PRINCE2 recertification

As of 1st January 2023 an expiry date has been introduced for PRINCE2 certifications, so that they expire after 3 years.

This means that if you want to keep your PRINCE2 certificate, you need to take a recertification or take an overbidden course.

We offer 1-day courses incl. certification exam so you can have your certification extended.

What are my options for a PRINCE2 recertification?

If you wish to maintain your certification, there are various options:


You can take a recertification. This means that you must take a new PRINCE2 exam. At MetierWestergaard, we offer two options for this: 

Re-certification course:

This is a 1-day course where we update you on the PRINCE2 method. During this day, you will be ready to take the exam and obtain your recertification, which is then valid for 3 years. 

Below you can register for these one-day courses. Alternatively, you can take our e-learning, where you have the opportunity to update yourself on the method, and then take the exam afterwards. This is a brand new course, but at an attractive price. 

Advanced course:

If you already have a PRINCE2 Foundation certification (which has expired or will expire), then you can take an exam in PRINCE2 Practitioner or PRINCE2 Agile Practitioner. This will then lead to an extension of your PRINCE2 certification for 3 years - i.e. both your Foundation and your new Practitioner certification.

The above also means that if you already have a certification in PRINCE2 Practitioner or PRINCE2 Agile Practitioner which expires, you must take a re-certification in the course in question.

Will my PRINCE2 certificate expire?

Has it been a long time since you took your PRINCE2 course? How do I know, if I should be recertified? Is re-certification necessary?
Please note that there are new rules per January 1, 2023!

If you have taken a PRINCE2 certification before 30 June 2020, your certification expires per 30 June 2023. 

This means that you must take a recertification if you want to keep your PRINCE2 certificate. 

If you took your PRINCE2 certification after 30 June 2020, your certification expires 3 years after the date of your certificate. 

This again means that you must take a recertification if you want to keep your PRINCE2 certificate. 

If you are in doubt about when you have taken your exam, and thus when your certificate expires, you must log in to your PeopleCert profile, where you have access to your exams and certificates. If you have problems with this, you are always welcome to contact us.
