Course Information

This 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® Practitioner examination.

The course covers the full PRINCE2® syllabus and therefore equips delegates to take the Practitioner examination, 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 the Pre-Course Workbook. Further self-study is also expected during the evenings of each course day.

Please Note: A prerequisite for the Practitioner Course is that delegates must have passed the PRINCE2 Foundation Course.

Frequently Asked Questions

When Will I Receive My PRINCE2 Exam Results?


Foundation Exam Results

If you have taken a classroom course, your paper-based exam will be marked by the trainer immediately following the exam and the provisional results are available within an hour.

If you have taken a Virtual Live course, your online exam will be marked automatically and your results will be immediately available upon completion. 

Practitioner Exam Results

If you have taken a classroom, your paper-based exam will be sent to the examination board (PeopleCert) for marking and your results will be available in 7-10 working days.

If you have taken a Virtual Live course, your online exam will be marked automatically and your results will be immediately available upon completion. 

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 an electronic copy of your pre-course reading material (which is taken from the official Managing Successful Projects with PRINCE2 manual). On the first day of the course you will receive a hard copy of the official manual which is yours to keep. 

For Virtual Live training courses, your hard copy of the manual will be sent to your delivery address prior to the course start date (UK based customers only). For customers located outside of the UK a PDF manual will be made available to yourself.  

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 (excluding ELC funded candidates as per MOD rules), 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 (excluding ELC funded candidates as per MOD rules) and free Wi-Fi.

Where do I sit the PRINCE2 exams?


For classroom based courses you take your paper-based PRINCE2 Foundation and/or Practitioner exams in the class during the course.

For Virtual-Live courses you take the online PRINCE2 Foundation and/or Practitioner exams in the virtual class during the course. 

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.
