DPG Launches PRINCE2® Qualifications

Take your career to the next level with an online PRINCE2® qualification. 

Double accredited by PeopleCert and AXELOS, PRINCE2 qualifications are ideal for prospective or current project managers looking to take their career to the next level. Alternatively, PRINCE2 qualifications are also great for anyone who simply desires a better understanding of how to work more effectively within projects in their organisation.

PeopleCert partners with multi-national, private and public sector organisations as a global leader in the assessment and certification of professional and language skills in order to create and carry out market leading exams around the globe. AXELOS, on the other hand, is a joint venture that aims to develop, manage and operate qualifications in best practice, set up by the Government of the United Kingdom and Capita in 2014.

PRINCE2 certifications are available at two different levels: Foundation and Practitioner. There is, however, a Foundation & Practitioner Combined course available - but more on that later. 

So, whether you’re seeking a career in project management or require the skills to execute and apply best practice methods at work, investing in one or both of these courses is a great way to expand your knowledge and enhance your professional skills, helping you develop in your current role or land the perfect job for you.

What are the PRINCE2 qualifications?

Designed by 150 leading public and private sector bodies, including the UK government, PRINCE2 refers to a process-based method for effective project management. Essentially, PRINCE2 qualifications provide you with the fundamental skills to become a successful project manager yourself.

Through its application, project managers - or those in similar roles - can better manage PRojects In Controlled Environments, applying their newfound knowledge to new and existing projects, and addressing the solutions to any problems that may arise.

PRINCE2 is completely scalable and can be easily tailored to each project undertaken, adapting the framework of a project of any size, sector, location and complexity, while it is also compatible with all other project management qualifications.

Why take the PRINCE2 qualifications?

Project management-oriented roles have grown significantly in necessity and popularity over the past couple of years with employers continuously recognising the importance for such roles to drive change and innovation within the organisations they serve. According to the report Project Management Job Growth and Talent Gap 2017-2027, it is expected that employers worldwide will need almost 88 million individuals working in project management roles by 2027. With an expected growth of 33% it comes as no surprise that the need for project talent has accelerated upward, providing individuals in such roles with great career progression opportunities. 

While for many jobs it is already required for employees to hold a PRINCE2 qualification to get a role of project manager, it is also firmly established as the world’s most practised and respected method of project management, leading to great career progression opportunities - but don’t take our word for it. Based on the AXELOS 2016 PRINCE2® Report 88% of project professionals said PRINCE2 helped them in their career.
