Introduction

PRINCE2® (PRojects IN Controlled Environments) is a structured method for effective project management. It is a de facto standard used extensively in the UK and internationally. PRINCE2 offers best-practice guidance on project management. The PRINCE2 method is flexible and adaptable for any type and size of project and offers excellent management foundation for any member of staff.

This is an examination-based PRINCE2 instructor led training course. Delegates will attain accreditation at PRINCE2 Foundation level. Delegates will be provided with pre-study materials which need to be completed before the course. Some evening study will be required during the course to assist in preparation of the exam.

The training equips delegates with a detailed knowledge of the PRINCE2 methodology, working through each stage of pre-project preparation and the project lifecycle.
