Course Information

Delegates should ideally have experience of managing or working in programmes prior to attending. Knowledge of the PRINCE2® project management method is advantageous but by no means mandatory, but some exposure to a project management method will aid understanding of how the programme works with these projects.

Pre-course reading

The success on the course will be enhanced by close attention to the pre-reading materials. It is recommended that candidates spend 10 hours working through the pre-reading.

If you have not received your pre-reading material within one week of the start of your course, please contact your Account Manager or info@connect2courses.com

Additional work will be required during evenings consisting of consolidation reading, mock examination questions and exercises. This evening work is an integral part of the course and delegates should expect to spend 2 hours each evening on these activities.

Please note: You must bring signed photo ID with you on any BCS exam (passport, driving licence, student card) as you will be asked to produce it by the invigilator prior to the exam.
