Why Should You Learn PRINCE2® Foundation?

There are two levels of PRINCE2® qualification. The Foundation Level is the first qualification required to become a PRINCE2® Practitioner.

Everything was well organized. I would like to refer to some of their courses to my peers as well. The customer support was very interactive. As a small suggestion to the trainer, it will be better if we have discussions in the end like Q&A sessions.

The teaching methods followed by Knowledgehut is really unique. The best thing is that I missed a few of the topics, and even then the trainer took the pain of taking me through those topics next day. I really look forward to join KnowledgeHut soon for another training session.
