PRINCE2® Foundation (pre-requisite for Practitioner) 

  • PRINCE2® Foundation is an introduction to PRINCE2® ® training and covers details of the PRINCE2® methodology and terminology.
  • This is a three-day course and culminates in an examination and qualification.
  • This is ideal for many people involved in projects, but not managing them, and is ideal for project supervisors, engineers, and business analysts.


PRINCE2® Practitioner

  • The practitioner-level qualification provides all the tools you need to become a PRINCE2® expert.
  • It incorporates the management of project risk, maintenance of effective communication channels, and control of spend within budgets.
  • Attention is given to practical participation in a case study environment, encompassing the most essential elements of a PRINCE2® project.
  • The course covers the practical application of PRINCE2® to real projects, including how to deal with the inevitable times when projects do not smoothly go to plan.


What will I get out of it?

  • Achieving the Practitioner level certification actively promotes efficiency, best practice, and effective management of projects through the PRINCE2® framework.
  • Facilitate in achieving career goals as a project manager.
  • The PRINCE2® project management framework is easily transferable across a wide range of industries.
  • PRINCE2® accreditation gives your employer peace of mind that you can conduct project management in accordance with established industry best practices.


Foundation and Practitioner Exams - What to Expect?

For On-premise training, The Foundation exam will usually take place on Wednesday, typically in the afternoon - and will be a multiple-choice assessment. For live streamed/online video conference training a proctored (online, time-restricted, and independently controlled) system is available from the examiners and we will book vouchers for you.

The Practitioner exam will be held on a Friday and will be based on multiple-choice questions and case study scenarios. For live streamed/online video conference training a proctored (online, time-restricted, and independently controlled) system is [available from the examiners and we will book vouchers for you. 


In January 2017 the owners of PRINCE2®, AXELOS, announced the upcoming arrival of updated PRINCE2® guidance and Foundation and Practitioner examinations. Together, these form PRINCE2® 2017 and represent the first major update to PRINCE2® since 2009.

Why was PRINCE2® updated?

The success of PRINCE2® lies in its compilation of proven best practices in project management taken from academics, business professionals, and consultants across the years. Since its creation, at least two million PRINCE2®exams have been sat in over 150 countries worldwide. This is a clear testament to the value of PRINCE2® to individuals all over the world.

However, we must all recognize that the business world is always changing, and even something as tried and tested as PRINCE2® is not completely resistant to change. As ever with PRINCE2®, the update has been a collaborative approach amassing feedback from a wide range of PRINCE2® Practitioners; the people best positioned to assess PRINCE2®  through their continued application of the method across a range of working environments. This feedback has resulted in a thorough, evolutionary, update of PRINCE2®.

What were the main changes to PRINCE2®?
The PRINCE2® update saw a new edition of the PRINCE2® manual, plus updated training materials and Foundation and Practitioner examinations. These will be launched in mid-2017. This update does not change any of the fundamentals of the method – PRINCE2® ’s overall structure of seven principles, themes, and processes remain unchanged. But the emphasis and treatments within these have shifted.

The main changes to the guidance are a greater emphasis on the following areas:

• tailoring PRINCE2®  to the needs of organizations and project environments;
• the principles that underpin PRINCE2® ;
• a greater link between the themes and principles;
• the restructuring of the ‘Themes’ guidance to accommodate specific examples of tailoring;
• the practical application of the method and guidance, with numerous examples, hints, and tips.

PRINCE2® is a wealth of project management knowledge and Best Practice that needs to be conscientiously tailored to suit each PRINCE2® and their organization. The updated manual, training, and examination will help you tailor PRINCE2® effectively to ensure you get the most out of the certification. Make sure you have the latest edition.

PRINCE2® has always been rooted in real-life experience. This update was intended to be trusted to provide practical, authoritative, and relevant guidance to anyone managing a project in today’s environment.

What does the update mean for me?

If you are a qualified PRINCE2® Practitioner, under the old format and/or your certification has expired, we would highly recommend familiarising yourselves with the revised content available or understanding the updates in fine detail. There is also an FAQ sheet available to answer any specific questions you might have. You may, in any case, be due to renew the Practitioner qualification.

This important update reinforces PRINCE2® ’s unrivaled reputation for Best Practices in project management. As always, the focus is on helping individuals and organisations across a range of job roles, sectors and geographies, to successfully manage projects.


All our current PRINCE2®  courses are approved to be held live-streamed online to ensure the welfare of both trainers and participants. This has been done in the past and has worked very well. This format is here to stay however we anticipate the re-introduction of hybrid and on-premise training as well in the Spring of 2021 if it is safe to do so. Our own risk assessment in 2020 for the accelerated opening of adult training centers on-premise showed that even with precautions there would be unacceptable risk and undue stress, despite authorities allowing it not just where we are based but across the globe... but unfortunately with significant risk for adult learning centers, sometimes with serious consequences. We do care deeply that individuals are different however and we make sure all have the necessary connectivity and guidance before the live streamed sessions start, individual attention, smaller groups, and a format more suitable for live-streamed training. There are of course benefits as well. Apart from the obvious safety aspects, no parking and transport hassles, your own favorite refreshments at home and more flexibility over when to take examinations, etc.


Please register here as per normal procedure; we will take care of the rest.

Classes are limited to a maximum of 8 participants.
