The Foundation Course covers:

  • PRINCE2's Principles and how they empower the project team;
  • Its Themes, or approaches to critical aspects of project management, including:
    • Organisation;
    • Business Case;
    • Risk;
    • Plans;
    • Change;
    • Progress;
    • Quality
  • The PRINCE2 Process Model, its flow of control and information, roles involved and their activities, and how to assemble the elements of the Process Model to form Stage Plans;
  • Guidance on how to tailor PRINCE2 to suit project needs, and how to embed PRINCE2 into the organisational context of projects;
  • Hands on activities, discussions, role plays, quizzes and mind maps in every session to ensure you have absorbed PRINCE2;
  • Guidance on how to prepare for the Foundation Exam, with lots of practice.

The Practitioner Seminar is a scenario based training course focusing on the application of PRINCE2 under different project environments and scenarios. Review and revision sessions of all PRINCE2 elements are included throughout the training.

Exclusive to Inspiring Projects, we have developed a full set of Practitioner-style exam questions based on a realistic scenario, to provide even more opportunity to apply and learn PRINCE2.

The Foundation Exam is a 1 hour closed book exam. There are 75 multiple choice questions. The candidate must correctly answer 50% or more of the questions to pass the exam.

The Practitioner Exam is a 2½ hour, open manual, scenario based multiple choice exam. The candidate must provide responses to questions presented in the following styles:

  • Classical multiple choice
