PRINCE2 Practitioner certification is a great career booster and is ideal if you’re taking on more project-based work, looking to find new skills to apply at work, or are looking to move into a project manager role. In fact, PRINCE2 is so popular amongst employers now, you’ll often see it required for many roles which aren’t even project management roles.
Registered PRINCE2 Practitioner status
After passing your PRINCE2 Practitioner exam, you’ll be able to call yourself a registered PRINCE2 Practitioner. This status lasts for 5 years. It means you can add this title onto your CV and business card. After 5 years however you cannot continue to do this.
After 5 years, if you want to continue to call yourself a Registered PRINCE2 Practitioner, you need to pass something called a PRINCE2 Re-registration exam. By passing the exam, you are able to call yourself a Registered PRINCE2 Practitioner for a further 5 years.

For the online PRINCE2 Foundation course, the eLearning has been designed to not need the official PRINCE2 manual. For the online Practitioner or Foundation & Practitioner courses it is recommended that you purchase a manual. You can do that when you purchase the eLearning.
How long does it take to get my exam results?
It depends upon where you take your exam. If you take it online, you get your result almost immediately.
If you come to our examination room in London your trainer will mark your PRINCE2 Foundation exams and will usually give you your score before you leave the class. For the PRINCE2 Practitioner exam, your paper will be electronically scanned to enable you to get your results the same-day.
Do you offer discounts for group bookings?
Yes. It’s best to discuss your training needs with one of our representatives to discuss what we can do.
Who is your online PRINCE2 training suitable for?
Many people choose to gain their PRINCE2 certification online because they are unable to attend a classroom course. Perhaps they live too far away to travel to the training room. Sometimes students are unable to take time off work to attend. These are some common reasons why people buy our eLearning instead.
There are also some people who simply prefer to study at home in the comfort of their own home. They can study at their own pace and take the exam(s) when they are ready.
Does the course include exams?
Your PRINCE2 Foundation eLearning comes with the Foundation exam. Your Practitioner eLearning comes with the Practitioner exam and the Re-registration eLearning comes with your Re-registration exam. You can choose to take your exam within the period of validity of the eLearning.
When will I get my certificate?
If you pass the PRINCE2 exam your certificate will be available for download about 3 working days from the date of your exam.
I have no experience of programme management. Is this course the right course for me?
Yes. The PRINCE2 Foundation course is the entry-level PRINCE2 qualification and PRINCE2 Practitioner is the higher-level qualification. We get a lot of students on both courses without any previous project management experience. Both courses will offer you a good understanding of PRINCE2. The Practitioner course, however, focuses more on applying the framework, and so is better if you are seeking a career move into project management.
Both qualifications look great on your CV and, especially in the UK, you’ll find these qualifications highly demanded by employers.
Are there any prerequisites for the course?
For the PRINCE2 Foundation course there are no prerequisites. If you want to sit the PRINCE2 Practitioner exam, then you must have already passed the Foundation exam. For the PRINCE2 Re-registration exam, you must already have previously passed the Practitioner exam.
How long does the qualification last?
PRINCE2 certificates never expire. However, you are only able to call yourself a registered PRINCE2 Practitioner for 5 years after taking (and passing) the Practitioner exam. After that period, if you want to continue to call yourself a registered PRINCE2 Practitioner, then you must sit a short Re-registration examination.
Will this qualification help me to get a job?
In many countries, especially in the UK and Europe, more and more employers are looking for candidates with PRINCE2 certification. Without certification, you’ll be at a disadvantage compared to candidates who have the certification.
Are there any example exam questions?
Yes – as part of your online course you will be given access to 2 full sample Foundation and 2 full sample Practitioner/Re-registration exam papers.
How well known is the PRINCE2 project management methodology?
PRINCE2 is extensively used in the UK both in the public and private sectors. It is also popular in other countries around the world, especially in Europe and Australia. PRINCE2 is growing fastest however in India.
What's the difference between the Foundation and Practitioner examinations?
Both exams are multiple choice exams. The Foundation exam lasts for 1 hour, and it tests candidates on the terminology and concepts of the PRINCE2 methodology. The Practitioner exam lasts for 2.5 hours, but has different styles of multiple choice question, and tests candidates on their ability to apply the method to a particular project scenario.
The format of the Re-registration exam is similar to the Practitioner exam, except it’s only 1 hours long, rather than 2.5 hours long.
How many people have taken examinations?
In total, more than 1.4 million examinations have been taken worldwide since 1996. Of these, almost half were taken in the UK.
Are the exams difficult?
The Foundation exam is more straightforward than the Practitioner exam. The latter requires you not only to understand the methodology, but also to apply it to a specific project scenario.
Thorough exam preparation is a crucial part of all our PRINCE2 training. Of the people who attend our online courses, 99% pass the Foundation exam and around 86% pass the Practitioner exam. 97% pass the Re-registration exams.
