The purpose of the Practitioner qualification is to confirm whether the candidate has achieved sufficient understanding of how to apply and tailor PRINCE2® in a scenario situation. A successful Practitioner candidate should, with suitable direction, be able to start applying the method to a real project but may not be sufficiently skilled to do this appropriately for all situations. Their individual project management expertise, complexity of the project and the support provided for the use of PRINCE2® in their work environment will all be factors that impact what the Practitioner can achieve.
The PRINCE2® Practitioner examination is an open- book objective test examination based on a given scenario and lasting 150 minutes. There are 8 questions each worth 10 marks, making a total of 80 marks available. The pass mark is 55% (44 marks required to pass out of 80 available).
This course is aimed at project managers, project management consultants and aspiring project managers. It is also relevant to other key staff involved in the design, development and delivery of projects who are required, or wish, to have a greater depth of knowledge of the method.
Delegates must have attained the Foundation qualification, or achieved Foundation level qualification in a previous version. Delegates that did not complete their Foundation course with us may not have all the necessary knowledge expected of attendees for this course. In particular, this may apply to those looking to renew their Practitioner accreditation in a previous version, but can also apply to those who took Foundation courses with other training organisations, online or CD-ROM based learning and self-study. In these situations a more detailed refresher may be required, in which case delegates should book the Combined Foundation and Practitioner course.
In addition, delegates should allow for around 2 to 3 hours of evening work prior to taking the Practitioner examination. This is to finalize exam preparation and confirm understanding in any areas of uncertainty.
