Why study a PRINCE2® course?
Given its international acclaim, being able to mention a PRINCE2® qualification in your CV is an undeniable asset to your career. Not only does it boost your employment prospects, but the qualification itself also provides you with the tools to prove yourself as an employee after landing that job or promotion. The professional benefits you derive from the course are not affected by your area of expertise or the industry you work in either. Interestingly, a survey carried out by AXELOS in 2016 found that all interviewees believed that doing a PRINCE2® course played a positive role in their careers, despite many being employed in fields such as IT or business.
Unsurprisingly, employers also view the qualification as a selling point. A candidate in possession of a PRINCE2® certificate is very likely to be seen as one that can be trusted to keep the ship steady during economic downturns and recessions. It also tells the employers that the candidate can troubleshoot and manage risk effectively under unfavourable circumstances. This is because the lessons and beliefs making up the PRINCE2® philosophy are held in high regards in all professional circles.
