PRINCE2® Practitioner Re-Registration Examination

Page Banner Certifications

All PRINCE2 Practitioners should be re-registered within 3-5 calendar years of their original certification. This Re-Registration comprises a 1-hour examination set at the same standard as the Practitioner examination.

The re-registration qualification enables you to demonstrate your commitment to continuing professional development and the currency of your knowledge of PRINCE2 to employers, peers and colleagues. The PRINCE2 re-registration exam comprises an exam paper set at the same standard as the Practitioner examination and is based on the 2009 PRINCE2 Manual.

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 recency of knowledge and commitment to Continuing Professional Development.

*Please Note:
The date applicable to Practitioners via our Benelux office is 1st May 2008. Practitioners certified prior to May 2008 have the opportunity to take the re-registration examination.

The date applicable to Australian Practitioners is 1st January 2010. Practitioners certified prior to January 2010 have the opportunity to take the re-registration examination.
