Total cost: £2,250. Your contribution, as low as £450. Use your resettlement funding to get two project management qualifications: APM PFQ and PRINCE2 qualifications on courses at Southampton (Whiteley), Hampshire.
This cost effective bundle is useful if you have little or no project management experience. We’d recommend that you take the two day PFQ course first, with its 1 hour multi choice exam. On completion attend a PRINCE2 course at our Solent Business Park training centre. There’s free parking and easy access to and from the M27 motorway system.
Course start dates
The logical order is to take the PFQ course first, followed by PRINCE2.
Bundle 2 is by far our most popular resettlement option, because you can get training for two fully accredited highly recognised project management qualifications, in the same financial year. However, you have two other options with a different emphasis.
Step 1: Once you’re happy with the course outline, select a course location and date from the drop down lists. Click “Make enquiry button”, and complete the form. Note our ELCAS number 4030, course title(s), course date(s) and course location (Whiteley) for your resettlement forms.
Step 2: We’ll email you with a detailed acknowledgement of the course, and reserve a place for you. In addition, we’ll invoice the costs including your contribution, and include our terms and conditions.
Step 3: On receipt of your payment contribution, we’ll email joining instructions and a video link of how to find us.

PRINCE2® Foundation and Practitioner
The process-based approach – PRINCE2 focuses on key processes needed for successful project management which must be present, but may be ‘tailored’ to reflect the complexity, scope and risks faced by the project. Our PRINCE2 Process Model will be used to help delegates understand and appreciate what should be done to manage each project, why it should be done, and when in the project lifecycle. Key topics include:
Practical Work – Specially written scenarios and comprehensive sets of related tasks help provide a practical application of the method. Practical work includes creating process models, completing tasks related to specific elements of the method such as how the PRINCE2 themes help to apply the PRINCE2 principles as well as a variety of objective test questions. Many tasks are designed to help you ‘link’ the four integrated elements of PRINCE2®; “principles”, “processes”, “themes” and “tailoring”.

APM PFQ (Introductory Certificate) course review
The PFQ (APM IC) was for me a good introduction into understanding the ‘Project Management’ world better. It helped me to identify areas and processes that I am not yet familiar with but I now have more confidence in tackling. Passing this course has further confirmed that I do want to go on to study for the APMP qualification. Chelsea B.
I attended the project management qualification in December (having already attended the PRINCE2 course in November). Although a challenging subject, I found that the training was engaging because there was adequate time to not only listen but to also give examples and hear examples from other individuals from the class. This aids to help people’s understanding or misunderstanding in some cases and help breakdown the subject into easier chunks. It also helps that IPSO FACTO have in my opinion some of the most experienced instructors in the country, meaning that if you just don’t get something they bring their personal experience into the story to help your understanding.

I just wanted to write and say how much I enjoyed the PRINCE2 course last week. The whole Ipso-Facto experience was brilliant, from your prompt help in providing information to determine whether the course was going to be right for me and arranging for Tim to call me, through registration and the quality of the preparation materials sent out, to starting the course with Julia Gosse. Julia is a fantastic trainer who not only clearly has bags of experience in project and business management but is also a very highly skilled trainer. Whilst there was a huge amount to learn, she made it easy to absorb and tolerated enormous amounts of questions with patience and kindness.
The venue was easy to get to and we definitely appreciated the surroundings including the lovely cafe for lunch and the lake. I will definitely recommend Ipso-Facto as a local training provider and will come to you first if you are running courses I am interested in for the future.
Oh and I passed both foundation and practitioner exams! [Rebecca S]
I attended the two-day Microsoft Project Level Introduction/Intermediate. The course was delivered very professionally with plenty of time to recap and understand each aspect. The environment and facilities were also of a high standard. [Andy]
I attended the course for two days and Tim was a great trainer, clear explanation of concepts. I have learned some good techniques for better time management and using of resources. Highly recommended. [Daniel C]
I completed the PMQ course through IPSO FACTO and they were a pleasure to work with from the moment I first made an enquiry. Every piece of course administration was made simple for me and the classroom facilities were just perfect. The course instructor was professional, knew the subject very well and focused our learning in a practical way to help put it into perspective. Overall, a very professional experience and I would recommend IPSO FACTO as a quality training company. Thank you. [Scott Sellars]
The Excel Level 2 course was brilliant. Having not had much experience of using Excel, I wasn’t sure how much I’d learn but Tim the course tutor was great and went at a good pace, making sure I understood as we went along. I learnt things I wouldn’t have had a clue about before including; Conditional Formatting, Range Names, Pivot Tables, IF Functions, Vlookups and a range of shortcuts to make daily tasks much quicker. I’m looking forward to putting It into practice. Would definitely recommend! Kirsty R.
We’ve completed a range of Microsoft Office SharePoint training courses for users, super-users and developers across our organisation. The training has been highly successful and beneficial to our staff at NATS. Duncan the trainer was very patient and knowledgeable and we would recommend IPSO FACTO for all your Microsoft SharePoint training. Stuart W.
