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 Foundation examination.

The course equips delegates to take the Foundation 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.

What Our Customers Say

Truly a seamless booking process with excellent support throughout which was then followed by an excellent course with a dedicated trainer who worked consistently to break the complex course subject down into relevant sections and areas for all delegates. Truly one of the best training courses I have been on in over 30 years - cannot recommend NILC and Tony Perks enough. Well done and thank you.

Mr Brookbank

I attended the PRINCE2 Practitioner training course. Tony is so knowledgeable on the topic and is clearly passionate about training and coaching people in the Project Management arena. I highly recommend this, especially if you learn best with practical examples and real life application. Thank you Tony! See you for the Agile and Programme Management courses later this year.

Dana Wiesner

I have just completed a week long training course with NILC Training to prepare me for my PRINCE2 foundation and practitioner exams. The course was held virtually via Teams, supported by material sent via email. The course was excellent and Tony made sure all participants had the best opportunity to learn and prepare for the exams. I would be confident in booking future courses with NILC Training and would highly recommend to anyone looking to sit their PRINCE2 exams.

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 or Online course, your online exam will be marked automatically and your results will be immediately available upon completion.

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 emailed to you within 7-10 days. If you have taken a Virtual Live or Online course, your online exam will be marked automatically and your results will be immediately available upon completion. 

Will I receive any pre-course reading?

Are there any sample exam papers?

How can I take the PRINCE2 course?

NILC offer all our PRINC2 courses as classroom courses either at one of our training locations or at your company premises, live-virtual training via Zoom or Teams, or online self-paced courses. 

Are there any additional costs to the course price?

We included everything you need to become fully qualified at then end of taking one of our PRINCE2 training courses. This includes a 5-day training course, Foundation examination which is taken on day 3 of the course, Practitioner examination which is taken on day 5 of the course, official hard-copy of the PRINCE2 course manual, training course materials such as slides, diagrams and sample examination papers. 

Are there any prerequisites for PRINCE2?

NILC's PRINCE2 courses are open to everyone and there is no prerequisites for Foundation level. For Practitioner level you must have passed the Foundation level examination.

When do I take the PRINCE2 exams?

For classroom based courses you take your paper-based examinations in class during the course. The PRINCE2 Foundation exam will be sat on Day 3 and the Practitioner exam will be sat on Day 5. For Virtual-Live or online courses you take the exam online. As virtual courses follow the same structure as our classroom courses, The PRINCE2 Foundation exam will be sat on Day 3 and the Practitioner exam will be sat on Day 5.

What jobs can I get with PRINCE2?

PRINCE2 is a highly respected project management qualification and is useful for many job roles. Some of the most popular job roles which require this qualification are Project Manager, Project Support, Project Administrator, Project Coordinator, Project Analyst, Operations Manager, Program Manager and Project Director. 

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.
