Days 1 -3: Participants will be provided with a copy of the PRINCE2™ Manual and a pre-programme study pack prior to attending days 1 to 3 and will be expected to complete at least eight hours of directed self-study using these. In addition, up to two hours of self-study on the evening of the first and second day will be required (prior knowledge and experience of PRINCE2™ may lessen this time). Formal presentation is blended with group and individual practical exercises to reinforce learning and enable participants to benefit from others’ experience whilst preparing for the examinations. There will also be time for discussion and clarification of any issues.
Day 4: After a break of approximately one week for self study, participants return to take the Foundation Examination in which most participants are able to score at least 80%. They will spend the remaining time dedicated to preparation and technique for the Practitioner Examination.
Day 5: After a break of approximately another week, participants will spend the morning doing final exam preparation and will take the Practitioner examination in the afternoon. After passing the examination and becoming a Registered PRINCE2™ Practitioner, all Practitioners are required to pass a short re-registration examination 3 to 5 years afterwards to maintain this status.
This programme includes a copy of the PRINCE2™ Manual, slides, accompanying notes, pre-course study pack, Practitioner exam preparation pack and entry to the Foundation and Practitioner examination.
