Instructor-led live training
As of September 2023
- Flexible learning at home
- Exam times of your choosing
Live Virtual Learning allows you to complete an online course from the comfort of your own home. It is delivered by a live qualified trainer over video conferencing software. It will also cover the same content covered in any of our classroom courses. The course runs from 9:30 am to 4:30 pm (London UK time)
Live Virtual Learning is a training course delivered by a live qualified trainer over video conferencing software. You can ask your trainer questions during the training and get a response right away. It also allows the attendees and trainer to have live discussions. An E-Learning course is a pre- recorded video delivered by a qualified trainer that will cover the content of a training course. You will watch this in your own time and you are unable to ask any questions or have any discussions.
Our classroom courses take place in venues throughout the UK and Ireland. You and the trainer will physically be in the same room. Live Virtual Learning takes place over a web based application from your home and it is the next best option to a classroom course. Both types of courses will offer the same content and support as the trainer will be able to answer any questions you may have using a microphone if you choose to do a virtual training course. Documents can be shared over web applications as well as email. A huge benefit of Live Virtual Learning is that there is no travelling involved, you can take a course online in the comfort of your own home.
Our class size will be around 10-15 delegates. This means you will receive a high level of support from the trainer at all times.
We will be using WebEx as the platform for our Live Virtual Learning training. It offers you the option to communicate with your trainer using the microphone on your pc/laptop, use the chat option to type a question or select the ‘raise a hand’ option if they have a question to ask. So your trainer will be alerted anytime you have a question to ask.
Our PRINCE2 training course runs from 9:30 am to 4:30 pm each day (London UK time). The course is delivered live over WebEx by a qualified PRINCE2 trainer.
If you opt to take a PRINCE2 Live Virtual training course with us, you will also take your exams virtually. We will issue you an exam voucher for the relevant exams you have booked. You can then use the voucher code provided to book an online exam with the examining body for a time and date that suits you. This will be an exam taken on a computer via an online proctor with the examining body. You are required to have a webcam for all exams.
Absolutely. Our highly qualified PRINCE2 trainers will be offering the same high level support we offer on our classroom based PRINCE2 training courses. You will a few ways of communicating with your trainer while you are taking your course. You will also be provided with the same training materials that we provide on our classroom based PRINCE2 training courses.
You will receive hard copies of the slides and practice exams, as well as an e-book version of the official manual. We post the training material out to your home or work address before your Live Virtual Learning course starts. The trainer will also share their screen with you via the Webex platform during the course so you will view the same training slides that we use on our classroom based PRINCE2 training course.
yes, absolutely. We are an ATO (Accredited Training Organisation) by Peoplecert examination institute, the sole exam provider for PRINCE2 on behalf of Axelos (Axelos owns PRINCE2). Our trainers go through a rigorous onboarding process and our courseware is signed off by Peoplecert examiners.
Our PRINCE2 Trainers have typically been teaching the PRINCE2 certification or worked in Project Management for over 10 years, having taught thousands of delegates in that time. Our trainers are all accredited by Peoplecert too, who make them undertake a rigorous on-boarding process. Our trainers have a lot of hands on Project Management experience in a host of industries, from the Financial sector to Engineering and Government.
We are so confident that you will pass your PRINCE2 Foundation exam first time with us after attending one of our courses, that we offer you a free resit if you don't pass the exam first time. It is limited to one free resit and is valid as long as you have attended a Foundation PRINCE2 training course of ours in full.
Our PRINCE2 courses include everything you need to pass the PRINCE2 exams, including: the official Managing Successful Projects with PRINCE2 publication (2017 Edition e-book), our course slide manual and PRINCE2 exams. We also offer a foundation exam guarantee, one free resit if you fail the Foundation exam.
Our Live Virtual PRINCE2 training course has been carefully tailored and condensed into 4 days, we cover the full PRINCE2 syllabus, in reality, the 5th day with other providers is only the practitioner exam so there's no extra teaching, it finishes at 12 pm on the Friday of their course. We feel its just a more efficient use of your time to do it this way.

You will need to do at least 2/3 hours homework every evening, based on your tutors advice. This will be a combination of reading and sample exams. Your tutor will help you as much as possible, but ultimately you need to do the practice exams and questions on your own to really get to grips with the syllabus and exam style.
Your exams will take place after your Live PRINCE2 training course takes place. Once you book and pay for your Live Virtual Learning course in full, we will issue exam vouchers to you. You will then use the voucher codes to book your online exams with the examining body. We advise you book your exam slots as soon as you receive your vouchers code to ensure you get an exam slot soon after you have taken yourPRINCE2 training course.
A confirmation of your booking will be sent to your email as soon as you have booked and paid (along with a full Tax Invoice). The venue details are normally the ones listed on the website, but this will be confirmed via email at least 7 days before the course start date as it can change due to availability. Please note your booking is not fully confirmed until you have paid in full.
You can change your course dates up to 10 business days before the course start date subject to a re-booking fee of £150 + VAT. Changes cannot be made to the booking within 10 business days of the course start date. We always try to work with customers to achieve an outcome that works for everyone, we are very customer centric. Please see our full terms and conditions for more details.
We have everything covered, we don't have any hidden fees or nasty surprises. The Price listed (+VAT) is the price you pay.The only thing we don't cover is overnight accommodation and travel costs to the training venue.
The dress code is casual, so don't worry about business attire.
If you have any special needs or requirements please let us know when you book your course and let your course tutor know at the start of the course so he/she can accommodate your needs. Any additional exam time can only be accommodated with the accompaniment of a Doctors note or other proof. An example of this would be Dyslexia or if you are a non-native English speaker (passport required).
Payments & Refunds
Yes, we charge VAT at the standard rate of 20%. Our prices are listed without VAT as most of our customers reclaim the VAT, and want the price excluding VAT. If you click "Book Now", you can see the price including VAT in the cart.
We offer full refunds as long as you submit your email request to us 20 business days before the course start date (minus a small cancellation fee, see full T&Cs). A cancellation means you no longer want to do your course with us and want a refund, it is not the same as wanting to change your course date. Cancellations between 20 and 10 business days are subject to a 50% cancellation fee (value of purchase). Cancellations less than 10 business days are subject to a 100% cancellation fee. We always try to work with customers to achieve an outcome that works for everyone, we are very customer centric.
