About Bundle 2: PRINCE2® & PMQ – ELCAS

PRINCE2® Foundation and Practitioner – [4.5 days]

PMQ Project Management Qualification – [5 days]

This is a cost effective solution to get two major project management qualifications within one set of ELCAS funding. If you take the PRINCE2 Foundation and Practitioner course first and pass both exams, you will not be tested on duplicate content in a reduced two hour PMQ exam. Those without a PRINCE2 Practitioner qualification will have to sit a three hour PMQ exam.


Course start dates

Consider taking the PRINCE2 course first and PMQ on completion, so you only have to take the two hour PMQ exam.

PRINCE2 (4.5 days):   13/11/17  |  11/12/17 | 29/1/18 | 19/3/18 | 14/5/18 | 25/6/18 | 13/8/18 | 17/9/18 | 29/10/18
PMQ (5 days):    04/12/17 | 5/2/18 | 9/4/18 | 18/6/18 | 24/9/18 | 3/12/18

Funding options

Lower Tier: Total cost: £3,200  |  Personal contribution: £2,200  |  ELC contribution: £1,000.00

Higher Tier: Total cost: £3,200  |  Personal contribution: £1,200  |  ELC contribution: £2,000.00

ELCs are available in two tiers. For more information about ELCAS funding please go to website: www.enhancedlearningcredits.com

Important: cost differences

Important: There maybe differences between the advertised course cost on our website, and that on the ELCAS website for the same course. A difference in cost is recognised and accepted by the resettlement team because they can’t always keep up with course changes. However, when completing your resettlement form you must inform your resettlement officer that the “Training Provider course costs have increased, and the ELCAS course costs are out of date”. They will then be able to enter the correct course cost into the system.

Portsmouth Resettlement officers: (02392) 724254 or 724570

Aim & Objectives

Course Aim

To gain two formal qualifications in Project Management for future employment.

Course Objectives

By the end of each course you will be in a position to:

  • Understand the tools and techniques covered in each course
  • Apply your understanding to scenario based questions
  • Be fully prepared to take each exam

Course Content

PRINCE2® Foundation and Practitioner

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. Our PRINCE2 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. Key topics include:

  • Business Case
  • Organisation
  • Plans
  • Progress
  • Change
  • Quality
  • Risk

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 PRINCE2 themes help to apply the PRINCE2 principles as well as a variety of objective test questions. Many tasks are designed to help you ‘link’ the four integrated elements of PRINCE2®; “principles”, “processes”, “themes” and “tailoring”.


PMQ Project Management Qualification

This is a knowledge based qualification that allows you to demonstrate your understanding of the 12 core elements of project management. By the end of the course you will be able to demonstrate an understanding of how these elements interact, and how your projects fit into your strategic and commercial environment. PMQ is a qualification recognised both nationally and internationally giving you a qualification that can be carried from one job to another or from one industry to another.

  • Organisation and project structures
  • Project life cycles
  • Contexts and environments
  • Governance and structured methodologies
  • Communication
  • Leadership
  • Planning for success
  • Scope Management
  • Schedule and resource management

    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.

    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.

    PRINCE2 Foundation and Practitioner course review

    I just wanted to write and say how much I enjoyed the PRINCE2 course last week. The whole Ipso-Facto experience was brilliant, from your prompt help in providing information to determine whether the course was going to be right for me and arranging for Tim to call me, through registration and the quality of the preparation materials sent out, to starting the course with Julia Gosse. Julia is a fantastic trainer who not only clearly has bags of experience in project and business management but is also a very highly skilled trainer. Whilst there was a huge amount to learn, she made it easy to absorb and tolerated enormous amounts of questions with patience and kindness.

    The venue was easy to get to and we definitely appreciated the surroundings including the lovely cafe for lunch and the lake. I will definitely recommend Ipso-Facto as a local training provider and will come to you first if you are running courses I am interested in for the future.

    Oh and I passed both foundation and practitioner exams! [Rebecca S]

    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]

    Microsoft Excel level 2 course review

    The Excel Level 2 course was brilliant. Having not had much experience of using Excel, I wasn’t sure how much I’d learn but Tim the course tutor was great and went at a good pace, making sure I understood as we went along. I learnt things I wouldn’t have had a clue about before including; Conditional Formatting, Range Names, Pivot Tables, IF Functions, Vlookups and a range of shortcuts to make daily tasks much quicker. I’m looking forward to putting It into practice. Would definitely recommend!  Kirsty R.
