What our students say
"An intensive course which was run by a very competent teacher (Kobus) who made an incredibly dry topic easier to learn. Lots of real life experience from him which enabled the class of students to gel and work well together. Highly recommend Knowledge Train when it comes to PRINCE 2 training especially the excellent teacher."
"Kobus is a fantastic teacher. He made what is a pretty dull topic fun and interesting. I actually enjoyed the course, which I did not expect. I just wish Kobus had taught me physics at school, as I think he could make the dullest topic in the world enjoyable. But more importantly, I've actually learned a great deal, passed the Foundation exam, and am confident about the Practitioner exam. A fabulous trainer and a great course. I'd highly recommend the course (Kobus as a teacher) to anyone. Thank you Kobus!"
Harriet King, Deputy Ambassador for Senegal
"I thought the delivery of the course was very good. The trainer has the knowledge and delivers in lively way, given that PRINCE2 is otherwise a quite mundane methodology. The examples he provided were useful and I liked the humour added."
Vanja Lisic, British Embassy
"The course was great. Kobus was an excellent teacher, made it fun and interesting. Kobus provided the support necessary in assisting me to pass my Foundation exam. He was very friendly and built excellent relationships. The e-books were an excellent revision tool."
Vishal Thakrar, Ernst & Young
"The course fulfills the purpose of teaching students how to pass the Foundation exam and the Practitioner exam. Kobus is a fantastic teacher! He manages to make quite a dry subject a lot more interesting. An enjoyable week."
Rosanna Moseley, Steelhenge
"The course was very interactive and excellently delivered. Kobus's sense of humour and experience did help. He was able to carry the group along. I will definitely recommend the tutor to others."
