PRINCE2® Foundation & Practitioner

Delivering Efficient Projects

ABOUT THE PROGRAM

In 1989 CCTA adopted a version of a methodology known as PROMPT II (Project Resource Organisation Management Planning Techniques) to manage their projects. The CCTA later renamed it as PRINCE (PRompt II IN the CCTA Environment). Later it came to be known as PRojects IN Controlled Environment. The next update of PRINCE® arrived in 2009 and was known as PRINCE2®. PRINCE2® uses a structured approach and best processes to deliver better projects and project outputs. The PRINCE2® methodology helps the organisation to keep track of the project status at various stages continuously. PRINCE2® has two levels which a delegate can certify  - The Foundation and the Practitioner. Only after clearing the Foundation exam can the delegate sit for the Practitioner course. While PRINCE2® Foundation provides the delegates with the fundamentals of project management in a controlled environment, the PRINCE2® Practitioner course goes into further details of what is learnt in the Foundation part.  If a delegate enrols for a PRINCE2® Foundation and Practitioner course, the contents of both the courses i.e. Foundation as well as Practitioner are covered together.

PROGRAM OVERVIEW

PRINCE2® is a methodology that is used to deliver efficient project outputs within budget and time. This it does by splitting bigger modules into smaller ones and helping the professionals focus on the important parts of the projects. At MSP Training, the delegates are provided with both levels of PRINCE2® within a single course thus helping the delegates understand PRINCE2® methodology very thoroughly. During this course, the delegates understand the basic and the core concepts of this methodology in detail. Afterwards, they also learn ways to implement their learning within the organisation they work for. The current course is being provided by MSP Training as updated by AXELOS to the latest 2017 version. All the PRINCE2® courses and their respective exams follow the pattern as per PRINCE2® 2017. The course syllabus of PRINCE2® Foundation and Practitioner is also updated in accordance with the latest update of PRINCE2® by AXELOS. The course provides delegates practical knowledge about the PRINCE2® methodology so that it can be implemented in an organisation in any project environment. Almost all aspects of PRINCE2® are covered in the periphery of this PRINCE2® Foundation and Practitioner course.
