PRINCE2 Certification Exams
Are you seeking an internationally recognised project management certification?

Does your company seek assurance that project managers have the required knowledge and competencies to manage a project according to best practices?

PRINCE2 courses increase your ability to manage projects and associated risks more effectively.

The two PRINCE2 certification levels are: PRINCE2 Foundation and PRINCE2 Practitioner.

Foundation certification demonstrates an understanding of how the method operates. The Practitioner certification demonstrates competency in applying and adapting the method to different project situations and scenarios.

Foundation certification is achieved by successfully completing the PRINCE2 Foundation exam. This exam is completed at the end of a 3 day Foundation training course. Practitioner certification is achieved by successfully completing the PRINCE2 Practitioner exam. This exam is completed at the end of the 2 day Practitioner training course.
