    Undoubtedly agile is very popular today, but at first glance it may seem to fly in the face of established project management methods.  PRINCE2 agile enables you to get the ‘best of both’ – apply sensible and pragmatic controls to the money your organization is spending on projects, but at the same time embrace changing requirements to end up with the best possible product and make sure you deliver on time.  The course will help you decide if agile is suitable for your particular projects and give you detailed tailoring guidance for each PRINCE2 theme and process.

    • Experienced Project Manager

Before you can take the PRINCE2 agile examination you must already have a PRINCE2 foundation level qualification.

    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 ProctorU service

    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.

    There are 5 question groups on the paper with 10 sub-questions in each.  This means there are 50 marks/questions on the paper.  You need to get 30 or more right to be awarded a pass (60%).  There is no negative marking.
