You use real life case study sessions, practice exam paper exercises and in-depth classroom sessions to extend your ability to apply PRINCE2 processes and planning components and pass the exam. The optional 3-hour open-book case study Practitioner exam is taken at the end of the course.
We make our training highly relevant and easy to apply using live case studies taken straight out of course delegates' experience. Syndicate group members gain practical skills by using the techniques to handle real issues and we keep class sizes small to enable individual attention.
