PRINCE2® Foundation - Including Exam Course Overview

The aim of this training is to provide delegates with a fundamental understanding of the PRINCE2® project management method and to help delegates prepare for the PRINCE2® Foundation examination - web proctored exam voucher included in course fee.

• 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.

Skills Gained

At the end of this course delegates will be able to;

• • Understand the need for project management and how PRINCE2® meets that requirement

• • Understand the PRINCE2® process model

• • Prepare project plans using product based planning techniques and undertake risk analysis and management for the project

• • Prepare information for inclusion in a Project Initiation Document

• • Understand techniques for planning, management of product development, quality control & change control

Who will the Course Benefit?

This course is aimed at 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.


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.
