Free Resit Exam. AXELOS® Practitioner Training Course . Special June Offer

Join our AXELOS® Foundation and Practitioner Live Online courses in June and you will qualify for a free resit exam to gain your Practitioner certification, if you fail the exam first time around.  This is a very special offer.

This applies to PRINCE2™, PRINCE2Agile™, and Managing Successful Programmes (MSP™) Practitioner exams bought as part of a combined Foundation and Practitioner course.

Project Plus is offering the PeopleCert® Take2 exam resit option free of charge for Practitioner exams for a trial period. If you were to buy this directly from PeopleCert, when you register your details for the exams you would be charged US$89 which is around $140 New Zealand dollars.

Almost all our course attendees pass their exams first time. The PeopleCert Take2 option is like an insurance policy. It lets you resit your exam at a much cheaper price than the usual exam cost– but with no refund if you pass first time.

Everyone on our training courses who has bought this option in February has passed their exam. Their feedback is that the Take2 resit option was worthwhile as it took some of the pressure off when sitting the Practitioner exam – and therefore helped them to pass the exam first time around. It could help you too.

Our focus is on helping you build your project career – and so we are fully supportive of helping you pass your exams – ideally at the first attempt.

To qualify for this free trial offer you must register, pay for and attend one of our Foundation and Practitioner courses during June 2020.

The free resit is a PeopleCert Take2 option. The resit exam must be taken online (not in our offices). PeopleCert are the examination institute for all of our AXELOS training courses.

Build Your Project Career in 2020

Earlier this year we said that 2020 is the time to build your skills, your CV and your career in project management.  For some considering a career change now is an ideal time to do that.

Your CV

Surveys confirm that getting a new job or your next contract role is helped by having the right certifications on your CV. Developing your knowledge will help develop your career opportunities.

Certifications are one thing that many HR departments and recruiters look for as a guide when considering new candidates. Of course, progression and finding a new role or contract depends on your personality, and competencies and your experience. Often it is difficult to get your skills and motivation across in a CV, and listing a relevant certification helps.

Nationwide

You can join any of our training courses from your home or workplace via the internet from right across New Zealand. We use the well established GoToTraining system.

Project Plus is NZ owned and managed.

PMP and CAPM Study Groups

We have reintroduced our study groups to help you prepare for your PMP or CAPM exam – you will already have your own copy of PMBOK and most likely will have already booked you own exams. The PMP exam syllabus changes have been delayed until at least 1 January 2021 – so now is the time to press on with your studies by joining  our three-day study group.

Self-Paced Online

If our classroom dates don’t suit you or you just don’t have the time to study with two, three or five days away from work, we can help you gain your certification through our self paced online study with online exams. We will soon publish details of the AgileBA®Foundation courses. You will have access to the online study material for 12 months and we courier the official hard copy manuals throughout New Zealand.

As well as PRINCE2, MSP, and Better Business Cases you can also study online to gain the APM certifications which will be very useful if you are planning to work in the UK. APM is the UK based Association of Project Management. Managing Benefits®, AgilePM and Project Planning and Control are other specialist online certifications that you can study online.

Plan to get certified in 2020 now.
