PRINCE2® Combined Foundation & Practitioner

Description

The PRINCE2® 2017 Foundation Level provides an introduction to the PRINCE2 methodology and terms.

The PRINCE2® Practitioner Level provides sufficient knowledge and understanding in order to apply and tailor the method in a range of different project environments and scenarios. The Foundation qualification is a pre-requisite for Practitioner.

Who is PRINCE2 Practitioner for:
The PRINCE2® Practitioner Certification is suitable for individuals who want to demonstrate they have achieved sufficient understanding of how to apply and tailor the PRINCE2® methodology in a scenario situation.

Practical Work
A specially written scenario runs throughout the course. A comprehensive set of tasks help provide a practical application of the method. There are a number of scenario-based ‘objective test’ style questions to help delegates understand how the method is applied to a project scenario. This variety of practical work also helps delegates prepare for both the Foundation and Practitioner exams.
Delegates attending this course should expect at least 1-hour of practical evening work each day to help with their continuous learning and consolidation.
