PMP® or PRINCE2. Which Certification is Right for You?
Sometimes people are thoroughly confused between PRINCE2 and PMP® Certification and they can't decide which one they should be pursuing for.
I am an expert in both PRINCE2 and PMP®. I believe I should be able to help you. These are some of the tips that may help you to take your decision.
PRINCE2 is more of a subjective test and you have to explain project scenarios in detail in your test. It has two levels (Foundation and Practitioner). PRINCE2 (Practitioner) are highly respected in Europe (Government Agencies). You can't appear Practitioner Test without qualifying the Foundation Test. The Foundation certificate is valid lifetime whereas you have to renew your Practitioner certificate every 3 years.
PMP® is the American counterpart of PRINCE2. It has a wider acceptance worldwide. It is very popular in North America, Asia & Middle East. The test is rigorous but it is all MCQs (Multiple Choice Questions). Passing the test is usually not easy but you can do it with proper effort. Your certificate will be valid for 3 years after which you have to renew. You have to earn PDUs (Professional Development Units) to be eligible to
renew your certificate. If you have more queries as here here (queries).
