Overview

World Exclusive

Firebrand is the only training provider in the world to offer both the Foundation and Practitioner certifications in just three days. This includes sitting both exams.

There's not much that you can achieve in three days. You could walk the entire length of the Thames, or maybe count to 1,000,000 (we worked them both out). Or you could set yourself on your way to a £50,000 salary, as reported by IT Jobs Watch.

We have now certified more than 1,500 students on our PRINCE2 training course. We've listened to their feedback, and this has helped us develop this three-day course. We were challenged to make the course more 'Firebrand-like' (super fast), while maintaining all of the curriculum content from the five-day course.

The real-world case studies remain woven throughout the entire course, and we have been able to remove some exercises that were not needed in the latest curriculum. Fear not, our exclusive lecture, lab, review process remains, to ensure that you learn everything required 40% faster than anywhere else. You will gain two whole days to spend on more work or family time!

Plus, this accelerated PRINCE2 course is officially accredited by PeopleCert

Important note: From January 2023, All Global Best Practice certifications provided by Axelos will require recertification after 3 years. This will affect every certification issued from 1st January 2020 onwards and previous certification holders will be given 6 months to renew their certification. If you would like to know more, please do not hesitate to contact us to discuss your recertification requirements.
