To ensure your outcomes are achieved both courses require some pre-course preparation.

For the Foundation course, this will be sent out 2 weeks in advance of the course (or at time of booking if booking less than 2 weeks prior to course commencement). Expected pre-course Foundation preparation time: 1-2 hours.

Practitioner

Participants joining a PRINCE2 Practitioner course will be issued with pre-course work at the end of the Foundation course to ensure adequate preparation for the Practitioner examination.

Expected pre-course Practitioner preparation time: minimum 4 hours.

FAQs

What do you mean by virtual training?

When we refer to virtual (classroom) training we are meaning just that: delivering live training (not pre-recorded) with a trainer to wherever you are real-time – otherwise referred to as Virtual Instructor Led Training (VILT). Our trainers are based in actual training rooms complete with training and AV equipment.

What will I experience during a virtual training session?

Your virtual classroom trainer has access to a variety of options to ensure effective communication and learning, both individually and as a group, including:

  • Changing how webcams are viewed
  • Screen sharing to display a document, presentation or other training content
  • Changing the view to make an attendee the presenter
  • Conducting polls and tests
  • Splitting the classroom into small groups for activities
  • Uploading materials

How do I interact with the trainer? Other attendees?

Collaboration and actively participating in a training session are essential. You can:

  • Raise and submit questions/comments to the trainer or other attendees
  • Use shared apps and drawing tools to collaborate with the whole group
  • Participate in ‘breakout’ rooms for activities/small group discussions
  • Share the trainer’s keyboard and mouse control

Note: Drawing tools, shared keyboard/mouse control and multi-monitor screen sharing are available on the installed desktop app only.

How long will a session be before I can have a break?

As virtual training is a very different experience to face-to-face training, each virtual session will be a maximum of 90 minutes (many sessions will be shorter), followed by a break. Your trainer will confirm the timings of breaks at the start of each day.
