PRINCE2 Agile certification
More and more projects are agile. There are now hundreds of thousands of people trained in agile development methods such as SCRUM or Kanban. However, these agile methods although flexible and able to respond quickly to change do not provide project management processes or governance.
PRINCE2, the world’s most popular project management methodology does provide such governance. PRINCE2’s controls enable organizations to keep control over projects, enabling them to deliver the benefits expected. Until now, there was no guidance on how to merge the flexibility of agile with the structure and control of PRINCE2.
PRINCE2 Agile provides such guidance and you can now get training in this brand new certification.
There’s only one level of PRINCE2 Agile certification – the Practitioner.
PRINCE2 Agile Practitioner certification
You can obtain your PRINCE2 Agile Practitioner certification by taking a 3 day PRINCE2 Agile training course at our London venue. In order to sit the PRINCE Agile examination, you must already have passed the PRINCE2 Foundation examination.
The training comes with the PRINCE2 Agile Practitioner exam. The course is accredited by PEOPLECERT and therefore complies with the syllabus which is written by AXELOS, the owners of PRINCE2 Agile.
Who is this for?
There’s a number of people who would benefit from PRINCE2 Agile training:
- Existing project managers who need to manage agile projects
- Development team members who are already trained in agile methods such as SCRUM, but who want to gain an understanding about how to manage their agile projects
- PRINCE2 Foundation qualification holders who want to complement their existing knowledge in order to better manage agile projects
By the end of the PRINCE2 Agile course, you’ll have gained an understanding of how to merge PRINCE2 with agile methods and be able to apply such knowledge to simple agile projects.
PRINCE2 Agile Practitioner exam
All of our PRINCE2 Agile training courses come with a 2.5 hour PRINCE2 Agile Practitioner exam. For students taking our PRINCE2 Agile courses the pass rate for this exam is 100%. You’ll get your results straightaway after the exam.
Prior to being accepted onto our PRINCE2 Agile course, you must show that you have already passed the PRINCE2 Foundation exam because this is a pre-requisite for obtaining the PRINCE2 Agile Practitioner certification.

I use a wheelchair. Can I get access to an exam venue?

Your PRINCE2 Agile exam script is scanned and emailed to the accreditation body. Normally you will receive your results within a few hours.
I have trouble writing for long periods due to a medical condition. What can I do?
Talk to us beforehand about any existing medical condition which you may have. We can contact the accreditation body to ask their advice on whether extra time can be given in the exam. For example, if you are dyslexic and have a certificate from a doctor, extra exam time can be given. It’s always best to discuss this with us before you book your course.

What kind of person attends your PRINCE2 Agile training?
Every course is different. We get people coming who work in many different types of companies, industries and roles. We get an above average number of students from IT and the creative industries, probably because these people are often familiar with agile methods such as SCRUM.
In today’s economy, we often get students who are out of work who want to develop new skills for their CV. On a typical classroom course, there’s usually a good mix of men and women, and being in London, it’s not unusual to have one or two students who have travelled from abroad to one of our PRINCE2 Agile courses.

All Agile PRINCE2 courses start at 9:30am each morning and finish at 5:00pm.
How long do courses last for?

When will I get my certificate?
If you pass the PRINCE2 Agile exam your certificate will be available for download about 3 working days from the date of your exam.
I have no experience of agile methods. Is this course the right course for me?
Yes. You definitely need to have passed the PRINCE2 Foundation exam before you attend the PRINCE2 Agile course. Other than that, if you already have agile experience such as SCRUM, then a lot of the topics discussed on the course will already be familiar to you.
The course covers the core agile techniques so even without agile experience you’ll learn about them and learn how they can be combined with PRINCE2.
I have no experience of project management. Is this course the right course for me?
Possibly. You definitely need to have passed the PRINCE2 Foundation exam before you attend the PRINCE2 Agile course. Other than that, if you already have project management experience then the course will be more relevant than if you don’t have such experience.
Are there any prerequisites for the course?
Yes – you must have already passed the PRINCE2 Foundation exam prior to sitting the PRINCE2 Agile Practitioner exam.
Will this qualification help me to get a job?
PRINCE2 Agile Practitioner is a new qualification. It was only launched in the middle of 2015. So far, there aren’t that many people who have gained this certification. So, having the PRINCE2 Agile Practitioner certification on your CV will set you apart from most other candidates when applying for a role.
Of course, your work experience and other skills such as soft skills will also be important to employers.
Are there any example exam questions?
Yes – as part of your pre-course study and homework you will be given access to 2 full sample PRINCE2 Agile Practitioner exam papers.
What type of projects can PRINCE2 Agile be used on?
Any type of agile project in any industry.
