PRINCE2 is a project management methodology that has been used all around the world. Obtaining a certificate proving your knowledge of this approach might help you advance in your professional career and even get you a job you really want. The vast majority of Project Manager job advertisements include a credential from one of three top institutes that develop project management techniques in the “required” or “additional skills” areas. PRINCE2 is the most widely used technique in Poland.
Unlike the other techniques (IPMA, PMI), the candidate for the certificate does not need to have any prior project management experience.
The PRINCE2 Foundation credential is based on a single-choice test. Each applicant gets 60 minutes to respond to 75 questions, with 5 of them being upgraded. The methodology’s owner can then test additional questions that may be added to the collection of examination questions in the future. To earn the PRINCE2 Foundation certificate, you must score 50% on the exam, which translates to 35 right answers. The test is focused on a candidate’s theoretical understanding. It assesses your knowledge and comprehension of ideas from the official handbook. The Foundation certificate is valid for an indefinite amount of time. Members of project teams, support teams, supervision teams, and service change teams are primarily assigned to this level.
Only PRINCE2 Foundation certificate holders can take the Practitioner test. The PRINCE2 Practitioner credential verifies your competence to apply methodology principles in practice, as well as your capacity to adapt to project circumstances. Project Managers and those in charge of adopting PRINCE2 in their organizations should take the Practitioner level. It is not required to have the prior project management expertise to take the test. It’s important to note that the exam assesses our knowledge of technique and our ability to comprehend it effectively. As a result, you must respond to those questions using freshly obtained information from the manual, rather than your personal expertise from the creation of numerous projects. This certificate is valid for five years and should be renewed every three to five years following the last exam. Recertification is done through an exam that lasts an hour and consists of three blocks of ten questions each.
A candidate must pass the Foundation test before taking the Practitioner exam. It suggests we are familiar with the fundamentals of theory. If we have any concerns or any components of the approach are unclear to us, we should return to the handbook and study a certain chapter again. If you took the Foundation test more than a month ago, Highly recommend going over the full manual again to refresh your grasp of the theoretical fundamentals.
The Practitioner test is an open book exam, which means we may only utilize the official PRINCE2 handbook throughout the exam. It’s important taking the effort to properly “tag” your handbook. Here are a few sites that you may tag:
According to the exam, proper manual preparation is necessary. The prior work with the handbook increases the exam’s use of it, allowing you to access important information and definitions.
We will be asked the following kind of questions throughout the exam:
It is important to practice extensively in order to prepare for the exam. The more tests you do, the more you will understand the questions and the exam’s specificity, as well as your ability to organize and manage your time during the exam. On the Internet, you may find examples of good exams on the following websites:
The PRINCE2 Practitioner course is 90% excellent examinations, which are completed over two days with the help of fellow students and a coach. In contrast to the Foundation course, which is solely focused on acquiring new information. If we want to be confident of the course’s quality, we should enroll in one that is organized by recognized businesses or ATOs. Here you may look for a company’s accreditation:
The range of prices is PLN 2 000 to PLN 4 000.
The test will take 150 minutes and will consist of 80 questions. It’s a good idea to familiarize yourself with a scenario and an answer sheet before taking the exam. After that, you can attempt to solve eight fields in 15 minutes each. This type of preparation includes setting aside 25 minutes extra time to revisit any tough questions and double-check the answer sheet.
Answers should be marked on a specially prepared sheet. It is worth remembering that tests are checked by a computer. Therefore, we have to mark at least 80% of the square next to an appropriate answer. We have to be careful not to go beyond the square, as in this case, the machine can also not include our answer.
The examination is administered as a single-choice test. It is made up of eight fields that each correspond to a scenario. The examinee must score at least 44 out of 80 potential points to receive a good result (55% correct answers). The exam lasts 150 minutes and is available in a hundred different languages, including Polish and English.
We receive three types of materials during the exam: a scenario explaining the case study, a list of questions, and an answer sheet.
They practiced an organization that implements a project, its business case, the project’s main and secondary objectives, and the project’s projected outcomes. Additional material for one or more questions can also be found in a scenario folder. Additional information is only included in questions if it is explicitly stated – in bold – in the question. Questions that don’t explicitly state that the additional information should be used can be constructed in such a manner that using the notes results in a bad response.
A question folder comprises eight questions from various domains of methodology. Each block of questions includes ten additional detailed questions as well as information about a certain subject area. Each question is worth one point if you answer correctly. The maximum number of points you may receive is 80, while the minimum amount required to pass the exam is 55 percent accurate answers or 44 points.
Only an answer sheet allows you to indicate your responses to each question. Unless the instructions state otherwise, you must mark one answer for each question. The question will not be approved if we mark more than one right answer and the question’s instruction does not specifically say that we should pick additional responses.
