Which exam is included in this course?

This course includes the PRINCE2 Practitioner exam.

PRINCE2 Practitioner Exam

  • 68 multiple choice questions
  • Open book exam, but only the official PRINCE2 manual can be used
  • 2.5 hours duration
  • 55% needed to pass so a score of 38 / 68 is required

When is the exam taken?

When you are ready to take the exam, we will send you a prepaid voucher. You will be able to schedule the exam in the portal anytime you want 24/7. A webcam is required to identify yourself to the proctor with a photographic ID and then you can do the exam online from home.

What’s the best way to prepare for the PRINCE2 exam?

Set your exam date first. Then work towards it. The material takes 34 hours study to get you to Practitioner level. So, work out how long that is going to take you and then book the exam. This way you have a clear target to aim at. This will help you stay on schedule.

Do I need ID for the PRINCE2 exam?

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

How long does my PRINCE2 qualification last?

The Practitioner qualification must be renewed every 3 years to maintain your status as a PRINCE2 Registered Practitioner. You will have the option of adhering to the Axelos Membership program (Free year 1) and earn 20 CPD points every year to remain current.

What happens if I don’t pass the PRINCE2 exam?

If you don’t pass a PRINCE2 exam you can do a re-sit. We will send you a new voucher code for an additional fee.

Can I just take the PRINCE2 exam with you?

Sorry, no. We are an Accredited Training Organization for PRINCE2, so we are not permitted to offer just exams.


How many hours of study are required to pass the exam?

You need about 20 hours study for the Foundation level. And 14 hours more to get to the Practitioner level.

How do PMPs get credit for prior learning?

If you are a current PMP or CAPM you are not required to take the PRINCE2 Foundation exam. You still need to gain Foundation level knowledge of PRINCE2 but it’s one less exam to worry about.

Do I need to log project management experience before the course?

PRINCE2 does not require you to log hours of project management experience before training. The PRINCE2 approach is a bit like learning to drive: you certify and then practice.

Why should I get both PRINCE2 and PMP certifications?

PRINCE2 and PMP are useful and complementary tools in your skill set – they don’t compete. Certification in the PRINCE2 methodology is an excellent complement to your PMP credential and awards PDUs for instructor led classes or online learning.

The two certifications cover different sides of the project management coin. They increase your earning potential, enhance your skills and improve your employability PRINCE2 and PMP are the most popular global project management certifications, but they are different:

  • PRINCE2 is a project management methodology – it covers, in detail, the processes and activities which a project management team must carry out to deliver a project of value to the sponsoring organization.
  • The PMP credential, based on the PMBOK Guide, is the sum of knowledge of the project management profession. It covers what is generally accepted on most projects, most of the time
Can you compare PRINCE2 online vs classroom?

Good question. PRINCE2 online learning is flexible – you can fit the learning around your schedule. You don’t have to take time off to attend a course and you can work anywhere – at home, on the road, in hotels etc. Like our classroom training the material is fully accredited and will prepare you for the PRINCE2 Practitioner exam. But sometimes, online learning can be too flexible, so you need to be disciplined and set yourself a clear schedule.

PRINCE2 instructor led training is the quickest route to PRINCE2 certification – it is all done in a week. During a classroom event, you get access to a PRINCE2 approved trainer and many students say that the trainer’s insights and enthusiasm increase their understanding of the methodology. The opportunity to ask specific questions and get immediate answers is one of the biggest benefits of instructor led training. There are also invaluable networking opportunities so you can share and learn from other’s experiences.

I am thinking about buying the PRINCE2 manual and self-studying?

If you are doing this for cost reasons, it’s a mistake. Our e-learning package includes everything and is built to save you money and trouble. Our fully accredited e-learning package includes online lessons, the latest practice exam questions, shipping, examination costs and proctor fees. There is nothing else to pay and you have a higher chance of passing your PRINCE2 exam.

How many PDUs do I get for this course?

PMPs can claim 38 PDUs at the PMI for the PRINCE2 For PMPs Online course. (20 Technical PDUs, 10 Leadership PDUs, 8 Strategic PDUs).
