    PRINCE2® Practitioner Exam

Who attends this PRINCE2® Foundation and Practitioner Course?

We recommend PRINCE2® certification for anyone seeking an established, internationally recognised project management qualification. It is particularly beneficial as a way for those with little experience in the field of project management to gain a respected certification.

As the use of PRINCE2® is a requisite in many large Irish and UK organisations, (including many government departments), it’s a must-have for anyone serious about a career in project management.

Although some experience is helpful, there are no formal eligibility requirements for sitting the PRINCE2® Foundation exam.

About PRINCE2® Project Management

PRINCE2® is one of the most widely adopted project management methodologies in the world. In fact, many large organisations, institutions, and state agencies in Ireland and the UK mandate the use of PRINCE2® processes for projects.

PRINCE2® stands for Projects IN a Controlled Environment. If you were to try and define the methodology in a short sentence, you could say that it focuses on what needs to be done in a project, and by whom.

Wondering if PRINCE2 is the right certification for you?

Deciding on the right option for your project management training and certification needs can be a daunting process. Our project management experts are happy to talk you through the options and help you make the best choice for your career.
