Once you pass your PRINCE2® Foundation, you can proceed on to the advanced Practitioner course.
The PRINCE2® 2017 has small adjustments that do make a significant difference from its preceding version (PRINCE2® 2009).
The PRINCE2® 2017 has a superior focus on the PRINCE2 2009 principles and has greater precision on the connection between the themes and principles. It also heightens importance on tailoring to take account different situations, such as complicated industrial projects and those using Agile techniques. There is also streamlining of the themes guidance to adapt specific examples of tailoring as well as the practical application of the support, with various examples, suggestions, and ideas.
What is PRINCE2®?
PRINCE2® is a process based methodology, designed for effective Project Management. This qualification gives you the fundamental skills that you need to become a successful project manager, with a globally recognised qualification.
PRINCE2® stands for PRojects IN Controlled Environments. It focuses on control, configuration, quality, dependability, and productivity.
It was derived from the government specification of IT project management methodology, that was known as PROMPT II.
PRINCE2® was then born and was used outside of the industry after being redefined for more widespread project management!
PRINCE2® has developed one of the most popular and used methodologies in the world, and over 1,000,000 has taken their exams!

Preparing for an Exam
Do not sit the exam before you’re ready and feel confident. We recommend that you should only consider booking an official exam when you have achieved the following:-
- Worked through all the course sections and units at least once
- Completed the exam simulator tests and achieved a repeatable score of 50% / above.
Don’t feel nervous about the exam process. Our comprehensive eLearning course covers the exam syllabus in full and we will also provide you with exam hints and tips. Furthermore, we (unlike many competitors) pay extra for the premium remote proctoring service. With this ProctorU service you will be personally guided through the on-line exam process rather than having your exam being recorded and watched by an invigillator later. This means there are fewer opportunities for your exam to be disqualified because of in-advertant mistakes with in the exam process itself.
