P3O Foundation

P3O Foundation Course

The P3O Foundation course is designed for people who require a general level of P3O understanding.

P3O Foundation aims to confirm that a candidate has sufficient knowledge and understanding of the P3O guidance to interact effectively with, or act as an informed member of, an office within a P3O model. To this end participants need to show that they understand the principles and terminology of the P3O guide.

Following the completion of the P3O course participants should:

  • Be able to describe the high-level P3O model and know the differences between Portfolio, Programme and Project Management
  • Know the arguments for establishing a P3O model and measuring its success
  • Describe the purpose and major content of all roles
  • State the key functions and services of a P3O
  • Describe tools and techniques used by a P3O
  • Know how to develop a governance structure that helps optimize an organisation’s investment in change alongside its Business as Usual
  • Pass the Foundation exam to get the P3O certification.
  • Members of offices within a P3O model
  • Anyone who needs to understand the terminology and concepts underpinning P3O and those wishing to pursue higher level qualifications.
  • 1 hour
  • 75 questions
  • Objective Test Questions
  • 50% pass mark
  • Closed book

Upon successful completion of the exam and following confirmation of the results, the participants will receive a unique, secure and auditable electronic certificate from PeopleCert.

It is desirable, but not essential, that participants have some work-experience on projects and programmes. Some pre-read material is provided prior to the training and is expected to be fully read before attending the P3O course.

The following course material is included for this P3O training:

  • Pre-Course Study Materials

The course preparation materials include a structured Pre-Course Study Guide – available online
