PRINCE2 Introduction

Here is an excellent opportunity to gain or formalise your project management skills by taking a PRINCE2 Weekend Sheffield course. The course typically spans two consecutive weekends. PRINCE2 (PRojects IN Controlled Environments) is a structured method for effective project management. It is a de facto standard used extensively in the UK and internationally. PRINCE2 offers best-practice guidance on project management. The PRINCE2 method is flexible and adaptable for any type and size of project and offers an excellent foundation for any member of staff.

This is an examination-based PRINCE2 instructor led training course. Successful candidates will attain certification at PRINCE2 Foundation and for those attending both weekends, Practitioner level also. Candidates will be provided with pre-study materials which need to be completed before the course. Some evening study, both on the training days and in the intervening days will be required during the course to assist in preparation of the exam(s).

The training equips candidates with a detailed knowledge of the PRINCE2 methodology, working through each stage of pre-project preparation and the project lifecycle.

Here are some key features of our PRINCE2 Weekend Sheffield Course to compare and contrast with other providers:

  • 100% Foundation Pass Rate for our In-House Trainer with typically 100% Practitioner Pass Rate per event!
  • Trainer available to meet and discuss the course prior to you booking
  • Maximum of 10 Attendees
  • Air Conditioned Room
  • Costa Drinks and Refreshments Included
  • S1 Postcode Centre with Parking Available

PRINCE2 Certification and Related Examinations

There are two main levels of exam: Foundation and Practitioner (Re-registration is at Practitioner level and applies to PRINCE2 2009 only).

For Foundation level, the syllabus is primarily covered over the first two days of the PRINCE2 Weekend Sheffield event with some evening work required. The exam is taken either during the second weekend or online.

For Practitioner, the course is typically two days in duration and the syllabus is covered over a weekend. The Foundation certification is a prerequisite. For someone requiring both exams they'll typically attend consecutive weekends with the Foundation and Practitioner exams taken on the second weekend.

The Re-registration exam is a shorter version of the Practitioner exam, applicable to PRINCE2 2009 only. We'll help you assess how much study will be required. For someone who is fluent with the method this may only be a couple of hours practise. Typically though this will require attending the Practitioner weekend course and for someone who has not used the method for some time, attending both weekends may be necessary.
