PRINCE2 Foundation & Practitioner

PRINCE2 Update: Please be aware that Axelos have recently updated PRINCE2. This is the latest in a series of updates since the launch of PRINCE2 and will be known as the ‘2017 version’.
We will have training courses covering the 2017 version available from mid-July, however this will be operated in parallel with the existing version until the end of the year. Any courses following the 2017 syllabus will be clearly marked in the details.


This is a combined course that enables you to achieve both the PRINCE2 Foundation and PRINCE2 Practitioner certifications. It is a 5 day course inclusive of both exams. Our PRINCE2 Foundation & Practitioner courses are available in London, Birmingham, Manchester, Leeds, Bristol, Glasgow and 20 other major UK cities. 

PRINCE2 (PRojects IN Controlled Environments) is a process-based approach to project management providing a scalable method that can be easily tailored. It has become a de-facto standard for project management in the UK, but is also widely used in Australia and Europe. It is used by some of the largest organisations worldwide, making knowledge of the PRINCE2 approach a useful addition to any project managers’ CV as well as a great starting point for those new to the profession.


PRINCE2 Premium offers up to 2 free re-sits and additional features; including video based pre-course work and a free 12 month subscription to Project Manager Today magazine.

Our Premium courses start from just £895 +vat– so why take the risk?
