ILX Training Testimonials
At ILX, we are proud of the glowing feedback we receive constantly from our clients and from people attending our courses. Here are a few snippets of feedback we have received recently from clients and learners around the world:
ITIL Foundation Blended Learning
One of the things we really value about ILX Group is its flexible and partnership-style approach to training. We're able to use its products, services and highly experienced trainers together with our own in-house capabilities to deliver the most effective and best-fit training solution to our staff. And it is an approach that is starting to pay dividends because we now find that staff who've been through the ILX Group solution are much better equipped to manage projects in a more cost effective and timely way. It also means that we have a more consistent approach to project management despite the multi-national and multi-culture mix of staff in NATO.
ITIL Foundation e-Learning
Anglo American plc is one of the world's largest mining companies; with IM staff distributed across the globe. For this reason, the ITIL v3 Foundation e-learning solution from ILX Group plc has provided us with an excellent mechanism to educate our staff, often located at mining sites far from major centres. The high standard of the multi-media rich course is exemplary in course design, interaction, assessment and learner support. The design of the course material makes it easy for students to navigate through the course material and optimise their learning at their own pace and convenience.
Brian Bear, Anglo American, South Africa
The ILX Group plc courses are a very effective way of developing an understanding of Project Management and form an important part of our Project training framework.

By offering employees such accredited courses we can cost effectively deliver a comprehensive training programme and hopefully go some way to achieving our ambition of becoming a first class community hospital that provides high quality care in every way.

PRINCE2 Foundation e-Learning
We have used the PRINCE2 Foundation course from ILX Group plc with excellent results for 18 months, so the obvious solution was to add Project Management (Fundamentals), Programme Management and Managing Risks in Projects to our training programme. All four courses are regularly updated and made available over the local computer network to the project managers and development team.
Salford City Council
I'd like to thank you for the very positive, flexible support I received from you throughout the delivery of the multimedia training which resulted in a 100% pass rate and saw some 80+ project managers attain the PRINCE2 Foundation accreditation.
Project Director, BT
ILX is our preferred choice for distance learning solutions. Their extensive portfolio of self study material provides a viable alternative to classroom based training. This is especially relevant to our working in a time sensitive web industry. Their course updates based on our feedback with regards to usability, focus and content relevance allows us to be partners rather than strictly customers.

PRINCE2 Foundation and Practitioner e-Learning
The multimedia courses were an excellent investment for us. We took the PRINCE2 exam brimming in confidence and all passed.
Programme Manager, Police IT Organisation (PITO)
Many thanks for an excellent and very enjoyable course. I found the handling of the discussions spot on and the fact that we were able to complete the syllabus proved this. I will certainly recommend to anybody who wishes to take PRINCE2 courses in the future.
Head of IT Projects Stanley Leisure plc
Thanks for an excellent course here at the Authority, all passed :-)
Deputy Director, EFTA Surveillance Authority Belgium
One of the main considerations for our training and development programme is the location of our offices. Because the course from ILX Group plc is based on CD-ROM it can be distributed easily and ensures that project management training is of a high standard and consistent throughout Barclays Africa. Another major advantage is that the course is always available to our project managers, who can study at their own pace, at their convenience.
Within Navigha, we have been delighted with our cooperation with the ILX Group, who provided us with PRINCE2 training. As it is an e-learning course it gives the opportunity to follow the training at our own pace. The flexibility is priceless for us! Also, the e-learning is very well structured ... as a result, 100% of our candidates passed the exam so far! There is no more to say ... A flexible, well structured e-learning is the key to a successful project!
Benoit Devolder, Navigha SA, Belgium
The learners in The IQ Business Group have repeatedly commented about the quality of the e-learning modules and I myself have experienced amazing after sales service, which has ultimately put ILX in a league of their own. The fact that we are thousands of miles apart has played no role in the ability of our companies to work together and deliver training and obtain certifications in PRINCE2 for many of our consultants. We have enjoyed the partnership and exceptional service we have received from both the sales people, and the examination co-ordinators that we have been interacting with.
