Is PRINCE2® Certification Worth Doing?

PRINCE2® Certification is a very beneficial asset for any project manager.

The PRINCE2® approach to managing projects is one of the most widely-adopted project management methodologies around the globe.

In fact, many organisations – particularly in Ireland and the UK – mandate the use of PRINCE2® for their in-house project work.

You can read more about this in our focused article, "Is PRINCE2® Worth It?".

How do I get PRINCE2® Certified?

Achieving your PRINCE2® certification is a focused, straightforward process with our streamlined approach:

  • Step 1: Attend Training

    Complete our live online PRINCE2® course over 5 days. We cover the Foundation syllabus on Days 1 – 3 and Practitioner on Days 4 & 5.

    To help you digest the information more easily, we usually have a short gap between Days 1 – 3 and Days 4 & 5. Most students use this gap to sit the Foundation exam before the Practitioner module.

  • Step 2: Study and Further Exam Preparation

    Upon completing Day 5 of our course, you will have a clear picture of how much further study is needed.

  • Step 3: Sit your Online Exams

    Your Foundation & Practitioner exams are included in your course fee.

    Once you feel ready, schedule your online exam. As we mentioned above, most students complete their Foundation exam before Days 4 & 5 of the course.

    However, we give you complete control over when you schedule your online exam.

Frequently Asked Questions

Yes, the Official Manual has been updated and there are some changes throughout. You can find more information in our guide to the changes here: Guide to Prince2 7th Edition

This PRINCE2® Foundation and Practitioner Course is available in 2 formats: Public live on-line classroom and In-company (live on-line or in person as you prefer).

Public: Live on line training that you connect to on-line from wherever you’re located.

In-company: We deliver the course to your team only. This can be in any style (in-person classroom or live on line For classroom training, we come to your location.

You can access our live virtual courses online from anywhere in the world. We provide you with a link to join the classroom 2-3 days before the training starts.

This course takes place over 5 days. Each day runs from 9.30am – 5.00pm.

We include a gap between Days 1 - 3 and Days 4 & 5. We will give you a listing of all dates when you get in touch to book your place.

Here is our effective format for PRINCE2® certification:

  • Our course is 5 days in length. You will complete both the Foundation and Practitioner level exams during classroom training. Virtual training students will schedule and sit their exams online outside of training days.

  • Note: You will need to allow time for study each evening during training.

  • Once you have passed your exams, you will receive your PRINCE2® certification from PeopleCert, on behalf of AXELOS.

Using our format, it is possible to get PRINCE2® certified within 2 weeks. This depends on the time you allocate for study and on your exam slot.

This course has an exam preparation focus, meaning that it is very intensive and theoretical in style.

Although you will certainly gain knowledge and understanding of the PRINCE2® framework, you will spend a high proportion of time during training concentrating on exam preparation.

You must renew your certifications every 3 years. You can maintain your certification in one of the following 3 ways:

  • 1. retake its exam before the renewal date.
  • 2. collect and log professional development points via PeopleCert’s MyAxelos membership platform.
  • 3. take further PeopleCert certifications before the renewal date.

There are 2 things we ensure all delegates know before the course begins:

  1. You will need to allow time for study every evening during training. With this in mind, we recommend keeping other commitments during the course to a minimum where possible.

  2. This is an exam preparation course. As such, it is quite intensive and does not incorporate a lot of practical work.

There are no official experience requirements set out by PeopleCert for those working towards PRINCE2® Foundation and Practitioner certifications.

Although we sometimes have participants with no project management experience, we have found that some familiarity with a project management environment is helpful.

Exams are taken outside of training hours.

Most students sit their Foundation exam in the gap between Days 1 - 3 and Days 4 & 5. We strongly recommend this approach. Following training, you'll schedule and sit your online Practitioner exam when ready.

There are two ways to secure your place on one of our next PRINCE2® dates.
