Project management is an exciting place to be. Project managers help shape the success of organizations, implement new technology, change the business landscape, and have influence over all areas of a business. Project managers also earn a nice income and often move up the organizational chain into full-time management positions.
PRINCE2 (an acronym for PRojects IN Controlled Environments) is a de facto process-based method for effective project management. PRINCE2 is widely recognized and used in the private as well as public sector. The PRINCE2 method is in the public domain and offers non-proprietorial best practice guidance on project management.
Prince2 Certification is a highly recognized and reputed qualification. Not only does it give you a strong skill set to add to your resume but also considerably increases your ability to execute projects in a corporate environment. The skills you gain are industry-agnostic and have a global appeal.

The benefits of completing the PRINCE2 Certifications directly translate into well paid careers in project management:
The average annual salary for project managers stands at £47,500. Top professionals in the financial sector enjoy the highest remuneration averaging over £150,000 pa. For freelance project management contractors, the average day rate is £450 but there is great scope for increased earning power. One-in-six contractors are now earning £700-£1,000 per day, which compares more than favourably against other professions.
The Project Management Institute’s (PMI) ‘Earning Power: Project Management Salary Survey’ found that professional certification adds a 20% premium on average salaries. This is borne out by CW Jobs which states that PRINCE2 qualified professionals net around £57,500 per annum - more than £10,000 above the median.
