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!

I have just completed the 2 day virtual course for the APM - PFQ qualification which I found excellent. Michelle was our tutor and she took us through all the content in a logical and clear way covering everything we needed to sit the exam on day 2. Michelle was welcoming and very knowledgeable on the content, she made the virtual learning experience enjoyable and engaging. I would definitely recommend Parallel Training to other people considering studying for qualifications in project management.

I recently passed my APM PFQ with Parallel Project Training with Paul Naybour. The course was well laid out, the use of a virtual class in the comfort of your home was brilliant, along with different methods of teaching by Paul. Paul is definitely an expert with fountains of knowledge and experience and breaks everything down brilliantly. I will definitely be using this company again for my APM PMQ when I get to that stage.

I found the format and delivery of the training really excellent. Lots of resources and good mix of the live webinar with homework and other resources to go into depth. Small group in the webinar which made the learning quite personal and Paul was both knowledgeable and approachable.

Parallel Project Training were instrumental in preparing me for a successful ChPP application with the APM. I missed three training sessions organised through my conmpany due to foreign travel but kept up to date online. John Bolton and his entire team were extremely professional and very responsive to my requirements. The approach of the training team was very thorough and I particularly appreciated the tough practice interview which was basically a SWOT session that identified areas to work on prior to the interview itself. I was not entirely surprised to attain chartership on my first try, thanks to Parallel Training. I highly recommend Parallel Training for project management professionals

Really enjoyed the APM-Project Fundamentals online course taken over the last week. Michelle is a brilliant teacher who was able to link the content to real life examples, with a friendly but highly informative style. The course content is very practical and easily adapted to different organisations, sectors and working styles. Not only did we learn as a team over a very interactive couple of webinar sessions, we were provided with a Moodle page (with podcasts and quizzes) and a fantastic textbook, which I am sure I will refer to again and again. The course packs in a lot of content but was delivered perfectly, with plenty of breaks and time to mull over, question and put ideas in to practice.

Very rarely do I leave reviews. It’s lazy I suppose, but by the same token service that goes above and beyond is rare. In this case a review is fully justified. I joined having struggled to self study for a PMQ exam and Paul and the team were incredibly helpful. I owe them a huge part of managing to pass and would recommend their courses to anyone.

Had an excellent week intensive PMQ course with Parallel. We had Michelle as our lecturer who was very knowledgeable, patient and helpful. She delivered our course in an easy to understand way and did a great job of preparing us all for the exam. Course material was accessible and varied, certainly no death from PowerPoint.I'd definitely recommend and use again myself.

I attended a virtual 2 day APM Project Fundamentals Qualification course with Michelle. Having signed up last minute, I was posted a comprehensive study guide arriving within 24hours, I also had access to an online portal with videos and podcasts reinforcing the material from the study guide. The course itself was engaging and interactive, with study breaks for completing tasks and self-learning. There was plenty of time to ask questions. Michelle broke down what seemed like an awful lot of information into digestable chunks and really highlighted differences between pieces. I passed with a high percentage. I would highly recommend Parallel for anyone looking to gain an understanding in project management.

I have recently completed the APM PMQ using the online self-study option and the exam prep-morning with Paul.The learning materials (online, podcasts and the study guide) were well written and contained all the information that I needed to pass the exam with a good mark.The exam preparation morning was particularly useful for consolidating my learning and getting my exam answer technique dialled before sitting the exam in the afternoon.Parallel were also fast to respond to any questions that I had throughout my learning. The change from BoK6 to BoK7 occurred during my studies and my options were clearly explained to allow me to decide which exam to sit.I would highly recommend Parallel to anyone looking to obtain an APM qualification, whether you chose to attend a taught course or self-study like myself.

I recently passed the APM PMQ after attending a week long training course provided by Parallel Project Training. The course context and delivery were excellent under the tutelage of Jan Underdown. The podcasts and videos that were available from Parallel prior to the course were the perfect preparation to complement the coursework. I would have no hesitation in highly recommending Parallel Project Training to any interested party.

The study guide and podcasts were excellent. Paul Naybour's words of wisdom, giving helpful feedback throughout the distance learning and at the final exam preparation session, proved invaluable. In particular, providing feedback on the level of relevant detail required in exam answers was extremely useful. It is definitely worth going through the typical exam questions, which are found throughout the study guide, a number of times. Thank you Paul and team!

Would definitely recommend Parallel Project Training for project management courses. I recently completed the APM PFQ course that was expertly taught by Adrian Wilson. He was an engaging and knowledgeable trainer who made the 2 days a thoroughly enjoyable learning experience. The course content (both in class and via online podcasts and resources) was very comprehensive and as a result I felt very confident with my new knowledge when it came to taking the exam. I came away with enthusiasm to put new skills into practice as I pursue a career in project management and look forward to taking further courses with Parallel in the future.

Parallel Projects came to our organisation and carried out a 5 day training course for the APM PMQ.It was a really enjoyable interactive course, not just the usual dry powerpoint presentations. The course material, books/example papers, were really helpful to help understand the exam technique required to pass the the exam!
