Course Description

 

PRINCE2® Foundation and Practitioner online is a learning solution created to meet the demands of our customers. The Foundation and Practitioner elements are taught via our comprehensive e-learning material. This style of delivery saves you and your company time and money.

 

Our accredited PRINCE2® Online Learning training course provides a quality platform for gaining skills, sharing experiences and learning from other organisations while offering the flexibility as to how and when you learn.

 

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.

 

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.

 

At the end of this course the delegate will be prepared for the PRINCE2 practitioner exam
