PRINCE2 2009 Project Management Training-Courses Released

PRINCE2 project management training-courses undergo sweeping overhaul.

London, United Kingdom, May 29, 2009 --( Project management training and practice is about to undergo a fundamental change. PRINCE2, the most widely recognised professional project management certification in the UK and in Europe, has just undergone its first major refresh.

On 16 June 2009 the PRINCE2 2009 launch party will release three new core PRINCE2 manuals, new PRINCE2 examinations and a modern, stream-lined project management framework.

Changes will include scrapping the wordy, prescriptive detail of PRINCE2 2005, in favour of a more lightweight, generic project management method. Alongside the core PRINCE2 2009 manual will be a high-level guide aimed at members of the project board, who need a basic grounding in PRINCE2, but not the detailed understanding provided by the PRINCE2 Practitioner course.

Perhaps most exciting will be the launch of the PRINCE2 ‘Knowledge Centre’, an online PRINCE2 project management resource. The Knowledge Centre will include PRINCE2 templates, checklists and tutorials available for all PRINCE2 practitioners to download.

Knowledge Train, a leading PRINCE2 training organisation, has recently announced that the new PRINCE2 examinations will be available from the beginning of July 2009, although the old exam will still be available at student request.

Simon Buehring MD of KnowledgeTrain says: ‘Giving students the choice to decide their own PRINCE2 course and exam structure is a priority at Knowledge Train. All students will be provided with the up-to-date PRINCE2 2009 official manual (Managing Successful Projects), but both old and new exams will be available throughout the overlap period.”
