Smart PM PRINCE2® Foundation & Practitioner Course

The PRINCE2 6th Edition Foundation & Practitioner and Exam Course is an intensive course which will require a minimum of 10 hours of pre-course reading for an experienced delegate. Delegates with little or no project environment experience should allow more time than this. There are no prerequisites for enrolment to this course but a pass at Foundation level is required to write the Practitioner examination.

Course objectives

To provide delegates with the detailed knowledge of the background, principles, structure and terminology used in the PRINCE2 6th Edition project management method and an ability to apply the method to current and future projects.
To prepare delegates to sit the PRINCE2 foundation examination, and to prepare them to sit the
PRINCE2 practitioner examination.

Who is the course designed for?

The course is designed for potential and existing Project Managers as well as those whose need for proficiency in the PRINCE2 method extends beyond the reaches of a foundation qualification.
