Meet our PRINCE2® trainer: Kobus Scheepers
Kobus Scheepers is a member of the experienced team of Approved PRINCE2 Trainers at Knowledge Train. He regularly delivers public PRINCE2 courses for Foundation, Practitioner, and Practitioner Re-registration candidates. In addition, he is a trusted choice for PRINCE2 in-house courses at both UK-based and international organisations.
Kobus’s delivery style, subject knowledge, and class interaction are frequently rated ‘excellent’ by delegates, who enjoy his engaging, lively training sessions. In particular, many appreciate his sense of humour and endless patience – essential qualities for exploring the detailed PRINCE2 project management method.
Extensive project management experience
Among the advantages of PRINCE2 is its ‘focus on product-based planning’, Kobus suggests. In fact, he views ‘managing the development and delivery of products’ as the most satisfying aspect of project management. From the particularly memorable task of ‘managing the annual fundraising street carnival at university’ to rolling out a £4m data warehouse solution, Kobus’s work in project management is wide-ranging. The extent of his experience is particularly helpful when he advises delegates about how they can implement PRINCE2 in the real world.
Courses picked for you
Enthusiasm for his students’ continuing professional development makes Kobus stand out: ‘I like teaching’, he explains, when asked what encouraged him to become a PRINCE2 trainer. ‘Meeting new delegates every week’ is one of the most enjoyable aspects of his work, he emphasises. Since PRINCE2 can be applied to any project in any industry, its appeal to a diverse range of businesspeople is clear; yet the individuals participating in Kobus’s classes never fail to develop a sense of camaraderie during the course.
Delegates’ PRINCE2 success
Having conducted hundreds of training sessions, Kobus considers Prague to be the most interesting place in which he has delivered a PRINCE2 course. On his most recent trip to the Czech Republic’s capital, the delegates achieved an impressive 100% success rate in their PRINCE2 exams. That the course was provided in the group’s second language – English – is testament to their trainer’s adaptable approach, as well as his ability to work effectively in multi-cultural environments.
In addition to PRINCE2 training, Kobus teaches the Fundamentals of Project Management course, with a focus on key skills and techniques. He has also found time to develop his own project management method, specifically designed for use in the Higher Education sector.
If you are a PRINCE2 Practitioner aiming to become a trainer, Kobus offers this advice: ‘be sure you enjoy teaching, and know the PRINCE2 manual well’.
It’s a simple but effective strategy that has certainly worked well for both Kobus and his students at Knowledge Train.
