This course is accredited, and follows the syllabus published by the Information Systems Examination Board (ISEB) of the British Computer Society. It is designed to prepare existing and future IS Project Managers to take the examinations leading to the ISEB Certificate in Project Management for Information Systems, an internationally recognised and well respected qualification.

This shortened course is specifically designed for delegates who already hold the PRINCE2™ Foundation and Practitioner Certificates. The course is both intensive and practical, and provides comprehensive coverage of the skills needed to be an effective Project Manager.

Delegates attending the course on a residential basis take the written examination at the end of the course and the written examination fee is included in the course fee. Those attending a non-residential course take the written examination at a later date and also need to book the follow up Revision/Examination day (QAPJMCPEX). In either case, the final oral examination is taken at the ISEB after passing the written paper. Please note that as from 17 April 2007 the oral exam fee will also be included in the course fee.

(PRINCE2 ™ is a Trade Mark of the Office of Government Commerce)

The course is a mix of principles and practical sessions. A case study is used throughout the course to illustrate and practice the concepts and techniques.
