PRINCE2® 6th Edition Foundation Certificate

PRINCE2® 6th Edition Foundation Certificate


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.


3 days. With the Foundation exam taken on day 3.

Delegates are not required to carry out any significant pre-course preparation. However, the course is intensive and delegates are advised to undertake some revision work in the evenings to prepare for the examinations.

Course Objectives

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.

For an additional £30 you can add a Take2 exam resit option. This means if you do not pass the exam first time, you can resit it once without having to purchase an additional exam voucher.

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.
