PRINCE2 Qualifications and Training

What is the PRINCE2 Qualification?

PRINCE2 (PRrojects IN Controlled Environments) this method tackles project management through four collective elements of principles, themes, processes and the project environment. Principles of PRINCE2 training are the regulatory requirements and good practices which determine whether the project is genuinely being achieved using PRINCE2 Methodology. There are seven principles of PRINCE2 and these are: 

  1. Continued business justification.
  2. Learn from experience.
  3. Defined roles and responsibilities.
  4. Manage by stages.
  5. Manage by Exception.
  6. Focus on products.
  7. Tailor to suit the project environment.

Unless all of the principles are applied to a project it is not a PRINCE2 Project. By the application of the seven principles of PRINCE2, you will be able to ask yourself is there a justifiable reason for starting the project that will remain consistent throughout the duration. By doing this you're creating the environment which you can control through continually seeking and drawing on lessons learned from previous work.

Not only should the PRINCE2 project team have a clear organisational structure you will need to make sure all the right people are involved for the right tasks. PRINCE2 projects should be planned, monitored and controlled on a stage-by-stage basis, also the projects should have defined acceptances for each project to create the limits of delegated authority. 

PRINCE2 projects focus on the product definition, delivery and quality requirements which will help tailor the project to suit the environment, size, complexity, importance, capability and risk of the PRINCE2 project.

PRINCE2 themes describe different aspects of project management that must be addressed in parallel throughout the project.

The seven themes of PRINCE2 Training are as follows: 

  1. Business case
  2. Organization
  3. Quality
  4. Plans
  5. Risk
  6. Change
  7. Progress

These themes clarify the precise handling required by PRINCE2 for numerous project management disciplines and why they are essential. PRINCE2 Processes, these are described as the steps of the project lifecycle. From getting the PRINCE2 project started to project termination, each process provides a list of specifications of suggested actions, products and related accountabilities. 

The PRINCE2 processes are: 

  1. Starting up a project.
  2. Directing a project.
  3. Initiating a project.
  4. Controlling a stage.
  5. Managing product delivery.
  6. Managing stage boundaries.
  7. Closing a project.

Use of the PRICE2 Processes through the product Lifecycle: 

PRINCE2 Processes

Tailoring PRINCE2 to the Project Environment well help organisations to adjust PRINCE2 to specific circumstances of the project. PRINCE2 is not to be used as a 'one size fits all' methodology, however using this methodology correctly increases the chances of tailoring the PRINCE2 framework to any style or scope of a project.

PRINCE2 qualifications include:

  • PRINCE2 Foundation and Practitioner
    • PRINCE2 Foundation and Practitioner training is the combination of both PRINCE2 Foundation and PRINCE2 Practitioner. These courses have been combined so that you can achieve the full qualification in just 5-days.
  • PRINCE2 Foundation
    • PRINCE2 Foundation Training is a good way to introduce delegates to the basic methodology and terminology of PRINCE2 which once complete would be the first step to completing the PRINCE2 Qualification. You will be able to complete this in just 3 days.
  • PRINCE2 Practitioner
    • PRINCE2 Practitioner Training is a good way to finish the RPINCE2 Qualification as this will provide the delegate with the knowledge of how to manage a project within the PRINCE2 environment and maximise the effectiveness project. You will be able to complete this in just 2 days.
  • PRINCE2 Re-Registration
    • PRINCE2 Re-Registration, this course was designed by the PRINCE2 Examination board. They felt all registered PRINCE2 Practitioners should be re-registered within 3-5 years of their original certificate.
  • PRINCE2 Agile
    • PRINCE2 Agile Practitioner training is a great way to integrate the flexibility and responsiveness of Agile methodologies into the PRINCE2 Framework. This is open to all who hold the following; PRINCE2 Foundation, PRINCE2 Practitioner, Project Management Professional® (PMP), Certified Associate in Project Management® (CAPM), and IMPA Levels A, B, C and D® (Certified Projects Director). You will be able to complete this in just 3 days.

These qualifications provide proof to employers that you have the knowledge and skills required to pass the course and lead or work effectively in a project management team. PRINCE2 training is managed by AXELOS, a leading worldwide best practice methodology provider. It is used extensively by the UK government, as well as in private businesses such as the telecommunications company Orange.


What is the PRINCE2 Exam?

There are several levels of examinations with PRINCE2 and Foundation is the first of the two examinations that you are required to pass. The next examination is the Practitioner exam which must be passed after completing the Foundation exam. These examinations are designed to test whether the candidate has the skills required to become an effective member of a project management team.


How long does PRINCE2 last?

The PRINCE2 Foundation certification has no defined period and will never expire or need to be renewed. This doesn’t apply to the PRINCE2 Practitioner certification though as this has to be renewed within 5 years or else the candidate will lose his Registered Practitioner status.

Case Study

PRINCE2® training has been successfully used in a project to expand the port of Rotterdam.

In the 2000s, the port of Rotterdam was one of the busiest ports in the world and was running out of space. The answer was to expand the port outwards towards the North Sea, in a project called “Maasvlakte 2”.

A project management consultancy called Ambition Group, led by Dr Richard Moret recommended PRINCE2 as a method of managing the project, but the board were unsuitable of its suitability for a project of Maasvlakte’s size. The Project Director decided to test PRINCE2 by using it in the first stage of the project: the project initiation.

Initially, PRINCE2® was met by resistance from those staff who felt they already knew how to do project management. By meeting with them weekly and working with them closely, Dr Moret managed to smoothly introduce PRINCE2, and everyone quickly started to understand the benefits of PRINCE2 training.

By the end of the project in 2012, everyone involved was fully supportive of the PRINCE2® methodologies, and it was used to manage the entire project. The project was delivered on time and within budget thanks to the rigorous governance provided by the PRINCE2® techniques.

I participated in the PRINCE2 Foundation and Practitioner course and was very happy with the whole process. I received pre course material just after booking the course, with a comprehensive description of the process and the work required before and during the course. The material also included a daily schedule for the course and exam-related questions. The training was performed by a professional tutor who made sure everyone was up to speed at all times. He also made us work together in groups, so we got to know each other a little. I was very happy with the whole experience.

I attended the Prince 2 course run by the Knowledge Academy in Leeds in November 2011 and managed to achieve high marks due to the excellent tuition received on the course and the quality of the Knowledge Academy literature. I followed the instructions provided by the Knowledge Academy regarding pre course reading and this really prepared me for the intensive week ahead. All the other attendees were suitably impressed by the quality of tuition and the provision of course material. I have booked courses in MSP and M_o_R on the basis of the quality provided in the Prince 2 course.

With my previous project management experience, I thought the course would be ‘simple’. But it was definitely very intensive and proved truly beneficial to attend the training. Working with other participants sharing experience helped to expand my understanding. The course was delivered maintaining the integrity and intensity of the course; at the same time engaging and sharing the experience from the Trainer which was really useful.
4.922
The Knowledge Academy made the experience of going through intensive PRINCE2 training very clear and understandable from the initial booking. I found the course instructor not only helpful and insightful, but very easy to approach for additional help at the end of each session. I would absolutely return to The Knowledge Academy for my future training needs.
