Complementary PRINCE2® Support Resources
With SPOCE, you don't just get a training course. We add value.
SPOCE's aim is to ensure you get the most out of your training course. SPOCE teaches PRINCE2® in a way which not only helps its clients to understand how to apply the method in order to deliver their projects more effectively and efficiently, but also prepares them well for the related examination(s). We recognize the importance of getting this balance right, as these are understandably two of the most fundamental objectives of anyone attending a PRINCE2® course.
To support delegate's pre-course study, all courses include highly acclaimed event preparation software that contains a wide array of resources and sample exam questions to help prepare for both the course and the examination(s). Being well prepared prior to the course certainly pays dividends.
