Course Name
MoP - Management of Portfolios Foundation


Very useful course

The content of this course is excellent. I now have clarity on what I need to do at work and looking forward to implementing what I have learnt. It would be useful to learn a bit more on how those that have been on the course have implemented the methodology and the challenges they may have faced. QA\'s venue at Katherines Dock is great and everyone is really friendly. The class size was small and the trainer very supportive. I recommend the course.

Great support and atmosphere

QA provided everything that was needed to pass the course. Mark, the trainer, was very knowledgeable and engaging, whilst being able to cater to the different needs and knowledge levels of the group.

Interesting, Useful, and Effective

I took this course because as a contract PMO I find myself in Programme Offices relatively frequently and wanted a theoretical grounding in PgM to complement PRINCE2. At times the course felt a bit like an "exam pass factory", homing in on certain points because they come up often in the exams (but let's face it - everybody there of course would have wanted to pass the exam). The training materials supplied by QA seemed to be of good quality, but I didn't refer to them much as you are not allowed to take them into the exam. A couple of the materials supplied were diagrams not in the Axelos book; I suspect these will be useful back at work after the course. The real benefit of the course came from the class discussions - clarifying points, correcting misconceptions, and cementing understanding. The instructor was clearly experienced and knowledgeable, and delivered the training well. All things considered, I recommend this course.

Precise and concise training

Materials both pre and during the training were useful, especially as I had done the foundation course 1 year previous to the practitioner.

Gets you through the exam

This is one of many courses I have attended with QA Ltd - they are local to my workplace so a convenient venue. The not so good: QA provide traditional classroom training based on a set curriculum that has little flexibility due to time constraints. All training providers of this type have the same constraints, so this is not a criticism of QA in particular but of the modus opperandi. It means that the courses often feel rushed in order to fit everything in, and inflexible as a result. It also means they tend to concentrate on what will get you through the exam rather than using the methodology in real life. The good: That being said, QA provide professional trainers who are experienced in the fields they train in (i.e. they aren't just theoreticians), and they usually do their best to field questions and relate the material to the real world - within the above limitation.

P3O Foundation


A great way to improve your PMO knowledge and learn from other\'s experiences

Classroom environment is the most effective for me as I learnt so much from other people\'s experiences. Theory is one thing but you cannot buy that kind of lessons learnt! P3O book was a little difficult to read in places - pictures and text didn\'t quite match up so you flick between pages to relate the content but not a drama. Course tutor was fantastic - really encouraged talking amongst the group, using the time more effectively in conversation and then covered the critical aspects of the syllabus. He made the difference. I learnt to accept that the course will not give you an explicit answer on things like \'what makes an effective PMO\', only that it depends on each circumstance. This is where the group discussion was really helpful. Cannot recommend this enough - it\'s a book I refer back to many times to keep me honest.

Great course, good follow on from P3O

Really enjoyed the course and it was a good follow on from P3O. I also still use the book as a reference guide in my day to day job role.
