About this Course

Course code QAP2UBVBL

Prior to undertaking your course, you need to provide evidence that you satisfy the prerequisite of holding the 2009 version of the PRINCE2 Foundation qualification or one of the other suitable certifications listed on the AXELOS website (for example, PMI CAPM and PMP or an IPMA Level A-D qualification).

You will be provided with a copy of the official PRINCE2 2017 manual, ‘Managing Successful Projects with PRINCE2’. Details of changes between PRINCE2:2009 and PRINCE2:2017 can be found on the AXELOS website.

PRINCE2 is one of the world’s most widely used project management methods. Based on best-practice, the method can be applied to any project irrespective of its size, industry sector, geographic location or culture. This course provides a definitive understanding of PRINCE2. We cover its four integrated components – the principles, themes, processes and project environment. We also look at management roles required in a PRINCE2 project and what management products must be created to ensure the project is delivered in a coordinated, consistent and transparent manner.

Using elements from QA’s ‘Performance Based Learning’ approach, we help you to not only know PRINCE2, but also apply and tailor it for your projects. The course has been designed by award winning instructional designers to ensure that it provides an interactive and engaging introduction to PRINCE2. Our experienced PRINCE2 experts explain the method through a wide range of exercises, case-study application, learning ‘games’ and practice exam questions.

QA video-based learning and associated exams are active for a period of 12 months after purchase. You are required to sit your exams within this timeframe.
