This PRINCE2® Bootcamp: Foundation & Practitioner (AXELOS®/APMG) Course & Certifications is a 5-day, interactive, classroom-based learning experience. The bootcamp comprises a 3-day Foundation Module and 2-day Practitioner Preparation Module, which can be taken together or separately. Through practice exams, workshops and overnight study, you will gain the knowledge and skills required to take the Foundation Exam on Day 3 and then the Practitioner Exam on Day 5 of the program. The purpose of the session is to ensure that the candidate has achieved sufficient understanding of how to apply and tailor PRINCE2® in a real life situation. A successful Practitioner candidate should, with suitable direction, be able to start applying the method to a real project but may not be sufficiently skilled to do this appropriately for all situations. Their individual project management expertise, complexity of the project and the support provided for the use of PRINCE2® in their work environment will all be factors that impact what the Practitioner can achieve.
