PRINCE2® method is owned by the UK Government (Cabinet Office) who have contracted the APM Group to accredit and administer the syllabus and examinations. PRINCE2® qualifications use a two-tier structure, PRINCE2® Foundation and PRINCE2® Practitioner level certification.
PRINCE2® FOUNDATION EXAMS
PRINCE2® Foundation Exam is the first of the two PRINCE2® examinations you will need to pass to become a registered PRINCE2® Practitioner. This exam aims to assess (Competency – Knowledge & Comprehension) whether a candidate would be able to act as an informed member of a project management team in a PRINCE2® project management environment. The candidate would need to show a solid understanding of the PRINCE2® themes, processes, principles, roles and techniques, in particular:-
• To identify the purpose and major content of all roles, the components, processes and themes as described in the manual.
• Identify the source or derivation of the management products, from their purpose and/or key content.
• Indicate the relationships between processes, products, roles and the management dimensions of a project.
The PRINCE2® Foundation examination comprises a one hour paper (60 minutes) consists of 75 questions in total which cover all 15 areas of the PRINCE2® Foundation syllabus. The Foundation exam uses objective test questions which require a candidate to choose a response to a question from a set of choices, only one of which is correct. Marks are not subtracted for incorrect answers. No support materials are allowed as it is a ‘closed-book’ exam.
The PRINCE2® Exam (foundation) question booklet contains 75 questions – 70 exam questions and 5 trial questions, each covering a different syllabus topic. Each of the 70 questions is worth 1 mark, but the trial questions are not scored. The pass mark is 35 (50%). Delegates are expected to answer all questions. There is however no indication of which questions are exam questions and which are trial.
PRINCE2® PRACTITIONER EXAMS
The PRINCE2® Practitioner Exam is the higher level of qualification in PRINCE2®. A prerequisite for sitting this exam is that the delegate must have sat and passed the PRINCE2® Foundation Exam. The Practitioner Exam aims to assess whether the candidate would be able to apply (Competency – Application, Analysis & Evaluation) PRINCE2® to the management of a project within a PRINCE2® environment. Having exhibited the competence required to satisfy the Foundation qualification, the delegate has to show they have the ability to apply and tailor PRINCE2® to address the needs and problems of a specific project scenario.
This is a 2 and half hour (150 minutes) objective test format examination. It is an open-book exam, which allows the candidate to refer to the official PRINCE2® manual during the exam. The Practitioner exam uses objective test questions which require a candidate to choose a response to a question from a set of choices, only one of which is correct. The exam will consist of 8 main questions each of 2 to 4 parts, with 10 marks per question, totalling 80 marks. The pass mark is 44 (55%).
A full PRINCE2® Practitioner simulation is available within the eLearning package which provides samples of the scenario, question styles and formats and provides a safe and encouraging environment to test and reform your understanding of the method.
Having passed the Practitioner Exam, your name will be entered onto a register of successful PRINCE2® Practitioners. To remain on the register, you will need to show continued competence in PRINCE2® by passing a re-registration examination every 3-5 years.
PRINCE2® RE-REGISTRATION EXAMS
The PRINCE2® Registered Practitioner qualification is valid for 5 years. Practitioners should be re-registered within 3-5 years of their original certification in order to demonstrate their commitment to professional development.
The PRINCE2® Re-registration exam follows the same format as the PRINCE2®Practitioner exam but the Question Booklet contains three questions, giving a total of 30 marks, to be answered within one hour. The PRINCE2® re-reg exam pass mark is 17 (55%). Each question will test one of the syllabus areas. All other guidance above on the PRINCE2® Practitioner Exam is also applicable to PRINCE2®Re-registration examinations.
*Please note, unless stated otherwise or included in package, our online courses only offer course completion certificates ( £10 fee) and in all cases official testing (at a charge made by testing centre) is required to gain officially certified recognised qualifications.
1. Estimated Time of study
The biggest advantage of an eLearning product is that each person takes it at their own pace and cognitive abilities, however as a guide we recommend about 20 hours of study for Foundation Level and about 40 hours for Practitioner well.
There are numerous reports that generally let the users know on their learning progression.
PRINCE2 Passport is accredited for both Foundation and Practitioner level study.
The PRINCE2 manual is strongly recommended for Practitioner level study and exam. The Practitioner Exam happens to be open book and the only book allowed is the PRINCE2 manual.
As for Foundation level study and exam, the PRINCE2 manual is optional as the learning content within Passport covers the syllabus/competencies required for foundation level in sufficient detail.
Consequently, we advise delegates that, if their focus at this stage is for a Foundation level qualification then to ignore the additional work/reading under the ‘References’ section and the ‘Practitioner level tests/exam simulations’ for now (and the module completion status), and return to it at a later date to progress to the Practitioner level (a Foundation pass is a pre-requisite to sit the Practitioner Exam). We provide the manual for your delegates at 60+P&P (RRP 75).
3. Exam Re-appearing Process:
PRINCE2 Practitioner status is generally valid for 5 years, the delegate is required to re-register between 3-5 years from the qualification to maintain the ‘PRINCE2 Registered Practitioner’ status and the entry in the ‘APMG Successful Candidate Register
If he has completed the PRINCE2 Practitioner 5 years ago then the eLearning pack + Practitioner Exam + manual will get him re-registered (Foundation exam is not required to be taken again).
If he has completed the PRINCE2 Foundation 5 years ago then he can progress to the Practitioner level with the eLearning pack + Practitioner Exam + manual.
