    PRINCE2® courses Foundation & Practitioner

       'I really liked this PRINCE2® course as it was wasn't rushed like other intensive 3-5 day courses. I could do the E learning in my own time and attend live online classes after work, which were recorded, good experience overall'  Anthony Talbot- Read more Reviews

    The PRINCE2® course Foundation & Practitioner is a combined qualification which is made up of the first 7 weeks of the foundation certificate, and once that is successfully passed, you can progress for a further 4 weeks to the practitioner certification.

    Ideal for those working in Project Management where you need to cover all the principles of PRINCE2® methods and apply the methodologies in an incremental approach.

    What is PRINCE2®?

    PRINCE2® stands for Projects IN Controlled Environments and is a widely used project management method providing all the essentials for running a successful project. It is a standard globally recognised and used by the UK government, private sector, and internationally.  PRINCE2® sets out best practice in project management and is a flexible method aimed at all types of projects.

    Course Content

    The PRINCE2 method is composed of 7 themes, 7 principles and 7 processes and is based on a published textbook ‘Managing successful projects with PRINCE2® ‘. It is 
    integrated with 4 main elements; Principles, Themes, Processes and Tailoring PRINCE 2 to the project environment. 

    Participants must pass the PRINCE2 Foundation course exam before progression to the PRINCE 2 course Practitioner level and exam. There is a study week to do the online exam before progressing to the Practitioner level.

    A Unique approach 

    The course is delivered through an incremental ‘non boot camp’ approach which guarantees better results and adoption of the Prince 2 methodology over time. The course duration deliberately avoids the intensive 'boot camp 4-5-day approach’ which results in higher failure rates, additional repeat test fees and lack of integrated learning.
