PRINCE2® (PRojects IN Controlled Environments) is a process-based approach for project management providing an easily tailored and scalable and flexible method for the management of all types of projects across any Industry. The method had set a standard for project management; widely accepted method and that navigates you through all the essentials for running a successful project. It embodies established and proven best practice in project management. 

This four-day course provides you with a thorough understanding of the internationally recognized PRINCE2 project management methodology.

It includes both the PRINCE2® Foundation and PRINCE2® Practitioner exams and then takes you beyond the method by giving you additional tools and techniques to become a confident project leader. 

The two levels to achieve our PRINCE 2® Certification are:  

Prince2® Foundation – The 3-day course is designed to introduce the basics, principles behind the PRINCE2® process-based method and to prepare for the test that leads to the PRINCE2® Foundation certificate. It examines the PRINCE2 methodology in greater depth and provides Project and Program Managers with the tools to effectively lead projects of all sizes and types.

Prince2® Practitioner – The PRINCE2® Practitioner course is a 2-day follow-on course to the PRINCE2® Foundation course. The course is designed to put the PRINCE2® concepts into practice and to prepare for the test that leads to the PRINCE2® Practitioner certificate.  

It also examines the PRINCE2® methodology in greater depth and provides Project and Program Managers with the tools to effectively lead projects of all sizes and types. By the end of the course, participants will be fully prepared for the official PRINCE2 Foundation and Practitioner exams, which are held in the final stage of the course.
