About The Courses
PRINCE2® is the world’s most popular project management methodology. It is compatible with all other project management qualifications as it provides the technical structure of the framework of any project, which will complement the softer skills learnt on other qualifications. The PRINCE2 qualification scheme has been developed to offer three levels of qualification, Foundation, Practitioner and Professional. Course includes training and examination fee.
Purpose of the Foundation Qualification
The purpose of the foundation qualification is to confirm you have sufficient knowledge and understanding of the PRINCE2 method to be able to work effectively with, or as a member of, a project management team working within an environment supporting PRINCE2. The foundation qualification is also a prerequisite for the Practitioner qualification.

Over the years, businesses have witnessed the benefits of PRINCE2 methodology and have adopted the same. Today, PRINCE2 approach is one of the well-known and most frequently used project management approaches. In fact PRINCE2 certification has become one of the most demanded professional certifications in project management. Course includes training and examination fee.
Purpose of the Practitioner Qualification
The purpose of the Practitioner qualification is to confirm whether the candidate has achieved sufficient understanding of how to apply and tailor PRINCE2 in a scenario situation. A successful Practitioner candidate should, with suitable direction, be able to start applying the method to a real project but may not be sufficiently skilled to do this appropriately for all situations. Their individual project management expertise, complexity of the project and the support provided for the use of PRINCE2 in their work environment will all be factors that impact what the Practitioner can achieve.
