PRINCE2® (Projects in a Controlled Environment) is a structured project management method based on experience drawn from thousands of projects and from the contributions of countless project sponsors, Project Managers, project teams, academics, trainers and consultants.

Because PRINCE2 is generic and based on proven principles, organizations adopting the method can substantially improve their organizational capability and maturity across various areas such as business change, construction, IT, mergers and acquisitions, research and product development.

What is PRINCE2®?

PRINCE2® is flexible, adaptable, and as much as a project methodology can possibly be - friendly. PRINCE2® is a method for managing projects. It enables the Project Manager to decipher who should be involved in the Project and what the associated responsibilities should be. It provides the Project Manager with a set of processes to work through and clarifies what information needs to be gathered along the way.

PRINCE2® may be similar to what you are currently using, but what it does best is pull together common names and descriptions into a structure that anyone familiar with PRINCE2® can understand, regardless of background or industry.

Is PRINCE2® aimed at any particular type of project?

PRINCE2® is designed so that it can be generally applied to all types of projects, be they Construction, Engineering, IT, Business, or Financial. In the past, PRINCE2® has been aimed at the IT Industry and it is still well used in this area. However, significant usage has recently been seen in other industries.

Is PRINCE2® suitable for Non-IT Projects?

Yes! Unlike the first version of PRINCE®, PRINCE2® is designed to be generic and can be used for projects of any nature.

Which Countries Recognize PRINCE2®?

With over a million exams already taken globally PRINCE2® is recognized as one of the world’s most popular Project Management methodologies.

What does having a PRINCE2® Qualification do for me?

  • The PRINCE2® Project Management Methodology is the de-facto standard for Project Management in the UK and is practiced worldwide. It covers the management, control and organization of a project.
  • Being qualified in PRINCE2® will not only boost your skills and confidence when managing projects but will greatly improve your employment prospects. Many organizations, both public and private, mandate the use of PRINCE2® and therefore require their employees to be competent and qualified in using this method.

What are the PRINCE2® Qualifications?

  • The PRINCE2® Foundation Qualification will teach you PRINCE2® principles, and terminology. Once qualified, you will be able to perform as an informed member of a Project Management Team using the PRINCE2® methodology within any project environment supporting PRINCE2®.
  • The PRINCE2® Practitioner Qualification will teach you how to apply PRINCE2® to the running and managing of a project within an environment supporting PRINCE2®. Once qualified, you will be able to apply and fine tune PRINCE2® to address the needs and problems of a specific project scenario. You will have gained comprehensive knowledge of the relationship between PRINCE2® principles, themes, and processes and PRINCE2® products and will understand these elements.
  • The PRINCE2® Re-Registration qualification is designed for those who have passed PRINCE2® to Practitioner level and wish to maintain their Registered Practitioner status. The PRINCE2® Examination Board has determined that all PRINCE2® Practitioners should be re-registered within 3-5 calendar years of their original Certification. However, failure to pass the Re-Registration examination after five calendar years as a Registered Practitioner will result in withdrawal of your registered status.

Are there any Prerequisites before taking the PRINCE2® Exam?

  • PRINCE2® Foundation: No prerequisite. Delegates should have some understanding of Project Management but there is no formal prerequisite for the Foundation qualification. If you require a generic Project Management course then our Introductory Certificate course may be of interest to you.
  • PRINCE2® Practitioner: Yes, there is a prerequisite. You cannot attend the PRINCE2® Practitioner Exam until you have successfully passed PRINCE2® Foundation.

Where can I sit for the exams?

  • Exams can be taken at any Accredited Training Organization (ATO).
  • Redstone is qualified and permitted to conduct exams as part of your Training.

Do I get my name on a list to prove I have done the exams?

  • Axelos runs an online register to prove that candidates have passed the Foundation and/or Practitioner Exam.
  • As an Employer, one can check the validity of an employee's PRINCE2® Certification, prior to contract or employment. However, please be aware that Candidates also have the option not to be listed.

Upon completion of the PRINCE2® Foundation Training and Exam how does one become a Practitioner?

Upon Completion of the PRINCE2 Foundation Exam, a two day upgrade course to Practitioner needs to be taken. This can be achieved either through an intensive classroom training course or through online self learning. We suggest the PRINCE2® Practitioners Training Program.

What if I would like to take the Practitioner Training right away?

In order to be eligible for the Practitioner exam you must have successfully completed the Foundation exam. This is important as the Foundation level covers all of the theory of PRINCE2®, which is essential for passing the Practitioner exam.

What are the various teaching modes for PRINCE2®?

As a PRINCE2 Accredited Training Organization (ATO), we conduct instructor led training in physical classrooms, online classrroms , or through online self learning.

What is the cost of a PRINCE2® Training Course?

Please check our classroom, online classrrom, or online self learning section for pricing details.

Please feel free to contact a member of our support team for further details.

How long are PRINCE2® qualifications valid for?

The PRINCE2® Foundation Certification does not have an expiry period.

Candidates who pass the Practitioner exam are recognized as a "PRINCE2® Registered Practitioner". Individuals remain registered for a period of 5 calendar years. To maintain registered status, Practitioners must complete and pass the PRINCE2® Re-Registration examination 3-5 calendar years after their initial/previous Practitioner Certification.

How can I promote myself as PRINCE2® qualified on my business card?

Candidates who have passed the PRINCE2® Practitioner Exam can officially state they are a “PRINCE2® Practitioner” on their Resume, Business Cards, Online Profile and anywhere they feel that it may help them professionally.

Candidates who have passed either of the Practitioner or Practitioner Re-Registration examinations within the last 5 calendar years can state they are a "PRINCE2® Registered Practitioner".

Where can I find details on all available training courses?

What is the current version of PRINCE2® being used?
