Customer Review

The course offers a systematic approach to delivering successful content with clear templates, processes model, steps, and master project plan (project plans, stage plans, and team plans). During my study, I have understood that PRINCE2 is more methodological and practical than PMP which is more like project management standards.

I just completed the uCertify Prince2 Study guide. This was super easy to use the online platform, which broke down the material into manageable and easily digestible chunks of information, with real-world scenarios, exam spotlights for easy reference, as well as tables and diagrams. I especially appreciated the knowledge check sections that helped to emphasize key knowledge areas to prepare you for the exam. You should definitely check this resource if you're thinking about taking the Prince2 Exam!

A few days back, I got a chance to review the uCertify Prince2 Course. This course covers PRINCE2 certification exam objectives and provides skills for project management with real-life scenarios. It provides an understanding of all principles, themes and processes on which the PRINCE2 certification is based. Further found this course full of interactive activities that keep learners engaged. Challenges scenarios based questions are also embedded in the chapters so learners can attempt those while learning. Only thing I like to add to include industry research, business cases should also be part of this course to eqip learners to adopt as per industry demand. So, if you are interested in being a PRINCE2 certified professional I would recomment to try uCertify Course.
