This e-Learning course has achieved higher Practitioner Exam pass rates when compared to classroom training.
Course accredited, licensed and approved

Many eLearning PRINCE2® Courses are not formally accredited or approved by the PeopleCert, which means the courses are invariably not fit-for-purpose in terms of providing the study content necessary to pass the exams.

A common concern with eLearning is that you will be unsupported as a learner. With our courses this is not so. Not only will you be able to see questions asked by previous learners through subject forums, but you will be able to directly message support if you are stuck or don’t understand something.
Furthermore, our courses use multi-media and have been carefully designed to cater for different learning styles, preferences and abilities:
Visual Learners – our courses are visually engaging, with many diagrams and images to illustrate and highlight key points
Auditory Learners – our courses contain clear audio, delivered by subject specialists rather than actors, which we find helps ensure that emphasis is placed on the most important aspects
Kinaesthetic Learners – our courses have many test questions and inter-active exercises embedded within them to aid those who learn best through practicing what they have learnt
Course Accessibility – if you have a hearing impairment, or need to turn the audio off, full transcripts are available within our courses
Some benefits of eLearning include:
Learning can occur at a time and place to suit you – around your work commitments and lifestyle
You can repeat the course units, exercises and tests as many times as you like, until you are confident
It is often cheaper than classroom courses, and there are no travel costs!
Associated exams can also be taken at home, on-line at a time to suit you using ProctorU service
