Overall an informative and helpful course. It provides the underlying principles of management, which are applicable to any project, certainly a worthwhile thing to undertake. A particular shout-out for the instructor Karen Swanston, clearly very knowledgeable of the course, very professional and managed to explain everything with clarity. However, instead of focussing on the core principles, the material itself is very formulaic. The course can be pedantic and get caught up in intricacies that in reality make little/no difference. This was especially the case in the structuring of the exam questions, which seemed intentionally misleading; they seemed more geared towards testing the interpretation skills of the questions themselves rather than testing the understanding of project management.
Easy to identify a suitable course and then book. Good communications after purchase.
The Prince2 course was taught in a very strange way - there were almost no practical application examples, far too many group activities that I found more confusing than helpful and I've come away with a head full of terms that don't seem to have any applicability.
Much pre-work to do and whilst the information was available it could have been slightly better scheduled, in terms of clearly stating which order it needed to be done in. This is not a criticism just an observation. For the course itself, very professional & the trainer was very knowledgeable & delivered the course excellently.
Only average, struggled with the trainer at bit. Asked questions on the home work questions and he didn't really know the answer. Know its a new course but made it difficult to learn. Also found he trained to train which I enjoyed but when I did Prince 2 previously they trained to pass the exam and spent time focusing on the example questions which are hard to get your head around. Would have been nice to do more of this. I also found Peoplecert very difficult to deal with and would not want to have to deal with them again. Extremely unhelpful.
Great venue and really enjoyed the Presenter. I learned a lot - good pace with good examples.
I found the course very disappointing! The content was difficult, which isn't a problem I expected that, but the trainer did not explain it well at all. The stories he told were not relevant to the material. A lot of time was wasted on irrelevant stories. When questioned on the material he would give a very brief answer, which often did not answer the question and did not appreciate it when I tried to delve deeper for more information. He got annoyed when questioned on contradicting areas to try and seek some clarification. A lot of the material taught and discussed was not relevant to what was in the exam. Overall I was disappointed and would not be recommending this course.
Awful service, currently awaiting a response to the written complaint I made. Course materials for the Practitioner course were unavailable in time for the course and were emailed to us along with the past papers fifteen minutes after the Practitioner exam had finished. Will be looking to start small claims action should I not receive an adequate reply.
The trainer and course structure were both easy to follow and the pre-course material extremely helpful.
I bought a package that consisted of online foundation training followed by classroom training for practitioner. I found the online training to be good and it did allow me to pass the foundation test but it wasn't as comprehensive as the in-class lesson. For the in-class practitioner lessons, the instructor was great and I felt confident going into the exam.
Poor pre-course organisation, with the pre-work needing to be chased up and not being overly clear on what was required. The course tutor was good. However, I was informed that I would get an indicative pass/fail during the evening of the day I took the exam, but that didn't materialise. Then I chased when I would get the result, and that then arrived a day later then I was informed. Ultimately I passed though, which is good!
Good venue, and good instuctor some more detail even an example of the practioner exams would be excellent pre the course. Also access to the elctronic content pre course would see a much quicker uptake and better exam results from all
Interesting, well-organised and well-presented course.
Presenter was excellent
Great course tutor with great food!
The process of ordering the course was very simple and straight forward. The directions to the location was helpful because it is not in a very obvious location. The course itself was good even though it was mainly reviewing what had already been covered on the Foundation course and then going through Practice questions. It would have been good if the course had some Practice Projects rather than just the scenarios in the questions so that we could apply the documents etc. to our day to day jobs.
Very interactive course, really enjoyable.
Excellent course. Well worth it!!
It was well compressed and the essentials of Prince2 were covered. For anyone who wants to get a good introduction as well as 2 certifications at the end 5 days - this course is definitely worth it
