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

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!

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.

About Nottingham

About Nottingham

Nottingham is a city located in central England and is famous for its part in the legend of Robin Hood, it is home to the Nottingham Castle Museum and Art Gallery which stands on a hilltop on a site where there has been a building since the mediaeval era. The Lace Market area of the city is also famous and was one the centre of the global lace industry. More recently, in 2015, the city was named the “Home of English Sport” for its role as a major sporting centre. Nottingham is a university city steeped in history and a great place to visit for business, training courses and leisure.

Getting to Nottingham by public transport is relatively easy. Thanks to the abundance of high speed trains, the journey from London to Nottingham takes just 1 hour 45 minutes. The extensive train network connects Nottingham to other large cities with Manchester taking just over 1 hour 30 minutes. There is also a good National Express coach service to Nottingham for those who prefer to travel by road but don’t want to drive.

East Midlands Airport is the closest one to Nottingham and links the area to numerous other cities including Belfast, Glasgow and Edinburgh. Connections from the airport to the centre of the city are either by bus or train. There are also taxis and a car rental location at the airport to make the journey even easier.

Getting to Nottingham by road from the North or South of the country is also easy as it is close to the M1. There are also good links via the M42 to the M5 for the Southwest, South Wales and the West Country. The M62, M60 and A50 connect Nottingham to the Northwest.

Where to Stay

There are plenty of excellent hotels both in and around Nottingham that will make a great base – here are a few to choose from.

St James Hotel at 1 Rutland St, Nottingham NG1 6FL

This is a very centrally located hotel from the Best Western Premier Collection with payable onsite parking. There are plenty of accessible parking spaces available. It is a short walk from 2 train stations and also plenty of bars and restaurants. The rooms are a good size and benefit from free Wi-Fi whilst there are also meeting rooms onsite that can be booked for holding your project management training course.

Park Plaza at 41 Maid Marian Way, Nottingham NG1 6GD

Another very centrally located hotel from the Radisson group, this is a good choice for those courses with international attendees due to its short airport commute and impressive range of languages spoken. Due to its central location, there is limited onsite parking and it is expensive, however the hotel is close to the train station making it a good option for those who prefer to use public transport. This is a Green/sustainable hotel with measures being taken to improve the impact that the hotel has on the environment and the surrounding area.

Crowne Plaza in Wollaton St, Nottingham NG1 5RH

In the city centre, this hotel has on-site parking and a good restaurant but is just a few minutes’ walk from a wide choice of other restaurants and pubs. As you’d expect of a Crowne Plaza the rooms have a desk, laptop safe and good Wi-Fi if you need to catch up on some work while on your training course. The hotel also has a spa with a swimming pool, Jacuzzi and steam room; plus a gym. It is also walking distance to Nottingham train station and the University of Nottingham is just 1.5 miles away.

Things To Do

If you are staying in Nottingham for a couple of days, you will probably want to find good places to eat out and maybe something to do in the evening.

Restaurants

There are a staggering 13 restaurants with Michelin stars in the Nottingham area, two of which are located in the heart of the city.

Alchemilla on Derby Road (NG7 1NF) is a recent recipient of a coveted Michelin Star. This is a restaurant that blends flavours and textures to play with patrons’ perceptions of the food. They have a tasting menu which showcases plant based ingredients whilst offering a supporting role to meat and fish. The menu is full of interesting surprises with something for everyone and a range of different menus to suit different budgets.

Restaurant Sat Bains is one of just 23 restaurants in the UK and Ireland to have two stars, an award they have held since 2011. The restaurant’s unusual location on Lenton Lane (NG7 2SA) often attracts comments but the food is well worth a trip to this exceptional restaurant. The menu features surprising textures, unusual flavour and skilful techniques. There is an incredible tasting menu featuring each of the “five tastes” and the restaurant even has its own beehives. The wine pairings are also worthy of a note and have been designed to showcase each dish perfectly.

For those diners who are looking for something a little simpler there are plenty of restaurants in Nottingham offering a range of international dishes, from curries to burger, pasta to Mexican.

Entertainment

Nottingham is a vibrant city with a fantastic nightlife. There are plenty of traditional pubs to visit but one that you may want to make time to see is Ye Olde Trip to Jerusalem which is believed to be the oldest pub in England and dates back to the time of Richard the Lionheart. If cocktails are more your thing, then head to the Boilermaker Bar for plenty of interesting concoctions.

The Theatre Royal and Royal Concert Hall is one of the most successful touring venues in the UK and offers a very diverse programme of evening entertainments with something to suit everybody. If you would prefer a gig, then head over to the Metronome where they offer everything from music to live comedy and even some live broadcasts.

You will also find plenty of sports events in Nottingham which make a great way to spend the evening.
