prince2 qualification and prince2 exam

On this accelerated PRINCE2® Foundation and Practitioner course, you will learn about the core applications of the PRINCE2 methodology and how PRINCE2 can be adapted to offer a structured, scalable, and tailored approach to project management within your organization.

In just 3 days, you’ll take both the Foundation and Practitioner Firebrand courses, following the newly refreshed PRINCE2® 7th Edition content to achieve your certification faster than anywhere else. If you would like to take this course during normal business hours, 9 to 5, in London or Manchester city centre, you can register here.

PRINCE2®7 addresses changes in the project management sector and adapts to evolving working practices and technologies. A further focus on sustainability and people throughout the methodology has also been added to offer better direction as the industry changes. During this combined course, you’ll also build knowledge on:

  • How to tailor the methods to the needs of your organisation and project environment
  • Further enhancements, technologies and updates introduced in PRINCE2 7th Edition and how these can be adapted to offer a more sustainable approach to project management

At the end of this course, you’ll prepare for and sit the PRINCE2® Foundation exam and the PRINCE2® Practitioner exam and achieve your certifications. Through Firebrand’s Lecture | Lab | Review methodology, you’ll get access to courseware, learn from certified instructors, and train at twice the speed, in a distraction-free environment.

What is PRINCE2?

PRINCE2® is one of the most widely used project management methodologies globally, helping organisations to run projects that reach time, budget, and quality requirements. The framework has been through many iterations since its initial launch in 1996 but as the industry changes, the guidance needs to adapt as well, which is why PRINCE2® 7 is now available.

What has changed from PRINCE2 6th Edition and the new PRINCE2®7?

To ensure the framework remains in-line with this fast-moving industry, changes have been made to the methodology.

  • Sustainability has been added as a further aspect of project performance
  • A digital and data management approach is now included
  • Elements of the content and language have been simplified to make it more accessible
  • Factors such as new technologies; the environment and climate change; ethics and changing consumer and corporate attitudes; new government, national and local regulations; new working practices and remote/hybrid working are now addressed
  • A focus on people has been integrated throughout the methodology
  • There is an increasing need for individuals to develop soft skills, including leadership, that the ‘people integrated element’ helps to address
  • This update will help to increase collaboration with cross-functional project teams, improve communications, enable a better understanding of all stakeholders needs, and will help to co-create an organisational culture where change is embedded and realised more effectively

What are the Benefits of holding PRINCE2®certification?

PRINCE2® certification is split into two separate certifications – Foundation and Practitioner.

PRINCE2®7 Foundation provides the theoretical knowledge of how to plan, manage and deliver projects from start to finish. A pass at Foundation level is pre-requisite for the Practitioner certification.

This is an ideal introduction for those looking into a career in project management, teaching a fundamental and flexible approach to project management.

PRINCE2®7 Practitioner extends the knowledge acquired at Foundation level to enable you to apply and tailor the method in a live working environment.


Foundation Learning Outcome:

  • Understand key concepts relating to Projects and PRINCE2®
  • Understand how the PRINCE2 principles underpin the PRINCE2 method
  • Understand the importance of people in successful projects
  • Understand the PRINCE2 practices and how they are applied throughout the project
  • Understand the PRINCE2 processes and how they are carried out throughout the project

Practitioner Learning Outcome:

  • Understand how to apply the PRINCE2 principles in context
  • Understand how to apply effective people management in successful projects
  • Understand how to apply and tailor relevant aspects of PRINCE2 practices in context
  • Understand how to apply (and tailor) relevent aspects of PRINCE2 processes in context
