What are the benefits of a PRINCE2® qualification?

Whether you’re looking to get a PRINCE2® Project Management qualification for yourself or as an organisational requirement, this course will be beneficial to you and your company.

Benefits to an individual

PRINCE2® is the UK’s de-facto standard for project management, covering the management, control and organisation of all projects you and your company will work on. A PRINCE2® qualification not only boosts your confidence and skills when managing projects, but it will also increase your employability and increase your career prospects. PRINCE2® quickly became a prerequisite for many project management roles.

Benefits to an organisation

Many organisations implement PRINCE2® methodologies within their business and as such, encourage their employees to become fully trained and qualified in PRINCE2®. This helps to facilitate successful implementation and adoption of the PRINCE2® methodologies and improves overall project quality and efficiency.

PRINCE2® training enables all team members to use a common language and have a clear understanding of the defined processes, controls, roles and responsibilities, to facilitate successful projects every time.

Who is the PRINCE2® Foundation & Practitioner Classroom course suitable for?

This PRINCE2® package includes both Foundation and Practitioner level course materials and as such, is suitable for complete project management beginners looking to progress to Practitioner level.

We recommend taking this PRINCE2® qualification if you’re looking to gain first-class project management skills and improve your employment prospects.  

Practitioners currently holding the PRINCE2® 6th Edition certificate are not required to take the updated 2017 exams but are recommended to familiarise themselves with the new course material.
