    I worked at FDM Group full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Excellent modular training delivered by knowledgable training staff in a modern office environment. Gaining industry recognised project management qualifications & certification

    Cons

    Not many other than perhaps: No placement or job guarantees (but you need to understand the business model and accept the rules)

    Advice to Management

    Keep supporting and encouraging the valuable source of hugely experienced potential PMs from across the Armed Forces Family.
