Overview

If you wish to book your PRINCE2 Foundation and Practitioner events in the same week, please do so using the combined course title. The PRINCE2 Foundation exam will be provisionally marked during the course so you can then continue directly to the Practitioner event.

If you are only booking the PRINCE2 Foundation course, we recommend you do not book a Practitioner event until you have confirmation that you have successfully passed the Foundation exam; this is a mandatory prerequisite for the Practitioner exam. The marking process for the PRINCE2 Foundation exam can take anywhere between two and six weeks.
PRINCE2 is one of the world’s most widely used project management methods. Based on best-practice, the method can be applied to any project irrespective of its size, industry sector, geographic location or culture. This course provides a definitive overview of PRINCE2. We cover its four integrated components – the principles, themes, processes and project environment. We also look at management roles required in a PRINCE2 project and what management products must be created to ensure the project is delivered in a coordinated, consistent and transparent manner.
Using elements from our ‘Performance Based Learning’ approach, we help you to not only know PRINCE2, but also apply and tailor it for your projects. The course has been designed by award winning instructional designers to ensure that it provides an interactive and engaging introduction to PRINCE2. Our experienced PRINCE2 experts explain the method through a wide range of individual and group exercises, case-study application, learning ‘games’ and practice exam questions.
