I passed PRINCE2 – what do I put on my CV or LinkedIn?

Posted by PRINCE2 Canada

Login to your LinkedIn account and, using the top menu, click on Me and then View profile under your name. PRINCE2 on LinkedIn

If your Certification section is already active, just click on the Plus sign in the Accomplishments box.

…Otherwise you need to activate the Certification section.
At the top right of your screen, click on Add new profile section, then Accomplishments and the Plus sign next to Certifications.

A window will appear:

  • Certification Name:  For the Practitioner level type: “PRINCE2 Registered Practitioner”.
    If you have passed only the Foundation exam then use  “PRINCE2 Foundation Certificate”. 
  • Certification Authority:  start typing “PEOPLECERT” and then select from the drop down list the company in the sector of Education Management.
  • License Number:  this identification will be on the certificate you will download. (Optional)
  • Time Period:  Select the month and year in which you were certified. Then select an expiry date 3 years ahead for Practitioner. If you have passed only the Foundation exam then there is no expiry, just click the box ‘This certification does not expire’
  • Certification URL: leave blank

Click on the Save button and you are done!

You may also want to add the PRINCE2 title to your name, by clicking on the pen  next to your picture at the top of the profile and editing your name field.

For example: “John Smith, PRINCE2” or “Jane Smith, P2P”.
