Re-Registration Examination

Background and Current Requirements

In response to the requirements of the European Standards for the Accreditation of Certification Bodies it is necessary to update your PRINCE2 Practitioner qualification. This forms an aspect of their drive for continuous improvement.

The PRINCE2 Examination Board has determined that all PRINCE2 Practitioners should be re-registered within 3-5 years of their original certification. This re-registration comprises a 1-hour examination set at the same standard as the Practitioner examination. All Practitioners who have taken the PRINCE2 Practitioner qualification since October 2000 have agreed or are agreeing to this requirement as part of their 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. This is particularly important following the recent upgrading of the PRINCE2 Manual and its greater focus on Business Case and the Management of Risk.

Those who have qualified since January 2001 or have voluntarily undertaken the re-registration qualification are designated as Registered Practitioners, which enables Employers and prospective Employers to be confident with the current nature of their knowledge and commitment to Continuing Professional Development.
