This online course will give you a robust knowledge and grounding in PRINCE2®, the world’s most popular project management methodology. You will earn an internationally recognised PRINCE2® Foundation certificate when you successfully complete the course.

PRINCE2® (PRojects IN Controlled Environments) is a dynamic project management framework that can be adapted to any type of project in any industry. It is a structured project management method that divides projects into manageable and controllable stages.

This course will teach you the concepts and skills needed to join and be a valuable asset to a project management team using the PRINCE2 methodology. The Foundation certification is also a prerequisite for the Practitioner certification.

On completion you will be able to:

  • Describe the purpose and major content of all roles, the seven principles, the seven themes and the seven processes
  • State which management products are input to, and output from the seven processes
  • State the main purpose, and key contents of, the major management products
  • State the relationships between processes, deliverables, roles and the management dimensions of a project.

Please see our blog here for more information.

Unsure if you should complete the PRINCE2  or the Certified Associate in Project Management qualification? Please see our blog here for a comparison of them both.
