Which Learning Method is Right For You?

“Learning is the process whereby knowledge is created through the transformation of experience”

 (Kolb, 1984, p. 38)

At 20/20, our approach to learning delivery is based on the latest and most effective thinking to ensure that skills are transferred effectively into the workplace.  We continually work to improve the way we deliver our courses and work hard to ensure we provide modern and interactive learning methods.

Whilst traditional classroom training is still popular, 20/20 have recognised the needs of today’s learners.  We understand that it is not always possible to take time from work or home life to attend training courses offsite and therefore we have moved some our most popular APM courses to an online portal where learners can complete courses fully online through self-study and at their own pace.

However, we understand that everyone has different needs when it comes to learner.  So, as well as classroom and online, we have created a blended learning option, whereby learners can still benefits from interactive classroom session as well as benefitting from our online portal to complete parts of the course as suits.

So, which learning option is best suited to you? Here we will discuss how each learning method is carried out for each of our courses and guide you to the best training solution for you.


Project Fundamentals Qualification (PFQ)

Our Online APM PFQ is approximately 25 hours of e-learning and allows you to study at your own pace and in your own time. The online course is fully interactive with several tests, games and challenges to ensure that you are embedding the information.

You can also complete the PFQ exam online, making the course completely virtual.

Project Management Qualification (PMQ)

The Online PMQ covers 13 self-study modules which take on average, 35 hours to complete.  As with our PFQ Online option, our online PMQ includes interactive tests & challenges to help embed knowledge, whilst allowing you to complete the modules at your own pace.  For our online only option, there is no ability to take the exam at the end of the course, for this, please see our blended option.

If you prefer to study within your own time and at your own pace, then this is our online learning options are for you.  Our online training allows to take the time to absorb the information as you feel necessary to and take the exam when you are ready.


Project Fundamentals Qualification (PFQ)

Our classroom course is a 2-day offsite session which includes the exam on the afternoon of the second day. The course is highly interactive and demands the full participation of delegates to ensure they receive the maximum benefit.   There are lots of interactive, group exercises that apply to the coursework and are found to be extremely beneficial to learning.

Project Management Qualification (PMQ)

Our PMQ classroom course includes a 4-day offsite session followed by a 2-day exam preparation workshop and exam.  It requires similar participation to the PFQ whereby delegates have to interactive with fellow learners in a classroom environment.

For both of these courses, case studies are used to contextualize the learning using participative exercises that increase the retention of knowledge gained. 

If you find you benefit more from an interactive learning environment where you can ask questions in the present time and learn as part of a group, then our classroom learning option is for you.


Project Management Qualification (PMQ)

We offer a blended learning solution for our PMQ course.  This allows learners to be flexible with their approach to learning and benefit from both classroom and online training.

It includes the 13-online self-study modules whereby after you will join the 2 day classroom exam preparation workshop. 

This blended option allows learners to complete the course at their own pace but reap the benefits of preparing for the exam in a classroom.  By coming into the classroom for the workshop, they have the benefit of being present with a facilitator and actively ask questions and participate in the workshop.
