About the Course

The PRINCE2 Foundation online course gives learners a solid understanding of the key concepts and principles of the methodology. Importantly, it focuses on the practical application of the approach throughout the lifecycle of a PRINCE2 project. 

PRINCE2 breaks projects down into more manageable and controlled stages. This provides a greater level of flexibility, while also keeping the project aligned with the all-important ‘Business Case’. 

The Foundation-level course introduces PRINCE2’s Principles, Themes, and Processes. Learners are guided through examples of their effective application in a project environment. Passing the Foundation level exam is a prerequisite for taking the PRINCE2 Practitioner certification exam.
