    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.

    Foundation Exam

    The foundation exam is a 1 hour closed book multiple choice examination. There are 60 questions. To pass the exam you need to score 55% (33 of the 60 available marks).

    Preparing for an Exam

    Do not sit the exam before you’re ready and feel confident. We recommend that you should only consider booking an official exam when you have achieved the following:-

    • Worked through all the course sections and units at least once
    • Completed the exam simulator tests and achieved a repeatable score of 50% / above.

    Don’t feel nervous about the exam process. Our comprehensive eLearning course covers the exam syllabus in full and we will also provide you with exam hints and tips.  Furthermore, we (unlike many competitors) pay extra for the premium remote proctoring service.  With this ProctorU service you will be personally guided through the on-line exam process rather than having your exam being recorded and watched by an invigilator later.  This means there are fewer opportunities for your exam to be disqualified because of in-advertant mistakes with in the exam process itself.

    The PRINCE2 agile Exam is 2.5 hours.  It is an objective test (multiple choice) examination and it is ‘open book’, which means that you can reference the official text (PRINCE2 agile) during the exam, but no other reference material is permitted.  This exam texts if you can tailor and apply your learnings using a simple scenario.
