PRINCE2 training courses (London)
- Why PRINCE2?
- Why choose us?
If you’re looking to obtain certification in PRINCE2, you’ve come to the right place. There are two levels of PRINCE2 certification available: Foundation and Practitioner.
This is the entry level PRINCE2 qualification and is usually achieved by taking a 2.5 day classroom course or studying using a CBT product. At the end of the course you must take a 1 hour multiple choice exam containing 75 questions and must score a minimum of 35 correct answers to pass. The UK national average pass rate* for this examination is 97%.
This is the higher level PRINCE2 qualification and is usually achieved by taking a 2 day classroom course or studying using a CBT product. At the end of the course you must take a 2.5 hour multiple choice exam containing 80 questions and must score a minimum of 44 correct answers to pass. The UK national average pass rate* for this examination is 73%.
A pre-requisite for taking the Practitioner examination is that you must have already passed the Foundation examination.
The most popular way to study for the Practitioner certificate is as part of a combined Foundation & Practitioner course which lasts for 4.5 days and includes both examinations.
On passing either or both of the exams, a certificate is awarded.
*Note: We surpassed the UK national average pass rate during 2012 by achieving pass rates of 99% and 85% for Foundation and Practitioner examinations (based upon students attending our classroom courses).
Gain the PRINCE2 Foundation qualification – this course is ideal if you're already working on or would like to begin working on PRINCE2 projects. After the PRINCE2 Foundation course, progress onto the PRINCE2 Practitioner course if you are looking to become a PRINCE2 project manager.
Gain the Practitioner qualification – this course is ideal when you’re managing PRINCE2 projects and have already passed the Foundation examination. Even if you took the Foundation exam many years ago you can still take this course.
Gain both Foundation and Practitioner qualifications – this course is ideal if you’re already working or would like to begin working on PRINCE2 projects. The Practitioner qualification certifies you as a registered PRINCE2 Practitioner and is a great career booster.
Renew your Registered PRINCE2 Practitioner status. This is aimed at people who passed their Practitioner examination more than 5 years ago.
Note: If you previously studied PRINCE2 Foundation using the 2005 version of the manual, then our PRINCE2 Refresher & Practitioner course would be ideal to refresh your knowledge and help you achieve the Practitioner qualification.
If you previously studied PRINCE2 Practitioner more than 3 years ago using the 2005 manual, then our PRINCE2 Refresher & Re-registration course would be ideal to refresh your knowledge and renew your Registered PRINCE2 Practitioner status.

"Knowledge Train were advocating a more targeted approach to pre-work. I wasn't disappointed. The course was logical, progressive and run by an extremely knowledgeable and professional trainer." Peter Eates, Programme Manager, Lloyds Register
"I would like to convey my sincere thanks to you for providing such an excellent and enjoyable course for both the PRINCE2 Foundation & Practitioner. The standard of tuition provided has been very impressive and I am delighted at having passed both exams. I can highly recommend Knowledge Train, having previously attended the Introduction to Project Management one day course earlier this June. Everything was organised in a highly professional manner, yet with a friendly atmosphere geared to getting each candidate through the exam. Thanks once again!" Jeff Preston, Senior Traffic Control Engineer, Transport for London
"People at Knowledge Train set realistic expectations, have very clear objectives for their courses, and work with you to achieve those objectives. You can feel that they are invested in creating a didactic atmosphere that is both relaxing and academically strong. Success in obtaining the certification is just a natural outcome. I would be saying the same even if I had not obtained my PRINCE2 certification" Mounir Ouanaimi, Director of Admissions, Northwestern University in Qatar
"I have taken week long training courses with other training providers in the past but Knowledge Train is exceptional. The one thing that I like about Knowledge Train is the ease and pace at which the PRINCE2 course was delivered. There was no requirement to read the manual from back to back as other course providers would ask you to do. The course delivery was smooth, easy to understand, enjoyable and hardly any pressure. The course tutor was remarkable and took time to ensure that everyone had a good understanding of PRINCE2 in every way possible. I would surely recommend Knowledge Train to my peers." Trish Adeoti, Project Manager, National Policing Improvement Agency
"The PRINCE2 training course was very intensive, but the trainer made it as fun as possible. He gave a lot of guidance in the right direction, the venue was suitably located and the immediate environment was comfortable and quite conducive to studying. Knowledge Train’s PRINCE2 training is excellent value for money. I am glad I decided to go with Knowledge Train." Fola Odujinrin, Asset Development Advisor, Thurrock Council
"I found the course well structured, and the trainer extremely well informed – there was a great balance between home learning and class room based examples that led to a successful passing of the exams. I would recommend this course to anyone who wishes to do PRINCE2 – and especially anyone who feels nervous about not having done any classroom based learning for a while." Jessica Weaver, Events Production Manager, Institution of Civil Engineers
"This is just a quick note to say many thanks for your efforts in putting together such a great course. The facilities were good and the pre-course materials were well designed and prepared me well for the course. The course content has given me a better understanding of project management and the skills will be put to good use almost immediately. The course instructor was really good! He structured the content well and took us through the manual and process in a very well organised way.
There is no doubt that you will see me again in the future for the "Practitioner" bit after I have put the new skills to use and have got some more experience!
Once again, many thanks to the entire team for making this course happen." Mark Hawkins, Techology Manager, Merlin
"The course was comprehensive and the instructor was excellent, helpful and always had the answers! I enjoyed the 5 days study. Thanks Knowledge Train for the pleasant environment. The first exam was easy (Foundation) but the Practitioner one is tough and it needs real preparation. The Practitioner exam is an open book but there is no time to look in the book. I recommend the students to answer the two sample exams at least 3 times to be ready. Best" Nasser Mubarak AL-Malki, Director of IT Department, PEIE
"The PRINCE2 Foundation and Practitioner course run by Knowledge Train over 1 week is very intense, however their delivery is professional, tightly run and leaves you with the confidence that you will pass first time. I would recommend to all potential students to have a read through the training material at least 2 weeks before the course start date, as going in cold can be extremely daunting. Having familiarised yourself with the main concepts prior to the course start, it will be much easier to fly through the exams!" Danielle Cobb, Business Analyst/Project Manager
"The course was well structured and the trainer was excellent. The learning environment in terms of the facilities were ideal, and we all really benefitted from the class sizes which meant personal contact with our teacher was maximised. I would recommend Knowledge Train wholeheartedly to anyone interested in PRINCE2." Christopher Wallbridge, Senior Experience Executive, MESH Planning
