Prince2 Certification

The PRINCE2 Foundation, 6th edition course, focuses on a process-based technique to project management, providing an easily scalable and tailored approach for managing all projects. PRINCE2® is a versatile approach, and although initially developed to manage IT projects, it is currently also aimed at various projects. PRINCE2® has been taken on by both the public and private sectors since its establishment in 1989 as a government standard for IT project management. PRINCE2 certification holders in Singapore are now recognised as the standard for project management worldwide.

Participants are qualified to claim 21 PMI® PDUs upon completing this course. The foundation course is held for three days, with a 1-hour multiple-choice examination on the last day.

The PRINCE2® Foundation certification is designed for aspiring and established project managers in Singapore and internationally. In addition to team managers (e.g. product delivery managers), project board members (e.g. senior responsible owners), project support personnel (e.g. personnel from the Project and Programme Office), project assurance personnel (e.g. business change analysts), and operational line staff/managers, it also applies to other essential personnel involved in the development, delivery, and design of projects.

The PRINCE2® Practitioner examination assesses whether a candidate is able to remember, understand and apply the PRINCE2® project management techniques (as described in the syllabus below). The PRINCE2® certification training is essential for the PRINCE2® Practitioner exam, which will assess the candidate’s ability to implement the understanding of the PRINCE2® project management method in context.
