Combined PRINCE2 Foundation and Practitioner course


Introduction

The 5-day PRINCE2 program comprises a 3-day Foundation Module followed by the 2-day Practitioner Module, which can be taken together or separately. Through practice exams, workshops and overnight study, you gain the knowledge and skills required to first take the Foundation Exam on Day 3 and then the Practitioner Exam on Day 5 of the program.

The full 5-day PRINCE2 Practitioner Certificate Program is designed for current or aspiring project management professionals who need to fully master this leading PM method and at the same time obtain a globally recognized certification. This program is also ideal for anyone intending to become a PRINCE2 Consultant or PRINCE2 Trainer.  The course provides a very comprehensive coverage of PRINCE2 including the 7 PRINCIPLES, 7 THEMES, 7 PROCESSES as well as full preparation for the Foundation and Practitioner Certificate exams.

The PRINCE2 Foundation Certificate Course taken on its own is designed for those who are not necessarily aspiring for professional level knowledge but who nevertheless require a sufficient understanding of this project management methodology – such as people working in projects, people initiating projects, business representatives, team leaders, those with an interest in project management or who are considering moving into that field.

If you take the Foundation module on its own, you may later take the Practitioner module and complete the full program.
