PRINCE2 Agile® Foundation & Practitioner Course
What is the PRINCE2 Agile certification?
This 4-day PRINCE2 Agile® course will firstly introduce you to the PRINCE2 methodology and Agile concepts, then build around your newfound knowledge teaching you how to blend structure, governance and control with agile methods, techniques and approaches. Most Agile frameworks have an emphasis on developing empowered teams that can rapidly deliver high value outputs and outcomes but are less concerned with structure and governance.
PRINCE2 Agile brings it all together in a thought provoking package which can be applied to any project in any industry. If you're looking for an Agile qualification with the world's most popular approach to project management then this PRINCE2 Agile Foundation & Practitioner course will give you just that!
Is this course for you?
This course is aimed at any professional working within a project environment, such as project managers, aspiring project managers and anyone who manages projects. It is also relevant to other key staff involved in the design, development and delivery of projects, including: Project Board members (e.g. Senior Responsible Owners), Team Managers (e.g. Product Delivery Managers), Project Assurance (e.g. Business Change Analysts), Project Support (e.g. Project and Programme Office personnel) and operational line managers/staff.
This is a very intense course that requires evening homework to help you along with your study's so, we advise booking out the full week to allow for full focus on the course and prepare you for your exams.
Accreditation / Qualification(s) offered
The Foundation and Practitioner qualification are both valuable, globally recognised project management accreditations.
Qualify at two levels
The PRINCE2 Agile certification is split into two different qualification levels – Foundation and Practitioner. The Foundation level will be covered in the first 2 days of this course. The Foundation exam will be taken in the afternoon of the fourth day. The final 2 days of this 4 day course will cover the Practitioner level material, demonstrating how to apply and tailor the PRINCE2 Agile context.
Exam vouchers are valid for 12 months so you can take them at a time and day that is convenient to you but, we do recommend taking the exam during the week of your course if possible as pass rates are typically higher.
Some delegates prefer to take the Foundation exam on the second day of the course followed by the Practitioner exam on the fourth day or, they prefer to book out the fifth day for self-studying in the morning and then sitting both exams on the fifth day but please choose whichever method works best for you.
AXELOS’ certifications are globally recognised and highly sought after by potential employers.

The PRINCE2 Agile Foundation course is a 2 day introduction to both the world of project management and agile ways of working.
Candidates on this course will be given an introduction to the PRINCE2 processes, principles and themes. However, the main focus will be on exploring what it means to be agile and how the team members, project manager and project board can work in a more agile way. As well as conventional teaching, there will be practical activities so that learners can practice a number of agile techniques.
- Objective testing
- One-hour multiple-choice paper
- 50 questions with a pass mark of 55%
- Closed book exam.

PRINCE2 Agile Practitioner course is a workshop that builds on the Foundation course.

It finishes with a 2.5 hour, scenario-based, multiple choice exam on the second day.
- Objective testing
- 50 questions each worth one mark
- 30 marks or more required to pass out of 50 questions: 60% pass mark
- Two-and-a-half hours’ (150 minutes) duration, no additional reading time

"Sue was an excellent trainer and a nice person to be trained by too. Clearly has a thorough and comprehensive knowledge of not only the course but the whole discipline."
"The use of whiteboards, real time example, breakout room and attempting the questions after every topic was really helpful. The enthusiastic tutor, made the course better."
"The ideas and techniques learned in the course has changed my vision towards project management. It taught me various methods which I can apply in my career. I managed to learn new aspects of management cycle which I was unaware of. The course was very useful to me."
"I thoroughly enjoyed the course and got a good deal of useful information from it. I have carried out projects throughout my career, and a few years ago took the APM Project Management Qualification (PMQ), but carried out projects using my own methods. PRINCE2 is great in that it sets out a methodology for carrying out project management, and is the most widely recognised in the UK. Adding agile was the icing on the cake."
"Dhaliwal Narinder our trainer was excellent, adding insights from her vast experience to enhance our learning. We have tried Agile and Project Management separately, now i have the opportunity to try both again in my Faculty. Receiving this course online whilst locked down was perfect."
"The course was interesting and interactive, though a lot of information needed to be crammed in and consumed. Having done an Agile course a few years ago, this course helped to reinforce what was previously learned and put a project management theme to it. The instructor was very knowledgeable and explained the theory very well. The other participants were engaging and helped make the course interesting through the sharing of question and answer sessions to the relationship of past experiences."
Experienced and well qualified training staff provide excellent support and are committed to improving trainees' experience.
