More about PRINCE2 courses online

Benefits of a PRINCE2 course online

There are several benefits if you take a PRINCE2 self-study course online.

1. Saves you time

If you are a busy professional, you often cannot afford the time to attend classroom training. So, taking a PRINCE2 self-study course saves you time.

2. Study on the go

You only need a device and an active internet connection to study a PRINCE2 course online, so you can study on the go.

3. Saves you money

If you are a freelancer or contractor, you will lose money if you take time off work to attend a classroom course.

With PRINCE2 self-study training you have no hotel bills or transport fares to pay, and a PRINCE 2 online course costs less than a classroom course.

So, choosing to study a PRINCE2 course online saves you money.

4. Works on any device

All our PRINCE2 online courses work with modern technology. There are no annoying downloads, apps or browser plugins required. PRINCE 2 online courses work just with your browser.

PRINCE2 online courses also work on any device – desktop, tablet or mobile – and on any OS – Windows, macOS, iOS, Android.

5. Exam taken online

All PRINCE2 online courses come with the PRINCE2 exam taken online. No travel to an exam centre is required, so you can plan your PRINCE2 certification entirely from home.

PRINCE2 Foundation online certification

You can obtain your Foundation PRINCE2 qualification online by taking an online PRINCE2 Foundation course which includes the online Foundation exam. All our PRINCE 2 courses online have been accredited by PeopleCert on behalf of AXELOS.

Target audience

This online training is ideal if you are new to project management and/or PRINCE2 and if you work on or would like to begin working on projects.

By the end of a Foundation-level PRINCE 2 online course you will have gained an understanding of the PRINCE2 methodology, terminology, and how to act as an informed member of a project team which uses PRINCE2.

PRINCE2 is also good if you do not come from a project management background (such as developers with qualifications such as Scrum) who want to learn about project management in ways which complements existing agile knowledge.

PRINCE2 Foundation exam

Our PRINCE2 Foundation online training comes with a 1-hour PRINCE2 online Foundation exam. For students taking our Foundation-level PRINCE 2 course online the pass rate for this exam is 99%. You will get your results straightaway after the exam.

Passing the Foundation exam is a prerequisite for obtaining the higher-level Practitioner certification.

PRINCE2 Practitioner online certification

If you already hold the PRINCE2 Foundation certification you can obtain your Practitioner PRINCE2 qualification online by taking the online PRINCE2 Practitioner course.

If you do not already hold the PRINCE2 Foundation certification you can obtain your PRINCE2 Practitioner by taking the combined PRINCE2 Foundation and Practitioner course online.

All courses come with the relevant PRINCE2 exam(s).

Target audience

PRINCE2 Practitioner is highly sought by employers when hiring project managers. Practitioner certification builds upon the knowledge you gained at Foundation level and shows that you can apply PRINCE2 on non-complex projects.

Practitioner certification provides a great career boost and is ideal if you are 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 will often see it is required for many roles which are not even project management roles.

Sometimes practicing programme managers with certifications such as MSP (Managing Successful Programmes) take a PRINCE Practitioner to complement their existing certification.

PRINCE2 Practitioner exam

At the end of a PRINCE2 Practitioner online course you will take a 2.5-hour Practitioner exam. For students taking our online training the pass rate for this exam is 86% (13% higher than the UK national average).

Registered PRINCE2 Practitioner status

After passing your Practitioner exam, you become a registered PRINCE2 Practitioner for 5 years and can add this title onto your CV and business card.

After 3 years, to maintain your Registered PRINCE2 Practitioner status, you must either pass another Practitioner exam, or have held a valid AXELOS membership for 3 years.

PRINCE2 online course design

Best practice design

Like all our online courses, our PRINCE2 online courses have been designed using the latest best practices in instructional design.

Some competitors develop e-learning cheaply by filming a trainer sat at a computer. We don’t think that’s a good way to help students learn, nor does it engage learners.

Deeper, longer-lasting learning

Our courses are highly interactive, and exercises have been designed to aid a deeper level of understanding, leading to longer-lasting learning.

Choosing your PRINCE2 online course

Not all online courses are the same

Not all e-learning is the same. Some elearning (like ours) is highly interactive. All our online courses are designed to engage your brain, and to provoke longer lasting and deeper understanding. Courses designed like ours cost a lot to develop.

Cheap PRINCE 2 online courses often just include video recordings of a tutor talking over a PowerPoint background. They are cheap to produce, but do not engage learners. They do not lead to longer-lasting learning. They require longer time to study because the learning methods employed are not effective. Quite simply, they are boring and hard work for users.

Other factors

Some other factors to ask before buying an online course are:

  • Does the online course include the real exam?
  • Does the online course include sample exams?
  • Does the online course include lots of questions designed to get you to engage with the content?
  • Is there an online demo of the course so you can preview before buying?
  • How long do you have access to the course for?
  • Does the course provide student support?
  • How experienced is the trainer who provides student support?
  • How much does the online course cost?

