The PRINCE2® refers to an effective process-based method for project management, allowing the learner to efficiently apply the knowledge and skills gained through the courses, in order to successfully address any problems and risks that may arise in industry projects.

Developed by 150 leading private and public sector companies around the globe, the PRINCE2 qualifications are designed for the finer management of PRojects In Controlled Environments.

Through the application of the PRINCE2® methodology, project management professionals can harness and apply their knowledge to projects of varied sizes, locations and sectors, thus enabling them to manage project problems and risks with confidence.

The PRINCE2® Foundation Certification

The PRINCE2® Foundation Certificate is designed to introduce learners to the basic principles, themes and processes of the PRINCE2 method. 

As the initial stepping stone towards effectively using the PRINCE2® project management method, this course will help you gain a comprehensive understanding of the PRINCE2® terminology, along with the processes and themes extracted through the course. By the end you will become PRINCE2® Certified, able to take on projects which align with the PRINCE2® methodology, while also giving you the option to advance to the Practitioner Certification to become a PRINCE2® Registered Practitioner. 

The PRINCE2® Practitioner Certification

If you have already completed the PRINCE2® Foundation Certificate (or equivalent), then perhaps it is time for you to consider enrolling on the PRINCE2® Practitioner Certification and take the next step in your career. 

However, beside the PRINCE2® Foundation qualification, there are other prerequisites which can automatically advance you to the Practitioner course.

These include:

  • PRINCE2® Foundation
  • Project Management Professional (PMP)®
  • Certified Associate in Project Management (CAPM)®
  • IPMA Level A (Certified Projects Director)
  • IPMA Level B® (Certified Senior Project Manager)
  • IPMA Level C® (Certified Project Manager)
  • IPMA Level D® (Certified Project Management Associate)

The PRINCE2® Practitioner certification focuses on providing you with practical knowledge for the application and tailoring of the PRINCE2® project management method to successfully address the needs of any particular industry project.

By the end of this course, you will be fully capable to adapt, manage and apply the PRINCE2® methodology to real-world projects, regardless of the project's nature, and call yourself a PRINCE2® Registered Practitioner - a great addition to your CV.

The PRINCE2® Foundation & Practitioner Certification

The PRINCE2® Foundation & Practitioner Combined Certification is ideal for individuals who ultimately want to become PRINCE2® Registered Practitioners, but do not hold any of the necessary prerequisites to enrol straight away into the PRINCE2® Practitioner course. It allows you to complete both levels consecutively, without the need of any prior qualifications.

Tackling initially the Foundation course before advancing to the Practitioner course, this combined qualification will help you master the PRINCE2® project management method, become a PRINCE2® Registered Practitioner, and apply your newly acquired skills and knowledge to industry projects with confidence and ease, regardless of the project’s magnitude.

Whether you are new to the world of project management or hope to better manage upcoming projects in your current role, there is a PRINCE2® qualification for everyone hoping to adapt and excel in today’s modern working world.
