Why you should take the PRINCE2 course


By 

PRINCE2 (PRojects IN Controlled Environments) is a project management methodology developed and used extensively by the UK Government. PRINCE2 is widely recognised and used in the private sector, both in the UK and internationally.

Firebrand is the only training provider in the world to offer both the Foundation and Practitioner certifications in just three days. Why should you take the PRINCE2 course? Here are the reasons:

Get top Project Management skills

With your PRINCE2 certification you’ll be confident and successful in managing projects within the workforce. Using PRINCE2 in your projects will give you common systems and procedures, making coordination easier. It provides you with greater control of resources, and the ability to manage business and project risk more effectively. You’ll make fewer mistakes, learn from those that you do make, and therefore save money and effort.

Improve your job prospects

A PRINCE2 qualification is a great addition to your CV. PRINCE2 is recognised as a world-class international product and is the standard method for project management. Many companies across the world require staff to be PRINCE2 certified, and thus your certification will definitely give you the edge over the competition.

What implementing PRINCE2 gives you

PRINCE2 provides your organisation’s projects:
  • A common and consistent approach
  • A controlled and organised start, progress and close
  • Flexible decision points
  • Regular reviews of progress against plan
  • Management control of any deviations from the plan
  • The involvement of management and stakeholders at the right time and place during the project
  • Clear communication channels between the project team, management, and the rest of the organisation
  • A route to increasing the project management skills and competences of the organisation's staff at all levels
