PRINCE2® Qualifications

Once you know about the PRINCE2® Qualifications, you can decide which one you would like to opt for in order to enhance your career.

PRINCE2® Foundation

This Foundation qualification teaches the basic PRINCE2® principles and terminology. This qualification will help you to become an informed member of a team doing project management by using the PRINCE2® methodology. This PRINCE2® Qualification can be studied on your own or through a tutor led course. It can also be done as a prerequisite for the next level, which is the PRINCE2® Practitioner course.

PRINCE2® Practitioner

With this Practitioner qualification you can apply its learning to the managing of a project that is running within an environment that supports PRINCE2®. In fact, you can even tune PRINCE2® so that it is able to address the specific needs of a project. This PRINCE2® Qualification allows you to understand the relationship between the principles, themes and processes of PRINCE2®.
But you can get the PRINCE2® Practitioner qualification only after passing

  • the Foundation exam or the Project Management Professional (PMP)® exam, or
  • the Certified Associate in Project Management (CAPM)®, or
  • the IPMA Level A (Certified Projects Director), or
  • IPMA Level B® (Certified Senior Project Manager), or
  • IPMA Level C® (Certified Project Manager), or
  • IPMA Level D® (Certified Project Management Associate) exam.

Only the current certifications will be considered here.
It is important to note here that individual IPMA chapters will be having local interpretations of all these certificates. You need to understand this in detail so that you are able to sit for the exam that suits your specific needs.