David Coughlan, The IQ Business Group (Pty) Ltd, South Africa
Alpha FMC have introduced PRINCE2 as a core qualification across our consulting workforce. ILX Group have continually provided an excellent level and quality of training to our employees and helped us to achieve a 100% pass record to date. The e-learning tool is comprehensive and easy to navigate and the huge bank of practice questions has proven invaluable to all those studying towards the qualification.
Mike Smith, Alpha Financial Markets Consulting
We have been delighted with the training solutions offered by ILX Group plc. The two courses, PRINCE2 Foundation and Programme Management have proved invaluable in helping our staff to plan and manage projects more effectively. The courses are more cost effective than classroom learning, and because they are IT based, staff can take the courses at their own pace to fit in with their work commitments.
ILX Group plc have worked closely with the Mitchells & Butlers IT Department in developing effective Project Management skills over the past 2 years. ILX Group plc have provided us with value for money project management training solutions. The CD-ROM based PRINCE2 course has proved a very successful and flexible method of training. The Customer Service that ILX Group plc provide is extremely friendly, helpful and professional at all times.

PRINCE2 Foundation and Practitioner Classroom Course
With the increasing importance of PRINCE2 across a wide range of different BT projects, we needed to ensure that staff worldwide understood and could apply the key tenets of PRINCE2. ILX Group has been a critical factor in enabling us to achieve this, because it has given us the knowledge and the tools to develop our own, in-house programme which delivers a consistently high level of training irrespective of location. And ILX Group continues to support the programme by providing trainers when demand peaks. The success of the work ILX Group has and continues to do for us is borne out by the fact that we are achieving 100 percent pass rates for Foundation level and over 90 percent for Practitioner level, significantly higher than the national average around 70 percent.

PRINCE2 Practitioner Classroom Course
NMB is Tanzania’s largest bank with over 2,600 employees and growing. With the increase in competition and constant new developments in technology, NMB is challenged to continue to improve its quality of services rendered to its large clientele."
"This year, NMB has undertaken a huge project of upgrading its current banking system. With a change of this magnitude, and even bigger challenges to prepare for, we’ve had to equip our staff with the right skills and knowledge, and that’s where ILX Group came into play with ITIL and PRINCE2 training. The training provided our employees with international exposure, and quality training by professional and experienced trainers. Despite the distance, materials were always shipped on time and logistics properly coordinated. Our staff is now better equipped to efficiently and effectively manage projects, transfer and incorporate knowledge learnt on training sessions into their daily work activities."
Brenda Fernandes, NMB PLC, Tanzania
The course was exceptionally challenging but rewarding. I completed PRINCE2 as it was the most accepted qualification for Project Management however I’m so glad I choose to do the APMP for PRINCE2 Practitioners course. As with PRINCE2 course which I also did with ILX, the organisation, materials, tutoring and structure was faultless.
PRINCE2 provides a methodology but the APMP course gives you the tools to implement and tailor it to fit your industry and the project in hand. I personally feel that the two courses together give a student a broad and comprehensive knowledge of Project Management as a whole. The blended course allows PRINCE2 professionals to gain the APMP by complementing their prior knowledge without duplication.
Amy Baldock, UK
ITIL Foundation e-Learning
Personally, the ILX course kit was very handy as I didn't have to depend on the internet which may sometimes be a problem when the connection is slow or limited. It was informative and yet not overloaded with so many details. Since it's interactive and I get to do some activities every now and then, it was very helpful in reinforcing key concepts that I need to keep in mind. The recorded audio changes from male to female which kept my attention span longer for each session I sit. Finally, the test simulation was helpful in giving me a feel of what the real test was like and the questions being dynamic helped me gain a fuller understanding and appreciation of the concepts rather than just finding myself memorising theories.
Maidy Tan, Australia
...I think your PRINCE2 and MSP courses are excellent and I'm about to start the ITIL course. I'd be hard pressed to fault your courses...
