PRINCE2 Foundation and Practitioner Online Elearning with Exams & Manual

Interactive self paced eLearning course

0 STUDENTS ENROLLED

    This course is designed to help those who wish to study PRINCE2® to Foundation and Practitioner Level and take the respective AXELOS examinations with the aim of becoming a PRINCE2® Practitioner.

    Anyone who has to work within a project environment and needs to understand the structure and terminology of PRINCE2® will benefit from Foundation & Practitioner training.

    PRINCE2® was originally developed in 1989 to address the issues that were commonly causing UK government IT projects to fail. Since then the method has undergone a couple of re-writes to take account of feedback from its practical use and to bring it in line with other AXELOS methods. The current version was released in 2009 and is used internationally.

    The Foundation level qualification tests how much of the method learners have absorbed and the Practitioner level qualification tests application of the method within a scenario situation.

    Balance Global’s PRINCE2® eLearning Practitioner course is accredited by the PeopleCert (exam institute), ensuring that delegates receive a consistently high standard of training. The course is presented by our lead PRINCE2® trainer (rather than an actor) to ensuring the best possible experience for our learners. Although this is an eLearning course – we still cater for different learning styles:

    • Visual Learners – through good visual presentation, mind maps and colour coding of key points
    • Auditory Learners – through clear voice-overs, delivered by our lead PRINCE2® trainer, ensuring emphasis in the right places. Deaf learners will be able to see a full transcript of the audio files.
    • Kinaesthetic Learners – through embedded exercises and interactive trainer support

    The course materials are regularly reviewed and kept in-line with the syllabus as set by AXELOS (the method’s owner). The course draws on the current official manual “Managing Successful Projects using PRINCE2®” 2009 edition.

    Course Reviews

    1. The practitioner exam hints & tips were really helpful. Liked the process model too.

    2. Liked that I could keep re-taking the mocks until I felt ready to book my exams.

    3. Profile photo of Lang Lang says:

      I know I am a visual learner so I found the colour coded diagrams helped me A LOT! If you are looking to take PRINCE2 through eLearning you could do a lot worse than buying this course.

    4. Profile photo of Janita Alire Janita Alire says:

      So pleased I bought the complete package – its much cheaper than buying the eLearning & exams separately. The practitioner bit followed on nicely from the foundation course.

      Marvelous course – ticked all the boxes.
