Frank Oliyide, FO ENterprise Ltd. - APMG PRINCE2® Foundation & Practitioner (3 days) (31/1/2014 to 2/2/2014)

"Great facilities, great tutor, I cant believe how much I learnt in three days!"
Anonymous - APMG PRINCE2® Foundation & Practitioner (3 days) (20/12/2013 to 22/12/2013)

"The staff at the training facility were fantastic, the tutor was brilliant! Given that the course (PRINCE2) could potentially be boring he made it extremely interesting. The tutor was extremely motivating, patient and obviously loves his job. All the staff at the training facility were very knowledgeable about their role therefore it was easy to get information/directed to the right sources when needed. There was abundance of healthy snacks available (free of charge) which promotes health eating; as a Public Health professional I was very impressed. The accommodation experience was not great however it was quite which made it possible to revise notes etc. I was surprised at the number of courses Firebrand offers as I did not do extensive research before attending the course; I currently have an MSc however if I was aware of those training at Firebrand I may not need to do a MSc to achieve my carrier pathway. Firebrand is BRILLIANT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! "
S.A, NHS. - APMG PRINCE2® Foundation & Practitioner (3 days) (20/12/2013 to 22/12/2013)

"Excellent course, very intense and you must do pre-course reading to understand the class lessons. I am new to this course and found it more difficult but picked up key points and exam techniques- you have to put in all the hours you are here."
Sharon Bharma, Sharon Bhamra. - APMG PRINCE2® Foundation & Practitioner (3 days) (6/1/2014 to 8/1/2014)

"Intense and friendly"
Rob Lavender, Aviation Training International Limited. - APMG PRINCE2® Foundation & Practitioner (3 days) (6/1/2014 to 8/1/2014)

PRINCE2 training

World Exclusive

Firebrand is the only training provider in the world to offer both the Foundation and Practitioner certifications in just three days. This includes sitting both exams.

There's not much that you can achieve in three days. You could walk the entire length of the Thames, or maybe count to 1,000,000 (we worked them both out). Or you could set yourself on your way to a £50,000 salary, as reported by IT Jobs Watch.

We have now certified more than 1,500 students on our PRINCE2 training course. We've listened to their feedback, and this has helped us develop this three-day course. We were challenged to make the course more 'Firebrand-like' (super fast), while maintaining all of the curriculum content from the five-day course.

The real-world case studies remain woven throughout the entire course, and we have been able to remove some exercises that were not needed in the latest curriculum. Fear not, our exclusive lecture, lab, review process remains, to ensure that you can learn everything required 40% faster than anywhere else. You will gain two whole days to spend on more work or family time!

Tried and tested

Before the PRINCE2 training course was launched, we ran a beta version. During this period we had a pass rate of 88% and a student feedback score of 91%.

Officially Accredited by APMG

When officially accrediting the course, Richard Pharro, CEO of APMG, said this:
APMG recognises the importance of training organisations continually innovating their offering to meet the changing needs of delegates. It is encouraging to see Firebrand Training has found a way to deliver the Foundation and Practitioner certification in just three days, whilst maintaining the same high quality.

Many tasks are designed to help delegates ‘link’ the four integrated elements of PRINCE2®; “principles”, “processes”, “themes” and “tailoring”.
