Prince2 - Foundation, Practitioner or Combined Courses

Prince2 - Foundation, Practitioner or Combined Courses



Prince2 (PRojects IN Controlled Environments) is the world’s most widely adopted, government recognised and industry standard project management professional qualification.

This online course will provide you with the knowledge and tools to guide you through the techniques and processes needed to manage successful projects of any type or scale, and in any industry.

The Course

We offer both the Foundation and Practitioner qualifications which you can choose to do over a 9-month period through our online e-learning provision.  This enhances your learning experience by allowing you to take both exams over a short or longer period of time.  

The e-learning is broken into bite-size sessions, combining cutting-edge multimedia and interactive exercises for maximum enjoyment and knowledge retention. This course conforms to the Prince2 6th edition syllabus. 


What is included? 

  • 9 months online access to our accredited Prince2 Foundation course
  • Full tutor support, plus many additional resources to help put Prince2 into practice
  • Prince2 Foundation exam simulator
  • Prince2 process map
  • Free Prince2 Practitioner digital manual once you pass the Foundation exam, which can be used for the practitioner course and exam
  • Free e-learning tours most Tuesday and Thursday mornings. This really helps new students get the most from their e-learning experience (please, let us know if you would like to book)


Please note: 

  • The practitioner status exam cannot be taken without first taking the Foundation Certificate and therefore you will need to provide a copy of the certificate upon enrolment of the Practitioner course if you are not taking both courses together.
  • At Foundation level, you will not need to purchase the Prince2 learning manual as the course is designed to provide you with all the necessary information to take the exam with confidence.
