Smart PM PRINCE2® Foundation Course

The PRINCE2 Foundation Course is an intensive course which will require a minimum of 10 hours of pre-course reading for an experienced delegate. Delegates with little or no project environment experience should allow more time than this. There are no prerequisites for enrolment to this course.

Course objectives

To provide delegates with the detailed knowledge of the background, principles, structure and terminology used in the PRINCE2 2009 Edition project management method and to prepare them to sit the PRINCE2 foundation examination.

Who is the course designed for?

The course is designed for those playing or wishing to play a role in a project management team including Project Managers, Project Support, Project Assurance, Team Managers or even Team members wishing to gain a thorough understanding of the method and to gain the foundation qualification.
The foundation qualification is the first step to qualification as a PRINCE2 practitioner and as such delegates wishing to go on to the practitioner course must achieve a pass at this level first.
