prince2 qualification and prince2 exam

World Exclusive

Firebrand is the only training provider in the world to offer both the Foundation and Practitioner certifications in just three days. This includes sitting both exams.

There's not much that you can achieve in three days. You could walk the entire length of the Thames, or maybe count to 1,000,000 (we worked them both out). Or you could set yourself on your way to a £50,000 salary, as reported by IT Jobs Watch.

We have now certified more than 1,500 students on our PRINCE2 training course. We've listened to their feedback, and this has helped us develop this three-day course. We were challenged to make the course more 'Firebrand-like' (super fast), while maintaining all of the curriculum content from the five-day course.

The real-world case studies remain woven throughout the entire course, and we have been able to remove some exercises that were not needed in the latest curriculum. Fear not, our exclusive lecture, lab, review process remains, to ensure that you learn everything required 40% faster than anywhere else. You will gain two whole days to spend on more work or family time!

Tried and tested

Before the PRINCE2 training course was launched, we ran a beta version. During this period we had a pass rate of 88% and a student feedback score of 91%.

Officially Accredited by APMG

When officially accrediting the course, Richard Pharro, CEO of APMG, said this:
APMG recognises the importance of training organisations continually innovating their offering to meet the changing needs of delegates. It is encouraging to see Firebrand Training has found a way to deliver the Foundation and Practitioner certification in just three days, whilst maintaining the same high quality.

Practical work includes creating process models, completing tasks related to specific elements of the method such as how the themes help to apply the principles as well as a variety of objective test questions. Many tasks are designed to help delegates ‘link’ the four integrated elements of PRINCE2®; “principles”, “processes”, “themes” and “tailoring”.

Frequently asked questions

Q. What is PRINCE2 project management?

A. The PRINCE2 qualification is a globally recognised project management methodology. It stands for Projects In Controlled Environments and was originally developed by the Office of Government Commerce in the UK as part of a group of products. PRINCE2 is now the standard in the UK, with a strong influence in Europe, Australia and the Middle East.

Q. What are the benefits of a PRINCE2 qualification?

A. Gaining a PRINCE2 qualification will greatly improve your career development. You will make fewer mistakes, learn from those made, and most importantly save money and effort. The average salary of a PRINCE2 professional is over £50,000.

Q. Are there any example PRINCE2 foundation exam questions?

A. Yes. We offer free PRINCE2 foundation practice exam questions and answers.

Q. What do I need in order to pass the PRINCE2 practitioner exam?

On the Practitioner exam you need to achieve 55% or higher. This means you must get 44 marks or more out of a possible 80. This proves you have advanced knowledge of the PRINCE2 methodology that the Practitioner exam requires. We have maintained our leading PRINCE2 practitioner pass rate while accelerating the course to just three days.
