    Certification Process

    All PRINCE®2 certifications are offered by AXELOS, which is the accrediting body for PRINCE2® certification. 

    You can self-study and take the examination directly through an AXELOS Examination Institute like PeopleCert® without attending an accredited training course, for all of the PRINCE2® certifications. 

    However, undertaking a formalized training programme through an Accredited Training Organization (ATO) like KnowledgeHut highly increases your chances of being successful in the exam. Most importantly, beyond providing extensive exam preparation, the training will equip you with real-world skills and help you stand out among your peers. 

    Here are the steps you should follow to get certified in the PRINCE®2 Foundation and PRINCE®2 Practitioner:  

    1. Fulfill the eligibility requirements.

Practice extensively. 
    5. If you have decided to self-study, schedule the exam through PeopleCert. If you have enrolled with KnowledgeHut, we will schedule the exam on a date suitable for you. You can take the test online via PeopleCert Online Proctoring or at a Training Organization convenient for you. All you need is a PC or Mac computer and an internet connection.  
    6. If you're taking the exam at a training organization near you, you will need to carry with you: (1) a print-out of the exam schedule from PeopleCert; (2) Proof of identity like passport, Driving license.

    On passing the exam, AXELOS will send you an email regarding the My AXELOS membership and how you can activate it. Complete the yearly requirement of 20 CPDs so that you can get a digital badge that reflects your achievement. The PRINCE2 Practitioner certificate expires after 3 years. Renew your certification by taking the Practitioner exam again or by maintaining the CPD requirements. 

    You will need to attend 32-hours of PRINCE2 Foundation and Practitioner training from an ATO of AXELOS and PeopleCert®, following which you will be required to take the exams to demonstrate your knowledge of PRINCE2 and get certified.

      PRINCE2®

      The full form of PRINCE2 is Projects in Controlled Environments.  

      The Central Computer and Telecommunications Agency (CCTA), UK adopted PROMPT II in 1989 for IT project management as a UK Government standard. It was given the name ‘PRINCE’ that stood for PROMPT II IN the CCTA environment. Then in 1996, PRINCE2 was released as a general project management method. It includes processes and themes that are preferred by project managers and industries over other methodologies.  

      PRINCE2 helps the managers in carrying out projects in the given budget and time. The given projects and tasks are divided into clear stages and focus is maintained on product delivery instead of mere activities. The main elements of the methodology are 7 themes, 7 principles, 7 processes and adaptation to the project’s environment.

      PRINCE2 is a project management methodology that is used for public and private sector projects in different countries. The UK government instituted it as the standard for IT projects.  

      AXELOS is the governing body of PRINCE2. Created in 2013 in the UK, this accredited training organization conducts training and awards certification exams. There is a logo of AXELOS on the PRINCE2 Practitioner certificate.  

      Since the number of project managers is on the rise, there is no specific answer to this question. However, there was a statistic showing that there are 450,000 members in PMI and about 650,000 PMP professionals.

      PRINCE2 is a project management methodology that is recognized and used in public as well as the private sector in the UK and internationally. The framework stipulates that every project’s beginning, middle, and end should be organized and controlled.

      The framework of PRINCE2 has four integrated elements: Themes, Principles, Processes, and Adaptation to the environment of the project that forms the foundation of the framework.  

      The themes of PRINCE2 can be categorized into 7 cases:  

      • Business case 
      • Organizations 
      • Quality 
      • Plans 
      • Risk  
      • Change  
      • Progress  

      PRINCE2 processes are structured tasks created for achieving specific goals and completing projects successfully. There are 7 processes including: 

      1. Starting up a project 
      2. Initiating a project  
      3. Directing a project  
      4. Controlling a Stage   
      5. Managing Product Delivery   
      6. Managing Stage Boundaries 
      7. Closing a project  

      PRINCE2® (Projects In Controlled Environments) is a project management methodology that divided the project into controllable and manageable parts. Created as a standard for IT projects by the UK government, this has 7 principles, themes, and processes.

      The project management issues can be solved by the PRINCE2 methodology by identification of all the risks, threats, and opportunities in the project. It also determines the solutions for the challenges.  

      The following changes were made in PRINCE2 6th Edition update: 

      • More importance to the principles underpinning PRINCE2 
      • Focusing on the connection within principles and themes 
      • Reconstructing the guidance of themes for assisting certain tailoring models 
      • Utilizing the administration and processes rationally through suggestions, examples, and warnings 
      • Renewal of certification using My PRINCE2 
      • Using reference and approach for covering aspects of project management 

      The main reason behind the PRINCE2 6th Edition update was the feedback collected from experts over a period of 8 years. AXELOS has revised the PRINCE2 learning so that they can keep up with the technology. 

      Project managers are going to be in high demand in the coming years. According to PMI, by the year 2027, there will be a need for 87.7 million jobs in the field of project management. It is one of the most in-demand and lucrative career options.  

      For undertaking self-study, we recommend that you prepare a study time table and stick to it.  If you can study for a certain number of hours per day, you will be able to finish the exam content within a couple of weeks. Before you start preparation, make sure that you have all the required resources. Try practice tests. 

      PRINCE2 Foundation certification gives you an understanding of the PRINCE2 methodology and system. You will need this certification before you can move on to advanced levels. 

      The PRINCE2 Practitioner certification is an advanced level qualification for those wanting to implement the PRINCE2 principles to a project.
