Following the successful launch of ITIL® 4, with the higher modules from the Managing Professional and Strategic Leader streams establishing themselves in the market - AXELOS has taken the decision to stop offering the previous version of the World’s leading certification in IT Service Management, ITIL V3, by the end of 2021.
There will be a phased approach to discontinuing the Foundation and Intermediate examinations to allow you enough time to complete your ITIL V3 Intermediate level certifications, so you can accumulate enough credits to qualify for the Transition examination.
Please Note: The confirmed timings are as follows:
The ITIL® Service Transition course focuses on managing transitions of services and processes to ensure that the maximum benefits are delivered to the target organisations. This three-day course will help you to understand the issues around controlling the building, testing and implementation of changes to services – and why it is important to do so. You’ll also find out how Service Transition processes can apply throughout the Service Management Lifecycle, for example how Knowledge Management can underpin decisions in both Strategy and Operations. The course also covers the importance of understanding how transitions can affect people and how to manage them though changes to a successful conclusion.
The course ends with a one and a half hour, scenario based, eight question multiple-choice exam, with the pass mark being 28/40 (70%). You will be appropriately prepared for this by our tutors throughout the course. Included in this preparation will be the opportunity to answer two practice exam papers, which will raise your confidence levels.
This course is made up of the modules listed below.Each module aims to help you understand each section and give you a full understanding of each subject.
