PRINCE 2 - Ian Harrington

Excellent course. In terms of project management and Prince 2, Ian has been there and done it so you can really trust what he is saying. Although the Prince 2 course was intense, Ian's engaging style and structured approach meant helped break it down into manageable parts. With the mixture of theory and practise exam question I felt confident that I could pass both the foundation and practitioner exam.
