  • Flexibility

    With in-house training, we deliver the course on dates that suit your schedule best. We can also create a custom programme that splits the course delivery over several weeks if that works better than consecutive days.
  • Consistency

    In-house training is a great way of ensuring that everyone on your project teams receives the same level of training.
  • Relevance

    To maximise the benefit of this programme, we will tailor the content of the course to focus on projects and situations relevant to your working environment.
  • Cost-Effective

    When you have a number of candidates for PRINCE2® training, an in-house course can save you up to 60% on public course rates.
