PRINCE2: Foundation

Change has become a way of life for organisations that need to remain effective and competitive in order to thrive. PRINCE2® embodies many years of "Best Practice" in Project Management and this knowledge will ensure that you are provided with a flexible, adaptable, and successful approach to suit all types of projects.

A PRINCE2® Foundation qualification is recognised world- wide as a measure of excellence in Project Management skills.

This course is designed to provide the skills and experience required to implement the PRINCE2® Methodology. PRINCE2® is a project management method designed to provide a framework covering the wide variety of disciplines and activities required within a successful project.

The Foundation course adds a significant amount of knowledge and understanding of how all the processes, components and techniques all work together to achieve the successful delivery of a PRINCE2® project. Delegates will be given a sufficient level of knowledge to be able to pass the examination leading to the award of the PRINCE2® Foundation Certificate.

Project Managers, Project Consultants, Project Planners, Project Estimators, Resource Managers, Team Managers, Supervisors, Project Support Staff, Project Assurance Staff or anyone requiring more than a basic knowledge of PRINCE2™

There are no pre-requisites in terms of project management experience. Prior to the course, each delegate will be sent the PRINCE2® manual, suggested pre-course work and a reading list, in order that they become familiar with the PRINCE2® concepts. It is essential to the successful delivery of this course that the pre-course work is completed. A large proportion of this pre-course work may be omitted where the delegate has attended a PRINCE2® Overview course.

Delegates should be aware that some evening study will be required on days one and two, in order to assist in the successful completion of the examination

Follow-On Courses:
PRINCE2® Practitioner
PRINCE2® Conversion – 2 days or 3 days

For those wishing to consolidate the Foundation concepts, the choice is between sitting the 5-day Practitioner course, or one of the two variants of the Conversion course. Where delegates have had a significant amount of time since attending the Foundation course, or require a full refresher, or attended the older version of the Foundation (pre-October 2005), then the 5-day Practitioner may prove to be the wiser investment.

For those preparing for the Practitioner examination, where a quick reminder of the method and practise in the exam technique is all that is required, then the 2-day Conversion course is available. The 2-day Conversion course is also suitable for delegates re-sitting the examination or renewing their qualifications. Where clients feel that something in between these two extremes is more appropriate, the 3-day Conversion course is available for Closed Courses only. PRINCE2® courses will be delivered in association with Datrix Training Ltd, an approved training organisation.
