IT Service Management
Upon successfully achieving the ITIL Planning, Protection & Optimization certificate, the student will earn 4 credits in the ITIL qualification scheme.
The ITIL Foundation is an entry level training program. There are no pre-requites for entry to this exam. However IT experience is highly recommended.
Look to get trained from an Accredited Training Organization (ATO) as they are legally entitled to conduct the Training and Certification. Moreover, the syllabus and the trainer will be assessed and approved by AXELOS Limited- the governing body for ITIL.
Once you are ITIL Foundation certified, then you are eligible to take certification training at the Intermediate Level leading to ITIL Expert.
The Certification starts with ITIL Foundation. There are then two streams at the Intermediate Level. The prerequisite to take any of these Intermediate Courses is an ITIL Foundation Certificate. The two streams are:
To become an ITIL Expert you will have to earn a minimum of 22 credits. The credit per module is mentioned adjacent to each module. You can either do all the modules in the Service Life Cycle module or do all the modules in Capability or a combination from either stream. However to do MALC, which is mandatory, one needs to have minimum of 17 credits. Successfully passing the MALC Exam will earn the Candidate two certifications- one for completing MALC and the second one- the coveted ITIL Expert Certification!
Please refer to Question No.4.
The Course Duration is as per the credits awarded for each module. 3 days for Service Life Cycle, 4 days for Capability & 5 days for MALC.
The Service Life Cycle (SLC) is the core in ITIL. This stream is for those who are directly delivering customer facing services by executing the ITIL processes.
The Capability module is for those who are basically interested in designing, developing implementing processes that meet business objectives. For example; Process Owners, Process Managers, Process Practitioners etc.
The ATO will be offering the examination. The exams are offered in two formats; paper based and online. The online exam will display the result immediately. Whereas, it may take 3-4 working days to get the result of a paper based exam. Each Examination Institute uses their own model to conducting the exam.
There are many Examination Institutes that are accredited with AXELOS. They conduct the exams. Training Institutes, such as ezCertifications, have to be accredited with one or several of such Examination Institutes such as APMG International/TUV-SUD,Germany/EXIN.
Foundation Exam: You will need to score 26/40 (65%) to pass the Foundation Exam.
Intermediate Level Exams: You will need to score 28/40 (70%) to pass an Intermediate Exam.
MALC Exam: You will need to score 35/50 (70%) to pass the MALC exam.
There are no negative marks for any of the exams. The marks for Foundation are either1 for correct answer and 0 for wrong answer. For intermediate examination it is different as it is gradient based. The best answer will fetch full 5 marks. Nearly right answer will fetch 3, Slightly correct will fetch 1, and 0 for wrong answer.
There is no validation as such. If there is a major change- like it happened with ITIL v2 to ITIL v3, then there may be a bridge exam. However, currently there are no indications of a major change coming up.
All ITIL trainers must be "sponsored" by an ITIL Accredited Training Organization (ATO). They should have a minimum of 9 credits. Proof of Certification along with their profile should be forwarded by the ATOs lead trainer to the Examination Institute. The lead trainer should mentor the new trainer and the Examination Institute will also conduct an interview to assess the capability of the new trainer.
ITIL is recognised internationally as the best practice approach to IT Service Management aligning the provision of IT Services with the needs of the business. It is used globally by thousands of organisations throughout the private and public sectors to improve the way in which they implement and manage IT Services.
