BCS Foundation Certificate in IS Project Management (ISEB)

Our BCS Foundation Certificate in IS Project Management training course and exam is available to be delivered on-site at your organisation at a time to suit you.

Course Overview

This 3 day course covers the syllabus and exam for the BCS Foundation Certificate in IS Project Management.

The IS Project Management Foundation Certificate provides an understanding of the principles of project management, including those that relate to project planning, monitoring and control, change control and configuration management, effort estimation, quality and risk management and communication between project stakeholders.

Intended Audience

This certificate is appropriate for anyone involved in or affected by IT projects.

Fit with PRINCE2

This course is a suitable addition for individuals who already hold the Prince qualification.

At a high level, PRINCE2 provides a framework for projects in terms of what needs to be done, by whom and by when. The Foundation Certificate in IS Project Management provides a range of techniques of how those things can be done. An example would be that in PRINCE2, a critical step of creating a plan is estimating, but it does not say how estimating should be done as this would depend on the project type and context. The Foundation Certificate in IS Project Management provides an explanation and analysis of various estimating techniques that are available so that a Project Manager or Business Analyst can decide which would be most suitable to use.
