Ok so I have been a Project Management Assistant for just over 6 months now. I am booked in for the AMPIC next week and have the option to do PRINCE2 with QA for free with my company. Not I also do a Degree in Electrical Engineering (I know is education gone mad!) anyway I am not in between years for Engineering and can fully focus on PM for the next 4 months!

My question is that in those 4 months should I aim to complete the PRINCE2 foundation or if that enough time to get the practitioner out the way as well?

Thanks

Yes, foundation in 4 months is fine.

For Practitioner, I would recommend classroom course but you could also do F & P in 4 months time I feel.

I would recommend QA as I used them and found them very good.

I agree with Kit, four months is easily long enough to study for and pass the PRINCE2 Practitioner exam. I did mine in three weeks. I spent two weeks studying the PRINCE2 Manual and PRINCE2: A Practical Handbook by Colin Bentley. The third week I took a five day residential course with Parity, including the Foundation and Practitioner exams on the last day.

It was pretty full on so I'd clear your diary, but it's definitely achievable within your timescale.

Good luck with your studies!
