PRINCE2® Foundation (2009)
Duration: 3 days
The PRINCE2 Foundation course provides delegates with an introductory understanding of PRINCE2 project management methodology. Working with world class trainers, delegates will learn how to apply the method to projects in their own work environment and to successfully pass their PRINCE2 Foundation exam.
The course is inclusive of courseware, examinations, refreshments, post course tutor support, and pass guarantee.
The course covers the full PRINCE2 syllabus and therefore equips delegates not just to take the Foundation examination, but also to understand the broad range of PRINCE2's principles, key themes, processes and techniques. The aim during the course is to achieve an effective balance between exam success and the need for skills transfer.
Delegates are required to undertake preliminary study using FGI's Pre-Course Workbook. There is approximately 4-5 hours of pre-course study which is required in preparation for this course. Further self-study is also expected during the evenings of each course day.
The following topics will be covered:
- Introduction to PRINCE2 and Project Management

This course will enable participants to:
- Describe the characteristics of a project and appreciate why projects need to be managed
- Describe the benefits of using PRINCE2 as a project management methodology
- Demonstrate their knowledge understanding of the elements of PRINCE2
- Assess their own projects in respect to what they have learnt

Who Will Benefit?
Some previous experience in a project environment is advisable. This might mean delegates are already managing projects and now require formal PRINCE2 training, or that they are perhaps involved in some form of project support activity.
Delegates can sit the PRINCE2 Foundation examination at the end of the final day of the course. This is a one-hour, multiple-choice, closed book examination testing the delegate's knowledge of PRINCE2 theory. Delegates need to score 50% or more, to pass.
