PRINCE2 (an acronym for PRojects INaControlled Environment series 2) is a de facto process-based method for effective project management. Used extensively by the UK Government, PRINCE2 is also widely recognised and used in the private sector, both in the UK and internationally. The PRINCE2 method is in the public domain, and offers non-proprietorial best practice guidance on project management.

About the PRINCE2 Foundation course
The PRINCE2 Foundation course is the first of two examination courses that you are required to pass in order to become a registered PRINCE2 Practitioner. This makes it the ideal starting point for anyone who is interested in a rewarding career in Project Management.
The Foundation certification is internationally recognised and covers the basic methodology and terminology of PRINCE2. Completing the Foundation course will ensure the ability to demonstrate an understanding of the PRINCE2 Principles, Themes, Processes and Tailoring. It will also teach the various techniques and roles that are required during a PRINCE2 Project.
Completion of the PRINCE2 Foundation course, and passing the certification examination, will result in being sufficiently prepared to work within a PRINCE2 environment and as a part of a PRINCE2 Project Management team. Successfully passing the PRINCE2 Foundation examination is also a prerequisite for writing the PRINCE2 Practitioner exam which will lead to becoming a Registered PRINCE2 Practitioner. A qualification in PRINCE2 is highly beneficial and the perfect investment for a future in the Project Management sector.
About the PRINCE2 Practitioner course
The PRINCE2 Practitioner examination is the second of two examination courses that you are required to pass in order to become a registered PRINCE2 Practitioner. Successful completion of this course will indicate that the candidate is able to act as a sufficiently informed member of a Project Management team that uses the PRINCE2 methodology.
Having already gained the basic understanding of the PRINCE2 method and terminology in the Foundation course, the PRINCE2 Practitioner course aims at providing a deeper insight into the methodology. The Practitioner course will detail the relationships between the Processes, Themes and Principles of PRINCE2 and the reasons behind them.
The PRINCE2 Practitioner course will prepare the candidate to be able to apply the method in an appropriate manner within a given set of circumstances and begin to work on projects. With the demand for PRINCE2 continuously increasing, there is no better time to gain a valuable PRINCE2 certification and enhance your employability.
