What will a PRINCE2® qualification do for me?

A PRINCE2® Certification will boost your confidence when it comes to managing projects. It will also enhance your employment prospects as PRINCE2® training is recognised worldwide. The training and groundwork that PRINCE2® provide are second to none and will greatly improve all project management skills.

Which countries recognise PRINCE2® training?

Over a million exams have been taken globally for PRINCE2® certifications, making it the most popular project management methodology. PRINCE2® training and certification are recognised globally.

What’s new in PRINCE2® 7th edition?

The PRINCE2® 6th edition and the upcoming 7th edition of the project management certification differ.

In the 6th edition, there were notable updates made from its predecessor. It added more information about tailoring to the PRINCE2® Guidance (PRINCE2 manual) and updated the syllabus to include tailoring and agile methodologies. The exams were also updated to reflect these changes.

AXELOS will launch the 7th edition in September 2023. The new PRINCE2® 7 exam addresses changes in the project management sector and adapts to evolving working practices and technologies.

How do CAPM vs PRINCE2® Foundation Certificates Differ?

The Certified Associate in Project Management (CAPM) and PRINCE2® Foundation certificates offer different approaches to project management. CAPM, governed by the PMI, is process-oriented and focuses on the knowledge and skills necessary to manage projects effectively. It follows the PMI’s Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK) Guide.

On the other hand, PRINCE2® (Projects in Controlled Environments) is a methodology that emphasises a detailed, step-by-step guide for managing projects. It is product-based and divides each project into manageable stages.

In terms of geographical popularity, being a certified project management associate is highly recognised in the USA, Canada, and Australia, while PRINCE2® is popular in the UK and Europe.

Does PRINCE2® ensure successful projects?

No! PRINCE2® does not provide any guarantees of success. It gives the project management framework for projects, and if applied correctly, it should increase the probability of project success.

Can PRINCE2® be used for non-IT projects?

Yes, it can. Unlike the first version of PRINCE, PRINCE2® is designed to suit any project.

Where can I sit PRINCE2® Exams?

PRINCE2® exams can be taken at an accredited training company. At Althris we provide online examinations for PRINCE2® Foundation and Practitioner exam certifications.
