Course description

PRINCE2® Foundation e-Learning with Exam

PRINCE2 is considered the ‘de-facto’ project management method/qualification across the globe. It is a highly credible qualification useful in any industry and can be obtained in a short time-frame. It is a flexible method that guides you through the essentials for managing successful projects, regardless of type or scale. Built upon seven principles, themes and processes, PRINCE2 can be tailored to meet your specific requirements.

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 and can also increase salary prospects.

I enjoyed the online Prince 2 Foundation training and felt it was very helpful to successfully pass the exam. The format of the training was helpful with relatively short units and quizzes for information retention. I would recommend this training if considering a fully online learning experience.

It was very clear, with good visual explanations but for me, being a student who speaks a foreign language, it took me a bit more time than ordinary. I hope that the exam will be approachable.

Great course. Online testing structure is well organised and convenient. Knowing a stranger is going to look around your room also makes you want to clean it - so double benefit.
