Benchmark Training & Development

At Benchmark we specialise in helping individuals and organizations to learn and use PRINCE2® and MSP®

Far too many PRINCE2® and MSP® courses are just exam crammers. Delegates are asked to complete a lengthy pre-course study pack and are then drilled in how to pass the exams. This is certainly not the best way to learn how to use PRINCE2® on a real project – and it’s not even the most effective way to tackle the exams!

A refreshing approach to PRINCE2®

Our approach is refreshingly different. If you attend a Benchmark PRINCE2® course you won’t just pass the exams – though you have more chance than with most training companies – you’ll also be equipped to use the method effectively and to discuss it with confidence at a job interview if required.

Rooted in the Real World

Our MSP® courses are delivered by practising programme managers. They will go out of their way to explain what MSP® really means in straightforward, pragmatic terms with real-life examples. A realistic case study linked to our PRINCE2® case study is used throughout the course.

Project Management Specialists

Finally, it’s worth remembering that we’re specialists in project management. All of our trainers are practising project managers as well as excellent tutors. And it’s not just the trainers who know what they’re talking about. Since we became an accredited training organization in 2002, more than 1500 delegates have successfully obtained a PRINCE2® qualification by attending a Benchmark course. Each one of them received the same first class level of personal support from our small but dedicated course administration team.