BeeIan Conradie, UK Individual
PRINCE2 Foundation e-Learning
The PRINCE2 Foundation (CBT) computer based training package I purchased from ILX Group plc was an excellent training aid and very user friendly. The "virtual" course tutors were comprehensive in their coverage of, at times, some very complex issues.
Without the training package I would not have achieved anything like the 88% pass mark I got in my exam. Whilst using the CBT, I made very little reference to the main PRINCE2 manual which only confirms that the CBT covered everything you needed to know about the PRINCE2 methodology. Yet, the user is consistently provided with many references to the main manual text.
I also found the examination simulator invaluable in helping me to revise for the exam. All in all, this was an excellent training aid and provided excellent value for money...
Steve Rolfe, Department for Communities and Local Government
...Having worked for over 25 years in IT and using and being involved with many CBT courses, I have to say the PRINCE2 Foundation Training CBT is the best I have come across. Superb, excellent, comprehensive and clear as well as excellent value for money.
I am 52 years of age and learning does not come that easy but with the ILX Group plc approach to studying I managed to get a brilliant pass rate."
The staff at ILX Group plc were excellent particularly Vicky Kinch who helped with advice, ordering and arranging the exam.
I am now looking forward to following this up with the ITIL CBT and I will certainly be recommending ILX Group plc to my company (when I get a job that is) for staff training...
Marios Michael, IT Manager
ILX Group plc training has been of value to me and has helped me to secure a recent Project Management contract with a major national brand. PRINCE2 Foundation, of course, purely provides an overview of the method. However, I now believe that I have the background knowledge to start working within a PRINCE2 environment. I am also eager to become a certified practitioner and look forward to receiving details of your future training in this area.
With spare time being a big issue I found the interactive method of learning very effective. The progression of learning is very logical and the use of manageable sized modules meant that I could progress at my own pace. In short its the best way to learn and I would recommend it to anyone.
Paul Westgate, Consultant
As a private student I chose to do the PRINCE2 course to broaden and standardise my project management knowledge. I chose the ILX Group plc CBT course for value, being able to do the course at my own pace and not having to travel to courses. From the moment I decided to do it this way, I not only knew I had made the right choice but chose the right company.
The professionalism and knowledge of the people I dealt with including Claire, Martyn, Denise, etc made me feel at ease and ensured that I knew what the following steps were and what was required of me. Claire could even give me her own experience of the course. I received the course material promptly and was able to start quickly.
I found the course to be far above my expectation. The course was logically set out, easy to listen to and the best part was that I could take time out when I needed to and could pick up where I left off. If there was anything I was unsure of, I could find the reference easily. The exam helped me to check my progress and still helps me after I have written the exam to sharpen my skills.
I now have a constant reference with excellent templates whenever I need it. I would like to do the practitioner course but would not consider doing it any other way other than through the ILX Group plc CBT method.
Nic Labuschagne, Contractor
I found the course helped to ease me into the use of a CD as a training medium, it was the first time I had used that medium and I had some reservations. However the course flowed in a logical way and I soon got into the technique. The built in tests also helped raise my confidence.
I would recommend the ILX Group plc CD to anyone wanting to learn about PRINCE2.
Thank you again to the ILX Group plc Team.
Gwilym Owen, Contractor
I found the ILX Group Foundation course in PRINCE2 an excellent way of learning the method. It is pitched at exactly the right level, well-paced and very clear. The voice-overs are easy to listen to and some of the graphics serve as useful memory aids. The use of quiz type questions strategically placed throughout the course is also very good but the best part of the course overall is the example Foundation exam lesson. This gives you the opportunity to test what you have learnt time and again and really gives you the ability to pass the exam well. I scored about 95% in my exam so it definitely worked for me!
Mark Elliott, Consultant
Last year after researching the various providers of project management training, I purchased a copy of ILX Group Limited computer-based PRINCE2 Foundation training course. I was pleasantly surprised when the software arrived within days of placing the order as I live in Germany and am used to extended delays in overseas deliveries. Within a matter of several hours of study I had worked through the training and was getting consistent scores in the 90 to 95% ranged using the sample examinations provided on the CD. Organising the examination was equally as well managed as the order processing and I was successful at the first attempt.
