Flawless project management
When participating in PRINCE2® Foundation, you will gain an insight into and work with the PRINCE2® method. With the PRINCE2® method, you will increase the success rate of your projects because you will be applying a method that eliminates the risk of errors and failed projects.
PRINCE2® gives you the tools to achieve more effective project management where the aim is increased business benefits. Furthermore, you will gain productive project management collaboration, both internally and externally in your organisation.
You can choose to participate in the course physically or virtually depending on which course date you select. Read more about the two options and the differences here.
Who takes part?
Project managers in private and public organisations. Some project experience is required as the course focuses on process-oriented project management according to the PRINCE2® method — not on specific tools for project management.
The course is for individuals wishing to gain an insight into the method. PRINCE2® is not a method that project managers can choose to use themselves. It is a general method, which the organisation can choose to follow in order to optimise project management. Hence, you may be involved in projects that are being conducted according to the PRINCE2® method, or you may collaborate with clients or suppliers who use the method.
On the course you will work on:
- Processes and sub-processes within the PRINCE2® method
- Planning, management and stages
- Quality project environment
- Change management Tips and advice for the exam
- Topics and principles of the PRINCE2® method
- Risk management
- Version management
The PRINCE2® method
PRINCE2® is a best-practice project management method, which ensures that the project organisation is in place from project start and that management roles and responsibilities have been agreed upon and made visible. The method consists of a process model that serves to guide the project management through all the processes required to ensure that the project delivers the result, which will generate the expected benefits from a business point of view. The cornerstone of the method is hence the business benefit.

The course is held either with physical attendance or as a virtual course – it depends on the selected course date. If there are currently no virtual options in the list of course dates, future dates will be announced soon.
This programme is a three-day non-residential course that includes preparatory work before the course and in the evenings during the course itself.
On the first 2.5 days of the course, we will review the PRINCE2® theory and you will practice answering exam questions individually and in groups. We will be using various exciting forms of instruction at the course to ensure variation and optimal learning.
Mannaz is an accredited PRINCE2® training organisation approved by PeopleCert on behalf of AXELOS who administers PRINCE2®. All course material is accredited by PeopleCert as well. The course and the exam will be conducted in English.
The content of the virtual course corresponds to the content of the physical course. It is merely the format and the practical implementation that differs.
The virtual course consists of 3 virtual course days and 2 hours of virtual exam preparation. All sessions are held in Zoom or Teams.
At Mannaz, we have extensive experience with virtual learning, and the course is designed to ensure that you get the maximum benefit. We can therefore guarantee that you receive the same benefit as on a physical course. Read more about virtual learning here.
You should plan to spend 40—50 hours of preparation reading and solving assignments.
You will receive the preparatory material 4—6 weeks prior to course start.
It is important that you prepare before the course starts in order to get the most out of it.
The individual assignments, which you complete in the evenings between course days, are an important part of preparing to pass the exam.
Examination for physical courses
On the final day of the course, you will complete your Foundation exam. A PRINCE2® Foundation exam consists of 60 multiple choice questions. You must answer at least 33 (55%) of these questions correctly to pass.
The exam is – as the entire course – in English and lasts 1 hour, if English is your native language, and an hour and ten minutes, if your native language is not English. You cannot use your PRINCE2®-manual as an assistive aid during the examination.
Shortly after the exam has ended, your instructor will inform you if you have passed the exam.
If you pass your exam, you will receive your official PRINCE2® Foundation certificate electronically directly from PeopleCert.
On the last day of the course you will be taking the official PRINCE2® Foundation exam.
Examination for virtual courses
After the virtual course, you will go through the official test exams and compare your answers to the answer sheet. Feel free to study the areas where you may have answered incorrectly.
Your exam takes places online directly through the official exam provider. You can choose your preferred day and time. You cannot use your PRINCE2®-manual as an assistive aid during the examination.
During your virtual course, you also will receive a detailed description of what you need to be aware of before the online exam.
The exams will be invigilated by one of our experienced and competent PRINCE2® facilitators, who use great presentation, variation and commitment to make the material interesting, vibrant and relevant.
All facilitators are accredited by PeopleCert on behalf of AXELOS .
Do you need tools?
Combine PRINCE2® Foundation with project management
With PRINCE2® you get the best-practice management method, which teaches you when to do what in your project – but not how to! In other words, PRINCE2® does NOT provide you with tools. It therefore makes good sense to combine PRINCE2® with Project Management 1 or IT Project Management 1. This will give you the tools as well, so that you know how to act to achieve greater success in your PRINCE2® projects.
*Price for two courses. The courses are booked together and conducted within six months. If you deregister from one of the courses, you will be invoiced for the full price of the course that you participated in.
