Delegates are not required to carry out any significant pre-course preparation as our blend of learning methods provides comprehensive preparation for the examinations which are taken during the course. However, the course is intensive and delegates are advised to undertake some revision work in the evenings.
Benchmark PRINCE2 courses are far more than just exam crammers and their trainers go out of their way to make sure that delegates are able to use PRINCE2 in the real world.
At the same time, they offer an unlimited, money back guarantee of success in the Foundation exam.
