We've never been convinced that exam pass equals capability but we 'played the game' of they are the easiest to sell. Reservation about the value is for two reasons. 1) cramming to answer questions that are as daft as the pmi & axelos ones isn't a measure of 'can do the job' and their books chase each other not the knowledge to deliver benefits which is what business need
During 2019 axelos and peoplecert banned accredited training companies from selling 'how-to' training in prince2. From Jan 1st 2020 training sold HAS to include a £200 plus exam - thats a HELL OF A TAX on a course I sold for 10-20 quid. PMI has also added lots of restrictions.
The 'tax' and other restrictions are simply designed to line their pockets at your expense. So now I've dropped the accreditations. They wrote to tell me that at midnight I became thick and ignorant. Strangely I've not lost those 40years of experience applying and developing skills in how to enable benefits
My old materials - minus their licensed elements are here for 'free access' within the whole £5/mth bundle
I understand that if your starting a career then an accreditation can be useful so I hope my old materials are of use. Many tell me they always were a cut above many other offering and now you can judge for about the cost of a coffee and muffin
All our courses for a single monthly fee.

Frequently Asked Questions
Start is as soon as you're enrolled. End may be never, otherwise it is at th eend of the period in which you decide to end your subscription.
Subscriptions run for one month or one year and roll-over automtically until you've had as much access as you need and stop them
Outright purchases last forever
We would never want you to be unhappy so we offer plenty of "try-before-you-buy" free access materials.
An important part of passing exam credential courses, particularly eLearning ones is that you make the personal commitment. We ask you to only buy when you've made your decision. Then know we and you are both fully focused on your success from then on.
We do not offer money back options because when you sign-up with "well I can always change my mind" as your justification there is a weakening to the resolve that is necessary for success - That is not in your best interest if you are to swiftly progress and pass exams.
Other provider's "Money back" guarantees are a way of appearing to reducing 'purchasing risk' by seemingg to to transfer the impact from you to them BUT...
They are common because they use the psychology of regret that recognises you can't get your time back AND asking for a refund implies telling your self "I made a bad choice".
Both reinforce a "I would not have chosen if i knew then what i know now BUT I'll keep going because now it will be a hassle to start again." The likely outcome is your involvement drags on you, progress is slow and may halt entirely.
So please enjoy the free-access materials and confirm we are a good fit and then make your commitment.
Ultimately if you've a genuine reason that is not simply trying to game-the-system then talk to us - we are people too, and we try to be reasonable.
P.S. maybe you'd like to do our risk management masterclass companion to our Fast-Track risk course. (Both are included in our £5 bundle subscription.) I'm confident no-one else's project risk management has the content ours does. Others pretend risk is impact times probability of a single event single outcome chain. Niave in the extreme but common in text books.
