More About our PRINCE2® Classroom and Virtual Courses

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.

What Are the Benefits of Our Approach?

  • A Convenient PRINCE2® Training Solution

    Our 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".

  • Quality-Assured PRINCE2® Training

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

  • Focus and High-Impact Training

    Our delivery style is intensive. This formula is very effective for achieving success with the PRINCE2® exams.

  • Understanding of the PRINCE2® Framework

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

  • A Flexible Approach

    Our 5-day classroom and virtual training formats mean that you can concentrate your training into a short, focused period, avoiding the need to fit training into your schedule for months at a time.

    You can learn more about our classroom and virtual delivery styles in the next tab.

joining virtual training

About Virtual Training

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.

PRINCE2<sup>®</sup> Manual

Purchasing the Official PRINCE2® Manual

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.

What are the differences between Classroom and Virtual Training?

The delivery for classroom-based and live virtual training is very similar, with a few small differences.

Virtual Training

  • Connect from Anywhere: Virtual training is perfect for those who cannot travel to the Dublin training venues or who prefer to learn from home.
  • Gap Between Training: For virtual training, our 5-day Foundation and Practitioner Course is delivered with a gap between Days 1 - 3 and Days 4 & 5. This is to enable participants to study and sit their Foundation exam between the Foundation and Practitioner levels.
  • Exams Outside of Training: Those attending virtual training will schedule and sit their exams when they are ready. Most virtual students complete their Foundation exam in the break between Days 1 - 3 and Days 4 & 5, and the Practitioner exam when training is completed.

Classroom Training

  • Dublin Venues: Our classroom training takes place in easy-to-access Dublin venues.
  • Consecutive Days: Our classroom training courses run as 5 consecutive days, with no gap between Days 1 - 3 and Days 4 & 5.
  • Exams During Training: If you're attending our classroom courses, you will take your Foundation exam on the afternoon of Day 3 and your Practitioner exam on the afternoon of Day 5.

PRINCE2® Training for Your Team

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:

Why Choose In-House Training?

  • Complete Flexibility

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

    We train your team exclusively. In-house training is an excellent way to train and certify your entire team in the PRINCE2® framework.
  • Work with Your Schedule

    Ensure minimum disruption to productivity by choosing training 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 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:

  • Our training 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 outside of 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 from PeopleCert, on behalf of AXELOS.

Using our classroom or virtual format, it is possible to get PRINCE2® certified within 2 weeks. This depends on the time you allocate for study and 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 for our classroom and live virtual training 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.

  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 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.

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.