With the confidence gained with the ILX Group computer based training I felt fully ready to continue learning and studied for the PRINCE2 Practitioners Examination. A couple of months later I was also successful in this examination.
Many thanks to ILX Group for their friendly and professional support and excellent training material.
John Priestly, Consultant
...I fully recommend the ILX Group plc - PRINCE2 training to anyone wishing to gain a good understanding of the methodology.
The service provided by the ILX Group plc staff if fast and efficient. I received all of the course material the day after purchasing it. The CD ran on my PC without any problems and the material was easy to follow.
Finding the time to do training is never easy. The ability to start and stop the course, picking up where you left it, means that you can fit the training into the smallest of available time slots. So despite the usual hectic schedule, in just two weeks I had completed the course and passed the Foundation level exam with an above average score...
James Barton, Individual
I rarely give feedback on training in this way, but I felt your PRINCE2 course was very well constructed and I wanted to give something back.
I have just taken my Foundation exam and achieved a pass mark of 93% - and I was confident enough to complete all the answers within a mere 20 minutes. Having studied NLP (Neuro-Linguistic Programming) I am aware that people differ in their learning styles. The multimedia presentation really works. The modular approach to the learning was very helpful as I could dip into the material where and when it suited me. Finally, the examination component of the training was particularly useful. by running through several exams, I was exposed to a large number of questions - and this process highlighted areas on which I was weak. Thanks ILX Group plc...
Darren Annells- Consultant
...I purchased the PRINCE2 Foundation course package from yourselves and it was excellent in every aspect. I passed my Foundation exam with an 88% mark which, of course, was very gratifying and I put that down wholly to the style of the course you provided coupled with my own hard work.
I would be delighted for you to use my comments as a testimonial - praise where it is due...
Martyn Briggs, UK Individual
PRINCE2 Foundation and Practitioner Blended Learning
...What an excellent course!
Having taken the PRINCE training course in 1989, I felt it was really time to get PRINCE2, so after a lot of looking around I went for the PRINCE2 Gold package.
The package arrived promptly and I got stuck into the PRINCE2 CBT CD-ROM. I really liked the CD-ROM. I appreciated your efforts to be inclusive with your male and female characters and your multi-racial characters. The questions and the practice exams were excellent.
Where it really got good was your trainer Brad. Brad knew the PRINCE2 manual inside out and by page-number (sad really). He was funny, human, knowledgeable and practical.
As a result of this package I passed the Foundation exam with flying colours and I am waiting for the results of the Practitioner.
Finally, I went straight out and bought your MSP gold course...
Steve Cookson, SCA-UK
"...The PRINCE2 Practitioner Gold course was excellent. I was very pleased with the revision material and the course was well conducted with good content, methods and advice. The standard of material was great and I was very pleased with the exam thanks to the technique I had been taught, so hopefully I have passed.
Many thanks for your assistance during booking the course and after the course. It has been consistently good throughout.."
Paul Hodgson, Head Of Project Management, Apcoa Parking (UK) Ltd
...Having recently received word that I had passed the PRINCE2 Practitioner exam I was even more impressed with the results of the PRINCE2 Practitioner GOLD package I purchased from ILX Group plc.
On feedback on the workshop, I would like to pass on my thanks to Cyril and comment on how well the workshop was managed and presented. The mix between the formal and informal training was just right. Cyril's previous experience helped relate the, at times dry, PRINCE2 subject matter to real live examples.
It should be noted that the success of the of my investment in the PRINCE2 Practitioner GOLD package was not only in the workshop but in the whole service provided by ILX Group plc, from the prompt delivery of the course materials through to the workshop and invaluable exam preparation...
Please pass on my thanks to all those involved!
