Course Information

This PRINCE2® Foundation and Practitioner course is designed to provide delegates with a working understanding of the PRINCE2® structured project management method. It will enable them to use the method when working within a PRINCE2® project and to pass the PRINCE2® Foundation and Practitioner examinations.

The course covers the full PRINCE2® syllabus and therefore equips delegates not just to take the Foundation and Practitioner examinations, but also to understand the broad range of PRINCE2®’s principles, key themes, processes and techniques. The aim during the course is to achieve an effective balance between exam success and the need for skills transfer.

Delegates are required to undertake preliminary study using Pre-Course Workbook. Further self-study is also expected during the evenings of each course day.

Frequently Asked Questions

Find answers to the questions we get asked the most about PRINCE2.
When Will I Receive My PRINCE2 Exam Results?


Foundation Exam Results

If you have taken PRINCE2® Foundation, your exam will be marked by the trainer immediately following the exam and the provisional results are available within an hour.

Practitioner Exam Results

If you have taken PRINCE2® Practitioner, your exam will be sent to the examination board (Peoplecert) for marking and your results will be available in 7-10 working days.

Are there any sample exam papers?


Yes. As part of your Foundation and Practitioner training you will be given access to 2 full sample Foundation exam papers and 2 full sample Practitioner exam papers. 

Will I receive any pre-course reading?


Yes. Approximately 3 weeks prior to the course start date you will receive the official Managing Successful Projects with PRINCE2 – manual and a pre-course reading list which instructs you which pages of the manual you should be familiar with prior to the course start date. 

Are there any additional costs to the course price?


No. Everything is included in the course price. This includes your tuition, course materials, official PRINCE2 manual, sample exams, pre-course study, exam fees and certification. If you’re doing a classroom-based training course at one of NILC’s venues, you’ll also receive unlimited tea, coffee, water and free Wi-Fi.

Where do I sit the PRINCE2 exams?


You take your paper-based PRINCE2 Foundation and/or Practitioner exams in the class during the course. Please note some providers send you home to sit the exam on a computer as they say it provides you with more flexibility however it is just to save the provider money. 

Are there any prerequisites for PRINCE2?


What version are your PRINCE2 courses?


All of NILC’s PRINCE2 courses follow PRINCE2 2017. This is the most up-to-date version of PRINCE2 and represents the first major revision of PRINCE2 since 2009.

What happens if I fail a PRINCE2 exam?


If you fail to pass either of the PRINCE2 examinations, we will offer you support to give you the best opportunity to pass at the next attempt. Both Foundation and Practitioner exams can be sat on their own without having to retake the whole course (as long as you originally took the course with us). Don’t worry if you do fail one of the exams, they are designed to be a challenge - if everyone passed first time, then it wouldn’t signify a good exam.

Our high pass rates for both Foundation and Practitioner exams allows us to be confident that you will pass at the first attempt providing you complete the pre-course reading, attend the course every day, undertake the trial questions, and conduct the 1-2 hour daily homework during the course.

Do the PRINCE2 qualifications expire?


PRINCE2 certificates never expire. However, you are only able to call yourself a registered PRINCE2 Practitioner for 3 years after taking (and passing) the Practitioner exam. After that period, if you want to continue to call yourself a registered PRINCE2 Practitioner, then you must either sit the Practitioner exam again or follow through the AXELOS membership programme to keep your registered status.
