PRINCE2® Foundation

e-Learning course

PRINCE2 (PRojects IN Controlled Environments) is a de facto process-based method for effective project management. PRINCE2 is internationally recognised and widely used in both the private and public sector.

The PRINCE2 project management method focuses on the management aspects of a project, rather than specialist areas such as design. Once you have mastered the management principles of PRINCE2, integrating the inputs from these specialists into construction projects following the PRINCE2 methodology can be achieved easily, and also provides a secure overall framework for the project work.

This interactive e-learning course will teach you the fundamental skills, applied in context to a project, and clearly outline the benefits of adopting PRINCE2 methodology.

The PRINCE2 method is in the public domain, and offers non-proprietorial best practice guidance on project management.

  • Identify characteristics and context of a project and the benefits of adopting PRINCE2
