Course details

This 2-day training course is designed to help you achieve the PRINCE2 Practitioner qualification, which is widely regarded as essential for managing projects using PRINCE2.

You will be able to undertake this course if you have either passed the PRINCE2 Foundation exam, or have completed the PMP, CAPM, or one of the IPMA Levels A, B, C or D. Proof of passing any of these qualifications will be required in the form of a certificate.

Our courses are designed and taught to give you the greatest chance of passing your exams. At the end of the course you will take your PRINCE2 Practitioner examination. By studying with us, you can have the best chance of passing your exam. That’s because our PRINCE2 Practitioner exam pass rate since 2012 has averaged 83%, 10% higher than the average.

We also like to save you time. Our exclusive online pre-course study materials will help you to re-familiarise yourself with PRINCE2 before you start the course. We’ve pinpointed the essential aspects of the PRINCE2 syllabus in the preparation materials, with the major advantage that you can prepare for the course in just 3-4 hours, instead of the 16+ hours required by many other training providers.

Knowledge Train is based in Tokyo and London and is a PRINCE2 Accredited Training Organisation, which means you can be confident that our courses conform to the highest standards of project management training.

Why this qualification?

The PRINCE2 Practitioner qualification is the next highest level after the PRINCE2 Foundation qualification. The PRINCE2 Foundation qualification enables you to work as an informed member of a project team, whereas the Practitioner shows you can apply PRINCE2 to simple projects.

If you are looking to manage projects rather than support them, then the PRINCE2 Practitioner course is for you.

Who is this for?

The PRINCE2 Practitioner qualification is your ideal starting point to begin managing your projects effectively. If you have not yet taken the PRINCE2 Foundation course, a more suitable option would be the combined Foundation & Practitioner course

If your career goals differ from the ones listed please feel free to discuss your goals with our specialist advisors on +81 (0)3-4510-7884. They can advise you on choosing a course which best suits your career.

I currently work as a member of a project team and want to start managing them

If you have passed your PRINCE2 Foundation exam previously, you have most likely been able to practice PRINCE2 within your project. The PRINCE2 Practitioner qualification will qualify you as a registered PRINCE2 Practitioner which shows that you are able to manage simple projects using PRINCE2.

I am unemployed and want to put PRINCE2 on my CV

If you are currently seeking a job in project management, then becoming PRINCE2 certified will instantly increase your chances of employment. You will find that most project manager job specifications expect you to be a full PRINCE2 Practitioner, rather than just having completed the Foundation course.

I want to change career and work in project management

If you are in the process of changing your career to work in project management, the PRINCE2 Practitioner qualification is the essential starting point. We have trained beginners who are from unrelated backgrounds such as consultancy, military, merchandising and even nursing; all of which may or may not have included elements of project work.

I want to organize PRINCE2 Practitioner training for my colleagues

If your organization wants to train its staff in the world’s most popular project management methodology, then we can help. We’ve been delivering in-house PRINCE2 training for over 10 years. Our knowledgeable and dedicated trainers can help your staff get quickly up to speed with PRINCE2 and help them gain professional PRINCE2 Practitioner certification as well.

Overall was very enjoyable

Very intense, but overall was very enjoyable. I completed the Foundation exam a year ago, and returned to Knowledge Train for the Practitioner course because the trainers are excellent. We received very good pre-course study and course materials too.

Excellent trainer

Really good. Gave me the confidence needed to pass the exam. The trainer's tips were very useful. The course materials were good. Not too demanding, but provides enough guidance to prepare for the exam. We had an excellent trainer with a very good understanding of the exam and of what is required to pass. Very happy I chose this course.

What our students say

"Very rarely do we find dedicated and genuinely interested trainers like Simon."
- Gautam Agrawal, Senior Consultant, Infosys Technologies Limited

"A great course that is very good value for money. The excellent teaching and location provided a comfortable and relaxed environment within which to learn and share ideas with other people involved in project management."
- Brian Makepeace, Project Manager - UEL

"You can feel that they are invested in creating a didactic atmosphere that is both relaxing and academically strong. Success in obtaining the certification is just a natural outcome. I would be saying the same even if I had not obtained my PRINCE2 Practitioner certification."
- Mounir Ouanaimi - Northwestern University in Qatar

"Although there is a lot to digest during the course, the teacher was outstanding at effectively informing us of the main subject points. He was also good at explaining new terms and concepts referring to everyday situations. I will definitely be recommending this school to my friends and colleagues."
- Kie Yoshida, Mobell Communications Ltd

"The whole package was professional from start to the finish, and the tutor was most helpful in every way. To get the best out of this course, you MUST complete the pre-class lessons prior to the classroom course and take the sample questions on Knowledge Train's e-learning platform."
- Yemmi Agbebi, MBA

"I thought the course was very well run, despite the fact that the course is packed of information. I had plenty of time to learn and revise as instructed by the tutor. The tutor is very knowledgeable and engaging. Thank you!"
