PRINCE2 (PRojects IN Controlled Environments) began its life as PROMPT II. In 1989, the framework was adopted by the British Central Computer and Telecommunications Agency (CCTA), reworked, and renamed ‘PRINCE.’ It was later developed further for use across the UK public sector. This version was dubbed ‘PRINCE2.’
PRINCE2 is a generic project management framework designed in consultation with roughly 150 European organisations. PRINCE2 retains its focus on the final product but can be tailored to suit different project environments.
Over the past two decades, PRINCE2 has undergone several revisions to simplify the method. The latest update to PRINCE2 (2017) focused on improving the method’s scalability and flexibility while maintaining a consistent approach – satisfying the requirements of primary stakeholders and the project board.
No other project management qualification can boast the history, research, practitioner feedback, and institutional backing culminating in the PRINCE2 methodology. PRINCE2 is time-tested and has proven its ability to deliver consistent value across all industries.
PRINCE2 isn’t just a project management framework. It’s also a training and certification scheme, providing education and qualifications to tens of thousands of project management professionals worldwide.

PRINCE2 Agile teaches PRINCE2 project managers how to adapt their approach to project management with the addition of modern agile tools and techniques. If you don’t already have a project management qualification or work experience as a project manager, it is recommend you start with a PRINCE2 course.
Many colleges and universities in the United Kingdom (e.g. The Open University) offer a variety of agile and project management qualifications and courses.
It may seem a good idea to take a more in-depth course, lasting many months as opposed to a few days. But, as experts in the field of project management, we know that employers value work experience far more than qualifications or degrees.
That’s why we always recommend earning your desired qualification as quickly as possible, increasing your chances of being invited to an interview so that you can start accruing industry-specific and practical project management experience ASAP.
If you’re an experience project manager and are interested in continued professional development, a university course may offer lengthy explanations of project management theory, but only our professional project management trainers, with decades of applied knowledge in project management can teach you practical, functional tools and skills that you can then use to manage your own projects.
PRINCE2 isn’t just a project management methodology. It’s also a valuable training and certification scheme.
Certified PRINCE2 Practitioners must dedicate time and effort towards furthering their professional development and education to maintain their qualifications.
PRINCE2 Foundation level certifications are valid for life and never expire.
PRINCE2 Practitioner level certifications, however, will expire after 3 years.
Maintaining your Practitioner certification requires that you re-take the Practitioner exam (you don’t have to re-take the whole Practitioner course) OR maintain your certification through accumulating Continuing Professional Development (CPD) points and joining the AXELOS membership programme.
PRINCE2 is an industry-standard. Many see it as the most basic requirement necessary to enter the field of project management. A PRINCE2 course is a great way to familiarise yourself with project management fundamentals and learn how to apply project management theory to your work.
While there are several different project management qualifications, none are as accessible and flexible as PRINCE2. That’s because PRINCE2 focuses on applying soft skills and a little bit of logic to everyday problems faced by project managers.
We recommend PRINCE2 if:
- You want to work as a project manager in a PRINCE2 project environment
- You work alongside PRINCE2 project managers and want to learn skills and terminology that will help improve your productivity
- You’re a recent graduate and want to be hired in your first project management role, be it the management of small projects, as part of a development team, or in a role that supports the work of PRINCE2 project managers
- You currently work as a project manager and want to improve your marketability in the project management profession, increasing your chance of promotion or being hired in a similar role.
The cost of a PRINCE2 certification varies with your choice of training provider and preferred course-delivery method.
Generally speaking, online self-study courses will be cheaper than virtual or in-person classes.
You might also opt to buy second-hand course materials. For example, purchasing a used copy of the PRINCE2 manual may save you a little bit of money.
Many accredited course providers offer payment plans to help spread the cost of a PRINCE2 course over several months.
