The PRINCE2 Practitioner course was hard work but well worth it. The interactive modules allow you to learn at your own pace and then the additional days in the class really bring it all together. You can really see how a project should be managed, and where you're going wrong, once you work through the modules. It fires your enthusiasm to do it right!

I attended the PRINCE2 Practitioner Gold workshop just over six weeks ago and thought it was excellent, far exceeded my expectations and the trainer was brilliant - I learned so much during those two days and wouldn't be able to find fault even if I tried, it was the best training course I have attended.

The course was excellent - the only reason I decided to give it 4 stars (rather than 5) is that I would recommend going for the wider course, with foundation included, that ILK offer to generate a greater understanding of the Prince2 methodology.

It has been 2 weeks and I am still waiting for my exam results. Online states 2 working days and the invigilator also said a few days so I have not experienced everything on my purchase as of yet.
