PRINCE2 Foundation Examination
The purpose of the foundation level is to confirm that you have sufficient knowledge and understanding of the PRINCE2 method to be able to work effectively with, or as a member of, a project management team working within an environment supporting PRINCE2. There are no pre-requisite qualifications before taking the foundation examination. Candidates must achieve a pass at PRINCE2 Foundation level before completing the PRINCE2 Practitioner examination.
The PRINCE2 Foundation exam format:
- Multiple choice
- 75 questions per paper
- 5 questions to be trial and not counted in scores
- 35 marks required to pass (out of 70 available) – 50%
- 60 minutes duration
- Closed book.
On successful completion of the PRINCE2 Foundation exam the gained qualification is not valid for a defined period and will not expire. Candidates who pass the PRINCE2 Practitioner exam are recognised as a ‘PRINCE2 Registered Practitioner’. Individuals will remain registered for a period of 5 years. To maintain the registered status, practitioners must complete and pass a PRINCE2 re-registration examination 3-5 years following their initial/previous practitioner certification.
