This two-day PRINCE2 course provides delegates with a thorough understanding of the PRINCE2 project management methodology. During the course we introduce the roles, principles, themes and processes that form the the structure of PRINCE2. We also explain the various PRINCE2 management products that will help delegates deliver projects in a coordinated, consistent and transparent manner.

Throughout the course, our PRINCE2 experts help delegates understand the benefits of adopting the PRINCE2 methodology.

Prior to the course delegates will receive access to QA's PRINCE2 eLearning to help them prepare adequately. All relevant course materials are provided, including the core textbook 'Managing Successful Projects with PRINCE2'. The course concludes with the PRINCE2 Foundation Examination.

N.B. If you wish to book your PRINCE2 Foundation and PRINCE2 Practitioner events in the same week please do so using the combined course code PBPP2FP, as the PRINCE2 Foundation exam will be provisionally marked during the course so you can continue to the Practitioner event. (www.qa.com/pbpp2fp).

If you are only booking the PRINCE2 Foundation course we recommend you do not book a Practitioner event until you have confirmation that you have successfully passed the PRINCE2 Foundation exam, which is an essential prerequisite of the Practitioner level. The marking process for the PRINCE2 Foundation exam can take 2-3 weeks.

Excellent classroom learning experience with QA. Our trainer was absolutely brilliant. His delivery style was very unique; he made dry, complex topics very easy to understand and retain. Very highly recommended!

Course Outline

The PRINCE2 Foundation course uses QA's unique multimedia case-studies and accelerated-learning techniques to ensure that theory is embedded and delegates feel confident in the practical application of PRINCE2. Additional evening work will be required in the form of consolidation reading and mock examination questions. The evening work is an integral part of the course and delegates should expect to spend approximately two hours on these activities.

The course will cover the following syllabus areas:

PRINCE2 Overview

Delegates are introduced to the world of projects and project management and to the overall structure of the PRINCE2 method. The benefits of adopting a formal project management method will also be outlined.

PRINCE2 Principles

PRINCE2 operates with a universal set of principles that can be applied to every project. These seven principles provide the framework of good practice upon which PRINCE2 is based.

  • Continued business justification
  • Learn from Experience
  • Defined Roles and Responsibilities
  • Manage by stages
  • Manage by exception
  • Focus on Products
  • Tailor to suit the project environment

PRINCE2 Themes

The seven PRINCE2 themes are aspects of the project that must be continually addressed and linked together in order for the project to be delivered effectively.

  • Business Case
  • Organisation
  • Quality
  • Plans
  • Risk
  • Change
  • Progress

PRINCE2 Processes

The seven PRINCE2 processes define the activities that are required to direct, manage and deliver the project successfully. The following processes run from pre-project, through initiation and delivery, up to and including project closure.

  • Starting up a Project
  • Directing a Project
  • Initiating a Project
  • Controlling a Stage
  • Managing Product Delivery
  • Managing a Stage Boundary
  • Closing a Project

PRINCE2 Foundation Examination

Key exam information:

  • 1 hour long
  • Closed book
  • 75 multiple-choice questions
  • 50% pass mark

Throughout the PRINCE2 Foundation course, delegates will be exposed to numerous examples of examination questions. We will undertake a number of exercises and 'question-and-answer' sessions that will help to consolidate the learning, thereby ensuring that delegates are more than adequately prepared for the final examination.
