PRINCE2® Certification - The Official Qualification Plan

Your path to PRINCE2 certification consists of two levels, taught in parallel using a classic or agile approach. Find out now which qualification is best for you – and give your career a new, effective boost.

PRINCE2® Foundation – Comprehensive Basic Training

With PRINCE2 Foundation, you will learn the basics of project management according to the PRINCE2 framework. This course will give you an overview of the various principles, roles and functions. You will internalize the standardized use of language and the necessary technical terminology. In addition, after taking the official exam, you will be demonstrably able to work effectively in or with a PRINCE2 project team.

PRINCE2® Practitioner – Project Management Expert

After successfully completing the PRINCE2 Foundation component, you will receive training to become a Practitioner. This qualification enables you to manage PRINCE2 projects yourself and to adapt the method to your individual working environment in a variety of ways. A generous practical component during the training ensures that you will feel confident in your role. As a Practitioner, you will be equipped in every respect to lead your projects to success in a goal-oriented manner. You can also take the course if you already hold one of the following certifications outside the PRINCE2 plan:

PRINCE2® Agile Foundation – Basic Training for Agile Environments

The PRINCE2 Agile variant combines scalable, process-oriented and transparent project management with the flexibility and responsiveness of agile best practices. In the Agile Foundation course, you will gain comprehensive knowledge about the essential principles, roles and functions of PRINCE2. At the same time, you will obtain an overview of agile concepts such as Scrum or Kanban and learn how to smoothly combine the two worlds.

PRINCE2® Agile Practitioner – Agile Project Management Expert

As a PRINCE2® Agile Practitioner, you will deepen the knowledge you received from the Agile Foundation. At this level, you will gain practical experience in how to effectively manage agile projects with PRINCE2. For successful certification, you should first complete the PRINCE2 Agile Foundation course. With the official PRINCE2 Agile Practitioner certification, you demonstrate that you can truly tailor and adapt the methods you have learned to agile environments.
