Course Overview - Watch the Trailer

Project management has become a highly valuable corporate discipline. Regardless of the location, industry or size of an organization, having an effective project management framework is essential for achieving crucial goals on time, within budget and with a strict focus on corporate priorities.

This PRINCE2 Foundation & Practitioner course offers an excellent fast track to becoming a registered PRINCE2 practitioner and provides students with everything needed to prepare for, take and pass the PRINCE2 Foundation and PRINCE2 Practitioner examinations, including FREE exam vouchers.

Students will be introduced to the principles, processes, themes and project environments which make up PRINCE2, as well as the relationships between them. They will then learn how to adapt and apply the methodology in practical real-world scenarios.

Why you should take this course:

This course is ideal for anyone who wants to pass the PRINCE2 Foundation and Practitioner exams in quick succession in order to become a fully qualified PRINCE2 2017 Practitioner. Many students prefer this combined approach, as it means less time and money spent on training.
