PRINCE2® Foundation is a 3-day non-residential course with nightly homework, which covers the method and syllabus for the PRINCE2® Foundation exam. The optional Foundation exam is a 1 hour, 75 questions, multiple choice paper in which you must get 50% or 38 questions correct in order to pass. The paper is taken at the end of the training and marked straight away so that you know your mark before leaving the course.
We make our training highly relevant and easy to apply using live case studies taken straight out of course delegates' experience. Syndicate group members gain practical skills by using the techniques to handle real issues and we keep class sizes small to enable individual attention.
This course has been accredited by the APMG who are the examining body for PRINCE2® and responsible for all aspects of the provision of exams including setting, marking, feedback and appeals. Scoll Methods, as an accredited training organisation, acts as their agent in providing administrative facilities.