Ask these questions of your PRINCE 2 online training course provider before you purchase a course.

Do not just base your buying decision only on cost. The cost of taking a Knowledge Train PRINCE 2 online course is in the middle of the range, and you can get cheaper e-learning elsewhere.

Take your time to research the market before buying. You do not want to regret your decision.

PRINCE2 online course FAQs

Your online course includes:

  • Accredited PRINCE2 e-learning
  • Online feedback from an approved PRINCE2 trainer
  • Sample online PRINCE 2 exams
  • Exam voucher(s).

The online Foundation course is designed so you do not need the official PRINCE2 manual. For the online Practitioner course, it is recommended you buy a manual. You can do so when you buy the e-learning.

You can complete the online training and online exam preparation on any electronic device (desktop, tablet or mobile) and any platform (Windows, Mac, iOS, or Android). All you need is an internet connection.

No downloads are needed. There is no need to install any software or plugin because our online courses are designed with the latest web technologies They work on any modern browser.

The online training is professionally narrated and covers the full PRINCE2 syllabi. The official sample exam questions are included in the courses. You can study and take the exams online whenever you want.

Not quite. Traditional distance learning usually meant you would receive assignments sent by a remote teacher. In our online courses, exercises are built-in so you don't have to wait for a trainer to send you materials. Also, at any time you can contact our trainer if you have any questions about the materials.

As a rough guide the times needed to complete our online courses, including exam preparation are:

  • PRINCE2 Foundation - 17 hours.
  • PRINCE2 Practitioner - 18 hours.

We understand that different people learn at different speeds; you may want to complete the home study within a couple of weeks or spread it out over several months instead. With 12 months’ access to the home study resources, you can take your time and don’t need to rush when studying.

Our online training gives you access to online help from an experienced PRINCE2 trainer. If you need help or have questions about PRINCE2, send an email to the trainer who will respond within 24 hours. With this kind of trainer support, you should easily be able to solve any difficulties you have when studying PRINCE2.

Your Foundation e-learning comes with the Foundation exam. Your Practitioner e-learning comes with the Practitioner exam. You can choose to take your exam within the period of validity of the e-learning.

If you take your exam online, you get your result almost immediately.

If you come to our examination centre in London the invigilator marks your Foundation exam and gives you your score before leaving the class. For the Practitioner exam, your paper will be electronically scanned to enable you to get your results the same day.

If you pass the PRINCE2 exam, you will achieve PRINCE2 certification from AXELOS. The certificate is the same whether you have studied from home or in a classroom. It is available for download 3 working days from your exam date.

No. Many students take both Foundation and Practitioner online courses without any previous project management experience. Both courses offer you a good understanding of PRINCE 2. The Practitioner course focuses more on applying the framework, and so it 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 will find these qualifications are highly demanded by employers.

In many countries, especially in the UK and Europe, increasingly employers are looking for candidates with PRINCE2. Without certification, you will be at a disadvantage compared to candidates who have it.

The 1-hour Foundation exam is easier than the 2.5-hour Practitioner exam. Foundation tests your knowledge of the method whilst the latter requires you can apply it to a specific project scenario.

Thorough exam preparation is a crucial part of all our PRINCE2 training. Since 2012 of the people who take our online courses, 99% pass the Foundation exam and around 86% pass the Practitioner exam.

After your self-study is over and you are ready to take your exam and are based in the UK, you can either sit your exam at our London venue, or you can sit the exam online at home using a web cam.

For students living abroad, you can sit the exams online using virtual proctor software which you can easily download and install on your computer. You must book your exam in advance. Our training advisors can give you details.

You can purchase the latest version of the PRINCE2 manual to support your learning during your e-learning. The manual is not essential for Foundation, but we recommend it for Practitioner.

Please note: you cannot use the manual during the Foundation exam, but you can use it during the Practitioner exam.

All our online PRINCE2 courses are developed with modern educational technology tools. If you are looking for a corporate solution, all our online courses support SCORM and TinCan API, so the courses work with a Learning Management System (LMS).

If you will work in an agile environment, we recommend that you get Agile Project Management (AgilePM®) certification. Otherwise, especially in the UK, PRINCE2 certification is more in demand.

If you mean which is the best PRINCE2 online course for you, it depends upon your goals. If you currently know nothing about PRINCE2, the best PRINCE2 online course is Foundation. If you already have Foundation, the best PRINCE2 online course for you is Practitioner.

If you mean which is the best PRINCE2 online course compared with all the courses in the UK market, then of course we would say ours. However, for you to be assured ours is the best PRINCE2 online course, then read about ‘Choosing your course’ from the menu on the left.
