PRINCE2 (Projects in Controlled Environments Version 2) is a generic project management methodology helping individuals and organizations to control the start, middle and end of a project.
The method is a structured approach to project management based on 7 best practice management Principles and comprising of 7 management Processes and Themes (knowledge areas). Importantly PRINCE2 encourages users to apply PRINCE2 to the needs of the project environment.
Initially developed in 1989 by the CCTA (Central Computer and Telecommunications Agency) for the management of IT projects, the method was later enhanced and transformed to a generic project management model to be used by all UK government projects. This new version, known as version 2 was launched in 1996 and hence its title PRINCE2. PRINCE2 underwent a ‘refresh’ in 2009 and again in 2017 with the aim of making it more ‘user friendly’ and providing further guidance on tailoring PRINCE2 to the needs of the project environment.
Our PRINCE2 training is based on the latest version of PRINCE2, known as PRINCE2 2017.
Since 1996 the method has been adopted by government and private organizations across the world and has fast become the ‘de facto’ standard for project management.

The two certification levels are Foundation and Practitioner. Foundation certification demonstrates an understanding of how the method operates. The Practitioner certification demonstrates competency in applying and adapting the method to different project situations and scenarios.
Two different exams are offered, known as PRINCE2 Foundation and Practitioner certification exams.
The Foundation Exam is a 1 hour, 60 question, multiple choice exam. Candidates must obtain 33 or more correct responses to gain the Foundation certification.
The Practitioner Exam is a 2.5 hour, 68 question, open book (PRINCE2 official manual only), scenario based exam. Candidates must obtain 38 or more correct responses to gain Practitioner certification.
Practitioner exam questions are presented in two styles: multiple choice and matching.
Note: Passing the Foundation exam is a pre-requisite to completing the Practitioner exam.
PRINCE2 2017 Practitioners are required to be re-registered within 3 years of their original certification. This can be achieved by completing and passing a PRINCE2 Practitioner exam or becoming a member of the Axleos membership program. Please contact us for more information.
