Following the course you will have a good understanding of PRINCE2® and, subject to successful examination results, a recognised accreditation.
The course is designed to provide you with a working understanding of structured project management as presented in PRINCE2®, to a level where you can use it to manage a project and pass the PRINCE2® foundation and practitioner examinations. The course is accredited by APMG.
What content is covered?
In advance of the course, you will be provided with a copy of the PRINCE2® Manual, along with our pre-course study materials and you should plan to do up to eight hours of study on those materials prior to attending the course. Naturally, if you have knowledge and experience of PRINCE2® this time may be lessened for you.
In order to give you the best chance of passing the exam and retaining the knowledge our course is split across two weeks. In week 1 the course is a four-day classroom event which blends formal presentation with practical exercises and focused discussion. Evening work is necessary and your trainer will assess your evening work at the start of each day. The Foundation exam is taken on the fourth day. The rest of the day is dedicated to examination technique and preparation for the Practitioner examination.
After the classroom part of the course there is a study break of one week. During this time you will be expected to undertake further distance learning and revision using the materials that we provide. You then return and take the three-hour Practitioner examination.
