         Course Duration
3 days
This three-day course, designed by industry leading project management experts, is fully accredited by the BCS and provides you with a thorough understanding of the internationally recognised PRINCE2 project management methodology.
It includes the PRINCE2 Practitioner exam and then takes you beyond the method by giving you additional tools and techniques to become a confident project leader. By working with world-class organisations, we are uniquely able to bring you a course that will give you the best opportunity to develop your project management career and deliver PRINCE2 projects confidently and competently, above and beyond just the syllabus areas.
The purpose of the Practitioner qualification is to confirm whether the candidate has achieved sufficient understanding of how to apply and tailor PRINCE2 in a scenario situation. A successful Practitioner candidate should, with suitable direction, be able to start applying the method to a real project but may not be sufficiently skilled to do this appropriately for all situations. Their individual project management expertise, complexity of the project and the support provided for the use of PRINCE2 in their work environment will all be factors that impact what the Practitioner can achieve.
What's included?
Unique multimedia pre-course orientation and support designed to help you quickly understand the PRINCE2 method in a practical environment.
Three days of classroom training split into two modules:
Day 1 (Morning) - Applying PRINCE2 in the real world - an interactive trainer led session building on, and refreshing, your Foundation knowledge in how to apply PRINCE2 to your own projects
Days 1 (Afternoon), 2 and Day 3 - Experienced tutor support on the application and tailoring of the method leading to the PRINCE2 Practitioner exam. Your PRINCE2 Practitioner exam will be taken on the afternoon of Day 3
Target Audience:
PRINCE2 is aimed at project managers and aspiring project managers. It is also relevant to other key staff involved in the design, development and delivery of projects, including: Project Board members (e.g. Senior Responsible Owners), Team Managers (e.g. Product Delivery Managers), Project Assurance (e.g. Business Change Analysts), Project Support (e.g. Project and Programme Office personnel) and operational line managers/staff.
