How can I get a PRINCE2 qualification?

You will need to pass both PRINCE2 Foundation and PRINCE2 Practitioner exams to be able to gain the certificate. We do give you the option to take both courses which will take a week. You have to pass the foundation exam before taking the practitioner exam.

 Did you know that PRINCE2 is being updated?

That’s right, PRINCE2 is being updated this year! The foundation and practitioner questions will become more difficult but will have less questions. The training is now more focused on the essentials of the technique and how it can be applied within a project.

How long does the PRINCE2 qualification last for?

If you are taking the 2009 version of PRINCE2, you will be able to hold the certification for 5 years however, if you complete the PRINCE2 exam once it has been updated, you will be able to hold this for 3 years.

Should I take PRINCE2 now or wait for the updated version?

Although the updated version will have less questions, they will be more difficult. You will also have more time to hold the qualification than waiting for PRINCE2 2017 to arrive. The foundation and practitioner course only lasts for 5 days so we recommend to take the course as soon as possible. Why wait for 6 months when you can hold the qualification in a week?
