PRINCE2® Accreditation Scheme

Training Accreditation

In order to become an Accredited Training Organization, AXELOS ensures, via their appointed Examination Institutes, that training organizations and their training materials conform to the technical and management standards. These standards have been developed and agreed by the independent Examination Board.

Within these Accredited Training Organizations (ATOs), only Approved Trainers can deliver the accredited courses in PRINCE2. Here, too, technical and management standards apply - in this case International Standard ISO/IEC17024.

AXELOS accreditation process means that all ATOs have been assessed in their ability to provide high-quality PRINCE2 training material and to organise and deliver high-quality training courses. All ATOs and Approved Trainers are formally reassessed on a three-yearly cycle as well as being subject to ad hoc monitoring by the appointed Examination Institutes.

Consulting Accreditation

Through 2014 AXELOS will bring forward its own Accredited Consulting Scheme. In the meantime to provide continuity and stability we will recognise all those ACOs and registered consultants currently in the scheme as of 31 December 2013.
