PRINCE2 Practitioner Re-Registration
The practitioner re-registration course is for those who need to renew their certificate. Currently, the certificate lasts for 5 years however, AXELOS will be updating the course during the middle of 2017 meaning that you can only hold the certificate for 3 years. If you are thinking about renewing your PRINCE2 qualification, we recommend that you do this soon so that you can hold the certificate for a longer time.
PRINCE2 2017 Update
During the beginning of this year, AXELOS have announced that they will be updating the PRINCE2 courses. There are quite a few changes which can affect delegates who already hold the certificate. The duration of holding the qualification will reduce from 5 to 3 years and the exam questions are also going to change. There will be fewer questions in the Foundation and practitioner exams but, the level of the questions will be more difficult. We recommend that you take the project management PRINCE2 course before this update happens because you will be able to hold the certificate for a longer time and be able to gain more knowledge and skills from the trainers as they already have a lot of experience with the current version of the PRINCE2 techniques. 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 copmonents. The latest version of the framework was released in 2009, which was more user-friendly than its predecessor was. In 2017, there will be an update for the PRINCE2 project management course where the exams will change 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 and the duration of holding the certificate will also change.
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, so this gives 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 log in, 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. This is because it is more interactive, 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 to your business.
