TRAINING

Our e-learning courses are offered entirely online. That means that you can complete the entire course on your own computer, in your own time, and wherever you are. So there is no classroom training day included.

Registering is very easy. Click on order and select one of our online PRINCE2® training courses, and complete the ordering process. We will contact you to check your order. You will then receive an invoice from us and we will send you your login details for your personal account on our online learning portal. With this login you have access to your courses wherever and whenever you want. The login period depends on the package ordered.

Via the learning portal you can follow the e-learning package you have chosen, supported by an e-coach. At any time you can test your knowledge with one of the available test exams. If you think you are ready to take the exam, contact the e-coach.

Internet connection
The e-learning courses are accessible through internet. Although there are no requirements regarding the connection speed, the connection must be reasonably stable because of the continuous communication of your progress from and towards the learning portal. Contact the e-coach in case of technical problems.

Online training is suitable for almost everyone. Though it requires a certain amount of self-discipline. In case of doubt, you can always contact the e-coach, who can provide useful tips and personal advice.

This depends on your own present knowledge and experience, the training course you choose, and the amount of detailed knowledge you want to obtain. On average, you can take the following into account:

  • PRINCE2® Foundation:
  • PRINCE2® Practitioner:
  • PRINCE2® Foundation & Practitioner:
10 to 15 hours
15 to 20 hours
25 to 30 hours

Our e-coaches have been active in project management for years. They will answer all your substantive questions and assist you through e-mail. In case of technical problems, they will arrange technical support. The e-coaches also monitor your progress and advise you on your study pace, enabling you to complete your course within the remaining access period. On top of that, you can always contact them for practical advice on learning, preparing for the exam or to request a study plan.

For PRINCE2® Foundation it depends on your present knowledge and experience. In case you do not have any project management experience at all, we would advise you to opt for the e-coach. In case you do have some project management experience, you probably do not need online coaching. But don’t worry, it is always possible to opt for online coaching at a later date.

No paper course material is used for online training. You can, however, order the official PRINCE2® manual. This serves as a reference, but does not replace the curriculum from the digital learning environment. The learning environment offers the possibility to print, but this only concerns part of the theory.

You do not need any additional study materials to complete the PRINCE2® Foundation course and take the Foundation exam.

For Practitioner, we recommend purchasing the PRINCE2® manual "Managing Successful Projects with PRINCE2®", as the Practitioner exam is an open book exam, and the manual is the only book that you are allowed to use during the exam.

We offer the manual for 95 euros (excluding shipping costs), when ordered in combination with one of our training courses.

All PRINCE2® training organizations have a training obligation. This means that no training organization is authorized to take exams from candidates who have not followed a training course with them.

EXAMS AND CERTIFICATES

  • The PRINCE2® Foundation exam is a 1-hour exam, consisting of 60 multiple choice questions. Passing the PRINCE2® Foundation exam is a prerequisite for taking the PRINCE2® Practitioner exam.
