About the course
PRINCE2® is a process-based methodology for efficient and effective Project Management. An easily tailored and scalable approach for management of all project types, PRINCE2® is widely used in both the private and public sectors, worldwide.
Because the PRINCE2® method is in the public domain, it has the ability to offer generic best practice guidance for Project Management. A logical and structured approach, PRINCE2® provides a clearly organised beginning, middle and end to a project which promotes a successful result.
The PRINCE2® Foundation course is the first of two examination courses that you are required to pass in order to become a registered PRINCE2® Practitioner. This makes it the ideal starting point for anyone who is interested in a rewarding career in Project Management.
The Foundation certification is internationally recognised and covers the basic methodology and terminology of PRINCE2®. Completing the Foundation course will ensure the ability to demonstrate an understanding of the PRINCE2® Principles, Themes, Processes and Tailoring. It will also teach the various techniques and roles that are required during a PRINCE2® Project.
Completion of the PRINCE2® Foundation course, and passing the certification examination, will result in being sufficiently prepared to work within a PRINCE2® environment and as a part of a PRINCE2® Project Management team. Successfully passing the PRINCE2® Foundation examination is also a prerequisite for writing the PRINCE2® Practitioner exam which will lead to becoming a Registered PRINCE2® Practitioner. A qualification in PRINCE2® is highly beneficial and the perfect investment for a future in the Project Management sector.
