This three-day PRINCE2 training course provides a comprehensive overview of PRINCE2 and prepares participants to take the Foundation Level examination. Participants attend the first three days of the PRINCE2 Practitioner training course and study alongside PRINCE2 Practitioner candidates. Participants will be provided with a copy of the PRINCE2 course Manual and a pre-course study pack prior to attending days 1 to 3 and will be expected to complete at least four hours of directed self study using these. 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 Foundation Examination on the afternoon of day 3. Participants will be studying alongside those preparing to take the PRINCE2 Practitioner course examination and may change to this extended programme during the course by contacting us.

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 be time for discussion and clarification of any issues as well as time available to demonstrate a practical application of PRINCE2.

This PRINCE2 training course includes a copy of the PRINCE2 course Manual, slides, accompanying notes, pre-course study pack, Foundation exam preparation pack and entry to the PRINCE2 Foundation examination.
