PRINCE2® is a versatile project management methodology that can be applied to projects of all types, in any industry, and is an internationally-recognised approach to project management. The PRINCE2® Practitioner level is appropriate for those with extensive involvement in projects particularly project managers, team members, business managers and project office staff. It enables both individuals and organisations to appreciate how the PRINCE2® method provides a framework for controlling and managing projects. Approved Trainers with extensive project management experience will conduct the course to ensure delegates have the best possible chance of passing the Foundation and Practitioner level exams. This is a 5-day course involving a 1-hour multiple choice PRINCE2 Foundation exam with 75 questions at the end of the 3rd day followed by a two-and-a-half hour open-book exam (using the PRINCE2® manual only) with 9 scenario-based questions at the end of the course.
