PRINCE2® Foundation (6th edition)

Basic project certificate

PRINCE2® Foundation

Course covers the basics of the world’s most popular project management methodology.

The PRINCE2® (PRojects IN Controlled Environments) project management methodology is one of the best-known project certifications. Course participants will acquire practical knowledge of methods as regards project activities.

PRINCE2® Foundation is the basic certificate of the PRINCE2® project management methodology. During a 3-day training course, you will master PRINCE2® principles, processes, and terminology that can be applied to large and small projects across various sectors. You will learn how to prevent unnecessary cost increases and avoid excessive administration, and work systematically and in teams.

Unlike other methodologies, this course does not require prior qualifications. It is open to all applicants looking for an effective way to systematically manage large and small projects. A key advantage is that the methodology is general and applicable to all project types and specializations and is the most widespread standard. Previous experience in project management will make it easier to understand the methodology, but is not essential.

The certification is intended for:

  • Junior and senior project staff
  • Managers responsible for the implementation of strategic goals
  • All project team members, including the client
  • Consultants implementing the methodology (project management principles)

The PRINCE2® Foundation course is suitable for all team members who wish to participate (directly or indirectly) in a successful project implementation.


The validity of the PRINCE2® Foundation certificate is for 3 years even if the methodology is updated.

The certificate is issued in English, irrespective of the language in which the PRINCE2® Foundation exam is taken. It does not specify the individual’s score in the final test. The certificate is often used as an official confirmation of a successful completion of education by project managers for public procurement.

  • "The tutor Robert, as an experienced project manager, knew how to inform in an engaging way, not only to long-term project coordinators who solve projects in a more methodical way, but also to beginners in project management. A big bonus for me was that Robert made the course of the training special with short presentations linked to his life experiences.
