PRINCE2 Project Management - Foundation & Practitioner Qualifications

I’ve just returned from a hectic, manic, information overloaded (and any other words attached!) week of PRINCE2 Foundation & Practitioner Training/Course.

Whilst it was intense, it was extremely valuable as the knowledge gained regarding PRINCE2 practices and other key resources will become invaluable if used appropriately and effectively.

I passed the Foundation mid-week which was fantastic but the wait is now on for the Practitioner results which could take up to 5 weeks… wish me luck!

UPDATE (24.10.2012):

I’ve just found out that I passed the Practitioner Exam… so I’m now a qualified PRINCE2 Practitioner!
