PRINCE2 (PRojects IN Controlled Environments) is a structured project management method and one of the world’s most widely used method for managing projects. It helps you work out who should be involved and what they will be responsible for. It gives you a set of processes to work through and explains what information you should be gathering along the way.

Our fully accredited PRINCE2 Foundation virtual course introduces you to PRINCE2, and helps prepare you for the Foundation examination which assesses whether you can demonstrate sufficient recall and understanding of the PRINCE2 project management method. This course fully conforms to the PRINCE2 2017 syllabus.

System is easy to use and the person montoring the exam was very clear and professional

The trainer and the classroom experience were very good but the administration and pre-course organization need definitively to be improved.

Once I had got used to the ILX interface, I found that everything flowed as I was able to test my knowledge during each lesson, and then afterwards in the selection of games. I was able to progress from knowing very little to having confidence that I was able to pass the exam. Not only were the games enjoyable to do, but also helped me to identify the areas where I needed to concentrate. As I was struggling to find any study time, when I spoke to ILX, they were able to assist, which enabled me to complete the course successfully.

The classroom course was cancelled multiple times. Ended up having to change to online which will be more difficult to complete due to competing demands while in the office.

All the people I liaised with understanding, helpful, positive and encouraging. The software itself was really well done. I couldn't get to a classroom session as they were either too far out in the future, not in English or I would have had to travel to the UK. The online classroom gives the flexibility you need to get through the material. I wish I had of realised earlier about the app, when I finally got the app it was really helpful and convenient - for reading over on the Metro etc for revision, and it also allows you to do the quiz questions per section without having to go through whole session to get to the questions. The games made it fun, and the practice exam was very useful.
