More About our PRINCE2® Classroom and Virtual Courses

The delivery for classroom-based and live virtual training is very similar. The main difference is where you are based for the course.

Classroom training offers the benefit of being in a very focused learning environment. Virtual training is perfect for those who cannot travel to the Dublin training venues or who prefer to learn from home.

Training Objectives

As this course focuses on achieving both Foundation and Practitioner certifications, we have divided our objectives and the course into two sections:

Days 1 – 3: Foundation Certification

By the end of days 1 - 3, you will gain a thorough knowledge of the "Managing Successful Projects with PRINCE2® - 2017 Edition" manual, including:

  • The characteristics and context of a project and the benefits of adopting PRINCE2®.
  • The purpose of PRINCE2® roles, management processes and themes.
  • The PRINCE2® principles and processes.
  • You will be prepared to sit the PRINCE2® Foundation Exam.

Days 4 & 5: Practitioner Certification

By the end of days 4 and 5, you will be able to apply and tailor PRINCE2® to address the needs and problems of a given project scenario. Your ability to do this will be examined by the use of official Axelos case studies. You will:

  • Understand the relationships between the roles, management products, principles, themes, techniques, and processes.
  • Be able to apply the principles, themes and processes to a case study project (official Axelos approved case study is used).
  • Be prepared to sit your PRINCE2® Practitioner exam on the final day of training.

Be Prepared


Pre-course familiarisation reading is important for all participants of PRINCE2® courses. Each participant will also need to set aside time during the evenings of the training for study.

We will guide you at each stage of the planning process, making sure that you have advance access to the pre-course reading that is required to support their training.

More About our Online PRINCE2® Course

Frequently Asked Questions

This PRINCE2® Foundation and Practitioner training is available in all formats: online, classroom, virtual, and for in-house team training.

Classroom training is in-person, scheduled courses that run in Dublin throughout the year.

Virtual training is similar to classroom, but you connect remotely from wherever you're located.

Online is self-led learning, ready to purchase on-demand.

In-house means that we deliver the training to your team only. This can be in any style (classroom, virtual, or online). For classroom training, we come to your location.

We run our classroom course throughout the year in Dublin. Our Dublin training venues are all located outside the city centre, helping you to avoid traffic! Each training venue is situated close to the M50 and offers free parking for our delegates.

You can access our virtual and online training courses from anywhere in the world!

The classroom and virtual version of this course takes place over 5 consecutive days. Each day runs from 9.30am – 5.00pm. Training takes place on weekdays (usually Monday – Friday).

Here is our effective format for PRINCE2® certification with classroom and virtual training:

Once you confirm your course place, you’ll receive access to our pre-course familiarisation reading. This takes between 5 – 6 hours to complete in advance of attending training. It is very important that you complete this reading.

Our training is 5 consecutive days in length. You will complete both the Foundation and Practitioner level exams during training. Note: You will need to allow time for study each evening during training.

Once you have passed your exams, you will receive your PRINCE2® certification!

Using our classroom or virtual format, it is possible to get PRINCE2® certified within 1 week during training plus the 5 – 6 hours of pre-course reading.

This course has an exam preparation focus, meaning that it is very intensive and theoretical in style.

Although you will certainly gain knowledge and understanding of the PRINCE2® framework, you will spend a high proportion of time during training concentrating on exam preparation.

The PRINCE2® Foundation certification will never expire or need to be renewed. You will need to renew your Practitioner certification every 3 years.

This can achieved either by re-sitting your Practitioner exam, or through Axelos membership (costs apply).

There are 3 things we ensure all delegates for our classroom and live virtual training know before the course begins:

  1. It is very important that you take the time to complete the pre-course reading we provide. This usually takes about 5 – 6 hours.

  2. You will need to allow time for study every evening during training. With this in mind, we recommend keeping other commitments during the course to a minimum where possible.

  3. This is an exam preparation course. As such, it is quite intensive and does not incorporate a lot of practical work.

There are no official experience requirements set out by Axelos for those working towards PRINCE2® Foundation and Practitioner certifications.

Although we sometimes have participants with no project management experience, we have found that some familiarity with a project management environment is helpful.

Classroom & Virtual Training


You will complete both the Foundation and Practitioner exams in class, during training.

The Foundation exam takes place on the afternoon of Day 3. You must pass this exam to progress to Practitioner level.

The Practitioner exam takes place on the afternoon of Day 5.
