Testimonials (others available on main menu)

'Thank you for a challenging and informative week, while the PRINCE2 course content was not difficult, the volume and detail was daunting but Kathleen McKinley is a fantastic tutor - clear, concise and consistent over the full 5 days. Thank you'. Sara Templer - VSSNI - Mar 2015

"It would be difficult to imagine how Elite's PRINCE2 course could be improved. Margaret did her upmost to take us through this intensive 5 day course, inclusive of 2 classroom style exams. Her knowledge, support and dedication should be commended. World Host Training uses the concept of being “wowed” by customer service, Margaret achieved this. One of the best training courses I have been on."Sebastien Mingout - NIA - Mar 2015

'Margaret is a fantastic teacher! Extremely knowledgeable in PRINCE2 and able to cover a tremendous amount of information in a very short time (whilst recapping and answering questions!). At the beginning of each day I found that I had retained all of the material taught previously, and more importantly, it all made sense. In less than a week I was feeling confident walking into an exam that I had previously anticipated to be very difficult. Thank you Margaret!' Bob Love - Feb 2015

'Everyone needs a ‘Margaret’ to pass PRINCE2.  Elite Training have a USP in Margaret Short; her professionalism and unique way of walking you through the PRINCE2 method is the only way to understand how to use PRINCE2, it would be much harder to pass without herDeborah Kerr - Feb 2015

'Kathleen, thank you very much for your help – I was very impressed by the professionalism and high standards provided throughout the training course and I definitely will recommend you to colleagues in Queen’s' - Heather Anderson - Dec 2014
