Why is this course right for you?

PRINCE2® is the world's most respected and widely-used project management method.

It's a prerequisite for many project management careers, and is used across 111 countries by both public and private sector organisations, including the UK government.

It defines a logical, strategic step-by-step approach to successful project management that can be adapted to projects of any size, type, complexity, industry or location, ensuring that you deliver high-quality projects that are on time and within budget, every time.

In this online PRINCE2 2017 Foundation & Practitioner course, you'll become a registered PRINCE2 Practitioner at your own pace with unlimited support from your personal tutor.

Entry requirements

As this course begins with the introductory PRINCE2 Foundation qualification, you don't need any experience or qualifications to enrol. However, some experience of working with a project environment would be helpful. 

If you already hold a project management qualification, you might be able to skip Foundation level and go straight to the advanced PRINCE2 Practitioner course.

If English is your second language, we recommend you have an IELTS 6.5/ESOL Level 2 or equivalent, but we're happy to review your case on an individual basis.

 

Course content

Your course is fully online, delivered through engaging bite-sized lessons and interactive exercises.

You'll master the PRINCE2 method and learn to adapt and apply it to real-life projects.

You’ll learn the seven aspects you must address throughout a project in order to stay on track.

  • Business case - what value will the project bring to the organisation?
  • Organisation - how will the project team's individual roles and responsibilities be defined?
  • Plans - what steps will we take to develop our plans and apply the PRINCE2 techniques?
  • Risk - how will we address uncertainties in our plans and environment?
  • Quality - what are the project's quality requirements, and how will we deliver them?
  • Change - how will we assess and address unforeseen issues?
  • Progress - how will we assess the performance of the project and decide how/if it should continue?

Processes

You’ll understand the seven processes that are overseen by a project manager.

  • Starting up a project
  • Initiating a project
  • Controlling a stage
  • Managing product delivery
