ALC's PRINCE2 Practitioner course is based on the new 2017 syllabus.

The PRINCE2® Practitioner Certificate course is designed for anyone who already has the PRINCE2 Foundation certificate and who wants to upgrade their knowledge and certification to Practitioner level. The course focuses strongly on workshops, exercises and case studies so that you understand how to put the theory into practice.

The course assumes that you have kept your PRINCE2 Foundation knowledge reasonably fresh, either through application in the workplace or else through revision of the course textbook.

What if you did Foundation in the previous PRINCE2 version?

ALC's PRINCE2 course is based on the new 2017 syllabus. PRINCE2 2017 is a significant and important revision that has been enthusiastically welcomed by the overwhelming majority. There are however a number of quite significant changes, all for the better, in the new syllabus. If you do not understand them you will be at a disadvantage in the Practitioner exam.

If you have done Foundation at the previous syllabus (PRINCE2 2009), or if quite a bit of time has elapsed since you did Foundation, then we highly recommend that you re-sit the Foundation course again.

If you did your Foundation with ALC then please contact us to discuss options.
