PRINCE2 6th Edition

Course Description

PRINCE2 6th Edition

Due to Covid-19, our PRINCE2 training is currently conducted online. In a unique (and less demanding) approach, teaching is in full and half-day sessions spread across several weeks, giving time for daily self-study and between Foundation and Practitioner elements. Exam Institute PeopleCert conducts PRINCE2 exams online, with a Proctor invigilating by continual surveillance. Delegates must provide a computer and install an Exam Shield App.

  • PRINCE2 Foundation only: £545 per person plus VAT;
  • PRINCE2 Foundation & Bridging to Practitioner combined: £975 pp. plus VAT;
  • Bridging to PRINCE2 Practitioner only: £475 pp. plus VAT; Discounts are available for groups of 5+ attending the same dates.
  • Included: Pre-course induction and reading, course notes and practice exam questions (PDF copies emailed for printing), online tuition, 1 online Foundation exam. Practitioner delegates only: 1 online Practitioner exam and official PRINCE2 manual (postage fee for outside NI).

What is PRINCE2?

PRINCE2® (Projects In Controlled Environments) is a generic project-management methodology for managing any size or type of project – scalable to match complexity. Launched by the UK Government in 1996, it is the most widely used project-management method worldwide. In January 2020, PRINCE2 2017 became PRINCE2 6th edition.

“Kathleen thanks very much for all your help, support and guidance this past week. Delivering training virtually is often hard to keep attention and deliver a message, but you managed to make it very engaging and informative.”

Thank you for a challenging and informative week, while the PRINCE2 course content was not difficult, the volume and detail was daunting but Kathleen McKinley is a fantastic tutor – clear, concise and consistent over the full 5 days. Thank you.”
