PRINCE2® Foundation and Practitioner Certification

Duration: 5 Days

This course is designed to provide delegates with a working understanding of the PRINCE2® structured project management method. It will enable them to use the method when working within a PRINCE2® project and to pass the PRINCE2® Foundation and Practitioner examinations.

The course covers the full PRINCE2® syllabus and therefore equips delegates not just to take the Foundation and Practitioner examinations, but also to understand the broad range of PRINCE2®’s principles, key themes, processes and techniques. The aim during the course is to achieve an effective balance between exam success and the need for skills transfer.
Delegates are required to undertake preliminary study using Pre-Course Workbook. Further self-study is also expected during the evenings of each course day.
The PRINCE2® Foundation and Practitioner examinations are included within the course fee.
