The PRINCE2 Practitioner Certificate measures whether a candidate would be able to apply PRINCE2 to the running and managing of a straight forward project within an environment supporting PRINCE2. To this end they need to exhibit the competence required for the Foundation qualification, and show that they can apply and tune PRINCE2 to address the needs and problems of a specific project scenario.
Candidates must be able to:
- Produce detailed explanations of all processes, themes and principles, and worked examples of all PRINCE2 products as they might be applied to address the particular circumstances of a given project scenario
- Show they understand the relationships between processes, themes, techniques and PRINCE2 products and can apply this understanding
- Demonstrate that they understand the reasons behind the processes, themes and techniques of PRINCE2, and that they understand the principles underpinning these elements
- Demonstrate their ability to tune PRINCE2 to different project circumstances.
Most people seeking the Prince2 Practitioner certificate take a 5 day classroom event which covers both Foundation and Practitioner exams, or a blended online learning package which includes a workshop element.
Those who pass the exam become "Registered PRINCE2 Practitioners". To maintain this PRINCE2 Certification you need to take a Re-registration exam between 3 and 5 years from the initial exam date.
You can see how you would get on by taking our PRINCE2 Quiz which includes exam style questions.
Candidates may prepare for the exam by attending a combined PRINCE2 Foundation and Practitioner training course, or by attending only a PRINCE2 Practitioner conversion course if the Foundation certificate is already held.
It is a 2.5 hour exam and candidates are allowed access to the PRINCE2 manual (but not other material).
Whilst it is now a multiple choice format candidates must be aware that this is a challenging, case study based exam which requires considerable preparation.
