I studied the weeklong PRINCE2 Foundation & Practitioner course with Knowledge Train. I did my research, and the positive reviews certainly reflected the experience that I had with them. I am thinking of doing an Agile course in the future and if I do, I will go back to them.
The PRINCE2 Foundation and Practitioner weekday course…was very well organized. The whole process was smooth, the staff is very helpful and an experienced trainer with a practical approach delivered the contents of the course. The preparation for the exam was really good. I passed both exams with ease. I definitely will go back with them for my next certification.
