The PRINCE2 Practitioner examination will test whether you can apply and understand the PRINCE2 project management method to a real life project scenario. The PRINCE2 Foundation qualification is a prerequisite for the PRINCE2 Practitioner exam, which assesses the ability to apply understanding of the PRINCE2 project management method in context.

yes, absolutely. We are an ATO (Accredited Training Organisation) by Peoplecert examination institute, the sole exam provider for PRINCE2 on behalf of Axelos (Axelos owns PRINCE2). Our trainers go through a rigorous onboarding process and our courseware is signed off by Peoplecert examiners.
Our PRINCE2 Trainers have typically been teaching PRINCE2 or worked in Project Management for over 10 years, having taught thousands of delegates in that time. Our trainers are all accredited by Peoplecert too, who make them undertake a rigorous on-boarding process. Our trainers have a lot of hands on Project Management experience in a host of industries, from the Financial sector to Engineering and Government.
Our PRINCE2 courses include everything you need to pass the PRINCE2 exams, including the official Managing Successful Projects with PRINCE2 publication (2017 Edition), our course slide manual and PRINCE2 exams. We also offer a foundation exam guarantee, one free resit if you fail the Foundation exam. Exams are taken in the classroom, not online. Read our full guide here on PRINCE2 Course Cost and what's included.
Our course has been carefully tailored and condensed into 4 days, we cover the full PRINCE2 syllabus, in reality, the 5th day with other providers is only the practitioner exam so there's no extra teaching, it finishes at 12 pm on the Friday of their course.We feel its just a more efficient use of your time to do it this way. Many other providers also now make you do the exam online at home, all our exams are taken in the classroom.
PRINCE2 2017 is the latest and current version of PRINCE2. All of our PRINCE2 courses are the PRINCE2 2017 updated version, certified by PeopleCert Examination Institute on behalf of Axelos. We no longer offer PRINCE2 2009 as of August 2017.
Our PRINCE2 Weekday courses run over four days, Monday-Thursday, 9:30 am - 5 pm daily. You will do the PRINCE2 Foundation level on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday morning (Foundation exam only). The Practitioner level continues on Wednesday & Thursday (Practitioner exam Thursday afternoon).
You will need to do at least 2/3 hours homework every evening, based on your tutors advice. This will be a combination of reading and sample exams. Your tutor will help you as much as possible, but ultimately you need to do the practice exams and questions on your own to really get to grips with the syllabus and exam style.
We Strongly recommend that you do your Foundation and Practitioner course and exams in the same week, Monday - Thursday (or consecutive weekends, if weekend course).
Pass rates for Practitioner are higher when taken directly after the Foundation course. If you need to leave time in-between Foundation and Practitioner levels for work or personal reasons that’s not a problem, but we don’t recommend it where possible.

The foundation level teaches you the basics of PRINCE2 and gives you details on the body of knowledge. We always recommend delegates do the practitioner level too as it teaches you how to apply the knowledge learnt at foundation using project scenarios. Its also more cost effective.
