The Official Axelos Manual, “Managing Successful Projects with PRINCE2®” – 2017 edition is not included in the course price, as most PRINCE2® Practitioner delegates will already have this manual.

If you do not have this manual, you can purchase it directly from us. Your training consultant can give you details on how to do this.

There are no formal “experience” eligibility requirements for those attending this course.

However, it is essential that you have achieved PRINCE2® Foundation Certification based on the 2017 Edition of the official “Managing Successful Projects with PRINCE2®” manual.

This is an intensive exam preparation course, where you will join a group of participants who will be following on from completing the 3-day training and exam for PRINCE2® Foundation.

It’s crucial to re-familiarise yourself with the Foundation course materials and to make time for the pre-course reading we provide.

It’s also important to allow time for study in the evening after Day 1 of training. This will help you to prepare for your exam on the afternoon of Day 2.

There are 3 ways you can instantly reserve your place on an upcoming PRINCE2® Practitioner course:

1. Call us on Freephone 1800 910 810 during office hours (Monday – Thursday, 9.00am – 5.30pm, Friday, 9.00am – 5.00pm).

2. Click the “Reserve” button beside any of the dates shown on this page.

3. Use any of the "Reserve My Place" buttons to send us your provisional booking instantly.

At the end of each 3-year cycle, you will need to renew your PRINCE2® Practitioner qualification.

You can do this by re-sitting the exam or through a paid membership with Axelos (owners of PRINCE2®).

With our approach, achieving your Practitioner qualification is a 3-step process:

Step 1: Complete pre-course reading

Once you have confirmed your booking on one of our Practitioner course dates, we will give you access to pre-course reading. You will need to complete this reading and re-familiarise yourself with your Foundation level materials.

Step 2: Training and Study

Attend our 2-day Practitioner course, allowing time for study on the evening following Day 1 of training.

Step 3: Exam and Certification

Your exam will take place in the afternoon on Day 2 of training. Once you pass the exam, you will receive your PRINCE2® Practitioner Certification.

The process takes 2 days plus the time required for your pre-course reading and revision of Foundation course materials.

Our PRINCE2® courses are delivered by certified training professionals with extensive experience working with and training others in the PRINCE2® methodology.

Our PRINCE2® courses run in Dublin throughout the year. All training venues are in close proximity to the M50 and have free parking provided.
