Length: 3 Days
The objective of the PRINCE2 Foundation Level Course is to ensure that participants will acquire the skills and knowledge to be able to act as an informed member of a project management team using the PRINCE2 method within a project environment supporting PRINCE2.
PRINCE2 is a process-based approach for project management, providing an easily tailored and scalable method for the management of all types of projects, across industries, both locally and internationally.
This is an interactive three day course with a mixture of presentations, group practical activities, case studies and practice exams based on our top quality course materials developed with the Lead Author of the PRINCE2 manual.
The purpose of the foundation qualification is to confirm you have sufficient knowledge and understanding of the PRINCE2 method to be able to work effectively with, or as a member of, a project management team working within an environment supporting PRINCE2. The foundation qualification is also a prerequisite for the Practitioner qualification.
This class is also available as On-Demand - 6-month subscription.
There is no formal requirement for attending this course, although it would be beneficial to have some understanding of project management.
It is important that participants complete the pre-course work prior to attending as the content covers items essential to the successful running of the program. It will also enhance the learning experience for all participants.
WHAT YOU’LL LEARN
By attending the 3-day Prince2 Foundation Course, participants will understand:
- The 7 Principles, 7 Themes and 7 Processes that underpin the PRINCE2 project management method
- The purpose and content of the PRINCE2 Process Map
- Key roles and responsibilities in a PRINCE2 project
- How to apply project management processes to effectively control the preparation, execution and closure phases of a project

This course is designed for:
- Project Managers
- Team Leaders
- Project Support Staff
- Quality Managers
- Project Stakeholders
By completing the Foundation course, participants will have sufficient knowledge to sit the PRINCE2 2017 Foundation Examination. The exam is held on day 3 of the course and results are made available immediately after the exam. Students who pass this exam are then able to attend the PRINCE2 2017 Practitioner course.
The Prince2 2017 Foundation Examination is:
- Multiple choice questions
- 60 questions per paper
- 33 marks required (out of 60 available) to pass: 55%
- One hour (60 minutes) duration
- Closed book
Students are strongly encouraged to attend the Practitioner course immediately after the Foundation course. This is because the Practitioner exam requires strong current knowledge of the Prince2 2017 book. This knowledge is gained in the Foundation course and therefore is still fresh for assisting with passing the Practitioner exam.