Derek Rooney, UK Individual
I have written both Foundation and Practitioner exams now and have just received the results for the Practitioner. I got 85% for the Foundation and 75% for the Practitioner, so that's a clear pass for both! I just wanted to thank you for the quality of the materials that I received and for your support. The ILX course I thought was extremely well presented and really prepared me for these exams. Naturally, when backed up by your PRINCE2 tutor who told me that I could call him anytime up until late in the evening if I got stuck, success was pretty much guaranteed. I have already secured one job interview for a position which sounds amazing, and I believe it's directly attributable to the fact that I am now PRINCE2 certified. Thanks again, and all the best!
Gordon Meyer, Independent Consultant.
After deciding to invest in myself and having not studied for any exams in 20 years I found the PRINCE2 Gold CBT approach an excellent format for me to both fit around work and get back in the studying saddle!
The CBT course content and sample exercises are first rate which provide a solid foundation for the two day workshop which also provides valuable insight to using PRINCE2 in the real world.
I cannot recommend ILX Group plc and Customer Projects highly enough and was so impressed I am onto my next CBT course, ITIL Foundation...
Mark Rickwood, Project Manager
I would like to take this opportunity to congratulate ILX for the quality of the training : everything has been great, from the first e-mail and phone call to enquire about your offer until the final 2-day course/exam session and the current follow-up. I find the CD-ROM and printed materials are very good as well.
Alexandre Papajak, France
I have recently received confirmation that I am now a certified PRINCE2 Practitioner, having passed both of my exams with flying colours. I don't believe this would have been possible without such an effective training course as the one I purchased from ILX. The e-learning was brilliant, really well put together and by far the best one I have used. The use of real people to deliver the training was a great idea, as it makes you feel like you are actually being trained as opposed to simply scrolling through training material. The 2 day classroom revision days were really useful too, the trainer Steve was fab - really knew his stuff and continually challenged the group to get us thinking about applying the methodology in practice.
All in all this package was fantastic and I would highly recommend it.
It has just the right amount of information and variety, in relation to delivery of the material, to keep you engaged. I'll definitely be coming back to ILX Group in the future.
Rami Aujla, UK
This is the first ILX course that I have enrolled and participated in. From the initial communication, I found ILX to be extremely helpful, understanding and professional to ensure all pre-course questions were answered. The PRINCE2 Gold Pack which included e-learning and 2 day instructor lead course for the Practitioner qualification was excellent. The Instructor truly knew his material and related it back to real-life scenarios to make the learning practical and fun. I would certainly recommend an ILX course.
David Kei, Dubai
I’ve had an overall fantastic experience with the PRINCE2 Practitioner Gold pack. Having booked my course through the UK with the opportunity to study and take the exams in Dubai, the ILX Group were both accommodating and extremely supportive. Both the e-learning materials and the class room teaching really put the course in perspective and made you understand in depth the PRINCE2 principles without being confusing and how you can relay them into the projects within your own professional environment. It’s also a great opportunity to meet other professionals in the class room and support each other as well.
Shaan Butt, IntraLinks, Dubai
I would like to take this chance to thank the team at ILX for an extremely well organised and quality training course. The PRINCE2 Practitioner Gold pack fitted my needs perfectly and then the 2 day classroom activity was the perfect balance of obtaining the right information to go and pass the exam. Cyril our trainer was excellent and the best thing was his ability to be able to use real life examples from his experience. I have since gone back to my organisation and recommended that the whole team do the course as well and as a result they are all going through the training now. Both the e-learning materials and the class room teaching really put the course in perspective and made you understand in depth the PRINCE2 principles without being confusing and how you can relay them into the projects within your own professional environment. It’s also a great opportunity to meet other professionals in the class room and support each other as well.
Gus White, Vodafone, Dubai
I followed the ILX Group's PRINCE2 Foundation course in order to prepare for a practitioners course and exam. My time is precious, and I considered the ILX Group plc multimedia package as the most effective way forward. As a practitioner of various Project Management methods/methodologies both public and proprietary I was very impressed with the course structure and content. This is the most important, but I have to compliment ILX Group plc on the welcome addition of the templates. If you just want to pass the test, then the sample questions are an excellent aid to getting a result.
