PRINCE2® Certification Process

PRINCE2 Certification Hyderabad

PRINCE2®, an acronym for Projects In a Controlled Environment, is a project management procedure that was created originally for the IT sector but soon spread across a wide range of other industries and sectors. This structured project management method helps developers and project managers create a rough blueprint of the project by dividing it into manageable chunks thus helping to optimize the time and the resources available in the best possible way. PRINCE2 was first launched in 1989 and since then the methodology has been used in private and public sectors alike.

PRINCE2® (Projects IN Controlled Environments) gives you a step-by-step chronologically organized procedure to manage your projects that is popular both in the UK and across the world. Developers and professionals who want to learn more about this procedure can take up the certification courses that comprise of various levels of expertise. The PRINCE2® Foundation is the basic level, PRINCE2® Practitioner, is the next level after Foundation and the two levels of PRINCE2® Agile are suited to Agile methods.

The PRINCE2 6th Edition certification is divided into two main levels, namely:

  1. PRINCE2 6th Edition Foundation Certification is an entry-level course that teaches you the basics of how this system works and the best ways to effectively use it. Holders of this certification can go on to further achieve the PRINCE2® Practitioner certification.
  2. PRINCE2 6th Edition Practitioner Certification:  This course further improves your understanding of how the PRINCE platform works and the best ways to optimize it. It is an important course for candidates who want to understand the technical details and intricacies of the platform better and manage projects on a high level.

Apart from the two levels, PRINCE2® also offers an Agile certification path which includes:

  1. PRINCE2® Agile Foundation: this certification helps candidates get a better idea about the kind of agile projects ad platforms that they can work with. It broadens their perception about the PRINCE platform and gives you access to more management controls and tools.
  2. PRINCE2® Agile Practitioner: here the candidates learn how to blend structure, governance, and control with agile methods, techniques, and approaches.

There are basically two main types of certifications available for people who want to work with PRINCE2- the Foundation level and Practitioner level.

Here are some details about the eligibility criteria and other details that you should know about before applying for this certification.

1. There are no specific requirements for the Foundation level course. It would be an added advantage if you are familiar with the basic concepts of project management though.

2. For the next level or the Practitioner certification, candidates have to pass any one or more of these exams

  • PRINCE2 Foundation (or higher) - this only applies to certificates obtained after 1 January 2009

  • Certified Associate in Project Management (CAPM)*
  • IPMA Level A® (Certified Projects Director)
  • IPMA Level B® (Certified Senior Project Manager)
  • IPMA Level C® (Certified Project Manager)
  • IPMA Level D® (Certified Project Management Associate)

3. There are no prior eligibility requirements for the Agile Foundation level certifications as well. 

4. However, for the Agile practitioner level, you need to clear any one of these advanced-level exams and get the appropriate score. The list includes;

  • PRINCE2® Foundation (or higher)
  • PRINCE2 Agile® Foundation
  • Project Management Professional® (PMP)*
  • Certified Associate in Project Management® (CAPM)*

Getting the PRINCE2 certification is just the first step, because you need to ensure that you maintain it year on year. Candidates have to regularly update and upgrade the validity of their degree to stay relevant in the industry. Only the Foundation level courses of the Prince Foundation Certification and the Prince Agile Foundation Course have lifelong validity. The other two Practitioner courses are valid for only 3 years each.  

Once the validity of the certification is over you need to re-register and appear for the exam the following year. Alternately, candidates can earn and maintain a 20 CPDs track record every year. Note that a MyPRINCE2® membership is mandatory in order to maintain the required CPDs.
