Purpose of the PRINCE2 Foundation
The Foundation Level certification introduces the PRINCE2 method and aims to
confirm that you know and understand the PRINCE2 method well enough to be
able to work effectively with, or as a member of, a project management team
working within an environment supporting PRINCE2. The Foundation
certification is also a pre-requisite for the Practitioner
PRINCE2 6th edition Foundation Training
Typically, classroom training for PRINCE2 6th edition Foundation lasts two
and a half days and the examination takes place at the end of the training
(this will vary depending on the training provider). You can also self-study
for the Foundation exam and you may also choose to take training in another
format such as distance learning. Training is delivered by Axelos'
Accredited Training Organizations (ATOs) who set their own rates.
This certification is aimed at current and aspiring project managers or
professionals who manage projects. 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 or staff.
