About the course

PRINCE2 is a structured, process-based approach for effective project management, which is designed to be reliable, flexible and scalable for all types of projects. Firmly established as one of the world’s most practised methods for project management, PRINCE2 enjoys wide recognition for best practice and the updated course (2017 version) retains the fundamental principles whilst shifting the emphasis to meet the evolving demands of the modern business environment. It continues to be used extensively across UK Government and public and private sector organisations globally.

Our highly regarded Practitioner and Integrated courses are structured so that the Practitioner exam is taken in the classroom directly after the training element (as per Foundation but at the end of the week). We prefer this approach to the post course online exam booking system as it ensures that the course content is fresh in the mind and enables delegates to leave having completed both the course and examination.

*BMC are proud to be maintaining a 98% pass rate for PRINCE2 Foundation and 78% for Practitioner so far in 2018!* (as at 1st October 2018)
