Who Attends this PRINCE2® Foundation and Practitioner Course?

PRINCE2® certification is a strong addition to your project management portfolio of qualifications and capabilities. Many organisations use the PRINCE2® methodology for all project work, and require their project managers to understand and be certified in PRINCE2®. We recommend this course for project managers in all industries, at all stages of their career.

PRINCE2® Manual

You will need to purchase a copy of the official Axelos manual, “Managing Successful Projects with PRINCE2® – 2017 edition in advance of training. This is the only additional material you will need to source, and we do not include it so that you can choose from an e-book or physical textbook.

Exams & Cert

Important Information About Your Exams & Certifications

During this course, you will sit 2 exams leading to PRINCE2® Certifications. Here is some key information about preparing to pass these exams, and about the certifications.

Passing Your PRINCE2® Exams

This PRINCE2® Foundation and Practitioner course is exam preparation focused, meaning that every element of training is geared towards supporting you in your exam process.

  • We provide you with pre-course familiarisation reading in advance of training. It is very important that you complete this reading before you attend, as it may impact upon your success in the exams.
  • Pre-course reading generally takes between 5 and 6 hours. This is only a guideline as the reading time varies from person to person.
  • During training, you will need to set aside 2 – 3 hours for study each evening. Again, this is a guideline and you may find that you require a little more or less. To allow for this, we recommend that you keep your evenings during the course as clear of other commitments as possible.
  • Although initially this approach may seem daunting, it’s the most effective way to absorb the material and pass your exams.

Your PRINCE2® Certifications

PRINCE2® Foundation

  • This certification will never expire or need to be renewed.
  • You will take the PRINCE2® Foundation exam in the afternoon on Day 3 of training.
  • You must pass the Foundation exam to be eligible to progress to Practitioner level.

PRINCE2® Practitioner

  • This certification requires renewal every 3 years.
  • You can renew your Practitioner certification either via Axelos membership or re-sitting the PRINCE2® Practitioner exam.
  • You will sit the PRINCE2® Practitioner exam in the afternoon on Day 5 of training.
