PRINCE2 Foundation Certificate

3 days


Projects bring together resources, skills, technology and ideas to achieve business objectives. Using a structured project management method such as PRINCE2 helps an organisation to ensure that these objectives are delivered to an appropriate level of quality and within the constraints of time and cost. It is also an essential element in managing the risks inherent in change and innovation. PRINCE2 is used extensively throughout the public sector in the UK and is also widely recognised and used commercially in the UK and abroad. The method can be applied to all kinds of project including information systems projects.

Course fees include a copy of the latest edition of the official PRINCE2 manual, all examination fees and lunch.

Our PRINCE2 courses are far more than just exam crammers and our trainers go out of their way to make sure that delegates are able to use PRINCE2 in the real world. At the same time, we offer an exam promise for both the Foundation and Practitioner. Should you fail to pass then you can resit the course once again for free, paying only your exam costs and a £10 per day contribution to your lunches and refreshments.

This course will enable delegates to:

  • Identify the factors which enable successful projects.
  • Describe the main PRINCE2 principles, themes and processes.
  • Describe the key PRINCE2 management products.
  • Recognise and use key PRINCE2 terminology.
  • Prepare for and take the PRINCE2 Foundation Certificate exam.


This course will benefit anyone working in a PRINCE2 project environment who requires a comprehensive understanding of the key PRINCE2 principles and terminology.

The Foundation Certificate is a prerequisite for the PRINCE2 Practitioner Certificate. This course is therefore an ideal starting point for delegates who wish to take the Practitioner examination at a later date.

For those looking to gain both the Foundation and Practitioner certifications as soon as possible, our PRINCE2 Foundation and Practitioner course covers all the necessary material and includes both the exams in a single five day course.


There are no prerequisites for this course, other than a basic awareness of project work in the delegate's own business environment.

Thinking about Onsite?

If you need training for 3 or more people, you should ask us about onsite training. Putting aside the obvious location benefit, content can be customised to better meet your business objectives and more can be covered than in a public classroom. It's a cost effective option.
