• PRINCE2® (PRojects IN Controlled Environment) is a structured and formal method of efficient project management.
  • PRINCE2® is an international standard, used as a preferred project management approach with organisations around the world.
  • PRINCE2® can be applied to all kinds of projects and situations.
  • It gives a written description of how to manage a project in a logical, organised way, following defined steps.

A successful method for project management

Writing your organisation's own customised set of standards can be a time-consuming and costly business. Then why not using an existing best practice standard and flexing it to your organisation's needs? The use of PRINCE2® is free. Users can employ the method for their own projects without being tied to specific consultants.

The result?

Thousands of people around the world are fully qualified as PRINCE2® practitioners. This creates a virtuous circle: the more people who have taken the PRINCE2® exams, the more benefit there is in organisations adopting it, and the more organisations that adopt it, the more people there will be who become qualified to use it.

Why go for your PRINCE2® Foundation?

The PRINCE2® Foundation does what it says: it lays the grounds. It can best be compared with passing the theoretical test for your driving licence.

After passing your Foundation exam, you will understand the full extend of what PRINCE2® can mean for your projects. You will know the common language, the rules, the responsibilities, the tools, the structured steps, the planning stages, etc, in order to finish your projects on time, within budget and without sleepless nights, …

Hungry for more after your Foundation? The PRINCE2® Practitioner will be the equivalent of your 'on the road' driving licence examination, where you will be trained to use PRINCE2® in full.


The PRINCE2® Foundation exam is a closed book examination with 75 questions to be completed in one hour. 35 correct answers are required to pass.

  • you will have familiarized yourself with the full scope of PRINCE2® methods.

Clear materials, very good venue and enthousiastic teacher. A course that was delivered with a lot of professionalism.

Kurt Mommaert, Head of Professional Services, Xerox

I needed a course explaining me the basics for project management. This completely met my expectations and even more: it gave me new ideas about how to apply project management in my day-to-day work. I would recommend each person involved in projects & project management (even team members) to follow this training. It's an eye-opener about how you can manage your projects in an efficient way. Very good quality training.

The PRINCE2® Foundation gave me clear insight of what this methodology is all about. I would advice anyone who's interested in getting the basics to follow this course. I already had some experience with PRINCE2® but this course contains (when explained by the trainee) an interesting summary of what it is all about. A big 'thumbs up' for the trainer for having explained it very well!
