Many folks have asked me about what need to happen to keep their PRINCE2 practitioner certification current. It’s pretty simple, really. If you have taken the PRINCE2 practitioner qualification since October 2000, you are officially a Registered Practitioner. To stay as such, you will need to re-register within 3 to 5 years of your original certification date by taking your PRINCE2 Re-Registration examination.
This Re-Registration examination is a 1-hour examination that is set at the same standard as your original Practitioner examination. The PRINCE2 Re-Registration examination can be taken either in paper format or online at http://online.apmg-exams.com. Many Accredited Training Organizations (ATOs), such as Learning Tree, offer briefing sessions to bring you up to date and help you to prepare for this examination. They may also allow you to sit the exam at their training facility.
The format of the exam is pretty straightforward. Like your original PRINCE2 exam, it is an objective testing examination that contains three questions. Each question is worth 12 marks for a total of 36 marks per re-registration exam paper. You are allowed one hour to sit this exam either online or in paper format. It is an open book examination, so you can use your PRINCE2 manual for reference. The passing grade is 55%, or 20 out of the 36 total marks.
The APMG can provide you with additional information on pricing and the process for taking your PRINCE2 Re-Registration Exam. You can email them directly at firstname.lastname@example.org with your questions, or contact your Learning Tree account representative in the US or the UK for details.
