Purpose of the Practitioner Qualification

The purpose of the Practitioner qualification is to confirm whether you have achieved sufficient understanding of how to apply and tailor PRINCE2 in a scenario situation. You should, with suitable direction, be able to start applying the method to a real project but may not be sufficiently skilled to do this appropriately for all situations. Your individual project management expertise, the complexity of the project and support provided, for the use of PRINCE2 in your work environment will all be factors that impact what you can achieve.

Performance Definition of a Successful Candidate

You should be able to apply and understand how to tailor PRINCE2 effectively to a project within an organization environment supporting PRINCE2. Specifically you should:-

  • Understand the relationships between the roles, management products, principles, themes, techniques and processes
  • Be able to apply the principles, themes and processes to a project
  • Be able to create and assess management products.

Exam Details

  • Objective testing
  • 8 questions – 10 question items per question, each worth one mark
  • 38 out of 68 marks required to pass or 55%
  • Two-and-a-half hours (150 minutes) duration, no additional reading time
  • Open book exam (official PRINCE2 manual only)

PRINCE2 Practitioner Exam

The practitioner exam is used to apply previous learning of the method to sample PRINCE2 Practitioner style exam questions. No learning of ‘new’ PRINCE2 topics should be expected, rather an enhancement of your existing knowledge.

You must already have reached the standard of knowledge required and have passed the Foundation exam. During the course, you will have an opportunity to try out the application of your existing PRINCE2 knowledge to a typical scenario, and related objective style test questions.

It can be expected that this preparation event will improve the likelihood of passing the Practitioner Exam.  However, success in the exam requires some basic analytical skills under time pressure, and this event is not intended to provide anything other than a high-level appreciation of these important skills together with useful exam strategy advice and guidance. Due to the intense nature of this course, you should plan to commit more than 3 hours evening study and review.

Course Includes:

  • Lunch and Refreshments
  • PRINC2 Manual
  • Exam Fees
  • Certificate on successful completion
  • PRINCE2 membership
