About PRINCE2 ® Foundation, Practitioner v2017

PRINCE2 training courses Southampton

PRINCE2 ® Project Management

PRINCE2 is widely considered the leading project management method. Many companies and governmental organisations are using the method to deliver change and develop new products or services. PRINCE2 provides a tried and tested method from which organisations and their project team can benefit.

The latest update to version 2017 will help organisations understand how the fundamental principles of PRINCE2 provide the basis of good project management. It also emphasizes how the method can be tailored to give an appropriate fit to a multitude of project sizes, types and environments.

Many projects today involve collaboration across organisational or even national boundaries. PRINCE2 provides a universal language that unites the project team with external suppliers and colleagues in other countries. In such environments a common understanding of what the project is trying to achieve, why the project is being undertaken and the benefits to be delivered, who is responsible for doing what, and what the project timescales are, are crucial to project success.

Target Audience

Organisations and individuals requiring a controlled approach to managing projects. Suitable for project managers, team managers, project support and assurance staff, and managers from any discipline, and is particularly aimed at people who are responsible for managing projects. The PRINCE2 ® method is flexible and adaptable for any type and size of project, and offers an excellent management foundation for any member of staff.

Course approach

The PRINCE2 Practitioner course is a mixture of input and practical sessions, delivered by an APM Group approved trainer with practical experience of project management. Our highly acclaimed online event preparation is available to everyone attending this event. Delegates should spend approximately 10 hours studying this pre-course material in order to be well prepared for the course. Due to the intense nature of this course, delegates should plan to commit approximately 1 hour each evening during the course for study and review.

Our flexible approach to the management of the course means that delegates can attend the whole 4.5 day  Foundation & Practitioner event or attend the 3 day Foundation event only and return at a later date to complete the Practitioner elements and exam if they so wish.

Many tasks are designed to help delegates ‘link’ the four integrated elements of PRINCE2®; “principles”, “processes”, “themes” and “tailoring”.

    APM Project Management Qualification (PMQ) course review

    I completed the PMQ course through IPSO FACTO and they were a pleasure to work with from the moment I first made an enquiry. Every piece of course administration was made simple for me and the classroom facilities were just perfect. The course instructor was professional, knew the subject very well and focused our learning in a practical way to help put it into perspective. Overall, a very professional experience and I would recommend IPSO FACTO as a quality training company. Thank you. [Scott Sellars]

    PRINCE2 Foundation and Practitioner course review

    I attended the project management qualification in December (having already attended the PRINCE2 course in November). Although a challenging subject, I found that the training was engaging because there was adequate time to not only listen but to also give examples and hear examples from other individuals from the class. This aids to help people’s understanding or misunderstanding in some cases and help breakdown the subject into easier chunks. It also helps that IPSO FACTO have in my opinion some of the most experienced instructors in the country, meaning that if you just don’t get something they bring their personal experience into the story to help your understanding.

    APM PFQ (Introductory Certificate) course review

    The PFQ (APM IC) was for me a good introduction into understanding the ‘Project Management’ world better. It helped me to identify areas and processes that I am not yet familiar with but I now have more confidence in tackling. Passing this course has further confirmed that I do want to go on to study for the APMP qualification. Chelsea B.
