Frequently Asked Questions

PRINCE2® Foundation is the first level of PRINCE2® certification.

Our 3-day PRINCE2® Foundation Course is designed to prepare you to sit the Foundation exam on the afternoon of Day 3 of the course.

This is an intensive exam preparation course. The content draws from the official Axelos textbook, “Managing Successful Projects with PRINCE2® (provided as part of your course materials).

You will gain an understanding of how the PRINCE2® approach to project management works while preparing for your exam.

We will provide you with access to pre-course familiarisation reading before the course begins.

This reading is crucial for your exam success. It is essential that you complete this pre-course reading, which usually takes between 5 – 6 hours.

It is also important to allow time for study on the evenings during the course. We always recommend that participants minimise any other commitments as much as possible during training.

PRINCE2® Foundation is the first level of certification you’ll achieve when learning the PRINCE2® methodology. This level of knowledge is focused around understanding the fundamentals of how PRINCE2® works.

Practitioner certification is the next step. This stage is centred around tailoring PRINCE2® to different projects. You must achieve PRINCE2® Foundation certification before you can achieve the Practitioner certification.

This course includes everything you need to achieve your PRINCE2® Foundation Certification:

  • 3 days of classroom training with our expert PRINCE2® trainer
  • Access to pre-course reading
  • Course materials, sample exam questions, and the official Axelos textbook, “Managing Successful Projects with PRINCE2®” (2017 edition)
  • Exam fees

Learn more about our in-company PRINCE2® training.

Taking our approach, you can achieve PRINCE2® Foundation in 3 days + 5 – 6 hours of pre-course reading. The pre-course study time can vary slightly from person to person.

We have a 3-step process for achieving PRINCE2® Certification:

  • Step 1: Complete pre-course reading.
  • Step 2: Attend training and study in the evenings.
  • Step 3: Sit your exam.

Once you have passed your exam, you will gain your PRINCE2® Foundation certification.
