If you are looking for an AXELOS certification, we have something which may not sound nice. As a leading online learning platform, we have received a notification that AXELOS is about to increase course fees for all its upcoming examination be it ITIL, PRINCE2, MSP, or P3O. The new prices will come into effect by January 2019 and hence, you are requested to apply for such certifications much before the last date.
Since after its inception, AXELOS has been raising the price graph with significant percentages. Professionals seeking AXELOS certifications have seen up to 80% price hike in its courses. The same is going to happen by next year. However, the increased prices for certified training exam in 2019 are yet to be announced but we can expect a hike of 30% in course fees, based on its previous price hike pattern.
Let’s have a look at AXELOS price –hike pattern in previous years:
- 2014- 2015: 80%
- 2015- 2016: 30%
- 2016- 2017: 35%
- 2017-2018: 25%
- 2018-19: 30%(expected)
From the previous year’s patterns, we can conclude that In January 2019, the price hike would be 30-35%. However, we cannot predict the actual percentage but, a rough idea can be assumed on the basis of previous year’s data.
Factors that could lead to Price Increase
- Type of License: Trade Mark only/ Copyright Only / Trademark and Copyright both.
- Update in the Framework
- The royalty rates are also charged on the basis of copyright proportion used in software or product
- Other factors include use of service
Recently, AXELOS has announced that it will update the Framework for Service Management in 2019 which will be built on current ITIL guidelines and integrating services of DevOps, Agile and Lean. Apart from this, AXELOS has also updated the project management methodology PRINCE 2 in July 2018, so the PRINCE 2 2018 certificate training exam prices may also be increased. Based on this information, we could expect a price increase for the following certification training exams:
- ITIL® Foundation
- ITIL® Intermediate
- PRINCE2® Foundation
- PRINCE2® Practitioner
- PRINCE2® Combo
- PRINCE2® Agile
