The PRINCE2 certification scheme has 2 levels of qualification – the PRINCE2 Foundation qualification and the PRINCE2 Practitioner qualification.
The PRINCE2 Foundation training course and exam have no prerequisites, making it a great place to begin your training in PRINCE2 project management.
At the Foundational level, candidates will learn about those things that make PRINCE2 work as a project management solution. For example, part of the course explains the founding principles of PRINCE2 and how these inform, and the techniques and methods used by PRINCE2 project managers.
PRINCE2 Foundation training equips candidates with an understanding of terms and ideas they’re likely to encounter while working on a PRINCE2 project. Words like management products, risk management, product owner, stakeholders, etc.
The PRINCE2 Foundation exam tests your understanding of these ideas, validates your knowledge of PRINCE2 at the Foundation level, and allows PRINCE2 Foundation qualification holders to display their level of competency to employers and colleagues easily.
Those who pass the PRINCE2 Foundation exam acquire a PRINCE2 Foundation certification are then eligible to take the PRINCE2 Practitioner course and exam.
PRINCE2 Practitioner training teaches you how to take all those ideas and concepts taught in the Foundation course and apply them to the management of simple PRINCE2 projects.
PRINCE2 is not prescriptive in its approach to project management. It’s a very flexible and forgiving framework. PRINCE2 encourages its practitioners to adjust their approach to project management depending on the context and available resources. Much of the PRINCE2 Practitioner syllabus is dedicated to explaining which components of the PRINCE2 framework can and cannot be tailored to meet requirements.
PRINCE2 training can enhance your career prospects as a project manager or project management team member. Many organizations in both the public and private sectors use the PRINCE2 framework to ensure the success of their projects. PRINCE2 qualified professionals are always in demand in the UK and abroad. PRINCE2 certification is especially desirable in the UK, where PRINCE2 is used extensively in government and public services.
