PRINCE2 training from home

Across the globe, we are all facing challenging times with everything that surrounds the COVID-19 epidemic. Whether it be isolation from our family and friends, the challenges of working remotely or the possibility of having to find a new role, there is no doubt that the world as we knew it has changed for us all. Although this raises a considerable challenge, it also presents significant opportunities if we are open and willing. It is a re-set, a chance to do things differently, and to do different things. To challenge ourselves, to pave new pathways for our lives and for those around us. One growing trend is to take the time and opportunity to focus more on personal development. It’s something we all know we need to do, something that can help us develop and be better at what we do, something that can help us advance our careers, and something that, when required, can help us secure that next role. If you’re a project manager or working in a project management environment, the leading project management qualification across the globe is PRINCE2®. The PRINCE2 methodology was heavily revised in 2017 and is now in its’ 6th edition. So, with face-to-face classroom training on hold for the foreseeable future, what options are available for completing PRINCE2 training from home and which option should you choose?

Online (e-Learning)

Online (e-Learning) courses give you access to the course and all supporting material via the internet. This allows the learner to learn at their own pace, and fit their study around other commitments such as work and home life. Online courses are often supported by a qualified trainer to give the learner support as they make progress. If the course involves exams, these can often be completed online too which completely eliminates the need to travel. PMIQ PRINCE2 online (elearning) courses offer the following benefits:

  • Complete the course at your own pace
  • No need to travel – complete everything from home
  • All course costs include the course material and the relevant exam(s)
  • Full access to the latest PRINCE2 6th edition material
  • Full support from an accredited PRINCE2 trainer throughout
  • 24/7 access to the 21 course modules (interactive videos with voice-over)
  • All relevant exams, taken online through PeopleCert (within 12 months of course completion)

  • Exam practice papers and thorough review 
  • Interactive exercises and knowledge checks

Live virtual

Live virtual courses are usually hosted live sessions replicating a classroom course but delivered over the internet. The learner is connected directly to the trainer along with any other learners taking the same class. There is direct interaction with the trainer just like there would be in a classroom environment. If the course involves exams, these can often be completed online too which completely eliminates the need to travel. PMIQ PRINCE2 live virtual courses offer the following benefits:

  • Complete the course in a few days
  • No need to travel – complete everything from home
  • All course costs include the course material and the relevant exam(s)
  • Full access to the latest PRINCE2 6th edition material
  • Full live interaction & support from an accredited PRINCE2 trainer throughout
  • All relevant exams, taken online through PeopleCert (within 12 months of course completion)
  • Access to all course materials and supporting documentation via our Learning Management System
  • Exam practice papers and thorough review
  • Interactive exercises and knowledge checks
  • Guidance and advice on revision and exam preparation
