The purpose of the PRINCE2 Foundation certification is to confirm you know and understand the PRINCE2 method sufficiently well to be able to work effectively with, or as a member of, a project management team working within an environment supporting PRINCE2. The Foundation certification is also a prerequisite for the Practitioner certification. Upon successful completion of the training and examination, students will receive the PRINCE2 Foundation certification.
