PRINCE2 Certification – Stand Out from the Crowd
By Paul Atkin
PRINCE2 certification is a great complement to your PMP and the 5th Edition of the PMBOK now specifically recommends PRINCE2 (Section 1.1). Having PRINCE2 Registered Practitioner on your LinkedIn profile shows you have taken your skills to the next level.
2 Levels of PRINCE2 Certification
You can gain PRINCE2 certification at the Foundation and Practitioner levels
Both the levels are based entirely on the manual: “Managing Successful Projects with PRINCE2.” There are many PRINCE2 books available but this only source the examiners use when setting the questions. To ensure consistency and international acceptance both exams are mapped to Blooms taxonomy of learning objectives.
- PRINCE2 Foundation Exam
The Foundation exam tests your knowledge and comprehension of PRINCE2 (Blooms Level 1 & 2). Most of the questions are straightforward multiple choice: 1 statement, 4 options – and you pick the correct option.
