PRINCE2® Foundation & Practitioner Training
Become PRINCE2® trained with an Official Licensed Affiliate.
PRINCE2® is internationally accepted as the leading “best practice”, process based project management approach in both the public and private sectors.
PRINCE2® stands for “PRojects IN a Controlled Environment” and the methodology can be applied regardless of project scale, type, organisation, geography or culture. By considering the key variables involved in any project (costs, timescales, quality, scope, risk and benefits), it allows the project manager to address the planning, delegation, monitoring and the control of the project using a framework of processes and themes.
Accredited PRINCE2® personnel are highly sought after and many organisations consider this to be a minimum requirement for anyone looking to contribute to projects. In addition to organisations benefitting from far better controlled and managed projects, the individuals who understand and can implement the methodology have far higher chances of success in their careers.
Our industry recognised, interactive E-Learning programme delivers you the training for both PRINCE2® Foundation and the PRINCE2® Practitioner in one enrolment. This course consists of the training only; if you wish to get qualified you should purchase our training and examination package.
We also offer the option to do the training and exams at a classroom with many locations and dates available, please speak to us for more information.
