Prince2® Training FAQ's
When you pass the PRINCE2 Practitioner exam you are awarded the qualification “Registered PRINCE2 Practitioner”.
Your status as a “Registered PRINCE2 Practitioner” will lapse 5 years from your exam date. This does not mean your original certificate is invalid – but to be recognised as a registered practitioner you need to refresh your knowledge and pass the re-registration exam.
The only prerequisite you will need is a general background knowledge and experience of project management. In that way you will be able to relate the specific terms and stages of the PRINCE2 methodology to your own personal experience
Focus is not an accredited training organisation, but wherever appropriate your training will be delivered by one of our fully accredited specialist partners.

As PRINCE2 is a very successful project management qualification, a large number of people and organisations have used and implemented PRINCE2. Since its introduction in 1989, Prince 2 has become the de facto standard for project management in both the public and private sectors.
Thousands of UK professionals have successfully used PRINCE2 to create a standard and structured approach to their project management, running projects which are well-organised, well-planned and results-driven.
It is estimated that there are more than 300,000 certified practitioners, and exams are undertaken in 57 countries.
PRINCE2 is an easily-tailored solution which can be used in any environment and divides projects into manageable stages.
It ensures the efficient control and use of resources, and regular process monitoring.
The 2009 version is significantly more flexible than it's predecessor.
• A planned, organised and controlled start, middle and end
• Regular reviews of progress against the plan and the business case
• Flexible decision points
• Automatic management control of deviations from the plan
• Stakeholder and management involvement at the right time and place
• Excellent communication channels between the project, project management and the rest of the organisation
The only book that is essential is the PRINCE2 Manual (Managing Successful Projects with PRINCE2) which is supplied with your training course (usually as part of the pre-course study pack)

PRINCE2 Agile is supplementary guidance for PRINCE2 Practitioners.
It explains how to blend the structure and discipline of PRINCE2 with the iterative approaches used in Agile and Scrum.
Most of Agile is a set of techniques. And there is no reason why many of those techniques cannot be used in a PRINCE2 environment. The bigger challenge is culture.
The 3 day PRINCE2 Agile Practitioner Course covers both the specific techniques and the broader agile philosophy.
We have an extensive range of courses suitable for business, IT and project professionals. This includes training in the areas of Prince2, MSP, APM, ITIL, Business Analysis, Microsoft Project and Software Testing.
Our most popular courses include Prince2 Foundation & Practitioner, MSP Practitioner, ITIL Foundation and ISTQB Software Testing Foundation. Contact a member of our sales team today to discuss your requirements.
