The foundation of knowledge

The first step to achieving an ITIL Expert qualification is to learn the framework and structure of ITIL itself. The 3-day foundation course provides an overview of ITIL and an extensive list of topics; including the service lifecycle structure and strategy, design and service operation.

The course will also prepare you for the Foundation Certificate exam – the first step toward achieving ITIL Expert certification.

Intermediate capabilities

Once you’ve completed the initial course and gained your foundation certificate, you can move on to capability or lifecycle modules. There are five capability certificate courses that cover the core service management aspects of ITIL.

The five-day course encompasses how to maintain control and maximise the quality of an IT service, the prevention of recurring errors and faults, issue reporting, response to customer and market requirements, and future strategic vision.

What makes an ITIL Expert?

The concluding and mandatory module of the ITIL Expert qualification is Managing Across the Lifecycle. This final course addresses the identification of management and business problems, risk management and organisational challenges.

Once you’ve finished the training and successfully passed your final exam, you’ll achieve your ITIL Expert qualification – proof of the new skills available to your team and business. With this certification, you can demonstrate a comprehensive approach to service management, and learn a common language to assist the ease of further learning.
