This PRINCE2® Course is intensive exam preparation that will prepare you to sit both the Foundation and Practitioner exams. Our goal is that you will understand the processes, roles, principles, and themes of the PRINCE2® framework, and feel confident that you can pass your exams first time.
Our course format is focused on providing you with the resources you need to achieve PRINCE2® Certification. We include 5 days of classroom-based or virtual training, pre-course familiarisation reading, course materials and sample exam questions, and both examinations. The only additional resource you need to purchase is the official AXELOS manual (see “More About This Course” below).
We recommend in-house training for any organisation that has several candidates for PRINCE2® certification. It's a brilliantly flexible and efficient way to train your team.
We offer in-house training in all formats: classroom, live virtual, and online. We can advise on the right fit for your team's training when you request a tailored quote.Get a Quote
Our classroom and virtual delivery style is geared towards intensive exam preparation. The course syllabus follows the requirements laid down by AXELOS, the accreditation body.
Connecting with our live virtual training is easy. You'll gain all the benefits of a classroom-based course, with the added convenience of connecting online from wherever you're currently based.
All you need for virtual training is a steady internet connection and an internet-enabled device (such as a smartphone, computer, or tablet) with a web-camera, speakers, and microphone.
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.
The official AXELOS manual, “Managing Successful Projects with PRINCE2® publication, Sixth Edition, AXELOS Limited, Copyright 2017” is the only additional resource you will need to purchase separately. This is to give you the flexibility to choose a physical textbook or e-book.
You will need a copy of this textbook before training begins, and we can point you in the direction of the best stockists when you get in touch to reserve your place.

The delivery for classroom-based and live virtual training is very similar, with a few small differences.
We also offer our PRINCE2® programmes for in-house training.
In-house (also known as 'in-company') is a focused style of training that affords you greater flexibility and a higher level of impact for your team. Here are some of the key benefits you'll gain with in-house training:

As this course focuses on achieving both Foundation and Practitioner certifications, we have divided our objectives and the course into two sections:
By the end of days 1 - 3, you will gain a thorough knowledge of the “Managing Successful Projects with PRINCE2® publication, Sixth Edition, AXELOS Limited, Copyright 2017” manual, including:
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:
This PRINCE2® Foundation and Practitioner training is available in 3 formats: classroom, virtual, and 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.
In-house means that we deliver the training to your team only. This can be in any style (classroom or virtual). For classroom training, we come to your location.
You can access our live virtual training courses from anywhere in the world.
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.
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 with classroom and virtual training:
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 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 for our classroom and live virtual training know before the course begins:
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.
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.
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.