The friendly efficient staff at ILX Group plc ensured that I could get the most from the course and fit the exam in with my own schedule. Based on my own experiences, I would recommend ILX Group plc to anyone wishing to obtain foundation level in PRINCE2
Chris G Brown
The ILX Group plc Interactive CD for PRINCE2 is great distance-learning software. Even someone quite inexperienced in Project Management can easily pick up the structure of PRINCE2. The questions and answers sessions interspersed through the course build up confidence, and the step-by-step build-up diagrams showing how everything fits together are very memorable. The interactive mock examinations were really useful - it was easy to dive back into the lessons and see where you were going wrong.
Jerry Breslin, Simple Workable Technology
ILX Group plc course materials are an excellent way of learning for PRINCE2 qualifications. Their telephone support is ideal for developing a real understanding of the method.
Vince Hayes, The Leadership Factor, Huddersfield
...When studying for the PRINCE2 Foundation exam I used a combination of the manual and the CBT practice exams. I found this a very effective way of studying and monitoring my progress. I was pretty confident in the exam as it mirrored the training materials very closely. The tips given by the trainer in the hour before the exam were also helpful in grounding some of the PRINCE2 theory and I believe they did help me gain a few extra marks.
When studying for the PRINCE2 Practitioner exam, I found the CBT and workbooks very useful preparation material - the model answers, the marking schemes, the range of questions etc.
The 2-day course, led by Cyril Caulkin, was excellent. It supplemented and complimented my studies in a challenging way that teased out and answered a range of PRINCE2 queries, issues and contradictions. His knowledge and dynamic delivery style enabled me to analyse project management techniques in greater depth.
I am sure I can put these into practice in future...
Andrew Rylah, Head of Franchise Activities, Waltham Forest College
I found the training course and notes to be comprehensive and clear. The practice exams were very useful, and helped me boost my score from 50 (first practice exam taken) to 70 (last practice exam taken).
I keep a log of time spent on different projects, and if you are interested the total time I spent on PRINCE2 Foundation training was 25 hours (which includes ordering the course, running through the course, revising, 8 practice exams, writing a report on PRINCE2 for my company and the exam itself.) The time spent on the lessons themselves was close to your estimate of 8 hours.
I'd also like to thank you both for your help with ordering the course and arranging the exam. I would ideally like to look at the Practitioner exam next year, and would certainly come back to ILX Group plc for future training...
John Spanton, Product Engineer, BTS Holdings PLC
...I attended the PRINCE2 Practitioner Gold workshop just over 6 weeks ago and thought it was excellent, far exceeded my expectations and the trainer was brilliant - I learned so much during those 2 days and wouldn't be able to find fault even if I tried, it was the best training course I have attended...
Donna Bee, UK Individual
The PRINCE2 Practitioner course was hard work but well worth it. The interactive modules allow you to learn at your own pace and then the additional days in the class really bring it all together. You can really see how a project should be managed, and where you're going wrong, once you work through the modules.
It fires your enthusiasm to do it right!...
ILX Group plc in my opinion are a very professional training organisation.
I was very impressed with how the stops were pulled out to get me booked on the earliest available examination days once I had decided to do a PRINCE2 Practitioner course, and at how quickly the course materials were sent to me.
The preparation and examination days were excellent, and Cyril is a star! He answered everyone's questions and put us at ease, we were all very nervous about the Practitioner Exam. He's obviously close to the exam board and the pattern of what questions are likely to appear and at which frequency - an obvious benefit! The strategies for answering different types of questions and the ILX Group plc handouts were also top rate and helped everyone achieve their best at both examinations.
Many thanks to you and your organisation for a job well done!...
Nigel Timmis, Project Manager
I have followed the Gold Practitioner Course provided by ILX Group plc and believe this has been a key factor for having passed both the Foundation and Practitioner exam successfully after only one attempt.
I started studying about 4-5 weeks before sitting the exams. In that period I studied for approximately 1-2 hours a day (e.g. an average of 10 hours per week) following ILX Group plc joining instructions and proposed timetable quite literally.
