Why take this course?

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.

This course provides an excellent next step for users who have already completed a PRINCE2 Foundation course and exam. It demonstrates how the theory learned at Foundation level can be applied in practice, ensuring that students are prepared to apply and adapt the principles of the PRINCE2 project management methodology.

The flexibility of PRINCE2 has helped to make it one of the world’s most popular frameworks for project management. A full PRINCE 2 certificate will demonstrate your ability to utilize and apply the methodology, making this course highly valuable for aspiring project managers and designers, as well as those involved in development and delivery.
