PRINCE2® training courses provide a leading qualification in project management which is fast becoming a prerequisite when applying for a project management role. The Prince2 Practitioner qualification is gained by taking the 5 day combined Prince2 Foundation (3days) and the Prince2 Practitioner (2 day) training course. Options to take all the course in one 5 day block or to split the course into two blocks are available. There is an amount of pre-read required along with work to be carried out every night after the course. Therefore candidates need to be fully committed to study but the rewards are evident in the growing recognition of Prince2 being a leading project management qualification. The most amazing thing is the value for money these courses now provide as they generally cost 50% less than two or three years ago. Prince2 Prices
