PRINCE2® - Course Structure

Our PRINCE2® course has been designed and developed to allow delegates to understand and apply PRINCE2® not just to pass the exams. We specialize with working together with organizations and individuals to understand how PRINCE2® works and how to effectively integrate it in to the existing structures and processes of the parent organisation.

Our course materials are based on the 2009 edition of, “Managing Successful Projects” and include examinations based on this manual.
Our PRINCE2® Foundation and Practitioner 5 day course follows a two part structure. The first three days of the course involve a course work book designed to allow the delegate to gain an understanding of the application of PRINCE2® and preparing for the Foundation examination. 

Following successful completion of the Foundation examination, delegates will spend one day gaining a greater depth of understanding at a practitioner level preparing for the PRINCE2® Practitioner examination, sitting this examination on the final day of the course.

PRINCE2® -Foundation & Practitioner Training Process

For all organisations we can tailor and plan any training event to maximise delegates’ potential in the PRINCE2® training environment. Following confirmation of booking and receipt of the fee ABSC Solutions Ltd will arrange to send the Pre-Course work to the delegate.

The pre-course work usually consists of:

1) Directed reading of the manual including Introduction, Principles, Introduction to Themes from the “Managing Successful Projects”
2) Depending on the delegate learning style and/or time available work through a Pre-course workbook which will be used by the delegate during the course.

The pre-course work will require around up to 20 hours of study prior to the course start date. The PRINCE2® Foundation and Practitioner training event is an intensive 5 day course that includes the PRINCE2® Foundation and Practitioner examinations within the course. Although you do not need to do all the pre-course work the more you complete before the event the less intense the course should be.
