It also allows a focus on the Business Case, providing a mechanism to define what the project is trying to achieve, and the rationale and business justification for it." (Cabinet Office's manual)

Course content

The course puts the PRINCE2® concepts into practice and to prepares you for the test that leads to the PRINCE2® Practitioner certificate.

The course begins where the Foundation course left off by going into more detail on each of the themes and processes that make up the method. By the end, we will explain and demonstrate the all-important fourth element of the method, which demands that the method is always tailored to fit the project’s environment.

The topics covered include:

  • overview of PRINCE2®
  • the seven PRINCE2® themes
  • the seven PRINCE2® processes
  • tailoring PRINCE2®


Fees include lectures, lecture materials, two sample examination papers and the examination.

The course is open to anyone with a PRINCE2 ® (2009) or (2017) Foundation certificate. However, you should continue to familiarise yourself with the methods manual and study for around five hours before the first day of training. You will also need to study between training days. You cannot sit for the Practitioner exam unless you have passed the Foundation exam.

As the Practitioner course follows on the PRINCE2® Foundation course, where we introduce the method, its philosophy and its terminology, it focuses on the more intricate aspects of the method. Based on a case study, we will put the method into practice through a series of challenging questions that mirror the questions of the formal test.

The course consists of a series of classroom lectures and group exercises. The lectures introduce the method’s terminology, then we will discuss case studies to explain how to use the method in practice. We will provide supplementary learning material via the University’s online learning platform. At the end of each day we will use multiple choice questions to remind us of the day’s learning and to prepare us for the certificate examination.
