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.

Had issues accessing account due to the fact my original purchase was not recognised by their system. Training pack good; however, the marketing information under-estimates the amount of time investment by some amount . I've completed BEng and MSC studies and know how hard it is to combine work and study life … the length of time required to successfully complete this course is not to be under-estimated but may be under-played by ILX

I think the classroom was amazing. I was concern about having 3 days intense learning of lots of concepts. And actually with the teacher experience was truly amazing.
