Description

So What Exactly is PRINCE2?

Despite PRINCE2 being the “Gold Standard” Project Management methodology qualification, many still aren’t actually clear on what it is.

PRINCE2 is a method for managing projects which is flexible, adaptable and friendly. If you are already managing projects then it may be similar to what you currently use, but what it does best is pull together common names and descriptions into a structure that anyone familiar with PRINCE2 can understand, regardless of background and industry.

It can be applied to all sorts of projects, from the very small to the very large. Even projects lasting only a few days will benefit from selective application of its guidelines. The key to success with PRINCE2 is that it can be adapted for all project types regardless of industry and marketplace.

Please see below exactly what is covered on the course.

Testimonials from Google Reviews

Absolutely brilliant. My company asked me to find PRINCE2 training for us in Nottingham. I called several providers but Infero was by far the cheapest. This made me a little skeptical initially around quality but the guy who took the booking was great and was very patient with my questions! I'd done PRINCE2 10 years ago so a lot has changed. Sue who took the course was incredible. Clearly a very experienced trainer and I can see why her pass rate is so high! If you're thinking of doing PRINCE2 in the east midlands area you'd be crazy to go anywhere else.

Highly Recommended!

I completed the Prince2 Foundation and Practitioner Course and found Infero Training to be thoroughly professional from the initial booking through to the course completion and exam.

Infero runs these courses in a small and friendly environment that is perfect for anyone wishing to be successful in the final exams.
On my course, Suada took us through the whole syllabus in a clear and concise way that gave me the right platform to succeed in the exams.
Not only did I pass both exams, it gave me the exact qualification needed to secure a new job.


If you are wanting a great learning environment with supportive staff, look no further than Infero. I can't thank Suada enough for her support through the Course and assisting me with my career change.

Andy McCulloch

I attended the Prince 2 Foundation Course for two and a half days where Su was the instructor. She made the course easy to digest and made it very interactive. It wasn't a course where the information is just given to you and you are expected to remember it all. You undertake practice questions throughout the course so that you are familiar with the exam style questions by the time you undertake the exam on the third day. Su was very good at explaining things and was very patient and enthusiastic. I would definitely recommend booking a course through Infero again in the future :)

FAQs

What does study method mean?

Study method describes the format in which the course will be delivered. At reed.co.uk courses are delivered in a number of ways, including online courses, where the course content can be accessed online remotely, and classroom courses, where courses are delivered in person at a classroom venue.

CPD stands for Continuing Professional Development. If you work in certain professions or for certain companies, your employer may require you to complete a number of CPD hours or points, per year. You can find a range of CPD courses on reed.co.uk, many of which can be completed online.

What is a ‘regulated qualification’?

A regulated qualification is delivered by a learning institution which is regulated by a government body. In England, the government body which regulates courses is Ofqual. Ofqual regulated qualifications sit on the Regulated Qualifications Framework (RQF), which can help students understand how different qualifications in different fields compare to each other. The framework also helps students to understand what qualifications they need to progress towards a higher learning goal, such as a university degree or equivalent higher education award.

What is an ‘endorsed’ course?

An endorsed course is a skills based course which has been checked over and approved by an independent awarding body. Endorsed courses are not regulated so do not result in a qualification - however, the student can usually purchase a certificate showing the awarding body’s logo if they wish. Certain awarding bodies - such as ABC Awards and TQUK - have developed endorsement schemes as a way to help students select the best skills based courses for them.
