    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.

    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.

    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®

        PRINCE2® stands for Projects In Controlled Environments. It is a globally recognized certificate that originates in the UK. 

        A method known as PROMPT II was adopted in the UK by the Central Computer and Telecommunications Agency (CCTA) in 1989. Originally the acronym PRINCE meant PROMPT II IN the CCTA Environment. Later, it started standing for Projects In Controlled Environments. In 1996, PRINCE2® was released as a generic project management method. 

        The specialized framework of PRINCE2® allows practicing and aspiring managers to carry out their projects within a given budget and allotted time. It contains 4 main elements; 7 principles, 7 themes, 7 processes and adaptation to the environment of the project. 

        Originating in the UK, PRINCE2® is used in both public and private sectors across different countries of the world. 

        Axelos is the governing body of PRINCE2® that conducts training and awards certification examinations. 

        There is no exact number, but statistics have shown over 450,000 PMI members, with more than 650,000 certified PMP professionals. 

        PRINCE2® methodology is a popular project management standard that is used and recognized in the UK and internationally. 

        There are four integrated elements in the PRINCE2® Framework, which  are Principles, Processes, Themes and project environment adaptation. The framework is built on the 7 principles, 7 themes and 7 processes 

        There are seven categories of PRINCE2® themes: organization, business case, plans, quality, change, risk, and progress. These themes provide insights on how to carry out projects for it to be result-oriented. 

        The 7 Themes of the PRINCE2® methodology are Business Case, Organisation, Plans, Quality, Change, Risk and Progress. 

        The 7 processes of PRINCE2® are: 

        1. Starting Up a project (SU) 
        2. Initiating a project (IP) 
        3. Directing a project (DP) 
        4. Controlling a Stage (CS)  
        5. Managing Product Delivery (MP) 
        6. Managing Stage Boundaries (SB)  
        7. Closing a project (CP) 

        PRINCE2® is a well recognized project management that stipulates dividing of projects into controllable and manageable parts. 

        PRINCE2® methodology solves project management issues through identification of risks, threats and opportunities and determining the best response to these challenges. 

        The latest update of PRINCE2® was introduced by AXELOS in May 2017. This update is the first one since its 2009 launch. Some major changes include: 

        • Meeting the requirements of organizations and project environments
        • Principles underpinning PRINCE2 have been given great importance
        • Connection within the themes and principles have been illuminated
        • ‘Themes’ guidance has been reconstructed for assisting particular models of tailoring 
        • The rational utilization of the process and administration, with numerous suggestions, examples, and warnings
        • Certificate renewal through My PRINCE2.
        • The approach and reference cover every aspect of project management
        • Major focus on membership for level certification holders, allowing them to stay updated and maintain current relevance.

        Constant feedback was collected from experts over the course of 8 years, which became one of the main reasons behind the PRINCE2 6th edition update. 

        For the past few years, Project Management has been a career option that is in great demand. Furthermore, as per PMI®, by 2027, 87.7 million project management roles will be required by employers. 

        Undertaking self-study for PRINCE2® Foundation and Practitioner exams require being disciplined and working on planned schedules. 

        PRINCE2® Foundation Certification is meant for beginners in the field of project management. It provides an understanding of the PRINCE2® system and methodology. 

        The PRINCE2® Practitioner is an advanced level of qualification for professionals who want to apply the PRINCE2® principles to a given project
