Course description

If you want to be effective using the PRINCE2® method, a command of the theory behind it (as taught in MDP334 PRINCE2 Foundation) is essential. But theory alone is not enough; you must be ready to apply the theory to real project situations. As a natural follow-up to the theory-based Foundation course, this course is focused on applying the theory to a real-life case study. Students will work alone or in pairs as they create many of the management products needed to manage the case study project. Through this application, they will be preparing themselves not only for the Practitioner exam but also for applying the method on the projects back in their workplace.

This is the second of two certification courses on the PRINCE2 project management methodology. Its aim is to provide students with the skills needed to apply PRINCE2 theory to practical scenarios and prepare them for the Practitioner certification exam.

Course Requirements

We cover the full PRINCE2 Practitioner syllabi as defined by APMG to prepare students to take the Practitioner exam. To receive the greatest benefit from the course and be properly prepared for the exam, significant pre-course and evening work will be required of each student.

This course may be taken alone or in combination with the 3-day Foundation course.

Certification Requirements

The Practitioner Exam is administered after lunch on the second day of the course. It is a 2.5-hour "open book" objective testing format, a style of complex multiple choice examination designed to test the students’ ability to apply the PRINCE2 methodology in a working environment.

Students must achieve a score of 44 out of 80 (55%) in order to pass the exam. Students who do not achieve the minimum score may re-take the exam at a later date. Students who retake the exam will be charged an additional exam fee of $545.00, and students must schedule exam re-takes in advance at a time and location that is mutually agreed upon with CEG.

Students must have passed the PRINCE2 Foundation exam to attend this course and take the Practitioner exam.
