The purpose of the ITIL® Managing Across the Lifecycle (MALC) course is the final step in you achieving the ITIL® Expert qualification.This focuses on the integration of the service management processes right across the lifecycle, but also includes the key aspects of:
This five-day course will help you to gain a clear understanding how all the processes across the lifecycle interact, and will convert your knowledge from 'content' as learned on previous courses, to 'application'. So this course will enable you to identify how the service management processes should be implemented and how information should be passed and received from one process to another.
The course ends with a two hour, scenario based, ten question multiple-choice exam, with the pass mark being 35/50 (70%). You will be appropriately prepared for this by our tutors throughout the course. Included in this preparation will be the opportunity to answer practice exam papers, which will raise your confidence levels.
This course is split in to modules. The following modules aim to give you a thorough understanding of each course topic:
The ITIL® MALC certificate is the final course in the ITIL® accreditation stream, which builds on the knowledge gained from the previous courses and takes you from ITIL® content knowledge to ITIL® content application and integration
The primary focus for this ITIL® MALC certification is to take your knowledge gained in either the Capability or Lifecycle phase courses but then to take this into how you would integrate the stages and processes into a consistent and applicable bundle.
All of our tutors are experienced Service Management experts, and they will explain in detail, the relevant aspects of the MALC certification.
You will learn about the following topics:
• Key concepts of the service lifecycle
• Communication and stakeholder management
• Integrating service management processes across the service lifecycle
• Managing services across the service lifecycle
• Governance and organisation
• Implementing and improving service management capability
You should attend this course if you:
Through gaining an understanding of Managing Across the Lifecycle, this will ensure that the IT teams can deliver/implement the required, aligned, processes that will drive benefits for the business, by ensuring that service delivery will meet their expectations.
From the customer's point of view, that means they are able to completely rely on the IT services to help them achieve their desired results. From the IT team's perspective, consistently good service delivery means less fire-fighting leading to the ability to take a more proactive approach to service delivery.
You will gain an understanding of how to be a more effective – and therefore more valued - team member through the understanding of how to implement or improve the service management processes within your organisation.
By developing your knowledge further, you will likely gain significant experience and kudos over your peers in your organisation, and benefits such as a promotion within your own or other organisations, in order to advance your career will likely become more available!

Please note that from May 2015 PeopleCert requires all MALC exam candidates to provide a paper photocopy of their ITIL Foundation Certificate; together with all other ITIL Intermediate Certificates which when combined carry the necessary minimum 17 credits. These will be collected by the course tutor and sent off with the exam pack. Please ensure you bring these with you on the first day of your course. If you fail to do so you will NOT be able to sit the exam.
The course ends with a 120 minute 'closed book' exam of a multiple-choice, scenario based, gradient-scored paper of 10 questions. Each question will have 4 possible answer options, one which is worth 5 marks, one which is worth 3 marks, one which is worth 1 mark, and one which is a distracter and achieves no marks.
In order to achieve the pass mark, you must achieve at least 35 marks out of possible 50 (70% is the target).
