This 5 day combined PRINCE2 Foundation and Practitioner Training Course is aimed at anyone involved in project work needing an in depth understanding of PRINCE2 up to the standard of the PRINCE2 Practitioner examination. In particular, Project Managers, Team Leaders and Managers, Project Assurance and Project Support roles working in a PRINCE2 environment and those intending to play a role in a project conducted in accordance with PRINCE2 or advise an organisation on implementing PRINCE2.
Pre Course Work:
Participants will be provided with a copy of the PRINCE2 course Manual and a pre-course study pack prior to attending days 1 to 4 and will be expected to complete at least four hours of directed self-study using these.
Course Days 1 – 3:
Formal presentation is blended with group and individual practical exercises to reinforce learning and enable participants to benefit from others’ experience whilst preparing for the examinations. There will also be time for discussion and clarification of any issues. In addition, up to two hours of self-study on the evening of the first and second days will be required (prior knowledge and experience of PRINCE2 may lessen this time). Participants take the PRINCE2 Foundation Examination at the end of day 3 and must pass this examination before continuing with the PRINCE2 Practitioner element.
The fourth day of the PRINCE2 training course is devoted to planning, preparing and practising for the Practitioner Examination.
Participants will spend the morning doing final exam preparation and will take the PRINCE2 Practitioner examination in the afternoon.
