The PRINCE2 credential is widely recognized and accepted worldwide. The PRINCE2 Foundation is an entry-level certification and the PRINCE2 Practitioner is the second level certification.
There are two levels to the qualification:
The Foundation Level is the first qualification that is required to become a PRINCE2® Practitioner. This level is aiming to measure whether a candidate could act as an informed member of a project management team on a Project using the PRINCE2® method, within an environment supporting PRINCE2®. To this end they need to show they understand the principles and terminology of the method.
The Practitioner Level Candidates must pass the Foundation exam before proceeding to the Practitioner level. The Practitioner Level aims to measure whether the candidate is able to apply PRINCE2® methods to the running and managing of a Project. They need to show that they are able to finetune PRINCE2® to different project circumstances and understand the relationship between processes, components and techniques.
