The PRINCE2 Foundation exam
is aimed at measuring whether a candidate could act as an informed member of a project management team on a project using the PRINCE2 method, within an environment supporting PRINCE2. To this end the candidate needs to be able to show he or she understands the principles and terminology of the method, specifically:
- The purpose & responsibilities of all roles.
- The 7 principles, 7 themes, 7 processes, and the Product-based Planning and Quality Review techniques.
- Which management products are input to, output from, and updated in the seven processes.
- The purpose of all management products and the composition of the Business Case, Product Descriptions, Issue Report and the Issue, Risk and Quality Registers.
- The relationship between principles, processes, themes, deliverables & roles within a PRINCE2 project.
English PRINCE2 exams are already available in the new 2017 version. All other language mutations of PRINCE2 exams still are and will remain available in the 2009 version. English exams can be sat in the 2009 version until 31.12.2017. However, we recommend the new version of exams to all those wanting to sit their exam in English. PRINCE2 2017 exams have fewer questions than PRINCE2: 2009 exams, with the same total time available to answer them.
