Parallel Project Training, an innovative new specialist training provider in APM project management training and APMP certification, has received outstanding feedback from customers who attended the company’s first training courses in March and April. The exam pass rate on the March course was 100%, all students passed.
The courses were a mixture of three and five day events led by a fully qualified and experienced tutor offering students an integrated approach to their learning with a wide range of pre-course study options. The programmes have been designed to follow the same structure as the APMP syllabus and offer students the opportunity to enhance their skills and best practice knowledge in project management in order to pass the APMP exam. Students are also coached on how to apply the APM principles to their own projects. Students are able to confidently sit the APM Professional exam with a clear understanding of what is required to pass. They also take away a thorough understanding of the benefits of deploying project management within an organisation.
All students receive a high quality APMP exam study guide prior to the course start date, which allows them to prepare and coordinate their study plans. The study guide explains the APM Body of Knowledge in simple steps, including sample exam questions and helpful templates. The course is also broken down into seven APM accredited e-learning modules which integrate seamlessly with the study guide as well as MP3 podcasts that cover all the important topics included in the APMP Exam, which students must sit on the last day of the course.
The courses cost from £935, which is probably the best value around “a properly keen price” said one student. Others, commenting on what they liked about the course said: “I learnt more in the first morning than in the entire six days of the previous course when I failed the exam”. Other comments included praise for the knowledgeable instructor with vast experience and that the blended e-learning option was especially useful when used alongside the study guide. They also liked a clear set of objectives for the course and a focus on results. “I really liked the podcasts, they’re really useful for the car” said one very busy student.
