Introduction

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.

Prerequisites
  • In order to study the this course it is assumed that the student has prior knowledge of PRINCE2 up to Foundation level.
  • To sit the Official AXELOS PRINCE2 Agile Practitioner exam students must have previously qualified to PRINCE2 Foundation level

We have put together this course bundle in order to allow students to fulfil the above prerequisites and ready themselves for the official AXELOS examinations.

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
PRINCE2® Foundation Exam

Foundation Exam

The foundation exam is a 1 hour closed book multiple choice examination. There are 75 questions with 5 of the questions for trial and feedback purposes so will not carry a mark. To pass the exam you need to score 50% (35 of the 70 available marks).

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 invigillator later.  This means there are fewer opportunities for your exam to be disqualified because of in-advertant mistakes with in the exam process itself.
