PRINCE2® Practitioner Certificate in Project Management version 2017


PRINCE2® (PRojects IN Controlled Environments) is a widely used project management method that navigates you through all the essentials for running a successful project. PRINCE2® is a flexible method and is aimed at all types of projects.

A successful Practitioner candidate should, with suitable direction, be able to start applying the method to a real project, but may not be sufficiently skilled to do this appropriately in all situations. Their individual project management expertise, complexity of the project and the support provided for the use of PRINCE2 in their work environment will all be factors that impact what the Practitioner can achieve.
