PRINCE2 Agile® Foundation and Practitioner Virtual

Why should I take the PRINCE2 Agile Foundation and Practitioner virtual course?

PRINCE2 Agile LogoPRINCE2 Agile represents an evolution of PRINCE2, being the first extension module to the PRINCE2 method. This certification helps you to tailor PRINCE2 for your organization in an agile way. Since the 2001 Agile Manifesto, agile approaches are becoming more popular for many reasons:

  • Incremental delivery of products
  • Time box and iterative approach to delivering
  • A collection of techniques such as daily stand-up meetings, sprints and users’ stories
  • Collaboration working

PRINCE2 Agile describes how to configure and tune PRINCE2 so that PRINCE2 can be used in the most effective way when combining it with agile behavior, concepts, frameworks and techniques.

Virtual classroom training allows you to benefit from real-time teaching in the comfort of your home or office. You get the same interactions as an on site course and will be able to ask questions to the instructor. Since the exams are not done on paper during the class but online, you will also benefit with time to study and prepare until you are ready to get the certification.

You can change the time of the exams as you please. However, if you change the date 48hrs prior to start time, PeopleCert will charge a fee. A webcam is required to identify yourself to the proctor with a photographic ID and then you can do the exams online from home.

What are the technical requirements for the online exam?

A personal computer is recommended to avoid any technical issues. If you are using an office computer, make sure you have the access rights or IT support at the time of the exam. For the online proctored exam an interface needs to be installed. Administrative rights are therefore essential. Exams can be taken on a recent MAC or PC with Windows. A webcam and working microphone (internal or external) are required. The online exam is not available on a tablet (Ipad) or Cellular phone at the moment.

How does the course prepare me for the PRINCE2 Agile Foundation and Practitioner exams?

The course follows the official PRINCE2 Agile Foundation and Practitioner exam syllabus. The accredited training materials are cross referenced to areas of the exam so that you are fully prepared. During the course, you practice with the latest exam papers from Peoplecert International. Day 4-5 of the course are dedicated to practicing for your Practitioner exam and our expert trainer will guide you through a series of exercises and discussions to get you ready for the exam itself.

Do I need ID for the PRINCE2 Agile exams?

You must have a photographic ID with you. A driver’s license or passport is fine. A work ID, with photograph, is also acceptable.

English is not my native tongue?

For exams done in another language than your native tongue, you will be attributed 25% more time. We can also make arrangements to help with dyslexia or medical issues regarding exams if you submit a doctor’s note in advance.

How long does my PRINCE2 Agile qualification last?

The PRINCE2 Agile certificates are valid 3 years.
You can join the MyAXELOS membership for a small fee, maintain your digital badge and certification by recording 20 points of continuous development per year. Otherwise retaking the exams after 3 years will be costly.

Candidates who do not renew will still be included on the Successful Candidates Register (SCR) and the Candidate Verification Service, but a note will be added to their record to indicate that their certification needs to be renewed to align with current certification requirements.

What happens if I don’t pass an exam?

If you don’t pass an exam you can do a re-sit. We will send you a new voucher code for an additional fee. If you feel insecure, it is possible to purchase a re-sit insurance from PeopleCert up to 15 minutes prior to taking the exam. This will provide you a second attempt if necessary within the following 6 months.


What are the class hours?
Start time for the Western classes is usually 8h30 a.m. or 9h00 a.m. Central time zone, and for Eastern classes 8h30 a.m. or 9h00 a.m. Eastern time zone. You can check our schedule for more details.
How do I prepare for PRINCE2 Agile training?
You have about 5 hours of preparation to do before you attend the PRINCE2 Agile virtual course. Before the class, we will send you the official PRINCE2 Agile manual as well as a reading list. During the pre-course, you read key chapters of the manual. It seems a lot at first but the more work you can do in advance of the course, the better.  Even if you don’t 100% understand things before you come along – don’t worry. If you’ve done the work, our trainers are experts in PRINCE2 Agile. We’ll get you understanding the method in no time at all.
How does the virtual class work?
You connect to the online platform (Zoom) and the instructor will deliver the course to you wherever you are. We ask that you keep your camera open as much as possible so that the trainer can get a good sense of how learning is evolving. Some time periods will be allocated for questions, interactive exercises, lunch and breaks.
Can I split the PRINCE2 Agile Foundation and Practitioner course?
Yes. You have a busy schedule so 5 days out of office may not be possible. Also, you may prefer to take the Foundation first, apply some of your new knowledge and then come back and upgrade to Practitioner. We don’t charge extra if you book the two levels of the course separately.
Can exams be taken on paper?
No. As of February 1st, 2022, the exam authority PeopleCert has eliminated paper exams in favor of online.
I am not sure my computer is up to date for the online exam?
You can use the contact form to send us a message in advance. We will be able to verify if your computer meets the technical requirements.
What is the process for a proctored exam?
The exam authority has a strict procedure for online exams to ensure the security of the session. Some of them are: You will be asked to be alone in a well-lit room with no background noise. The proctor will ask you to rotate your webcam in order to verify the area. Your desk must be clean of papers, books or notes. Glass walls and/or doors are prohibited unless they are covered.
