Respected both in the UK and internationally, PRINCE2® (PRojects IN Controlled Environments) is a Government recognised, industry standard project management qualification, that can help you to move up the career ladder and take on larger scale project management roles.

Course detail

At Coventry University the Foundation and Practitioner levels are taken together as one course. The PRINCE2® Foundation covers the principles and terminology of PRINCE2®. The practitioner course is the top level of PRINCE2® qualifications available. The course covers all of the skills and knowledge needed to become a practitioner and successful completion of the course will give you registered PRINCE2® practitioner status. You will need to pass an exam to gain the qualifications from these courses. All delegates are required to do pre course reading of around 10 hours and between 2-3 hours after sessions.

The course offered at Coventry University will allow you to obtain all qualifications up to and including PRINCE2® Practitioner status, which will allow you to apply PRINCE2® to the running and management of a project. The course can also be taken as a component of our postgraduate Project Management courses or as a stand-alone course.
