    Whats New About PRINCE2 2017?

    We didn’t think the globally-established and proven project management method that is PRINCE2® could be improved, but AXELOS have proved us wrong.

    At its heart PRINCE2® 2017 is very similar to the previous version (PRINCE2® 2009), but some small changes can make a big difference.

    • PRINCE2® 2017 has a greater focus on the PRINCE2 principles
    • Greater clarity on the link between the themes and principles
    • Increased emphasis on tailoring to take account different environments such as complex commercial projects and those using Agile techniques.
    • Restructuring of the themes guidance to accommodate specific examples of tailoring
    • The practical application of the guidance, with numerous examples, hints, and tips.

    A common concern with eLearning is that you will be un-supported 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 the trainer if you are stuck or don’t understand something.

    Trainers will respond to your question(s) within 24 hours, but usually much quicker.

    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 practising what they have learnt
    • Course Accessibility – if you have a hearing impairment, or need to turn the audio off a 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 travelling costs!
    • Associated exams can also be taken at home, on-line at a time to suit you using the PeopleCert Proctor service.
