Course materials were very good for Foundation in particular. I really like the venue. The main driver for my 5-star rating was the tutor. She was very engaging, and I found her extra materials on the flipcharts valuable.

I recently attended and passed the PRINCE2 Foundation and Practitioner course and was really happy with my choice. The trainer (Susan) was passionate, knowledgeable and engaging, the class size was small and allowed you to get to talk to people from different backgrounds and the location and facilities were great.

He is one of the best trainers that I’ve encountered in over 25 years of working; very knowledgeable, engaging and interesting and gave brilliant tips on how to apply PRINCE2. It wasn’t just about passing the exam. Well worth the cost and time required.
