Course Information

Prior to attending your course, you need to ensure you satisfy the pre-requisites of holding one of the following certifications:

PRINCE2 Foundation

  • Project Management Institute (PMI):
  • Project Management Professional (PMP)

Certified Associate in Project Management (CAPM)

  • International Project Management Association (IPMA):
  • IPMA Level A (Certified Projects Director)
  • IPMA Level B (Certified Senior Project Manager)
  • IPMA Level C (Certified Project Manager. E.g. APM PQ)
  • IPMA Level D (Certified Project Management Associate - e.g. APMP)

You will need to provide evidence that you hold one of the above certifications prior to sitting your PRINCE2 Practitioner examination. Please bring your candidate number and/or certificate to your course to show the invigilator. If you cannot provide your candidate number and/or certificate,

You will be required to bring along your own copy of the official PRINCE2 manual: Managing successful projects with PRINCE2. You may have received this on your Foundation course. Please ensure you bring the latest version - ISBN 978-0-11-3310593.

You must bring photographic identification on exam days (passport, driving license or student card) as it is an examination requirement to produce it for the invigilator prior to the exam. Failure to produce a valid form of photographic identification may result in a candidate not being able to sit the exams. For any questions about what form of identification is acceptable, please contact your Account Manager

Pre course reading

You will be provided with pre-course reading prior to attending the course. This pre-reading is interactive eLearning and is expected to take approximately two hours to complete - this is only a guide and you may wish to spend longer on this activity to help you prepare effectively. Your learning starts with this pre-reading, so please ensure you can complete the pre-course activities in full prior to attending.

Please check that you are able to view your pre-reading correctly by verifying you meet the minimum technical system requirements. Please also ensure that before you start your pre-reading, you read the terms and conditions

 

PRINCE2 is aimed at project managers and aspiring project managers. It is also relevant to other key staff involved in the design, development and delivery of projects, including: Project Board members (e.g. Senior Responsible Owners), Team Managers (e.g. Product Delivery Managers), Project Assurance (e.g. Business Change Analysts), Project Support (e.g. Project and Programme Office personnel) and operational line managers/staff.

The purpose of the Practitioner qualification is to confirm whether the candidate has achieved sufficient understanding of how to apply and tailor PRINCE2 in a scenario situation. A successful Practitioner candidate should, with suitable direction, be able to start applying the method to a real project but may not be sufficiently skilled to do this appropriately for all situations. Their individual project management expertise, complexity of the project and the support provided for the use of PRINCE2 in their work environment will all be factors that impact what the Practitioner can achieve.

By passing the Practitioner exam, candidates should be able to apply and understand how to tailor PRINCE2 effectively to a project within an organization environment supporting PRINCE2.

Specifically candidates should:

  • Understand the relationships between the roles, management products, principles, themes, techniques and processes
  • Be able to apply the principles, themes and processes to a project
  • Be able to create and assess management products.
