Will there be any ITIL V3 Foundation to ITIL 4 Foundation bridging courses?
There is no official bridging examination for current ITIL V3 Foundation holders to ITIL 4 Foundation. If you currently hold the ITIL V3 Foundation certification, you will need to take ITIL 4 Foundation to be certified in the new ITIL certification scheme.
Don't worry, we have created our 2-day ITIL 4 Foundation Bridge training course for existing ITIL Foundation holders, but you will still be required to take the full one hour ITIL 4 Foundation exam. Alternatively, you can continue to accumulate ITIL V3 credits to take the ITIL 4 Managing Professional Transition examination.
We have some great news if you hold credits from ITIL Practitioner and Intermediate/MALC modules, you can benefit from the ITIL 4 Managing Professional Transition (MPT) Module, which is now available. The ITIL 4 Managing Professional Transition Module (MPT) consists of a certified training course and examination enabling ITIL V3 (2011 Edition) certified professionals to transition to ITIL 4.
To be eligible to take the ITIL 4 Managing Professional Transition Module (MPT), you should hold one of the following:
Purple Griffon encourage you to continue with your journey accumulating current ITIL credits in oder to transition quicker and more easily to ITIL 4.
Below is the new ITIL 4 certification scheme and information released by AXELOS Limited as of November, 2018.

If you are going to embark on the road to ITIL Expert or are already on that journey, then we would highly recommend that you start soon and continue, although we do not have official timescales yet from AXELOS Global Best Practice, the likelihood is that you will have between 12 to 18 months to get to ITIL Expert level.
Remember, you can always earn the ITIL 4 Foundation level qualification, then take the ITIL V3 Intermediate training courses if you wish.
