PRINCE2® Practitioner Course Details

The PRINCE2® Practitioner qualification is one of the most advanced project management qualifications that you can achieve. 

Used in over 111 countries, by private and public sector companies, the PRINCE2® project management system forms an essential part of the way that modern companies complete projects. It's a flexible, scalable and comprehensive system that allows you to apply a common approach to projects of differing size and complexity. 

Holding the prestigious PRINCE2® Practitioner qualification shows employers that you have an exceptionally detailed understanding of the project management system and how to apply it to complex projects, helping you advance to the highest project management roles. 

The qualification expands on the basics of the PRINCE2® framework learned in the PRINCE2 Foundation course and is perfect if you are looking to build on your existing skills and excel in your career, ultimately becoming a registered PRINCE2® registered Practitioner. 

This course is the next step if you've already completed PRINCE2 Foundation (2009 or 6th Edition) or equivalent.

If English is your second language, we recommend that you have achieved one of the following (or an equivalent):

IELTS: 5.5 overall score with a minimum of 5.5 in each category
TOEFL: 71 overall score with a minimum of 17 in each category
Cambridge: Grade C or above

However, this is not mandatory and we are happy to review your case on an individual basis.

You will be assessed via a secure online proctored exam that will last a maximum of 150 minutes. There is a total of 68 questions and a minimum mark of at least 55% is required to pass.

You will receive tutor support throughout your online course. 

We offer flexible 0% payment plans that allow you to spread the cost of your qualification with our interest-free* monthly payments options. You can also pay for your qualification in full during the enrolment process.

If, however, your employer is funding all or parts of your course on your behalf, we can directly invoice your organisation for your course fees.

If you need some extra assistance, give our affordability calculator a try before you enrol.

PRINCE2® Practitioner Modules

Continued business justifications

  • Every project should make good business sense, with a clear return on investment and a justified use of time and resources.
  • The business case should be continually updated to ensure that it’s still viable.

Learn from experience

  • Everyone involved in a project should take lessons from previous projects into account.
  • You should keep a lessons log for this purpose.

Defined roles and responsibilities

  • Everyone involved in project should know what they and others are doing, including who the decision-makers are.
  • Roles should be separate from individuals, and individuals can take on more than one role.

Manage by stages

  • Projects should be planned and controlled on a stage-by-stage basis.
  • Moving on to the next stage should involve updating the business case, risks and plan, and making a detailed next-stage plan that incorporates any new evidence.

Manage by exception

  • Managers should only intervene when there’s a problem.
  • For each project objective, there should be defined limits that dictate when an issue should be escalated to a more senior management level.

Focus on products

  • Everyone involved should know what’s expected of the product.
  • All work should be based on the product requirements with a particular focus on quality requirements.

Tailor to suit the project environment

  • The PRINCE2 framework isn’t rigid. It should be scaled and adapted to suit your project’s environment, size, complexity, importance, schedule and risk.

Starting up a project

  • A project mandate is created that defines the purpose of the project, how it will be delivered, and who will be involved.
  • A project brief is created based on the mandate, past lesson logs, and discussions with people involved.
  • The project team is appointed, including an executive and project manager.

Initiating a project

  • The project manager outlines how the following performance targets will be managed: time, cost, quality, scope, benefits and risk.

Controlling a stage

  • Project managers break the project down into manageable activities known as work packages, which are then assigned to teams.
  • The team manager is responsible for coordinating the daily work and communicating with the team members and project manager.
  • The project manager oversees work package progress and intervenes when there are problems.

Managing product delivery

  • The communication between the project manager and team manager is controlled through formal requirements around accepting, executing and delivering work packages.

Managing a stage boundary

  • Project managers and the board review every stage. The board decides if the project should continue, and the project manager records lessons learned.
  • The project manager plans the next stage, updates the project plan and business case, and reports the stage end or produces an exception plan.

Directing a project

  • This is an ongoing process in which the project board manages initiation, stage boundaries, ad hoc direction and guidance, and project closure.

Closing a project

  • The formal decommissioning of a project, including handing over the product to the customer, preparing benefits and project evaluation reviews, freeing up leftover resources, and identifying follow-on actions.

Business case

  • What value will the project bring to the organisation?
  • Is the project desirable, viable and achievable?


  • How will the project team's individual roles and responsibilities be defined?
  • Does everyone understand their role and the roles of others?


  • What steps will we take to develop our plans and apply the PRINCE2 techniques?
  • How will we achieve our targets with regard to products, timescale, cost, quality and benefits?


  • How will we identify and address uncertainties in our plans and environment?
  • How will we control uncertainty and improve the ability of the project to succeed?


  • What are the project's quality requirements, and how will we deliver them?
  • How will we verify that the product is fit for purpose?


  • How will we assess and address change requests and unforeseen issues?
  • How will we identify and control changes to the project baselines?


  • How will we track and assess the performance of the project?
  • How will we decide how and if the project should continue?