It would be difficult for me to say what item in the Gold Practitioner course pack I found most useful. Both the Courseware and the Student/Exercise Book were very important for my understanding and essential in preparation for the two day workshop and sitting the Foundation exam. However, without the two day workshop at the end of the self-study I doubt I would have passed the Practitioner exam as comfortably...
Luise Smidth, IT Senior Business Analyst and Project Manager
I’d just like to say that the process of booking the PRINCE2 Gold package through your office in Sydney, the subsequent support, quality course interactions, and prompt feedback from you with regard to my numerous queries I have had along the way have been all fantastic – far exceeding expectations with the very high level of customer support – I would not hesitate in recommending ILX to prospective clients in the future.
Cheryl Haywood, Australia
The two day revision package was extremely worthwhile and I enjoyed using the CD-ROM training package.
...I recently participated in the PRINCE2 Foundation and Practitioner courses courtesy of ILX Group. I found these not only highly useful from a career stance, but also interesting and informative. The 2-day classroom-based training allowed me to sharpen my understanding of the methodology and also meet some like-minded people. I would highly recommend this course to those looking to run projects of any size or nature...
Ben Knowles, UK Individual
The PRINCE2 Practitioner course was excellent. The materials were well presented and the study advice sound. However, the best part of the whole package was the two day course for exam preparation. It was probably the best taught course I have attended. The tutor knew his stuff inside out and made the facts interesting. He was also shrewd enough to anticipate the possible question topics and ensure that we were well prepared.
Many thanks to you and your organisation for a job well done!
Bernie Hopkins, Consultant
ILX Group plc course materials are an excellent way of learning for PRINCE2 qualifications. Their telephone support is ideal for developing a real understanding of the method. I found the format of the PRINCE2 Foundation course very good and easy to work with. The mock exams were useful and I felt that it prepared me well for the exam.
Graham Stephens, GS Management
PRINCE2 Foundation and Practitioner e-Learning
...As a self employed Project Manager I found the ILX Group plc course a great way to get certified. I could do most of the studying at home in my own time and it didn't cost me five days pay.
The two days for the exam was the most effective course I have taken in 10 years in ICT and as a Project Manager. Since becoming a PRINCE2 Certified practitioner I have not had any problems finding work and the cost of the course has paid for itself in just three weeks of increased fees...
Jamie Loft, Project Manager Contractor
I completed the PRINCE2 Foundation and Practitioner course using the PRINCE2 Foundation & Practitioner Plus Pack that is a e-learning course with CD. It is an excellent course with really good examples and simulations that provide you an accurate indication on your level. Besides they provide very good tools and guidelines to prepare for the Practitioner exam. All the materials, along with the mandatory PRINCE2 manual, gave me a lot of knowledge. ILX was very supportive and enquired whether I need any additional support. I was on a project in my organization and could apply the PRINCE2 methodology at certain level according to the type of project I was involved in. The training definitely added value.
Veronique Gilles, Oman
I originally studied using the ILX Foundation and Practitioner e-learning over 5 years ago. I found this an effective way to study with limited time during the week. However I would like to stress the current and updated ILX e-learning is much improved and much more cost effective. I am pleased to see the guidance for marking up the manual in the new e-learning, this was not available 5 years ago - this is invaluable for students who are learning purely by CBT. I would highly recommend the e-learning to anyone looking to gain the PRINCE2 qualifications.
Hazel Portlock, Project Manager, UK
...I fully recommend the ILX Group plc's PRINCE2 training to anyone wishing to gain a good understanding or certification in the PRINCE2 methodology.
I received great customer service from day one, from my initial enquiries about the course right the way through to the end of the 3 hour PRINCE2 Practitioner Exam.
The course material arrived quickly, and immediately I could see my purchase was of a high standard.
My approach was to follow the CBT on the CD repeatedly, this really drove the PRINCE2 methodology home and was backed up by clear progress with the Mock Foundation Engine on the CD, initially I scored about 43 out of 75, but at the end I was scoring around the 65 out of 75.
