What is a PRINCE2® Practitioner qualification?

The PRINCE2® 6th Edition Practitioner is an advanced project management qualification that's designed to help you master the widely-used and globally-respected PRINCE2® project management method. 

The PRINCE2® Practitioner qualification is perfect if you've already got some experience in project management or the PRINCE2® method, or if you've previously studied the PRINCE2® Foundation qualification. 

When you complete this qualification, you'll be able to list yourself as a fully-qualified PRINCE2® Practitioner on your CV, ultimately showcasing your dedication to colleagues and employers alike. 

What are the benefits of a PRINCE2® Practitioner qualification?

The PRINCE2® Practitioner qualification will demonstrate to employers that you have strategic knowledge of how to apply PRINCE2® processes to complex projects within your organisation at an expert level. 

In this course, you’ll develop your knowledge of the 7 themes, 7 processes and 7 principles that expand on the information you learned in the Foundation course, learning to apply your new skills to real-life projects of varying complexities. 

Successfully completing this qualification leads to Registered PRINCE2® Practitioner status for three years and the right to use the accolade alongside your name on you CV and social channels.
