AXELOS has launched its Professional Development Programme for PRINCE2 and ITIL Practitioners. Here are the details: "AXELOS launched its Professional Development Programme, providing PRINCE2 and ITIL® practitioners with a new way to stay up-to-date and relevant. Members of our programme are able to complete Continuing Professional Development (CPD) activities and earn a digital badge to demonstrate their commitment to keeping their skills and knowledge up-to-date. Currently, PRINCE2 Practitioners are required to take a Re-registration exam every five years, to demonstrate they are up-to-date. As members of the AXELOS Professional Development Programme, they can now use their digital badge as an alternative way to demonstrate their relevance. This means that members can choose how they want to remain current based on their professional needs - either through re-registration or a digital badge. Having a digital badge also qualifies PRINCE2 Practitioners as eligible to sit for the new PRINCE2 Agile™ qualification, providing a further extension of their project management knowledge and skills. Until 31 December 2015, anybody that signs up to AXELOS’ Professional Development Programme will receive free membership, saving them £100 (a one-off registration fee of £25 still applies). For more information about how to earn a digital badge upon joining the programme, visit www.axelos.com."
