AXELOS PRINCE2® 2009 - Foundation & Practitioner

- Only 3 Days
prince2 qualification and prince2 exam

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

Other accelerated training providers rely heavily on lecture and independent self-testing and study.

Effective technical instruction must be highly varied and interactive to keep attention levels high, promote camaraderie and teamwork between the students and instructor, and solidify knowledge through hands-on learning.

Firebrand Training provides instruction to meet every learning need:

  • Intensive group instruction
  • One-on-one instruction attention
  • Hands-on labs
  • Lab partner and group exercises
  • Question and answer drills
  • Independent study

This information has been provided as a helpful tool for candidates considering training. Courses that include certification come with a Certification Guarantee. Pass first time or train again for free (just pay for accommodation, exams and incidental costs). We do not make any guarantees about personal successes or benefits of obtaining certification. Benefits of certification determined through studies do not guarantee any particular personal successes.

You’ll cover the following content:

Structured Approach to Managing Projects

  • Setting the scene for a structured approach to managing all projects; project success criteria; the model of the PRINCE2® method including the integrated elements of principles, processes, themes and tailoring.

The Process-based Approach

  • PRINCE2 focuses on key processes needed for successful project management which must be present, but may be ‘tailored’ to reflect the complexity, scope and risks faced by the project. The Process Model will be used to help delegates understand and appreciate what should be done to manage each project, why it should be done and when in the project lifecycle.

Business Case

  • What is a Business Case; Outcomes, Outputs, Benefits and Dis-benefits; Developing, Verifying and Maintaining the Business Case; Contents of the Business Case; Confirming the benefits and the Benefits Review Plan; Business Case Responsibilities.


  • Project Management Team Structure and the Project Board, Project Assurance, Project Manager, Team Manager, Change Authority and Project Support roles & responsibilities. Stakeholder management; Communication Management Strategy; Organization Responsibilities.


  • Levels and content of Plans; Exception Plans; Product-based approach to planning – Project Product Description, Product Breakdown Structure, Product Description, Product Flow Diagram; the planning steps; Plans Responsibilities.


  • Management and Technical Stages. Tolerance and Raising Exceptions. Project Board and Project Manager Controls for Reviewing and Reporting Progress; Baselines for Control; Capturing and Reporting Lessons; Event-driven and time-driven controls; Progress Responsibilities.


  • Issue and Change Control procedure; Configuration Management procedure; Configuration Management Strategy; Baselining, handling changes to, tracking and protecting products. Change Authority and Change Budget; Change Responsibilities.


  • Quality Defined, The Quality Audit Trial; Quality; Acceptance Criteria, Quality Criteria, Quality Management Strategy, Quality Assurance, Quality Controls and Quality Review technique; Quality Responsibilities.


  • What is Risk and Risk Management; Risk Management in Projects; Risk Management Strategy; Risk Management Procedure; Risk Budget; Risk Responsibilities.

Practical Work

  • Specially written scenarios and comprehensive sets of related tasks help provide a practical application of the method. Practical work includes creating process models, completing tasks related to specific elements of the method such as how the themes help to apply the principles as well as a variety of objective test questions. Many tasks are designed to help delegates ‘link’ the four integrated elements of PRINCE2®; “principles”, “processes”, “themes” and “tailoring”.

Firebrand goes digital

We’re currently migrating from printed to digital courseware. Some courseware is already available in digital, while other books remain in printed form. To find out if this course is digital, call us on 080 80 800 888.

There are several benefits of easy-to-use digital courseware: downloads are immediate, and you’ll always have your courseware available wherever you are. You won’t need to wait for a printed book to be delivered before you start learning – and it’s better for the environment.

Considering a Microsoft course? Always have the most up-to-date Microsoft digital courseware with ‘Fresh Editions’. This gives you access to all versions of digital courseware – you’ll receive updates and revisions of your textbook, at no charge, for the life of that course.
