What is PRINCE2® Foundation certification
PRINCE2® Foundation certification is a knowledge certification for individuals wanting to demonstrate they have sufficient understanding of the PRINCE2 project management method. Being certified at this level of the PRINCE2 qualification scheme assesses that the candidate can recall and understand the PRINCE2 project management method. In particular:
- understand key concepts relating to projects and PRINCE2
- understand how the PRINCE2 principles underpin the PRINCE2 method
- understand the PRINCE2 themes and how they are applied throughout the project
- understand the PRINCE2 processes and how they are carried out throughout the project
PRINCE2 evolved in 2017 to its latest version now named PRINCE2 6th Edition (formerly PRINCE2 2017). However, for some languages the latest version is not available yet and students should refer to the previous one (named PRINCE2 5th Edition, formerly PRINCE2 2009). Read more information about the differences between PRINCE2 6th and 5th edition.
AXELOS is the organization proprietary of the intellectual rights of PRINCE2 and PeopleCert is the organization administering and issuing the related certifications on behalf of Axelos.

Who should attend to the PRINCE2 Foundation course
The PRINCE2 Foundation qualification is intended for project managers and aspiring project managers.
It is also relevant to other key staff involved in the design, development and delivery of projects, including project board members (e.g., senior responsible owners), team managers (e.g. product delivery managers), project assurance (e.g., business change analysts), project support (e.g., Project and Programme Office personnel), and operational line managers/staff.
It is a “must” have certification for project managers, portfolio or programme offices staff and project resources operating in organizations that have or will adopt PRINCE2 as their methodology for project management.
What to do to get PRINCE2 Foundation certified
You can prepare for the PRINCE2 Foundation examination in several ways. You can decide to learn autonomously and directly attempt the examination, but this is approach is recommended only when the candidate has already a good level of knowledge in Project Management and has access to PRINCE2 official manual.
The recommended approach is following an accredited official course that has been checked by Peoplecert on behalf of Axelos and that covers all the topics needed to know for the examination at the correct level of depth. This approach not only is more effective, but it is also more efficient in most cases as it allows to focus on what is really needed for successful learning.
PRINCE2 Foundation Mock Exam
Another possibility to assess your preparation before the final exam is taking the official PeopleCert Mock Exam.
You can purchase your PRINCE2 6th edition Foundation mock exam as an option within your course with exam or exam only package or you can purchase it separately as an item at the top of this page.
Mock exams are one of the best ways to engage in practice & tackle exam-anxiety, through sitting in an environment that simulates examination and makes the actual examination much easier to handle.
