    The PRINCE 2 course content supplied by Simplilearn is indeed world class as are the sessions. However, most importantly, they are extremely customer focused. I was facing some issues, which they took great care to resolve and stayed with me till it was fully resolved. Today, the market is teeming with competition and everyone claims to be better than the rest. However, if this customer centricity stays, Simplilearn will be very difficult to beat. My best wishes are with the entire team and I'm already signing up for another course!

    I received my PRINCE2 certifications (Foundation & Practitioner) by courier today, thanks! Another good news is that I got a new job last week with Wipro Technologies as a Project Manager, and I believe that my PRINCE2 certification definitely helped, as I've been assigned to a major UK client.
