PRINCE2® Practitioner Training Course

Will Prepare You For The PRINCE2® Practitioner Examination


Our 2-day PRINCE2® Practitioner training course covers the same PRINCE2® method and the Processes, Themes and Principles as our 3-day PRINCE2® Foundation course, but to a much greater level of detail in order to prepare you for the examination.

PRINCE2® is a registered trade mark of AXELOS Limited.

During our PRINCE2® Practitioner course, we will dissect the management products used in each Theme and Process for a full understanding of how they should be used to manage a project.

In January 2017 AXELOS announced the upcoming arrival of updated PRINCE2® guidance and new Foundation and Practitioner examinations, which will be launched in the middle of the year. Together, these form the PRINCE2® 2017 update and represent the first major revision of PRINCE2® since 2009.
