    APM PFQ (Introductory Certificate) course review

    The PFQ (APM IC) was for me a good introduction into understanding the ‘Project Management’ world better. It helped me to identify areas and processes that I am not yet familiar with but I now have more confidence in tackling. Passing this course has further confirmed that I do want to go on to study for the APMP qualification. Chelsea B.

    PRINCE2 Foundation and Practitioner course review

    I attended the project management qualification in December (having already attended the PRINCE2 course in November). Although a challenging subject, I found that the training was engaging because there was adequate time to not only listen but to also give examples and hear examples from other individuals from the class. This aids to help people’s understanding or misunderstanding in some cases and help breakdown the subject into easier chunks. It also helps that IPSO FACTO have in my opinion some of the most experienced instructors in the country, meaning that if you just don’t get something they bring their personal experience into the story to help your understanding.

    PRINCE2 Foundation and Practitioner course review

    I just wanted to write and say how much I enjoyed the PRINCE2 course last week. The whole Ipso-Facto experience was brilliant, from your prompt help in providing information to determine whether the course was going to be right for me and arranging for Tim to call me, through registration and the quality of the preparation materials sent out, to starting the course with Julia Gosse. Julia is a fantastic trainer who not only clearly has bags of experience in project and business management but is also a very highly skilled trainer. Whilst there was a huge amount to learn, she made it easy to absorb and tolerated enormous amounts of questions with patience and kindness.

    The venue was easy to get to and we definitely appreciated the surroundings including the lovely cafe for lunch and the lake. I will definitely recommend Ipso-Facto as a local training provider and will come to you first if you are running courses I am interested in for the future.

    Oh and I passed both foundation and practitioner exams! [Rebecca S]

    APM Project Management Qualification (PMQ) course review

    I completed the PMQ course through IPSO FACTO and they were a pleasure to work with from the moment I first made an enquiry. Every piece of course administration was made simple for me and the classroom facilities were just perfect. The course instructor was professional, knew the subject very well and focused our learning in a practical way to help put it into perspective. Overall, a very professional experience and I would recommend IPSO FACTO as a quality training company. Thank you. [Scott Sellars]

    Microsoft Excel level 2 course review

    The Excel Level 2 course was brilliant. Having not had much experience of using Excel, I wasn’t sure how much I’d learn but Tim the course tutor was great and went at a good pace, making sure I understood as we went along. I learnt things I wouldn’t have had a clue about before including; Conditional Formatting, Range Names, Pivot Tables, IF Functions, Vlookups and a range of shortcuts to make daily tasks much quicker. I’m looking forward to putting It into practice. Would definitely recommend!  Kirsty R.
