The trainer was very experienced

People at Knowledge Train set realistic expectations, have very clear objectives for their courses and work with you to achieve those objectives. You can feel that they are invested in creating a didactic atmosphere that is both relaxing and academically strong. Success in obtaining the certification is just a natural outcome. I would be saying the same even if I had not obtained my PRINCE2 Practitioner certification.

Course details

  • This 3-day training course includes everything you should need to achieve the PRINCE2 Foundation qualification. This qualification is widely regarded as essential if you are involved in projects. 
  • Our courses are designed and taught to give you the greatest chance of passing your exams. This is reflected in our PRINCE2 Foundation pass rate of 99.5%.
  • We also like to save you time. Our exclusive online pre-course study materials have pinpointed the most essential aspects of the PRINCE2 syllabus. This is a big advantage for you because you can prepare for the course in just 3-4 hours, instead of the 16+ hours required by many other training providers. 
  • Knowledge Train is based in Dubai and London and is a PRINCE2 Accredited Training Organisation, which means you can be confident that our courses conform to the highest standards of project management training.

Why this qualification?

  • With this qualification you will be able to work as an informed member of a project team. It is a pre-requisite for taking the PRINCE2 Practitioner qualification which is recommended if you manage projects.
  • The PRINCE2 Foundation course is also ideal if you are looking for a career change, as no previous project management experience is necessary.
  • The PRINCE2 Foundation training course is designed to give you a thorough understanding of PRINCE2. You will learn about the PRINCE2 approach to projects – its principles, themes, processes, and techniques, and you will be well prepared to pass the PRINCE2 Foundation exam at the end of the training course.

Who is this for?

A PRINCE2 Foundation course is your ideal starting point if you are working on a PRINCE2 project team. Many of our delegates take the Foundation course with the aim of applying their PRINCE2 knowledge at work. They then go on to study the PRINCE2 Practitioner at a later date after gaining more experience of PRINCE2.

If your career goals differ from the ones listed please feel free to discuss your goals with our specialist advisors on +971 (0)4-253-5062. They can advise you on choosing a course which best suits your career.

I work on projects and want to learn new skills to bring back to work

As a delegate taking our PRINCE2 Foundation course you will become equipped with the terminology and knowledge about how PRINCE2 works. You will immediately be able to go back to work and speak this new vocabulary and be able to act as an informed member of a project team.

Even if you do not regard yourself as a project manager in a formal sense but just find yourself more involved in projects at work you will benefit from this course.

I am unemployed and want the qualification to put on my CV

Even if you are an experienced project manager and perhaps have been made redundant or are in between contracts, you can benefit from a PRINCE2 Foundation course. You might have found that not having PRINCE2 on your CV is hindering your job search. That’s where this course will help you.

Although taking a PRINCE2 Foundation course doesn’t qualify you as a registered practitioner, having PRINCE2 Foundation on your CV will instantly increase your chances of employment. Alongside your previous project experience, it shows that you know the PRINCE2 terminology and are capable of working as an informed member of a PRINCE2 project team.

I want to change career and work in project management

You will find that PRINCE2 is widely recognised as an essential starting point when looking for many jobs, not just project management jobs.

Even if you want to make a complete career change you will find that many jobs require project management skills that are transferable. This is true even for project work at university. We have trained beginners who are from unrelated backgrounds such as consultancy, military, merchandising and even nursing who have then gone on to work in project management.

One thing to remember however, is that if you want to work in project management, gaining a full Practitioner qualification is recommended. PRINCE2 Practitioner is a higher level qualification and shows you can apply PRINCE2 to simple projects. In that respect, a more suitable course for you would be the PRINCE2 Foundation & Practitioner course.

I want to organise PRINCE2 training for my colleagues

If your organization wants to train its staff in the world’s most popular project management methodology, then we can help. We’ve been delivering in-house PRINCE2 training for over 10 years. Our knowledgeable and dedicated trainers can help your staff get quickly up to speed with PRINCE2 and help them gain professional PRINCE2 Foundation certification as well.

To help us better understand your PRINCE2 training requirements, call one of our expert advisors now on +971 (0)4-253-5062 or complete this form.

Course and exam structure

The course lasts for 3 days. There is some pre-course reading of approximately 3-4 hours. Homework of between 1-2 hours per night will be set.

During this course, you will gain an understanding of the PRINCE2 framework and its terminology. At the end of the course you will take a 1 hour multiple choice closed book exam containing 75 questions and must score a minimum of 35 correct answers to pass. Our courses are designed and taught to give you the greatest chance of passing your exams. This is reflected in our PRINCE2 Foundation pass rate of 99.5%.

Really well executed

It was well-structured and clearly taught with the aim of passing the exam at the forefront. However, the course included a lot of useful information moving forward to help fully understand the PRINCE2 manual. All in all, really well executed.

Really enjoyed Knowledge Train

I really enjoyed Knowledge Train. Good location, learning environment, trainer and well-priced. I have done courses elsewhere, but I did not enjoy them as much.

Trainer was one of the best

Very good course in excellent surroundings. The class sizes are of a good size to accomodate every person's needs. The trainer, Kobus, was one of the best that I have been trained by, and he really put me at ease. Kobus had an excellent way of making a very 'dry' subject matter enjoyable, and simplified the PRINCE2 manual for us all to understand.

Good everyday examples

Intense and you do need to complete the pre-course study. However, I am new to project management, so maybe thats why I felt this way! Otherwise, the course delivery was very good. Teacher gave very good everyday examples to help it make sense. He had a great sense of humour. All course members were included in discussions. Not an easy subject for anyone to teach, but he made it as fun as possible!

Kobus is very knowledgeable

Very fast-paced. Took me a while to adapt to a new learning style. Kobus is very knowledgeable and knew the subject matter exceptionally well. He was able to answer any question posed whilst relating it back to the content in the book to explain fully.
