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 Glasgow

About Glasgow

The most populous city in Scotland, Glasgow, is located in the country’s western lowlands on the river Clyde. Famed for its nouveau architecture, the city is now a national cultural hub and home to the Scottish Ballet, the Scottish Opera and a thriving music scene. It is ideally situated as a location to attend a project management course and very easy to get to.

Transport

Glasgow is serviced by a sturdy transport network making it a very accessible city. The Glasgow Airport is just a short bus journey of 15 minutes from the city centre, Glasgow Prestwick Airport is 32 miles away, and there are good public transport links to Glasgow. The city has two train stations, one linking Glasgow to the North of the UK and the other linking it to the south. Getting here by car is also easy with some very good motorway links, the M8 links Glasgow to Edinburgh, the M74 links Glasgow to England and the south and the M80 links to Stirling. For visitors coming from Ireland, Glasgow is also easily accessible from Belfast and Larne and the journey to Glasgow is then completed using the comprehensive public transport system.

Where to Stay

Many project management courses last several days, so it is a good idea to find some local accommodation. Fortunately, Glasgow has plenty of very good hotels to choose from.

Doubletree by Hilton Hotel Glasgow Central

The Doubletree hotel has recently undergone an incredibly extensive programme of refurbishment, and every room has been transformed to a very high standard. The hotel is ideally situated for anyone arriving by train. It is just a 10-minute walk from Glasgow Central station, and also has an onsite car park – although as you might expect from a city centre hotel, this is payable. The facilities, however, are everything you would want when attending a project management training course. There is a business suite and several meeting rooms suitable for training courses.

Holiday Inn – Glasgow – City Centre Theatreland

Another city centre hotel, the Holiday Inn, is a modern hotel offering a great base in the city centre. It is a 5-minute walk from the station, making it very accessible. However, if you prefer to travel by car, the hotel has an arrangement with the NCP car park over the way for heavily discounted parking on validation of your ticket by the hotel. As you would expect from a hotel of this size, there are plenty of onsite meeting rooms with all of the facilities you might need for a training course.

Village Hotel Glasgow

If you prefer a hotel located outside the heart of the city, then the Village Hotel is a great choice. It is still relatively central but far enough from the hustle and bustle of the main centre. It is just 13 minutes drive from Glasgow Airport and a short walk from the train station. This hotel has signed the UNESCO sustainable travel pledge, meaning it is trying to do its bit for the environment. The hotel is a great base for a stay in Glasgow as part of a training course. It has an indoor pool, health club and restaurant, as well as a range of business services.

Meeting rooms for a training course in Glasgow

All of the hotels we have mentioned have large meeting room facilities that can be hired for training courses. Some people prefer to stay and do their training in the same hotel; however, it is understandable that you may want to separate the two. Fortunately, there are plenty of meeting rooms available in Glasgow.

Regus – 1 West Regent Street, Glasgow, G2 1RW

Regus offer plenty of options for meeting room hire in city-centre locations. With four different locations listed for Glasgow City Centre, this is the perfect solution for your training course requirements. All venues offered by Regus are well equipped and modern, providing facilities to make sure your raining is a success.

Meetingo – 100 West George Street, Glasgow, G2 1PP

Another company specialising in meeting rooms, Meetingo have four facilities in the city centre. They also have a further one in Lanarkshire a short drive away. Their meeting rooms are fully equipped for training courses and are located in buildings with breakout areas and onsite catering. All are conveniently placed for local transport links making them the ideal solution for all your training course requirements.

Things To Do

If your training course lasts a few days, then take advantage of the opportunities that Glasgow has to offer.

Restaurants

When it comes to restaurants, you will be spoilt for choice in Glasgow City centre. There is a fantastic range of different cuisines to choose from, everything from Indian to Chinese, Mexican to Italian.

If you fancy trying somewhere a little special, then Glasgow is home to not one but two Michelin star restaurants. Cali Bruich, which is located in Glasgow’s West End, has been home to Chef Lorna McNee – Champion of Champions from the 2019 Great British Menu – since 2020. The restaurant has recently retained its Michelin star, and McNee is the only female chef in Scotland to currently hold a Michelin star, something she managed in just five short months. The restaurant pride itself on championing quality seasonal British produce.

The other restaurant holding a Michelin star in Glasgow is Unalome by Grahame Cheevers. Located on Kelvingrove Street, the restaurant offers a modern menu with more unusual ingredients with an emphasis on tasting menus.

Entertainment

From Candlelit clubs to the more traditional pub, Glasgow has a social scene that is thriving. In fact, many would say it is one of the best in Britain. Whether you want to try a microbrewery or prefer an evening of dancing and music, the city has it all.

Glasgow is also a city of culture and home to a number of theatres you might want to visit. There is also the Scottish Opera and even the Scottish Ballet. If live music is your thing, then don’t forget to visit King Tut’s Wah Wah Hut in Glasgow centre. The venue is famous as a place where up and coming bands can be found; in 1993, Oasis were signed following a gig here.
