More About our PRINCE2® Courses

Our delivery style is geared towards intensive exam preparation. The course syllabus follows the requirements laid down by AXELOS, PRINCE2®'s accrediting body.

This formula is very effective for achieving success with the PRINCE2® exams.

What Are the Benefits of Our Approach?


  • A Convenient PRINCE2® Solution


    Our PRINCE2® course format includes your training, both exams, and certification costs. You’ll also gain access to course materials and sample Q&A to help support your learning.

    The only additional resource you need to buy separately is the AXELOS manual, "Managing Successful Projects with PRINCE2® publication, Sixth Edition, AXELOS Limited, Copyright 2017" (see below).

  • Quality-Assured PRINCE2® Training


    As a PeopleCert Accredited Training Organisation (ATO), our PRINCE2® programmes have gone through rigorous quality assurance checks, both internally and by PeopleCert.

  • Learn from Experts


    Our trainers are experienced, accredited PRINCE2® experts with a proven track record in successful PRINCE2® exam preparation.

  • Understanding the PRINCE2® Framework


    Through covering the course syllabus, you will gain an understanding of the principles of the PRINCE2® project management framework.

  • A Break Between Certifications


    This course is delivered with a short gap between Days 1 - 3 and Days 4 & 5 (usually a few days). This is to enable participants to study and sit their Foundation exam between the Foundation and Practitioner levels.

  • Exam Flexibility:


    You can schedule and sit your online exam when you feel ready. Most students complete their Foundation exam in the break between Days 1 - 3 and Days 4 & 5, and the Practitioner exam when training is completed.

Training Objectives

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

Is PRINCE2® Certification Worth Doing?

PRINCE2® Certification is a very beneficial asset for any project manager.

The PRINCE2® approach to managing projects is one of the most widely-adopted project management methodologies around the globe.

In fact, many organisations – particularly in Ireland and the UK – mandate the use of PRINCE2® for their in-house project work.

You can read more about this in our focused article, "Is PRINCE2® Worth It?".

How do I get PRINCE2® Certified?


Achieving your PRINCE2® certification is a focused, straightforward process with our streamlined approach:

  • Step 1: Attend Training

    Complete our live online PRINCE2® course over 5 days. We cover the Foundation syllabus on Days 1 – 3 and Practitioner on Days 4 & 5.

    To help you digest the information more easily, we usually have a short gap between Days 1 – 3 and Days 4 & 5. Most students use this gap to sit the Foundation exam before the Practitioner module.

  • Step 2: Study and Further Exam Preparation


    Upon completing Day 5 of our course, you will have a clear picture of how much further study is needed.

  • Step 3: Sit your Online Exams

    Your Foundation & Practitioner exams are included in your course fee.

    Once you feel ready, schedule your online exam. As we mentioned above, most students complete their Foundation exam before Days 4 & 5 of the course.

    However, we give you complete control over when you schedule your online exam.

Tailored PRINCE2® Training for Your Team

We also offer our PRINCE2® project management programmes for in-company training.

In-company (also known as 'in-house' or "on-site") is a focused style of training that affords greater flexibility and a higher level of impact for your team. Here are some of the key benefits you'll gain with in-company PRINCE2®:

Why Choose In-Company?

    Choose from classroom or live online training. In the case of classroom style, we come to your location. This cuts out any travel costs and minimises disruption to your team.
  • Focused on Your Team


    We train your team exclusively. An in-company programme is an excellent way to train and certify your entire team in PRINCE2® methods.
  • Work with Your Schedule


    Ensure minimum disruption to productivity by choosing course dates that fit your business calendar.
  • Certification Options


    You can complete both certifications (Foundation and Practitioner) at the same time, or deliver one module first, followed by the second at a later stage.

Frequently Asked Questions

This PRINCE2® Foundation and Practitioner Course is available in 3 formats: classroom, virtual, and in-company team training.

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

Virtual: live online training you connect to online from wherever you're located.

In-company: We deliver the course to your team only. This can be in any style (classroom or virtual). For classroom training, we can come to your location.

You can access our live virtual courses online from anywhere in the world.

We run our classroom course throughout the year in Dublin. Our Dublin 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.

The classroom and virtual version of this course takes place over 5 days. Each day runs from 9.30am – 5.00pm.

Classroom training runs as 5 consecutive days, usually Monday – Friday. Virtual training provides a gap between Days 1 - 3 and Days 4 & 5. We will give you a listing of all dates when you get in touch to book your place.

Here is our effective format for PRINCE2® certification:

  • Our course is 5 days in length. You will complete both the Foundation and Practitioner level exams during classroom training. Virtual training students will schedule and sit their exams online outside of training days.

  • 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 from PeopleCert, on behalf of AXELOS.

Using our format, it is possible to get PRINCE2® certified within 2 weeks. This depends on the time you allocate for study and on your exam slot.

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 must 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 know before the course begins:

  1. You must purchase the official AXELOS textbook, “Managing Successful Projects with PRINCE2® publication, Sixth Edition, AXELOS Limited, Copyright 2017” before training begins. You will need your textbook for training. We can advise on the best stockists.

  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.

Online: Live Virtual Training


Exams for virtual training are taken outside of training hours.

Most students sit their Foundation exam in the gap between Days 1 - 3 and Days 4 & 5. We strongly recommend this approach. Following training, you'll schedule and sit your online Practitioner exam when ready.


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


There are two ways to secure your place on one of our next PRINCE2® dates.
