Frequently asked questions

Q. What is PRINCE2 project management?

A. The PRINCE2 qualification is a globally recognised project management methodology. It stands for Projects In Controlled Environments and was originally developed by the Office of Government Commerce in the UK as part of a group of products. PRINCE2 is now the standard in the UK, with a strong influence in Europe, Australia and the Middle East.

Q. What are the benefits of a PRINCE2 qualification?

A. Gaining a PRINCE2 qualification will greatly improve your career development. You will make fewer mistakes, learn from those made, and most importantly save money and effort. The average salary of a PRINCE2 professional is over £50,000.

Q. Are there any example PRINCE2 foundation exam questions?

A. Yes. We offer free PRINCE2 foundation practice exam questions and answers.

Q. What do I need in order to pass the PRINCE2 practitioner exam?

A. The PRINCE2 Foundation is a prerequisite to taking the PRINCE2 Practitioner exam. Therefore you must pass the Foundation exam after day one of the course, to progress onto the Practitioner exam. On the Practitioner exam you need to achieve 55% or higher. This means you must get 44 marks or more out of a possible 80. This proves you have advanced knowledge of the PRINCE2 methodology that the Practitioner exam requires. We have maintained our leading PRINCE2 practitioner pass rate while accelerating the course to just three days.
