management Qualification (PFQ)
  • APM Member

As part of my current role as a training consultant, I felt that my personal experience of gaining chartered status would enable me to help other people to growth in their project management careers. Becoming a ChPP has given me an opportunity to make a difference and help people to progress professionally. It allows me to be part of their development journey through all the levels and qualifications from Project Fundamental (PFQ) and Project Management Qualification (PMQ) and up to ChPP level. Going through the process myself has also taught me the commitment and dedication required to successfully pass, which serves me well when trying to coach and support others to obtain ChPP in the future.

Sam HillsSam Hills ★★★★★ 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.AaronAaron ★★★★★ Excellent course and really well led by Tyrone. Great method of getting the key information across and really informative.Richard NurseRichard Nurse ★★★★☆ 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,RichardRico CraigieRico Craigie ★★★★★ Amazing course and highly recommended. Carmen was very knowledgeable and easy to understand in order to pass the APM PMQ exam.Tom MurphyTom Murphy ★★★★★ Excellent training delivered by Paul Naybour; would recommend to anyone pursuing APM qualificationsNosherwan AliNosherwan Ali ★★★★★ 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!Ben DoughtyBen Doughty ★★★★☆ 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.Christopher GreenChristopher Green ★★★☆☆ 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.Thomas MadathiparampilThomas Madathiparampil ★★★★★ 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.Nicola EvansNicola Evans ★★★★★ 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!Leigh HaywoodLeigh Haywood ★★★★★ 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.Amanda LAmanda L ★★★★★ Brilliant. Great support and presented very wellMartyna MasiewiczMartyna Masiewicz ★★☆☆☆ 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.Rebecca UnwinRebecca Unwin ★★★★★ 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.Jon CumminsJon Cummins ★★★★★ Fantastic quality training by excellent tutors. Highly recommended.Mr JonesMr Jones ★★★★★ 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.Cam WoodhouseCam Woodhouse ★★★★★ 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.Karolis SerenasKarolis Serenas ★★★★★ 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.Saad JanjuaSaad Janjua ★★★★★ Excellent service provided. The trainers are qualified and well informed. I would recommend.Victoria OddieVictoria Oddie ★★★★★ Very Professional and supportive organisation - coached me through my ChPP and I passed!Richard SayellRichard Sayell ★★★★☆ 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.Costanza BellingeriCostanza Bellingeri ★★★★★ 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!siris sirissiris siris ★★★★★ 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.Ben HeathBen Heath ★★★★★ 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.Deborah MottaDeborah Motta ★★★☆☆ 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".Irine CheptooIrine Cheptoo ★★★★★ Good training service offered for professionals. Would 100% recommend.Shane MussellShane Mussell ★★★★★ Great packages available and very well ran with lots of useful feedback throughout. Highly recommended and yes I'll be back for more :)Sharon HerkesSharon Herkes ★★★★★ 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!Heather MccraeHeather Mccrae ★★★★★ 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.T TilaT Tila ★★★★★ Great course, provided in a professional and easy to navigate platform with forums to ask questions and feedback.Rob MashfordRob Mashford ★★★★★ 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.Mike FossMike Foss ★★★★★ Achieved by ChPP accrediation first time...with excellent support from PPT. ThanksOkunrin MetaOkunrin Meta ★★★★★ The instructor is very methodical, the delivery method was online and it worked very well (fist time online for me). The instructors are very accessible too. overall experience was very pleasant.Daniel PollittDaniel Pollitt ★★★★★ The support provided by John at Parallel Project Training was excellent, exceeding my initial expectations. They adopt a very personalised approach that really focused on my development.js_loader
About Falmouth

About Falmouth

Falmouth is a stunning town on the Cornish coast. Located in the southwest of England, it has plenty of attractions to recommend it as a destination.

Transport

Falmouth is serviced by a robust transport network making it an easy town to get to. By road, the journey is relatively simple once you reach Exeter as you can join the newly improved A30, which will offer you some stunning scenery over Bodmin Moor and Dartmouth, before joining the A39, which will bring you directly to Falmouth. The Great Western Railway offers you an easily accessible train route with a branch line linking Falmouth directly to the main line at Truro.

Newquay airport can be reached from a number of European destinations as well as several UK locations. From the airport, it is just a short taxi ride to Falmouth. Falmouth can also be reached using the National Express coach service for a stress-free journey.