As the exams loomed nearer, I used the practice practitioner exams to great effect to fine tune my knowledge and create a strategy for getting through a 3 hour exam.
I found the PRINCE2 information matrix, supplied with the course to be invaluable, such a simple idea, but in the heat of an exam, great to find the info, past exam question, manual page numbers, etc, you need to answer an exam question.
I passed the PRINCE2 Foundation with nearly 80%, which was great, and to be honest, I'm really quite hopeful that I have passed the PRINCE2 Practitioner Exam. 'Fingers Crossed'
So all in all it was a great purchase, my target was a PRINCE2 Foundation pass as a minimum, which I've achieved, if I pass the PRINCE2 Practitioner too, I'll be really chuffed!...
Nigel Thomas, Project Manager, Skandia UK
I took the PRINCE2 Foundation and Practitioner Exams using home study material from ILX. As a busy IT contract Project Manager, I found ILX’s home study course the perfect learning program for a solid understanding of PRINCE2. They have great content and a very efficient process for learning PRINCE2. The study experience gave me real knowledge and confidence in preparing for the exams in which I scored 95% on the Foundation exam and 79% on the Practitioner. All through out, I had great support from ILX’s representative in the USA and their Trainers in the UK, both of whom patiently answered my questions. The learning practice through ILX did more for me than just do well on the exams – it provided me with the knowledge and tools to incorporate PRINCE2 techniques in my project management practice in the marketplace.
Alan Mendonca, United States
My experience with ILX Group plc was very rewarding. Right from my contact with Sales consultant to the very end I was provided with quality professional services. My success in passing the PRINCE2 Practitioner and Foundation exam in first attempt with constraints of limited time is testimonial to the excellent product package provided. by ILX Group.
PRINCE2 Foundation and Practitioner Classroom Course
I would like to thank yourself and the ILX Group for the most exceptional service I have received from your good selves. Initially ILX Group provided me with excellent advice and guidance on the relevant training options that best suited my needs. Subsequently I attended your PRINCE2, 5-day intensive course in Nantwich which far exceeded my expectations. I felt the instructor, Andrew White, delivered a complex subject in a most understanding and professional manner which enabled me to confidently and successfully complete both the Prince2 foundation and practitioner examinations. I would certainly recommend ILX Group to anyone seeking a professional, quality and fulfilling training experience. Many thanks.

PRINCE2 Foundation and Practitioner e-Learning
After passing my PRINCE2 foundation and practitioner exams in the British Council office I wanted to let you know that I found ILX online course design, material and sample Foundation and Practitioner exams questions/answers very useful in passing both exams. Indeed, they did have a remarkable added value along with the Mandatory PRINCE2 manual.

PRINCE2 Practitioner Blended Learning
Please could you pass on my thanks to my trainer, I completed the Practitioner Silver course in Manchester. I found the tutorial days very beneficial, in particular the course helped my understanding of PRINCE2 in general and how to use the manual most effectively. The tutorials also undoubtedly contributed significantly to my pass mark.

PRINCE2 Practitioner e-Learning
I recently qualified as a PRINCE2 Practitioner using the ILX Group e-Learning course.
On reflection, two characteristics of the ILX course were critical for me to achieving this outcome. The interactive capabilities of the course enabled me to gain a thorough understanding of the PRINCE2 themes, processes and techniques at a pace that suited me - like having a personal tutor on call day and night, and the exam simulations prepared me with confidence for the Practitioner exam, which is especially important because of the time and accuracy pressures that apply to this exam.
I am happy to recommend the ILX Group PRINCE2 e-Learning course for any candidate wishing to become a qualified PRINCE2 Practitioner.

From initial contact to completion of the courseware the staff at ILX Group plc were very friendly and professional. The courseware itself was easy to understand and in sufficient depth to be able to attain the qualification (PRINCE2 Practitioner) with relative ease.
The tutor was very knowledgeable on his subject and passed on some helpful hints and tips from his vast experience, over and above the knowledge attained doing the course. I would unequivocally use ILX Group plc again...
