"I was a bit unsure if the online training was for me but decided to give it a try over the classroom option, and I am pleased I did. The training was easy to use, and I liked the way the audio guided me through the lessons and the support I had from Cyril and Victoria made a big difference"

The Re-Registration Exam
The PRINCE2 re-registration exam can be taken online at a time and date to suit you.
It comprises an exam paper set at the same standard as the Practitioner examination and is based on the 2009 PRINCE2 Manual.
◦ 3 questions - 10 question items per question, each worth one mark
◦ 17 marks or more required to pass (out of 30 available) - 55%
◦ 1 hour (60 minute) duration, no additional reading time
◦ Open-book exam (only the official PRINCE2 Manual only).
1. If you took your PRINCE2 Practitioner qualification in or after October 2000 then you will have agreed to re-registering as part of your initial application and you’ll be able to use the designation of ‘Registered PRINCE2 Practitioner’. So you’ve already committed to the process in order to keep general standards high for professional project managers.
2. If you first took your PRINCE2 Practitioner before October 2000, you are under no obligation to re-register, however if you don’t then you can’t say you are a Registered PRINCE2 Practitioner.
3. Potential employers look for valid qualifications and will ask you when you passed your exam.
4. Taking the re-registration exam proves your commitment to your professionalism and shows that your knowledge of the method is up to date.
5. If you are going for a job and everything else is equal but another candidate has re-registered and you haven’t, they’d be more likely to get the job.
It’s really worth keeping your certification up to date. Practitioner status lasts up to five years from the date on your certificate.
