PRINCE2® 2017 Foundation & Practitioner (level 1 & 2) eLearning

This PRINCE2 Foundation & Practitioner course offers an excellent fast track to becoming a registered PRINCE2 practitioner and provides students with everything needed to prepare for, take and pass the PRINCE2 Foundation and PRINCE2 Practitioner examinations, including FREE exam vouchers.

Students will be introduced to the principles, processes, themes and project environments which make up PRINCE2, as well as the relationships between them. They will then learn how to adapt and apply the methodology in practical real-world scenarios.

Project management has become a highly valuable corporate discipline. Regardless of the location, industry or size of an organization, having an effective project management framework is essential for achieving crucial goals on time, within budget and with a strict focus on corporate priorities.

This course is ideal for anyone who wants to pass the PRINCE2 Foundation and Practitioner exams in quick succession in order to become a fully qualified PRINCE2 2017 Practitioner. Many students prefer this combined approach, as it means less time and money spent on training.

When it comes to project management, very few frameworks are as widely used as PRINCE2. This course offers students everything they need to become certified PRINCE2 practitioners, including practice exams, 24/7 support and expert content written by our in-house team of specialists.

There is no prerequisite for taking this course. However, students cannot take the PRINCE2 Practitioner examination without first obtaining a PRINCE2 Foundation certificate (or Project Management Professional (PMP), Certified Associate in Project Management (CAPM), or IPMA Level A, B, C or D).
