FAQs:

How many hours of study are required to pass the exam?
You need at least 20 hours study to get ready for the Foundation exam.
Can you compare PRINCE2 e-learning vs virtual?
Good question. PRINCE2 e-learning is flexible – you can fit the learning around your schedule. You don’t have to take time off to attend a course and you can work anywhere – at home, on the road, in hotels etc. Like our virtual training the material is fully accredited and will prepare you for the examination. But sometimes, self-study learning can be too flexible, so you need to be disciplined and set yourself a clear schedule. PRINCE2 instructor-led training is the quickest route to PRINCE2 certification – it is all done in 3 days. During a virtual classroom event, you get access to a PRINCE2 accredited trainer. Many students said that the trainer’s insights and enthusiasm increased their understanding of the methodology. The opportunity to ask specific questions and get immediate answers is one of the biggest benefits of instructor-led training. There are also networking opportunities so you can share and learn from other’s experiences.
I am thinking about buying the PRINCE2 manual and self-studying?
Our e-learning package includes everything and is built to save you money and trouble. Our fully accredited e-learning package includes online lessons, the latest practice exam questions, shipping, examination costs and proctor fees. There is nothing else to pay and you have a higher chance of passing your PRINCE2 exam.
What are the technical support hours for e-learning course?
For any questions regarding the material or help on the e-learning course, we can be reached between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. (Eastern Time Zone). For technical issues, the IT team is located in the UK, so tech support is only available between 8 a.m. and Noon (Eastern Time Zone).

I am not sure my computer is up to date for the online exam?
