PRINCE2 Kathmandu

PRINCE2 Foundation course and exam
3/4/5 July 2012, Kathmandu, Nepal

Join the course and get the world’s most recognised project management qualification on your CV.


  1. PRINCE2 is a best practice project management framework that helps managers deliver projects on time and within budget.
  2. It consists of principles and processes to take you from the beginning through to the end of any project.
  3. PRINCE2 Foundation is the globally recognised Project Management qualification
  4. An intensive three-day course given by internationally experienced project management expert from the UK, followed by examination.
  5. PRINCE2 is very popular because it is a generic project management method that can be tailored to suit any size and type of project, within any organization or industry, and any culture or country.


“On average, about 70% of all IT-related projects fail to meet their objectives.”

This is just an example headline from one of many studies looking into why projects often go awry, and it says nothing about time or budget overruns.

PRINCE2 offers a tried and tested, practical rather than theoretical approach to ensuring projects stay on track. This means money is better spent and time is not wasted and lost for other projects.

Who for?



NGOs / Donors

Looking to invest in their skill set, and improve their standing on the employment market Organisations that want to be more effective in managing projects on time, on budget and more profitably. Donors who want their implementing partners to be more effective delivering projects within the budget and budget period stipulated

When and where?

The course location will be in a comfortable learning environment in central Kathmandu or Patan held over three days on 3rd, 4th, 5th July 2012. There will be a second course held beginning 30th October.


Will it work for my business?

Being a generic approach for the management of ‘business’ projects PRINCE2 can be applied in any business environment. That includes government, non-governmental organisations and commercial businesses alike – across all sectors: IT, banking, construction, retail etc.

Is it only for project managers?

No, anyone or any organisation that works in project teams will benefit greatly from this course.

Why was PRINCE introduced?

This project management methodology was introduced because of the fact that so many UK government information systems projects were failing – either running over time or budget.

PRINCE and subsequently PRINCE2 were specifically introduced to address the common causes of project failure, to save time and money and deliver the project’s intended results.

What does PRINCE2 mean?

PRINCE2 comes from PRojects IN Controlled Environments. In 1996 the methodology was re-launched (from PRINCE) as a generic project management methodology for all UK government projects, hence the 2.

Who uses PRINCE2?

Small and large, private and government organisations around the world use PRINCE2. More than 800,000 students have sat the PRINCE2 Foundation examination worldwide.

How long does the exam take?

The foundation exam is 75 questions multiple choice and lasts an hour (while the practitioner exam is 9 questions and lasts three hours).

The format of the foundation exam is:

  1. Multiple choice
  2. One hour duration
  3. 75 questions
  4. 38 correct answers required to pass
  5. Closed book

What if I fail the exam?

We cannot guarantee that you will pass the PRINCE2® examinations, but because so few of Kennedy Ryder course delegates fail, we guarantee you that you can return on the next foundation course of the same type in October without paying the tutor fees. You pay only for the examination fees, your lunch and a small administrative charge.

Do only people looking for jobs apply study for PRINCE2 exams?

No, but this is a bit ‘chicken and egg’. Many people looking to make the next step in their career do invest in PRINCE2 training and many job adverts specify PRINCE2 qualification as a requirement. This is largely because organisations have seen benefits in adopting the PRINCE2 methodology and have trained project staff internally – then it makes sense for them to hire new team members who are already trained.

How much does it cost?

The course fee is similar to all PRINCE2 courses internationally. However, there is an early bird discount for those able to book early.

Course start date Course fee Early bird date Early bird fee
3rd July 2012 NRs. 60,000 1st June 2012 NRs. 55,000

Testimonials – what others have said about the course

  1. “Although the training was held within a short period of time and with so much information to grasp within limited time, we were worried whether we could pass. However, throughout the training period, the trainer delivered clear lectures and carefully guided us through various steps, and elements of the course. Due to this, we were able to grasp the subject matter of PRINCE2 within the time and pass the test as a result. I have found the training very useful for my work and organisation” –Jigme Lama, Nepal Trust, Kathmandu, Nepal.
