What Our Clients Say…

"I would like to express my gratitude for your help and support in securing my place on the Prince2 course and also the assistance given to me in the run up to the start of the training - I found it a great deal of help in my preparation and I'm sure it contributed to the result I gained.

I really cannot say enough good things about the trainer Datrix assigned to our course - as I told you yesterday I have been a participant in numerous business related training courses over the time I have been working, and I have to say that he is almost certainly the best trainer I have encountered up to now. His manner and familiarity with the material not only puts you at your ease but also, I find, gives you absolute confidence in what you're learning, which in my view is a vital part of taking the information on board and putting it all together mentally."

Project Manager

"I really enjoyed the course. I don't think I've ever worked so intensely and it definitely wasn't easy, but the trainer really made it interesting and I'm really glad I did it! It was lovely to hear the news over the phone and it really cheered me up - especially after hearing I am to be made redundant the day before."

Project Manager

“I would have no hesitation in commending Paul of PBA Training to any organisation who may be considering using his training delivery and consulting skills. He has proved himself as a provider of high quality, customer focused and valued training.

Our client feedback confirms his excellent engagement and rapport with learners, ensuring that their learning experience is of relevance to them and their employers. Paul possesses a personal manner that enables his trainees to relax, enjoy and value his teaching.

Paul also brings a high quality of reliability, consistency and personal presentation that has proved his ambassadorial value when working for Kingsway Consulting with our clients.”

Business Development Manager

"I thought our trainer was brilliant and now that I know I have passed, I can say that with conviction. He knew his material and had a very structured presentation.

Tony had lots of practical examples to share which helped to explain some of the theory. He was lively and encouraged the group to interact with each other. I‘m still amazed that he managed to get through as much material as he did in one week and make it so interesting at the same time. The venue was an excellent choice in both quality and location for public transport links.

My organisation has used training bodies other than Datrix and I have not heard many glowing reports about the trainers or the venues used. I particularly liked having a phone call to tell me that I had passed, others in my organisation have found out their results pass and fail, by seeing their name on the APM website."
Pauline Jones
Service Delivery Manager

"Thanks very much for this, you’ve made my day! Please pass on a big thank you to the trainer. He certainly knows his subject matter inside out and makes the training light hearted and interesting as well. Not sure about the racing car stories though!"

APM Courses

Association for Project Management (APM) training

As an APM Accredited Training Provider, QA offers a training route to both the benchmark APMP qualification and the Introductory Certificate in Project Management (IC). Our approach is to provide delegates with a combination of practical skills development together with the coaching required to pass the examinations, making QA’s project management training a popular choice for hundreds of delegates.

Why undertake APM certification?

The APM is established as the leading professional body for project management in the UK and APM qualifications are accepted throughout the UK as a mark of attaining a recognised level of Project Management knowledge and skills. APM qualifications are aligned to the International Project Management Association (IPMA) competency levels, and as such enjoy international recognition.

What is involved in APM certification?

  • APM Introductory Certificate (APMIC) – this qualification is aimed at anyone requiring a basic awareness of project management. The one hour multi-choice examination, based on key sections of the APM’s Body of Knowledge (5th edition), is offered as an option for all those attending QA’s Fundamentals of Project Management course. This highly acclaimed course has benefited over 1,000 delegates in the past 5 years.
  • APMP – this is APM’s qualification for existing and aspiring Project Managers which equates to IPMA level D. The three hour long answer examination is based on the APM’s Body of Knowledge (5th edition). QA’s new 5 day APMP Project Management Course provides delegates with comprehensive coverage of the sections of the Body of Knowledge included in the APMP syllabus.  There is also an APMP for PRINCE2 Practitioners course that enables current PRINCE2 practitioners to take a fast-track to the APMP exam.
  • APM Practitioner Qualification (APMPQ) – this is APM’s assessment-based qualification for experienced Project Managers (3-5 years +) which equates to IPMA level C. The 2.5 day assessment centre puts candidates in a non-complex project scenario where they will need to demonstrate their skills and behaviours against 30 cirteria throughout the project lifecycle and aligned with the APM’s Body of Knowledge (5th edition).
  • APM Risk Levels 1 & 2 – This course covers the benefits of managing project risks, the principles including the process and its application, organisational and control aspects. The exam syllabus is primarily based on the APM BoK, the APM PRAM Guide, and BS6079 Parts 1 & 3.
