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:

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 on how Planning, protection and optimisation forms the core of the Service Design stage of the ITIL® Lifecycle and works to try and ensure that designs meet organisational requirements (both now and in the future) and support the outcomes the organisation needs to achieve to be considered successful.
It will also become apparent from the training that any flaws in the service design activities will inevitably lead to a service that fails to meet the organisational needs and requirements, resulting in the need for remedial work being undertaken within the production environment, leading to dissatisfaction from the organisation, and additional workload for IT in trying to correct the design faults that exist.
By having a better understanding of the Best Practice framework, and in this particular course, Planning, protection and optimisation, it will enable you to identify areas for improvement back at the workplace, and allow you to develop your current role further, and help you do your job better.The reward being advancement within your company and a potential to increase your salary!
