The official PRINCE2 manual: 'Managing Successful Projects with PRINCE2'
Five days of classroom training split into three modules:


Days 1 & 2 - Accelerated learning techniques and expert tutor guidance leading to the PRINCE2 Foundation exam

This pre-reading is interactive eLearning and is expected to take approximately two hours to complete - this is only a guide and you may wish to spend longer on this activity to help you prepare effectively.

Delegates will learn how to

PRINCE2 is aimed at project managers and aspiring project managers. It is also relevant to other key staff involved in the design, development and delivery of projects, including: Project Board members (e.g. Senior Responsible Owners), Team Managers (e.g. Product Delivery Managers), Project Assurance (e.g. Business Change Analysts), Project Support (e.g. Project and Programme Office personnel) and operational line managers/staff.
The purpose of the Foundation qualification is to confirm that a candidate has 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 pre-requisite for the Practitioner qualification.

By passing the Foundation exam, candidates should understand the structure and key terminology of the method. Specifically, the candidate should understand:

The characteristics and context of a project and the benefits of adopting PRINCE2
The purpose of the PRINCE2 roles, management products and themes
The PRINCE2 principles
The purpose, objectives and context of the PRINCE2 processes.
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.

By passing the Practitioner exam, candidates should be able to apply and understand how to tailor PRINCE2 effectively to a project within an organization environment supporting PRINCE2. Specifically candidates should:

Understand the relationships between the roles, management products, principles, themes, techniques and processes
Be able to apply the principles, themes and processes to a project
Be able to create and assess management products.
If you have not received your pre-reading material within one week of the start of your course, please contact your Account Manager or info@qa.com

Photo Identification for Examinations - You must bring photographic identification on exam days (passport, driving license or student card) as it is an examination requirement to produce it for the invigilator prior to the exam. Failure to produce a valid form of photographic identification may result in a candidate not being able to sit the exams. For any questions about what form of identification is acceptable, please contact your Account Manager or the Examination Administration team on 44 (0)0114 279 2799 or info@tts-uk.com.
