About PRINCE2® Foundation

About PRINCE2 Foundation Course

The purpose of the Foundation qualification is to confirm that a candidate has 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 pre-requisite for the Practitioner qualification.

In the PRINCE2® Foundation course, the instructors will train you on increasing your knowledge and ability to manage the concepts of the PRINCE2 methodology. You will be taught the seven principles, the seven themes and the seven processes of PRINCE2®. Learning to differentiate between the processes and their implementation also forms a part of the PRINCE2® Foundation course.

This qualification is aimed at project managers and aspiring project managers. It is also relevant to other key staff involved in the design, development and delivery of projects, including: Project Board members (e.g. Senior Responsible Owners), Team Managers (e.g. Product Delivery Managers), Project Assurance (e.g. Business Change Analysts), Project Support (e.g. Project and Programme Office personnel) and operational line managers/staff.
