See FAQs...

What is PRINCE2 project management?

The PRINCE2 (Projects In Controlled Environments) qualification is a globally recognised project management methodology.

The PRINCE2 methodology is in the public domain and provides best practice guidance and structure for project management across all industries.

Initially developed by the Office of Government and Commerce in the UK, PRINCE2 remains popular within both the public and private sectors. PRINCE2 is now the standard project management methodology in the UK, with a strong influence in Europe, Australia and the Middle East.


How do I get the PRINCE2 certification?

The PRINCE2 is divided into two separate certifications: PRINCE2 Foundation and PRINCE2 Practitioner.

The PRINCE2 Foundation will teach you the principles and terminology found within the methodology. To achieve it, you’ll need to study for and pass the PRINCE2 2017 Foundation Exam.

Once you hold the PRINCE2 Foundation, you’ll be eligible to take the PRINCE2 2017 Practitioner Exam. As the Practitioner is more advanced, additional study will be required before undertaking this exam.


How much does the PRINCE2 certification cost?

To find out the cost of this accelerated PRINCE2 course and others, visit our prices page.


How much does the PRINCE2 exam cost?

People Cert are the accrediting body for the PRINCE2 certification and provide the option to book the exams outside of an official course. When purchasing your exams outside of this accelerated course, you will pay:

  • PRINCE2 2017 Foundation: £299
  • PRINCE2 2017 Practitioner: £414

Both of these exams are included on this accelerated and all-inclusive 3-day course.


Does Firebrand offer online PRINCE2 certification and training?

Firebrand does not provide online training for the PRINCE2 certification. Instead, Firebrand’s PRINCE2 course provides students with an opportunity to learn in-person from expert project management instructors.


Where can I find PRINCE2 Foundation and Practitioner PDFs?

To prepare you for this accelerated course, you’ll be sent PDF pre-reading material. You’ll also receive:

  • Managing Successful Projects with PRINCE2 2017 Edition (book)
  • 2 Foundation mock exams and marking schemes
  • 2 Practitioner mock exams and marking schemes

Who is the PRINCE2 certification authority?

PRINCE2 was initially developed as a standard by the UK government. In 2013, ownership was transferred to AXELOS Ltd, who now act as the certification authority.


What are the benefits of a PRINCE2 certification?

The PRINCE2 is a globally recognised and established certification, providing a common project management vocabulary that can be used across all industries.

The PRINCE2 knowledge you’ll learn on this course is the best practice for project management across the world. It even integrates well with other methodologies, like Agile.

The PRINCE2 is also an ideal introduction to a career in project management, teaching a fundamental and flexible approach to project management.

Plus, project management professionals holding the PRINCE2 Practitioner earn a UK median salary of £52,500, according to data from TJobsWatch.


What is a PRINCE2 boot camp?

Firebrand’s accelerated PRINCE2 course is the world’s fastest way to achieve the Foundation and Practitioner certifications.

Accelerated training is fast, but this is not a crash course – you’ll learn from a real-world project management expert and study everything you need to know to pass the exams.


Does Firebrand offer a PRINCE2 weekend course?

Firebrand regularly run accelerated PRINCE2 courses that commence on Friday and finish on Sunday. You could get certified with only one day out of the office.


Does this course include a PRINCE2 pass guarantee?

Every Firebrand course includes a Certification Guarantee. If you don’t pass, return for free and you’ll only pay for accommodation and incidental fees.


Should I take PMP or PRINCE2, which is better?

The PRINCE2 and PMP certification are both well-known and highly respected project management certifications. They’ll both boost your project management skills but vary significantly.

Created in the U.S., the PMP is the primary project management certification for North America. The PMP certification is built around PMI’s Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBoK) and requires five years of project management experience as a prerequisite.

The PRINCE2 was created in the UK and remains the more popular project management certification across Europe. As the PMP requires significant project management experience, the PRINCE2 also remains the preferred option for entry-level project managers.


Are there example PRINCE2 foundation exam questions?

Yes. Firebrand offer free PRINCE2 Foundation practice exam questions.

See Exam Track...
