PRINCE2 Foundation and Practitioner

5 days course



The 5 day PRINCE2 Foundation and Practitioner course provides a detailed knowledge of PRINCE2 and the ability to apply the method in different circumstances.

PRINCE2 is a valuable qualification but not without effort!  The course is likely to be seen as intensive and some evening work will be required.  By the end of the course, you will be fully prepared for the requirements of the official PRINCE2 Foundation and Practitioner Exams, included in the course.

Course runs 9:00 – 5:00 each day



Course Structure

This course is organized in three parts:


Impetus Consulting provides the official PRINCE2 manual, “Managing Successful Projects with PRINCE2” along with full pre-course reading lists, practice questions and support.  Experience has shown that proper preparation enhances the chance of exam success so emphasis is placed on this important pre course work.  Your tutor is available by email to provide support, guidance and extra resources, if required

Days 1-3

This part of the course builds on the preparatory work and provides a thorough grounding in the PRINCE2 methodology.  Through a series of presentations, exercises and group work, delegates gain an in-depth knowledge of PRINCE2.  At the end of Day 3 delegates sit the official PRINCE2 Foundation exam.  Exams are marked immediately and results communicated to all delegates.

Days 4-5

Building on success in the Foundation exam, Day 4 is devoted to Practitioner exam preparation. During the day, the course covers exam tips and technique and practices typical exam questions using realistic scenarios. Day 5 begins with a revision session and then the official PRINCE2 Practitioner exam.  The course closes in the early afternoon of Day 5 and Practitioner results are available within 4-6 weeks of the exam.


Learning Objectives

In this course you will achieve a detailed and practical understanding of the Projects In Controlled Environments (PRINCE) project management method. You will be able to work as a part of a PRINCE2 Project team in projects of all sizes and types.




Delegates will have completed the pre-course reading required.  Some experience in a project management environment is useful.
