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:
Our ITIL® Lifecycle Bundle includes the following courses:
Our ITIL® Lifecycle Bundle is the low cost, high quality way to achieve ITIL® Expert status. You can study over a 12 month period, with full access to all these courses during that time.
Our ITIL® Lifecycle Bundle is a set of online courses that contains all of the five intermediate ITIL® Lifecycle courses and ITIL® Managing Across The Lifecycle .
Our ITIL® Lifecycle Bundle means:
IT Professional's who wish to achieve the ITIL® Expert Certification through the ITIL® Lifecycle modules as well as those who wish to study in their own time, and at their own pace.
ITIL® Lifecycle Bundle Online (365 Days) Includes:
Your access duration time starts as soon as you access the course, or after 28 days - whichever is sooner.
By understanding and using ITIL® your IT organisation can move towards a Service Management culture where your IT team can be (and is recognised as) a key player in the success of your customers and users.
ITIL® helps you to attain that key status by understanding the link between IT services and customer/user outcomes. ITIL® then helps to understand the best ways to manage those services, making your IT organisation indispensable to your customers.
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!
