Can I combine online learning and classroom study?
Yes, this is the 'blended' approach and for many candidates it's a really good option. Complete the Foundation online then attend 2 days classroom study to complete the Practitioner element and examination. This is a good option to consider if you are new to Project Management and feel you may benefit from face to face contact with one of our fully qualified and experienced trainers.
Does Matthew Cabot provide classroom-based courses?
Matthew Cabot offers PRINCE2® in a classroom format i.e. 5 days classroom study including both foundation and practitioner examinations. The course will be taught by one of our qualified and experienced lecturers. The course includes lunch, tea, coffee and water and free parking. The only extra cost is travel to and from the venue.
Many other classroom-based courses are also available.
Does PRINCE2 qualify for cpd credits?
Yes - please contact us for details.
How long does it take to complete the online learning course?
The great thing about online learning is that you can complete the course at your own pace. Most students complete the course within one month of signing into the online learning package. This is based on a couple of hours study each day. The online learning package is valid for 365 days.
How will I benefit from becoming a PRINCE2® practitioner?
PRINCE2® is now an industry standard, the need for excellent project management is now recognised in virtually all institutions. Matthew Cabot foresees a time when the majority of companies and institutions will make a qualification in PM a pre-requisite. Good project management has been shown to deliver high quality results on time and in budget. The more qualified PRINCE2® practitioners, the more embedded good practice becomes and the best results delivered.
In the mean time, by gaining PRINCE2® you will be ahead of the game and be in a position to lead the PM way. For those whose employers are already using PRINCE2® PM you will be able to add input and influence at a higher level with the knowledge you have gained. Speak the language everyone will be speaking!
Your projects will be professionally managed, by you, saving time, money and delivering outputs leading to outcomes that deliver measurable benefits.
If I opt for online learning, what support will I get?
The online learning is supported by e-coaches who are all fully qualified PRINCE2® trainers with a wealth of experience in both PRINCE2® and Project management in general. They are available to contact by email, Skype and phone.
Is lunch provided?
Yes, Matthew Cabot provides a sandwich based lunch with fruit or cake. Tea, coffee and water are available throughout the day at no cost (please advise us of any dietry requirements). As the venue is near a cricket club there is the opportunity to have lunch al fresco! (English weather permitting!)
What does Matthew Cabot offer that others don't?
A complete online learning and examination experience.
Matthew Cabot offers the unique choice of being able to complete PRINCE2® without ANY travel or interruption to your working life. The online course can be studied at a time and location to suit you. Better still, Matthew Cabot is offering an online 'Exam at Home' service, so even the examinations can be taken at any time or place - at work or at home!
What preparation will I have to do?
You will be sent an official PRINCE2® manual and guidance on pre-course reading. For classroom based courses it is essential that you read the manual before attending the course. For those choosing blended and online learning we also suggest you read the manual before commencing the learning. The manual will be sent to you at least two weeks before your learning starts.
