It is with the professional help of Advantage Learning and their full quality service, end-to-end, that I managed to re-register as a practitioner with my favourite project management methodology: PRINCE2. Special thanks go to Johan Stewart for incredible efficiency and support, and Steven Gardiner for being able to condense already high-density information set to the level that can be easily consumed and retained.Sandra Popovic-Ovcina, PMP, Project Manager / BSA

Awesome PRINCE2 instructor! Would have not have done so well on Foundation without him.Linda Broder-McPhail, Project Manager
Manitoba eHealth, Winnipeg, Manitoba
The material was presented at exactly the right pace. Our instructor was passionate about the material and clearly has been applying the method in the real world for some time. He was extremely patient and always took the proper time required to answer our questions in a meaningful way. I really felt that his approach made me understand how the method is meant to be applied, rather than simply learning the material to pass an exam.Alexander Wood, PMP, Senior Project Manager

My goals in taking the course Managing Successful Programmes were to gain both a thorough understanding of the material and approach, also to obtain practitioner certification. The tutor and training materials were excellent.

Most professional, polished trainer I have experienced in my 31 years in this industry.Chris Schrader, Project Manager,
Manitoba eHealth, St Andrews, Manitoba
Having taken several project management courses through various providers, I would recommend Advantage Learning's Prince 2 course not only for the knowledgeable and experienced instructors but also for its smaller class size.WM, Project Manager
Excellent particularly appreciated the fact that he didn't read the slides directly. Did a great job of putting things in his own words and sharing experience.
Thomas Coats, Paradigm Consulting, Regina SK
Colin as always available to answer questions. Knowledge of the material was exceptional (could provide references/page numbers on request!)
Idris Noorzad, Project Manager, Health Quality Ontario, ON
Course content was extremely pertinent to my work environment and job function.
Charles Desjardins, IT Portfolio Manager, House of Commons, Ottawa, ON
I think this course will be of great benefit to me in the future. The material is easy to understand and scalable.
The instructor provided real world examples to clarify any questions that came up. The course is well worth the effort required to do well in it.
Rick Pannell, Business Analyst, Pharmaceutical Information Program, eHealth Saskatchewan, Saskatchewan
I thought Management of Portfolios was a great course. There was somewhat less content to memorize than the other OGC courses, leaving time for exploration and discussion among the participants on how the concepts provided could be applied at their organization.
The guidance allows for a lot of flexibility and scalability in how MoP can be applied. This is one course that higher level management could attend and benefit from. The course was well presented, led by an instructor with a lot of real world implementation experience.
Carolyn Smith, Consultant, PCGI Consulting Services, Winnipeg
Management of Portfolio course from Advantage Learning Ltd was an excellent and comprehensive course on portfolio management principles, concepts and practices. Advantage Learning provided a great instructor who did a great job of facilitating conversations that brought out some very insightful thoughts.
The course provided me with a solid foundation on portfolio management which I will be applying the principles and concepts in our organization.
Warren Quan, Manager, Portfolio & Investment Management, City of Toronto, Toronto
This course, as developed by one of the leading and most progressive governments in the world, and delivered by Advantage Learning, provides a framework that makes sense in the government context. This is especially critical to me as the I&IT PMO Manager who is responsible for the EPPM tool and project management methodology for the Central Agencies I&IT Cluster.
The Advantage Learning trainers know their stuff and deliver a great course for certification.
Tim Chandler, Manager, Project & Resource Management Central Agencies Cluster, Ministry of Government Services, Ontario
This course is one of the few where the material in the course is exactly what is required in real life when managing a Portfolio of Projects and Programs. I highly recommend this course.
Don Anderson, Executive Project Director, Paradigm Consulting Group (Justice), Saskatchewan
Brilliant! This course fills a significant void in the P3M space by providing a clear Portfolio Management Method that is sound and tailorable for all organizations. This is particularly relevant in today's resource constrained economy where tough decisions need to be made. This is the capstone for OGC as it brilliantly ties in the other methodologies in a service and benefits offering that is relevant for professionals.
The Advantage Learning course that I took was brilliant and HIGHLY recommended !
Peter Milsom, IPMA International Project Management Excellence Award assessor at IPMA, International Project Management Association, Ottawa
The Advantage Learning courses and practice exams were very helpful for me to prepare for my Prince2 certification. I was able to take the training on my own time. The materials were well explained in both the videos and in the supporting resources. The preparation exams were very useful and helped me to pass with flying colors!
Alan Manara, Project Management Consultant, Government of Canada, Ottawa
I highly recommend the online training modules developed by Advantage Learning. I found the approach of actors delivering the content in the online modules was a subtle but powerful difference in helping to have the feel of a classroom setting.
The structure and flow of the content was excellent as well as the immediate feedback was truly helpful. It was also a pleasure dealing with the company and their representatives they were always quick to respond and help out in any way possible.
Irina Sladecek, Consulting Manager, Sierra Systems, British Columbia
I highly recommend Advantage Learning for the PRINCE 2 course. The online material, the sample exams, the videos and printable material. The whole process in terms of registration and turnaround time was very smooth for me.
I would like to thank the Advantage Learning Team for being very supportive and responsive.
Irene Barsoum, Project Manager/Business Analyst, MarKiroTech Inc., Canada
The training materials provided by Advantage Learning were very useful and provided a good complement to the manual. I especially found the sample exams very helpful as they provided insight into the types of questions that may be asked and, for the Practitioner exam, the actual structure of the questions.
I highly recommend using these materials as you prepare for your certification. Thanks to Johan from Advantage Learning for all the support you provided me!
