Description

Who is this course for

This course is for anyone that needs to know more about the latest version of the world's most used Service Management framework. Delegates that are involved with an organisation that practices IT Service Management (ITSM) or hope to be should start here. Delegates that already hold an ITIL v3 Foundation certificate but haven't taken their studies further should also start here as this course expands on their existing knowledge and takes it in new directions.

N.B. If a candidate has more than 6 points from the existing ITIL v3 qualification scheme and is anticipating completing ITIL v3 Expert or ITIL 4 Managing Professional qualifications, they may not need to attend this course; although it would still be beneficial.
