The aim of this training is to provide delegates with a fundamental understanding of the PRINCE2® project management method and help delegates to prepare for the PRINCE2® Foundation examination at the end of this course. 

The course follows the 6th Edition syllabus issued by AXELOS, which focuses on the PRINCE2® framework and how this might be applied pragmatically to real projects. PRINCE2® has established itself as the premier approach to managing projects. PRINCE2® is generic – capable of being applied to any kind of project – tailorable and business-driven. Organisations that have adopted the PRINCE2® have claimed that they have been able to achieve greater customer satisfaction during and at the end of projects, to reduce costs and to realise greater benefit from project deliverables. 

Who is it for?

This course would benefit all members in a project team (administrators, coordinators, managers), practising project managers and programme managers. Due to the generic nature of this course, it is also suitable for general managers, staff in a supporting role, and those who wish to gain formal recognition of their skills by taking the PRINCE2® foundation examination.  

Entry Requirements

There is no formal requirement for attending this course, although it would be beneficial to the delegates to have some understanding of project management. 

Delegates will be provided with access to study the pre-course video files before the class starts, please reference the document that is sent with your course confirmation for details on how to access. 

This PRINCE2® Foundation Pre-Course Video resource is for use in preparation for the PRINCE2® Foundation Course and those returning for PRINCE2® Practitioner.  Each short video covers a key area within the PRINCE2® method plus information on the PRINCE2® exams.  They are primarily designed to introduce or revise PRINCE2® terminology, concepts and activities to help you get ahead on your PRINCE2® course. 

The Exam

Delegates will take the PRINCE2® Foundation exam at the end of day 3 of this course.  

Exams are included in the course fee.
