Main changes include a new edition of PRINCE2®  guidance and updates of both the foundation and practioner examinations. There are quite a few changes which can affect delegates who already hold the certificate. The duration of holding the qualification has reduced from 5 to 3 years and the examination questions have also changed. There are fewer questions in the Foundation and practitioner exams however the difficulty level of questions has increased. The pass marks for the examinations has also increased. If you would like to know any more information about the PRINCE2® 2017 update, please get in touch and we will be happy to assist you through the changes.

 

What is a PRINCE2® Training Course? 

PRINCE2® dates back to the 1970’s where it was originally called PROMPT II. Simpact Systems Ltd. This methodology was split into seven different stages. Later, in the 1980's, the framework was updated and renamed PRINCE®. The UK government heavily updated it. One of the main areas of improvement was the course structure. In 1996, it was again updated and renamed PRINCE2®.  They reviewed the original framework and decided to remove various components. A further version of the framework was released in 2009, which was more user-friendly than it's predecessor was. In 2017, the latest version of PRINCE2® was anounced. This update focuses on altering examinations to suit more of an agile methodology. The techniques to adapt to different environments are increasingly becoming more important, and this is why the method has been changed. In addition, the exams, pass marks and the duration of holding the certificate has changed.

How Can I Learn PRINCE2® Training? 

We provide a wide range of methods in order to suit a range of needs including classroom, online and onsite. Our most popular method is classroom training. This is because the course is delivered through a range of state of the art locations on a global scale. Another reason why classroom-based courses are such a popular option is because our expert instructors are highly experienced in teaching and implementing their respected frameworks, thus giving you the confidence and skills needed to pass the course.

PRINCE2® Online training allows people like busy business individuals who don’t have time to attend a course full time, to take the course from the comfort of their own home. The PRINCE2® course content is delivered through an online portal, which you are given access to once you have purchased the course. You will be given 90 days access once you login, which gives you plenty of time to complete the course. It has been proven that online training has a better retention rate compared to other methods, due to its increased level of interaction, which promotes better memory.

Onsite training is highly suited to organisations as the course takes place in the working environment. This option is focused specifically on larger groups in offices or venues. This course is still delivered through our highly experienced instructors and they will allow you to ask any questions you might have along the way. The trainer will travel to your venue and deliver the course as if it was a classroom but instead at your business location.

 

What are the Benefits of Taking a PRINCE2® Qualification? 

There are a variety of reasons why your organisation should take a PRINCE2® course. One of them is that the methodology hasn’t been tailored toward any specific type of business so it can be used by any organisation in any environment. The course has also gained such popularity that it is fast becoming an industry standard. This means that some job roles require having a PRINCE2® certified qualification therefore making it easier to find a new job that can increase your salary and position. The main reasons those who take the course give the following reasons;

  • Pursuing business validations
  • Outlining a directorial structure for Project Managers
  • Planning a product-based pathway
  • Identifying the implications of breaking a project down into adaptable stages
  • Applying suitable stages to enforce flexibility to a project

“We used Datrix to arrange on-site training for 16 staff in the PRINCE2® certification. The pre-course arrangements went smoothly and they were very helpful when we had a lot of change of delegates. The trainer, Mark, was very knowledgeable and made the course enjoyable for all concerned. Everyone passed both the Foundation and Practitioner exams”
