You’ll be industry-ready and receive ongoing help throughout your exam preparation and certification process.

  4. Utilize Skillier’s comprehensive exam support, which includes practise papers, one-on-one mentoring, and more. To gain a thorough understanding of the PRINCE2 methodology and concepts, read the study materials. One of the most crucial reference tools for your preparation is ‘Managing Successful Projects with PRINCE2. 6th Edition.’ Extensive practise is required.
  5. Schedule the exam using PeopleCert if you’ve decided to self-study. If you have registered with Skillier, we will arrange the exam for you at a time that is convenient for you. You can take the test at a Training Organization near you or online using PeopleCert Online Proctoring. All you’ll need is a computer with a Windows or Mac operating system and an internet connection.
  6. If you’re taking the exam in a local training facility, you’ll need to bring the following items: (1) a printout of the exam schedule from PeopleCert; (2) proof of identity, such as a passport or driver’s licence.
  7. When you finish your test, you’ll receive your preliminary results on your computer screen right away. PeopleCert will send you your official results/e-certificate within 2 business days. You’ll be able to examine your results and print your certificate after that.
  8. After two business days, you can get your certificate from your PeopleCert profile. You’re now a PRINCE®2 Practitioner, ready to help your company achieve its goals!

There are different PRINCE2 certification offered that include 

  • PRINCE2 foundation 
  • PRINCE2 Practitioner 
  • Prince 2 Agile

PRINCE2 Agile is not the same as PRINCE2, which was developed separately by Axelos Ltd to assist Agile project managers in effectively implementing Agile projects.

The scale of the project has no influence on using PRINCE2. Small projects can be effective if PRINCE2 standards are applied selectively. On the other side, a long number of PRINCE2 rules can be followed for large projects. In a nutshell, PRINCE2 is a scalable, highly customizable, and systematic process-based project management technique that can be used for any project.

It is valid for 30 days from the date of issuing. You must book your exam within that time frame, or you will have to use your exam code to redeem your exam voucher again.
