PRINCE2 Re-Registration

The PRINCE2® Examination Board has determined that all PRINCE2 Practitioners should be re-registered within 3-5 calendar years of their original certification (failure to pass the Re-registration Examination after 5 calendar years as a Registered Practitioner will result in withdrawal of your registered status). This Re-Registration comprises a 1-hour examination set at the same standard as the Practitioner examination. If you have taken the PRINCE2 Practitioner certification since October 2000 you have agreed, or are agreeing, to this requirement as part of your initial application and so are now designated as Registered Practitioners.

Practitioners certified prior to October 2000* have the opportunity to take the re-registration examination in order to demonstrate their commitment to professional development. Those who qualified after January 2001 or have voluntarily undertaken the re-registration certification are designated as Registered Practitioners, which enables employers and prospective employers to be confident with their knowledge and commitment to Continuing Professional Development. 

PRINCE2 Re-Registration Examination Format  

• Objective testing 3 questions - 10 question items per question, each worth one mark

• 17 marks or more required to pass (out of 30 available) - 55%

• 1 hour (60 minute) duration, no additional reading time

• Open book exam (official PRINCE2 manual only)

How long are the PRINCE2 qualifications valid for?  

The foundation examination is not valid for a defined period and will not expire.

Candidates who pass the practitioner exam are recognized as a 'PRINCE2 Registered Practitioner'. Individuals will remain registered for a period of 5 years. To maintain the registered status, practitioners must complete and pass a PRINCE2 re-registration examination 3-5 years following their initial/previous practitioner certification.

How long will it take to learn the PRINCE2 material?  

Foundation courses are delivered over 2 days, and the foundation and practitioner courses are delivered over 4 days.
