PRINCE2® Foundation and Practitioner Bundle
At 5 Star Courses, we are delighted to deliver the most popular project management and methodology course in the UK. PRINCE2® is an established process-driven methodology that appears commonly across a variety of industries. Our combination of Foundation and Practitioner provides learners with a comprehensive overview of the PRINCE2® methodology, whilst ensuring that they are fully equipped with the relevant knowledge to pass the examinations.
The Foundation element promotes an appreciation for project risk, contingency plans, business justifications, as well as how to optimise individual project contributions, thus enhancing the learner’s project management skill and qualification repertoire.
The Practitioner element teaches learners how to manage a project over its entire lifecycle, through learning skills such as recording baselines, justifying the business case, being considerate of risks and creating progress reports. This aspect informs you of the nature expected of a PRINCE2® Project Manager role which requires individuals to be adaptive, organised, and proficient; consequently, this course will help candidates to practice and develop these qualities, in order to become an astute project manager.
