PRINCE2 Practitioner

I am now a fully qualified PRINCE2 Practitioner.

PRINCE2 (PRojects IN Controlled Environments) is a process-based method for effective project management. It is a de facto standard used extensively by the UK Government and is widely recognised and used in the private sector, both in the UK and internationally.

As part of my Project Manager and Design Manager role I thought it might be useful to attend the week course. This involved 5 intensive days of learning and a 1 hour foundation exam and 3 hour practitioner exam. The end result is a basis to work from for managing projects with less probability of failure.

It is a 50% pass mark and I received 248 / 360 which is 69%.

This course was provided through Sianti by Ian Proctor - one of the co-founders of Prince1.
