Why study this course

» This Foundation course usually runs consecutively with PRINCE2 Practitioner as a five-day Combined course at a reduced price.

PRINCE2® 7th Edition seeks to respond to changes that have taken place in the world and in the discipline of project management since the previous update in 2017.

The essence of PRINCE2 remains - with principles, practices (previously called themes), and a set of processes that comprise the lifecycle of a project. The 7th Edition has evolved to meet the demands of the digital revolution, the speed of change, the rise of Agile ways of working, and the increased volatility and uncertainty of all aspects of life. PRINCE2 7th Edition equips project managers with the tools, knowledge, and flexibility to effectively manage projects in today's dynamic environment. It provides guidance on integrating Agile practices, tailoring the method, focusing on benefits realisation, and offers practical case studies to support project managers in successfully delivering Agile and digital transformation projects.

What is PRINCE2?

  • It is a structured method for managing projects that is flexible, adaptable, and tailorable

  • It can be applied to any project, regardless of the purpose, scale, type, organisation, geography, or culture

  • It is practical, flexible, scalable and repeatable

  • It provides the “how to” for managing successful projects

What's new?

  • Integration of people - People are central to successful projects and now they are integrated into the PRINCE2 method

  • Project performance - Sustainability has been added as a seventh aspect of project performance to reflect modern organisational needs

  • Digital and data - To meet the evolving needs of project management professionals the addition of a digital and data management approach

What's improved?

  • Improved flexibility - Rules have been reduced and chapters streamlined while maintaining core elements of PRINCE2, showcasing the true value of the method to all projects across all sectors

  • PRINCE2 for all - Simplifications in language and content throughout the official book to widen the addressable market

  • Fully tailorable enabling agility - Tailoring is addressed throughout the whole method demonstrated using scenarios, allowing PMs to move quickly and easily in response to change or challenge

  • Evolving to changes in the PM space - Meeting new needs and requirements for an ever-changing profession

Included with this course is the PRINCE2 7 Managing Successful Projects official publication and the PRINCE2 Foundation Exam. On completion of the Foundation course, students will be provided supporting Axelos membership services online.


This course pricing includes a voucher for the PRINCE2 7 Foundation Exam, which is an online proctored exam through PeopleCert. Practice exam papers are provided in the course, and reviewed to assist in preparation.

The exam is:

  • One hour (60 minutes) duration

  • 60 multiple choice questions

  • Pass mark is 36 out of 60 (i.e. 60%)

  • Closed book

After passing the exam, each student’s certificate will be made available to them via PeopleCert.

It is highly recommended that you spend some time each evening of this course reviewing and consolidating what you’ve learned, to be well prepared for the exam.

Students are strongly encouraged to attend the Practitioner course immediately after the Foundation course. This is because the Practitioner exam requires strong current knowledge of the PRINCE2 7 Managing Successful Projects official publication. This knowledge is gained in the Foundation course and therefore is still fresh for assisting with passing the Practitioner exam.
