This course covers the new qualification from AXELOS which represents an extension to PRINCE2®. The course is equally divided between practical exercises and theory as it examines how to use PRINCE2® in an agile context. The course ends with an exam that allows you to achieve PRINCE2 Agile™ Practitioner status.
- You will need to have sat and passed the Prince2 Foundation exam prior to attending this course.
