Overview

PRINCE2 has established itself as the premier approach to managing projects. PRINCE2 is generic – capable of being applied to any kind of project – scaleable and business-driven. Organisations that have adopted the PRINCE2 have claimed that they have been able to achieve greater customer satisfaction during and at the end of projects, to reduce costs and to realise greater benefit from project deliverables.

The Registered PRINCE2 Practitioner qualification is now established as an external competence measure by organisations in the UK, the Netherlands, Australia and elsewhere.

PLEASE NOTE: This course is over two days, whereby day one is a full training day and day two is a half day where the delegate will do the exam.

Audience

Those who have passed the Foundation fairly recently and have been using PRINCE2 in their 'day job' will need to set aside about fifteen hours for self study before the first classroom day (Examination Preparation Day). Those for whom this is not true may need to allow a little more time.
