PRINCE2 Practitioner Exam (Version 2017)

- 68 multiple choice questions
- Open book exam, but only the official PRINCE2 manual can be used
- 2.5 hours duration
- 55% needed to pass so a score of 38 / 68 is required
Where do I take the PRINCE2 exam?
When you are ready to take the Practitioner exam, we will send you a prepaid exam voucher. You will be able to schedule the exam in the portal anytime you want 24/7. A webcam is required to identify yourself to the proctor with a photographic ID and then you can do the exam online from home.
What's the best way to prepare for the PRINCE2 exam?
Set your exam date first. Then work towards it. The material takes 40 hours study to get you to Practitioner level. So, work out how long that is going to take you and then book the exam. This way you have a clear target to aim at. This will help you stay on schedule
How long does my PRINCE2 qualification last?
The Practitioner qualification must be renewed every 3 years to maintain your status as an PRINCE2 Registered Practitioner.
Registered practitioners certified under version 2017 will have the option of adhering to the Axelos Membership program (Free the 1st year) and earn 20 CPD points every year to remain current.
What happens if I don't pass a PRINCE2 exam?
If you don't pass a PRINCE2 exam you can retake a different one. We'll send you your score and a question by question breakdown of your paper. You can retake the PRINCE2 exam online for an additional fee.
Some PMPs prefer to register for the regular course PRINCE2 Online Learning and take the Foundation exam. That way if they don’t pass the Practitioner exam, they will at least get the Foundation lifetime certificate attesting to knowledge of the PRINCE2 methodology.
Can I just take the PRINCE2 exams with you?
Sorry, no. We are an Accredited Training Organization for PRINCE2 so we are not permitted to offer just exams.
How many hours of study are required to pass the exam?
You need about 20 hours study at the Foundation level. And 20 hours more to get to Practitioner level.
How do PMPs get credit for prior learning?
If you are a current PMP or CAPM you are not required to take the PRINCE2 Foundation exam and go straight to the Practitioner level. You still need to gain Foundation level knowledge of PRINCE2 but it’s one less exam to worry about.
Do I need to log project management experience before the course?
PRINCE2 does not require you to log hours of project management experience before training. The PRINCE2 approach is a bit like learning to drive: you certify and then practice.
Can you compare PRINCE2 for PMPs online vs classroom?
Good question. PRINCE2 online learning is flexible - you can fit the learning around your schedule. You don't have to take time off to attend a course and you can work anywhere - at home, on the road, in hotels etc. Like our classroom training the material is fully accredited and will prepare you for the PRINCE2 Practitioner exam. Sometimes, online learning can be too flexible so you need to be disciplined and set yourself a clear schedule. If you are working in a corporate environment we recommend using mentors to keep you on track. PRINCE2 instructor led training is the quickest route to PRINCE2 certification - it is all done in 5 days. During a classroom event, you get access to a PRINCE2 approved trainer and many students say that the Trainer's insights and enthusiasm increase their understanding of the methodology. The opportunity to ask specific questions and get immediate answers is one of the biggest benefits of instructor led training. There are also invaluable networking opportunities so you can share and learn from other's experiences.
I am thinking about buying the PRINCE2 manual and self-studying?
If you are doing this for cost reasons, it’s a mistake. Our e-learning package includes everything and are built to save you money and trouble. Our fully accredited e-learning package includes online lessons, the latest practice exam questions, shipping, examination costs and proctor fees there is nothing else to pay. And you have a higher chance of passing your PRINCE2 exam. Self-study students have a lower exam pass rate than those who have taken online or instructor led training.
How many PDUs do I get for this course?
PMPs can claim 40 PDUs at the PMI for the PRINCE2 for PMPs Online Learning course. (20 Technical PDUs, 10 Leadership PDUs, 10 Strategic PDUs)
