Certification Exam

The Foundation Exam is a 60 minute closed book multiple choice exam. A candidate must get at least 35 of the 70 questions correct to pass.

The examination is conducted by PeopleCert, subject to their terms and conditions.

EZY Skills will book your examinations with PeopleCert. PeopleCert will then contact you by email and ask you to register in their candidate system. They will also let you know how to schedule the date and time you wish to take your examination.

Your course fee allows for a “one time” sitting at the examination. Please be aware that if you schedule an examination with PeopleCert but do not take that examination as scheduled, PeopleCert will charge you an additional fee for the examination. You will not be able to reschedule a missed examination until this additional fee has been paid.

Reference Manuals

Each Foundation course is self-contained; students will not need the reference manual to pass the Foundation examination

Follow-on Courses

We reccomend that those who have completed the Foundation course should move on to the M_o_R Practitioner course as soon as possible, while their knowledge of M_o_R remains fresh.

The most economical way to take both Foundation and Practitioner courses is our M_o_R Combined Foundation and Practitioner course.

We also reccomend our Project Management Courses
