Prince2 qualification in five days as Firebrand Training cuts

The certification time for Prince2 qualification has been significantly reduced by accelerated learning expert Firebrand Training, making it the fastest Prince2 course in Europe. There are several extra courses planned due to high demand over the summer to gain Prince2 qualification.

The IT project management course now takes just five days for both Foundation and Practitioner levels. This consolidation has meant Firebrand Training has been able to add several more Prince2 courses to its already packed schedule this summer to cope with demand.

A Prince2 qualification is a valuable, industry-recognised credential that signifies a proven level of knowledge and ability. At Firebrand Training students learn the skills necessary to make them stand out from the competition.

Qualified Prince2 project managers can expect to earn on average 28 per cent more than non-qualified professionals.

“This Prince2 course had proved popular with employees wanting to step up the career ladder over the summer,” said Rob Chapman, CEO and co-founder of Firebrand Training. “The ability to complete this course in one working week makes it very attractive to employees and employers alike.”

“With the UK soon to be entering into a skills crisis, the quicker employees can get qualified and back to work, the better. The fact that this course has been so popular is an indication that times might be changing,” he continued.

About PRINCE2 Program:

PRINCE2 was originally developed by the Central Computer and Telecommunications Agency (CCTA) now part of the Office of Government Commerce (OGC) in 1989 as a UK Government standard for IT project management.

The Firebrand Training Accelerated Learning course:

• Helps students grasp complex project management concepts more easily by identifying and catering to individual student learning styles through a mixed visual, auditory and kinaesthetic-tactual delivery system

• Enhances retention by employing accelerated learning techniques focused on committing information to long-term memory

• Is not like other bootcamps where just the exams are taught. In fact our PRINCE2 training courses is delivers more case based scenarios than traditional training or boot camps

About Firebrand Training (www.firebrandtraining.co.uk)

Firebrand Training is challenging the way in which professional training is delivered.

Firebrand Training, formally known as The Training Camp, has pioneered Accelerated Learning courses for busy IT professionals. The organisation’s innovative approach to course delivery has led to its status as the Institute of IT Training’s “IT Training Company of the Year” for the three years – something no other IT Training company has achieved.

Students are totally immersed in the subject matter, receiving an average of 12 hours intense tuition per day at a residential training site. Subject experts implement a range of teaching methodologies designed to fit with how we best understand and retain information during different periods in the day.

Accelerated Learning is an attractive proposition for contractors, whose time commands very high premiums, and employers who need to minimise staff absence. Firebrand Training has an above average pass rate of 85% - confounding critics’ claims that Accelerated Learning fails to produce results.

Firebrand Training was founded by Robert Chapman and Stefano Capaldo in Summer 2001 as The Training Camp. Stefano was a former student in the US and rated the company’s approach so highly that he decided to launch a programme of courses in the UK.

The organisation has since been recognised by Microsoft as a Gold Partner for Learning Solutions (MCPLS) and over 12,000 students have been trained in the UK to date. The success of the company enabled the management team to relaunch as Firebrand Training, which is focused on delivering training courses specifically designed for a European market.

Firebrand Training offers a range of courses covering all major vendors such as Microsoft, Cisco, Oracle, Sun, and Novell, as well as specialist certifications in the areas of security, business intelligence, project and business process management.
