The full 5-day Certificate Program is designed for current or aspiring project management professionals who need to fully master the PRINCE2 framework and at the same time obtain a globally-recognised certification. This program is also ideal for anyone intending to become a Consultant or Trainer. The program includes both the Foundation and the Practitioner certificate exams.
The PRINCE2 Foundation Certificate is designed for anyone who needs a basic understanding of the PRINCE2 framework. It suits those who are not necessarily aspiring for professional level knowledge but who nevertheless require a sufficient understanding of this project management methodology – such as people working in projects, people initiating projects, business representatives, team leaders, those with an interest in project management or who are considering moving into that field. If you take the Foundation module on its own you may at a later date take the Practitioner Prep module and complete the full program.
This course is designed for anyone who has Foundation certification and wants to upgrade their knowledge and certification to Practitioner level. The course focuses strongly on workshops, exercises and case studies so that you understand how to put the theory into practice.
Available as a half-day or one-day executive briefing, the objective is to give members of the Project Board and other critical project stakeholders an understanding of the context, purpose, role and structure of the methodology and of how projects are governed and directed by the Project Board.
This course is designed for two main groups:

What is PRINCE2
PRINCE2 is a structured project management methodology developed by the Office of Government Commerce (OGC), UK and now owned and administered by Axelos Limited, a joint venture between the Capita Group and the UK Government.
PRINCE2 is a proven methodology with recognised professional certification. It offers a clearly defined techniques to manage a project from start to finish. It is a process-based approach for project management, providing an easily tailored and scaleable method for the management of all types of projects.
PRINCE2 was developed as a non-proprietary ‘best practice’ project management methodology and with growing popularity, is evolving into an international de facto standard. The method describes how a project is divided into manageable stages enabling efficient control of resources, regular progress monitoring and decision points throughout the project. The various roles and responsibilities for managing a project are fully described and are adaptable to suit the size and complexity of the project, and the skills of the organisation.
A PRINCE2 project is driven by the project’s business case which describes the organisation’s justification, commitment and rationale for the deliverables or outcomes. The business case is regularly reviewed during the project to ensure the business objectives, which often change during the lifecycle of the project, are still being met.
Using a standard ‘best practice’ approach, PRINCE2 ensures that a quality solution can be delivered and enables projects to have:
Why Use a Project Management Method?
Project failures are all too common – some make the headlines, the vast majority are either forgotten or are swept under the carpet. Either way, there is always a cost. Sometimes this cost is critical. In many if not most cases it could have been readily avoided.
Projects underperform when those who commission it, those who manage it and those who work on it have different ideas about how things should be organised and when the different aspects of the project should be completed. A project management method is a way of ensuring that all key players are operating with the same rules and guidelines. Without a project management method, projects will rarely be completed on time and within acceptable cost – this is especially true of large projects. A good project management method will guide the project through a controlled, well-managed, visible set of activities to achieve the desired results.
There are many project management methods available. Ultimately all are based on common sense and sound management procedures. PRINCE2 is one of the most widely adopted project management methods in the world today.
