PRINCE2® 2017 Foundation and Practitioner Combined

5 Days


PRINCE2® is an industry recognised method for managing projects. Certification will give you the knowledge, understanding and confidence to apply the techniques and method successfully within your own projects. Led by an accredited expert, an interactive multi-media approach is used to bring the syllabus to life and prepare you for the exams.

The course is specifically designed for those seeking professional recognition and certification in project management but is also suitable for those who are currently managing or involved with major projects.


The course is aimed at ensuring you are sufficiently familiar with PRINCE2® concepts, techniques, processes and vocabulary so as to successfully achieve the certifications. Additionally, you will receive guidance and advice on how best to apply the learning and, where appropriate, tailor the method to best effect within your own projects.

(Note: there are three levels of certification: Foundation, Practitioner and Professional. This course covers both the Foundation and Practitioner syllabuses.)

Time is provided for discussion and clarification on, and practice in, exam techniques.

The 5 days are broadly split:
