Course Overview - Watch the Trailer

PRINCE2 is arguably the world’s most popular project management methodology. It provides a clear yet flexible approach, ensuring that projects can be broken down into manageable tasks while still remaining relevant to essential business goals. Having been regularly updated, PRINCE2 remains highly relevant even after decades of use across virtually every industry.

Continuing on from PRINCE2 Foundation which is a pre-requisite, this course offers everything students need to prepare for the PRINCE2 Practitioner exam. Candidates will learn how to apply and adapt the principles of PRINCE2 in practice, ensuring that they are prepared to utilize the methodology in real-world projects. Students will reinforce their new knowledge through practice examinations, and they can also have any questions answered by our in-house team of experienced tutors.

At the end of the course, students will be able to request a FREE exam voucher from Good e-Learning in order to take the official PRINCE2 Practitioner examination.
