Reading, UK. 31 October 2011: The Association for Project Management Practitioner Qualification (APM PQ) is an internationally recognised project management qualification aimed at project professionals experienced in managing non-complex projects. It provides experienced project managers with the opportunity to display their capabilities in planning and controlling projects, managing risks and major change, and working effectively as a project team member in addition to demonstrating their understanding of project management techniques. APM PQ project management training involves assessment of individual work based on case studies and current project management issues, discussions and problem-solving in groups, and candidate interviews.

Reading-based training company Parallel Project Training has recently embarked on a collaboration with Carnegie Enterprise to deliver their 3-day APM PQ training course at the Carnegie Conference Centre in Dunfermline, Fife from 19th – 21st December 2011. Parallel Project Training is an accredited APM PQ training provider and offers APM training and coaching at a variety of locations across the UK at every stage from Introductory Level right through to the prestigious Registered Project Professional credential. They offer a comprehensive approach to project management training by promoting project management professionalism through both qualifications and continuous professional development in response to growing demand from individuals and organisations.
