The Foundation course is aimed at individuals who need to be informed members of a project management team within an environment using PRINCE2 methodology.

The various elements of PRINCE2 will be re-enforced using a sample case study.
On completion of the course the participants should be able to:
  • Discuss the principles of PRINCE2 methodology
  • Apply PRINCE2 methodology to projects within their organisations

Foundation Examination

At the end of the course there will be a Foundation examination.
The Foundation exam is:
  • Consists of 75 multiple choice questions
  • Lasts one hour
  • Closed book
Question Booklet contains 75 questions - 70 exam questions and 5 trial questions - each covering a different syllabus topic. Each of the 70 questions is worth 1 mark, but the trial questions are not scored. The use of trial questions enables new questions to be trialled without affecting candidates' marks. The pass mark is 35 (50%).
You are expected to answer all questions. There will be no indication of which questions are exam questions and which are trial.


To gain the most from the Foundation Course we recommend that delegates should have had prior experience or awareness of projects and the project management environment, though not necessarily as a project manager. Prior to Day One of the course Delegates should have completed their pre-course study pack. The course content and timing is based on the assumption that they will have done so.
