Course Format

This course comprises of three main elements. The first provides coverage of PRINCE2™ principles: the need for structured project management, why pragmatic and intelligent use of methods is so important, and how PRINCE2™ can be employed to achieve business-related objectives. The second element considers the method itself: what PRINCE2 looks like, how the major components & processes such as planning and control work on their own as well as together, and how the roles associated with the PRINCE2™ method can be made really effective. The third element deals with the implementation of PRINCE2™ and provides sound, practical advice on introducing the method into a range of different environments, always bearing in mind the need to keep bureaucracy to a minimum.

All delegates will sit the PRINCE2™ Foundation examination (a multiple choice paper) in the late afternoon of the third day of the course.  Delegates who wish to appear on the central register for qualified PRINCE2™ Practitioners may sit the PRINCE2™ Practitioner examination on the fifth day of the course.  Flexibility is a key issue within the PRINCE2™ examination, therefore delegates can either take the examination on the final day of the course or at a later date when they are feeling more confident of their understanding of the method and its application.  Delegates choosing to take the examination at a later date will attend the first 3 days of the course and return to attend the final 2 days, taking the PRINCE2™ examination on the second day.  When making your booking please advise of your attendance preference.

This course is fully compliant with the latest version of PRINCE2™, and carries the award of 37.5 Professional Development Units (PDU's) for PMI re-certification.

On completion, delegates will be able to:

  • Understand the philosophy and structure of PRINCE2™

Who should attend

The PRINCE2™ Practitioners course is intended for managers and potential PRINCE2™ practitioners who require hands-on experience of the PRINCE2™ method, techniques, processes and components.
