PRINCE2 Foundation - Gain a basic understanding of the method behind PRINCE2

Our PRINCE2® Foundation course gives you the fundamental tools to be able to involve you in projects and project work. With a PRINCE2 Foundation course, you will thus be able to contribute to managing projects successfully to completion.

PRINCE2® is an internationally recognized method of project management, which is developed based on experts and companies' best practice processes. Today, it is the leading project management method internationally and is widespread in over 90 countries and translated into 11 languages.

The PRINCE2 Foundation course is a natural choice when choosing a project manager certification that provides broad knowledge and several useful tools that can be used directly after the course.

The PRINCE2 Foundation certification is a powerful addition to your resume. For you who already work with projects, the course gives you a paper on your project management skills and for you who want to expand your career opportunities to be able to apply for jobs within project management and project work, the course is the most sought certification in project-related jobs.

Our PRINCE2 Foundation course can be taken both as a physical class course, virtual teaching, or as adaptive e-learning. We also offer these other courses within PRINCE2:

Our senior consultant and teacher, Steen Knudsen, talks about who usually takes a PRINCE2® Foundation course, what you get out of it and what you usually use your new knowledge and certification for. (Video is in Danish)

With a PRINCE2® course, you expand your set of competencies to include the most internationally recognized project management procedures used in all sizes of companies worldwide. Therefore, PRINCE2® Foundation is a strong course choice if you want to work on projects and have a foot in the project world.

A PRINCE2® Foundation certification gives a blue stamp to your CV and a lot of skills you can use in and out of project work.

NOTE: From 1 February 2022, PeopleCert will change the setup for all PRINCE2 courses

From 1 February, all PRINCE2 courses include an electronic book as well as a voucher based exam.

It is thus not possible to buy a PRINCE2 course without a book or exam, and therefore we state our price as a total price all incl. If you want a physical book, this must be purchased separately, and you will still receive an e-book in your course package.

With a voucher based exam, you take the exam according to your teaching course, at a time that suits you.

With us, you get, as something completely unique, access to our e-learning both for preparation, but also for repetition after your course.

About PRINCE2 Foundation

As something completely unique, in preparation for your class course, you get access to our PRINCE2 Foundation E-learning, which can be used for your preparation before the class course. You also have access to the e-learning after the course, and can therefore use this for repetition before your certification exam. It ensures even higher learning and a better opportunity to pass.

The PRINCE2 course consists of three days of teaching in Danish by an experienced PRINCE2 trainer.

The course consists of lectures, group work, homework and exams.

The PRINCE2 Foundation includes the official PRINCE2 manual as an e-book. The book is included in the course price and you will receive access to it after registration has been received.

You will receive a detailed reading guide in preparation.

There is full board during the course days on all physical class courses.

Exam & Certification

There are two test exams, as well as the official PRINCE2 foundation certification exam.

The exam is multiple choice with 60 questions. 33 correct of the 60 valid answers are required to pass.

We offer an extra exam attempt if you do not pass the first time!

What do the students say about our PRINCE2 Foundation course?

Cecilie Gry Pedersen

Cecilie Gry Pedersen

People & Culture Consultant, ISS World Services

The PRINCE2 course was changed from physical to online shortly before the event, which worked quite well. There was control over preparation, materials and curricula. Great praise to the teacher, Steen, who is calm, attentive and had control of the theory. It is obvious that Steen has a great interest in the subject, and this spreads to the participants. Thank you for a really good PRINCE2 course ’.

PRINCE2 Foundation Course books

  • PRINCE2® - Projektledelse med succes

    PRINCE2® - Projektledelse med succes

    SKU 7324 - ISBN 978-0-11-331556-7

    Paperback. Delivered by DAO. Freight costs will be added at checkout.

    Den nyeste version af PRINCE2® metoden anvender principper, processer og produkter til succesfuld projektledelse på en mere fleksibel måde

    Brugerne af metoden bliver således udstyret med et metodeapparat som tilsiger tilpasning til det konkrete projekt – kvalitetsniveau, risikoeksponering, værdirealisering, styring- og rapporteringsniveau samt hyppigheden af leverancer skal justeres. Derved undgås den klassiske fejltagelse med at man ’skyder gråspurve med kanoner’, opbygger unødig bureaukrati og dermed spilder projektlederens og virksomhedens tid.

    PRINCE2® har altid været kompatibel med agile udviklingsmetoder, men det har ikke været den udbredte opfattelse blandt projektledere i praksis. I den nye version redegøres der mere fyldestgørende for hvordan elementerne kan tilpasses til agile udviklingsmetoder og andre situationer fx hvis projektet er lille, del af et program osv. Der findes en selvstændig bog med tilhørende kurser, PRINCE2 Agile®, som behandler, dybdegående, hvordan projekter tilpasses til agile udviklingsmetoder.

    En tiltrængt opdatering af metoden, som gør den anvendelig i mange år fremover, alt sammen beskrevet i den nye bog ”PRINCE2® - Projektledelse med succes”, som kan købes hos Westergaard.

    Bogen beskriver kort og præcist hvordan metoden er bygget på med 7 principper, 7 processer og 7 temaer og hvordan disse elementer kan tilpasses til en række konkrete situationer. Bogen fungerer ligeledes som et opslagsværk for den erfarne projektleder, og kan bruges af virksomheder som ønsker af professionalisere deres projektstyring.