Where to Stay

Face-to-face, classroom-based project management courses can last up to a week so finding suitable accommodation is a must. Fortunately, there are plenty of suitable smaller hotels in the area; if you prefer a chain hotel, then you may want to consider hotels in Truro for your stay.

The Falmouth Hotel, Castle Beach, Falmouth TR11 4NZ

Located right in the centre of Falmouth, this is a 4-star hotel with plenty of facilities. Parking is included in the price, and there is free wifi and also business services available at the hotel, making it a great choice for those who may need to stay in touch with the office whilst attending a training course. The train station is just an 8-minute walk away and the airport a 40-minute drive. The hotel is wheelchair accessible as well. The hotel benefits from its own meeting room so it could be the base for your training course as well.

Hotel Meudon, Maenporth Rd, Mawnan Smith, Maenporth, Falmouth TR11 5HT

Located a few miles outside the centre of Falmouth, the Hotel Meudon is a country house hotel with large grounds and its own private beach. There is plenty of parking and free wifi in the hotel. This is a very good choice of hotel for disabled access and they also cater very well to a range of different dietary requirements. If you want a hotel that is completely separate from your training course location and gives you the chance to unwind, then this is a superb choice.

Membly Hall Hotel, Cliff Rd, Falmouth TR11 4NT

Steeped in history, this family-run hotel located right on the beach offers something a little different. The hotel has plenty of free onsite parking, and Wi-Fi is available throughout the building. With an onsite restaurant and some leisure facilities, the hotel is easy to get to and provides a great base from which to attend a training course in the vicinity.

Meeting rooms for training courses in Falmouth

Hotels in the Falmouth area tend to be either family run with an emphasis on holidaymakers or on the smaller side, which means that you will probably need to look a little further away for the sort of larger meeting room facilities that you would want to hire for any training course requirements.

Bridge House, Melvill Rd, Falmouth TR11 4GJ

Located in Falmouth, Bridge House is the location of Falmouth Training Solutions. They are a small company with two meeting rooms available to hire. Each of these is suitable for up to 20 people, making them a very good choice for smaller training courses. Bridge House has onsite parking, overhead projectors, wireless broadband and connectivity, and refreshment facilities. The central location means there is no need for onsite catering as there are plenty of local places to get food during your course.

St Mawes Castle, Castle Dr, St Mawes, Truro TR2 5DE

Another Falmouth location and certainly one with something a little different to offer, St Mawes Castle, has a couple of rooms that are available to hire for events or training. They offer all of the facilities that you would need for a successful training course.

Best Western Penmere Manor Hotel, Mongleath Rd, Falmouth TR11 4PN

A 3-star hotel located a little over a mile outside the centre of Falmouth. The Penmere Manor Hotel is one of the few hotels you will find in Falmouth with large meeting room facilities. There is good onsite parking, free Wi-Fi and their meeting room is furnished with everything you could need on a training course.

Things To Do

If your training course is set to run for several days, then Falmouth is a wonderful area to explore with plenty of ways to spend your downtime. Here is just a sample of some of the things this wonderful area has to offer:

Restaurants

Whilst there are some truly incredible places to eat in Falmouth itself, as you would expect given the proliferation of fresh seafood and fish right on their doorstep, there is only one Michelin star restaurant. Hooked on the Rocks, as the name would suggest, is a spacious modern bistro specialising in seafood. The restaurant is relatively new to the Michelin “family”, having its first mention in the guide in 2021. The food is fresh and contemporary and takes its inspiration from the wonderful local ingredients.

Of course, when it comes to eateries in Falmouth, you will find that there are plenty to choose from. From smaller bistros to gastropubs, traditional fish and chip restaurants to places specialising in seafood, the one thing you can be assured of is incredibly fresh well-cooked food.

Entertainment

If you are looking for somewhere with a thriving nightlight that offers plenty of clubs, then Falmouth isn’t that location. However, what Falmouth may lack in clubs, it more than makes up for with its spectacular selection of bars. This is not somewhere where you will find any of the big-name bars or pubs but rather a selection of smaller individual establishments with their own unique quirks.

Beerwolf Books Freehouse is a very quirky place to get a drink and browse a rather wonderful selection of books for a completely different evening drinking concept. You will also find The Games Room in the heart of Falmouth. Again they offer something a little different. Aside from the more usual pool that you might expect to find, they also have a wide range of board games, table tennis and even shuffleboard to keep you occupied. They also have a good range of beer, cider and spirits on offer.
