Certification Details

This fully accredited PRINCE2® Foundation course covers all aspects of the PRINCE2® Project Management method. Using voice over and animation, the course is equivalent to the three-day workshop, but in an easy to use and convenient format.

PRINCE2 (an acronym for PRojects IN Controlled Environments) is a de facto process-based method for effective project management. Accredited by the British Government, PRINCE2 is widely recognised and used in the private and public sector, globally. The PRINCE2 method is in the public domain, and offers non-proprietorial best practice guidance on project management.

The course also includes support from an experienced PRINCE2 trainer. It is ideal for anyone looking to train in their own time, pace and location to suit them. It takes around 10–12 hours to complete.
