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. To undertake the PRINCE2 Foundation online exam, 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.

As you plan your PRINCE2 Foundation journey, it's essential to consider factors such as PRINCE2 Foundation exam cost, PRINCE2 Foundation exam fee, PRINCE2 Foundation cost, and PRINCE2 Foundation exam price. By doing so, you can make informed decisions that align with your budget and ensure a smooth and rewarding certification process. Investing in an accredited PRINCE2 Foundation course can prove to be a valuable investment in your career, providing you with the knowledge and credentials to excel in project management and drive success in your organization.

PRINCE2 Foundation certification is subject to the PeopleCert Continuing Development Programme. This means that each candidate will need to undergo with a PRINCE2 recertification process to maintain their certificate. 


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 Foundation mock exam (PRINCE2 7 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.
