There are some important changes taking place in 2022 regarding your PeopleCert certification process which we would like to inform all prospective candidates about.
PeopleCert are the Exam Institute for a range of project and programme methods including PRINCE2®, PRINCE2 Agile®, MSP®, ITIL®, MoP®, MoR® and P3O®. They recently acquired AXELOS, creators of the approaches and since then, have notified all Accredited Training Organisations of changes that will be taking place which will affect how you study for these exams.
Move to online exams only
To ensure that the exam process is as standardised and equal as possible for every candidate they will very soon be restricted to online only. No training may be purchased without an exam and going forward there will be no paper based option for taking your exam. To help candidates feel confident with the process before taking their exams, PeopleCert have introduced the following process
PeopleCert are not the first Examination Institute to migrate to online only exams, APM (Association for Project Management) introduced 100% online examinations also this year.
Creators and owners of APM Project Fundamentals Qualification and Project Management Qualification have also published guidance on how to sit their online exams here.
How do I book my PeopleCert exams online?
When you purchase your training course from SPOCE we will provide you access to the PeopleCert exam booking system where you can select your own time slot.
We recommend that you book at least 3 weeks in advance to avoid disappointment.
Digital copy of the manual to every candidate
Each candidate that purchases and exam from 2022 will receive a digital copy of the manual. This is to embed awareness of the guidance and create a consistent experience for each candidate.
What if I want to purchase a hard copy of the manual for notes?
Hard copies of the manual will still be available and will be an optional extra when booking your course.
What if I am booking both Foundation and Practitioner level. Will I be charged for two manuals?
No. One manual will be part of the course package and access will be given with all Foundation courses and exams purchased.
Price increases across their portfolio
PeopleCert are also implementing a price rise across the board effective from 1st February 2022. Although SPOCE will be reviewing our pricing at this time we cannot guarantee that you will be charged the same price that is currently advertised on our website. So, if you are thinking of booking a course soon it may be wise to do this to secure your current price.
