PRINCE2 Practitioner

"I attended, via a Welsh Assembly Government training grant, ReAct, the PRINCE 2 Foundation and Practitioner course the week of 28th October. I undertook this in an effort to further my career potential having recently been made redundant. I had been a very successful Project Manager, responsible for 120Million pounds worth of large scale renewable energy projects, but had never sought a qualification to match my practical experience. The PRINCE2 Course was hard work, much harder than I was expecting and there was a mass of information to soak up, before, during and in the evenings. I found the entire course to be very beneficial overall. The facilities at Stratum were outstanding, everything was provided for and the classroom itself was clean, quiet and comfortable for the long days of learning. All the Stratum staff were very attentive and the lunch selection and quality was brilliant. The whole weeks training was run by Tony Perks, what an outstanding teacher. He bought decades of real work Project management experiences to the classroom, which made the whole course so much easier to understand. He also bought an element of fun and laughs to the course, which made it so much easier to take in rather than previous courses by other providers I have attended where you are stuck on a desk, with a book and a presentation for the whole week. Tony was engaging and exciting to listen to. The fact that he’s actually done the job really added benefit. "

"Just wanted to say a huge thank you for a thoroughly engaging, interesting and excellent week on the PRINCE2 course. I really enjoyed the week and really related so much to the all of the examples that you gave and the way you delivered everything. You really brought the course to life. I never expected to enjoy the course to the extent that I did and have felt really impelled to start utilising PRINCE2 in my work. Many thanks to the team at Stratum as well for making the whole week a great experience. "

"After recieving ReAct funding from the Welsh Government, I have recently attended two courses with Stratum and thoroughly enjoyed them both. The Stratum staff are well informed, friendly and very helpful and the training accommodation is well appointed, comfortable and quiet, especially important when there are exams at the end of the course. The first was the PRINCE2® Practitioner course and I can't praise the tutor Tony Perks highly enough. He is an enthusiastic and engaging trainer, who was expert in the subject. The proof was that the pass rate for the exam at the end of the course was well above the national average. The second was the ITIL foundation course and again it was well organised, Stuart Aitken was experienced in ITIL and the training was structured and delivered to enhance the pupil experience. I wouldn't hesitate to attend further training with this company. I recommend Stratum to anyone looking for good quality training in Cardiff or Wales. "

"We have recently used Stratum to deliver Excel training in-house. All of our staff are proficient in Excel but we thought it beneficial to provide a refresher at intermediate level and also to really get to grips with software; a few advanced sessions. The feedback has been brilliant and delegates have already commented on how they’ve been able to apply their knowledge. It was an obvious choice to deliver the training on-site given we have the facilities and overall worked out less disruptive and much more cost-effective. "

"I just wanted to set out my thanks to all at Stratum; my account manager Imran for being so helpful, knowledgeable and approachable throughout the process. Also a big thank you to Tony Perks for the excellent Prince2 course. Tony really knows his Prince2 and his way of delivering knowledge is excellent. I would emphasise I have taken Prince2 courses with other training organisations in the past and whilst they were good, Stratum are in my opinion a grade above."
