    PRINCE2® Practitioner courses

       '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® Practitioner Certification training course is the next step after the PRINCE2® Foundation course  and covers more about how PRINCE2® can be customised to fit a project’s specific requirementsIdeal for persons working in project management related roles who wish to apply project methods to their roles. Suitable also for aspiring project managers who can quickly use and practise the PM tools and methods provided.

    The purpose of the Practitioner level qualification is to demonstrate you have gained knowledge how to apply and tailor PRINCE2® in different situation scenarios. A successful Practitioner will know how to apply the method to various projects in one given situation but not necessarily all situations.

    The success of the Practitioner will depend on their individual project management expertise, complexity of the project and support provided for the use of PRINCE2® in their work environment

    Eligibility criteria:
    Suitable candidates must have previously completed the PRINCE2® Foundation course , based on the "Managing Successful Projects with PRINCE2®" - 2017 Edition. If your PRINCE2® Foundation Certification pre-dates the 2017 version, you will need to re-enrol on the PRINCE2® Foundation course, but will not need to do the Foundation exam.

    Completing pre-course reading supplied by CMI is necessary before you can progress to do the PRINCE2® Practitioner exam. You will learn to apply the 7 principles, themes, and processes to a case study. This is part of your exam and an official Axelos case study is provided.

    By the end of the PRINCE2® practitioner course, you will be able to: 

    • Understand the characteristics and context of a project from the roles, products, principles, themes, techniques and processes
    • Apply the principles, themes, and processes to a case study project (official Axelos approved case study)
    • Practise exam technique and exam preparation
    • Confidently sit the PRINCE2® practitioner exam.

    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.
