AXELOS Limited, the company that was in charge of managing, developing and growing the portfolio of best practices and methodologies in project, programme and portfolio management, as well as IT and digitally enabled services, including PRINCE2® and ITIL®, was acquired by PeopleCert in June 2021.
This acquisition will result in significant changes in all products previously managed by AXELOS starting from 2022 and this will also affect all authorized training organizations (ATOs).
The Impact of PeopleCert's Acquisition on AXELOS Products
What will change from 2022?
- Official manuals in PDF format will be included with the purchase of a Foundation training course. The digital book will become available to candidates when entering the voucher on PeopleCert’s platform. Candidates will not need to schedule the exam at the time of the voucher redemption. Instead, they will have the option to schedule the exam at a later date, gaining access to their eBook in the meantime. It will still be possible, from January 1st 2022 onwards, to purchase hard copy manuals through PeopleCert.
- Exams will only be available in digital format and will have to be taken online on PeopleCert’s platform. Paper-format exams will no longer be available. All candidates will need to book autonomously their exams online on PeopleCert’s platform, including students that have attended classroom courses. For more information about the requirements and procedures for online exams with PeopleCert, please visit this page.
- In response to these recent changes applied by PeopleCert, iLEARN will be increasing prices for all products related to certifications issued by PeopleCert. These include ITIL® 4, PRINCE2®, PRINCE2 Agile®, MoP®, M_o_R®, MoV®, MSP® and P3O®.
